EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Vince Carter scored 31 points and Richard Jefferson had 30, leading New Jersey past Toronto in overtime. New Jersey's Jason Kidd finished with 14 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds for his 72nd career triple-double and his fifth this season, tops in the league. Morris Peterson led Toronto with 25 points and Chris Bosh had 23, 21 in the second half. Toronto took a 91-89 lead in overtime on Charlie Villanueva's two free throws before New Jersey scored 10 of the next 13 points. The Raptors, who went the final 6:10 of regulation with one field goal, didn't make another until Mike James' drive with 22 seconds left in overtime. Peterson made three free throws after being fouled on a 3-point attempt by Jacque Vaughn with 2:36 left in the extra period, but Vaughn redeemed himself with consecutive jumpers to give New Jersey a 99-94 lead.
