EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- All-Star Vince Carter squares off against his former team for the first time when the New Jersey Nets host the slumping Toronto Raptors at Continental Airlines Arena on Tuesday.

Carter, which scored 11 points for the Eastern Conference on Sunday, was traded to New Jersey on December 17, 2004 for Alonzo Mourning, Aaron Williams and Eric Williams.

After averaging 16 points in 20 games with the Raptors, Carter is scoring 26 points per game while hitting 45 percent of his shots for the Nets. Mourning never reported to Toronto and Eric Williams and Aaron Williams are averaging a combined five points per game for the Raptors.

Led by Carter's 21 points, New Jersey posted a 96-85 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday, improving to 6-4 in its last 10 games. Carter has led the team in scoring in 12 of the last 15 games.

Jason Kidd posted his fifth triple-double of the season - 64th of his career - with 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists and rookie Nenad Krstic posted a season-high 18 points and eight rebounds.

The Raptors have lost five of their last six games, including a 121-115 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday. Chris Bosh scored 28 points, Jalen Rose added 25 and Rafer Alston chipped in 21 for Toronto in the loss.

Toronto and New Jersey have split a pair of meetings this season, including a 110-99 Raptors' victory in Toronto on December 19. Morris Peterson scored a season-high 20 points to pace seven Raptors in double figures.
