After scoring an NBA record-low two points in the fourth quarter, the Warriors blew a lead in overtime as Peterson buried a three-pointer with 2.1 seconds left to lift the Toronto Raptors to an 84-81 victory.

Golden State recorded the lowest-scoring fourth quarter in league history and tied the lowest-scoring period, set by the Dallas Mavericks against the Los Angeles Lakers on April 6, 1997.

"We played well for three quarters and then we just ran out of gas," Golden State coach Eric Musselman said. "We were just too tired to run open offense late in the game. We just could not hit shots."

Playing for just the second time in five days, the Warriors made 1-of-13 shots, missed all three of their free throws and committed nine turnovers in the fourth quarter as Toronto rallied from a 16-point deficit.

"I don't think we tired, we just weren't executing the plays right," Golden State guard Jason Richardson said. "Two points, that's just crazy. It's uncalled for, in 12 minutes of an NBA game you only score two points?"

The Raptors scored 18 points on 9-of-20 shooting in the period as the teams combined for the lowest scoring fourth quarter in NBA history, eclipsing the previous record of 21, done three times.

Golden State's only basket in the fourth was a layup by Erick Dampier with 9:43 remaining. The Warriors did not score again until Clifford Robinson made a turnaround jumper 40 seconds into the extra period.

Calbert Cheaney followed with a layup for a 79-75 edge, but Golden State did not make another basket and sank just 2-of-4 free throws in the final 3 1/2 minutes.

Jalen Rose hit a pair of baskets and Donyell Marshall buried a jumper before Peterson -- who had just one basket in regulation -- sealed it with his shot from the left corner.

"I went baseline and I saw the ball coming to me," Peterson said. "In my mind-set on my last shot, I had missed the shot in the corner, as I did not get my feet set."

Robinson's three-point attempt at the buzzer did not even hit the rim, typifying the collapse for the Warriors, who made just three of their final 19 shots.

Vince Carter scored 22 points and Rose finished with 19 for the Raptors, who have won three of their last four games after losing seven of eight.

Marshall collected 12 points and 13 rebounds to fill the void left by rookie center Chris Bosh, who remained sidelined due to a sprained left ankle.

Richardson had 22 points and 13 rebounds but scored just one point after the third quarter as the Warriors lost for the third time in four games following a three-game winning streak.

Toronto scored the final 14 points of regulation, forging a 75-75 tie on a 16-foot jumper by Rose with 2:11 remaining.

Neither team scored in the final two minutes as the Raptors missed their final four shots and the Warriors committed turnovers on their last three possessions.

"The fourth quarter was a big mental boost for us," Peterson said. "We played defense and that shows the great character of this team."
