EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — While a sprained left ankle spoiled Vince Carter's return to New Jersey, it did nothing to slow down Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic.

Carter scored 16 points before leaving the game against his former teammates in the second quarter, but Howard more than made up for his absence with 20 points, 22 rebounds and four blocks in a 95-85 victory Friday night.

Carter, who said he was feeling better after the game and hoped to be back Sunday, spent the second half in the trainers' room and had his ankle wrapped. X-rays were negative.
