Vince Carter Tears Up at Video Tribute

It was Vince Carter tribute night at the ACC on Wednesday, but that didn't stop the Raptors from pulling out an impressive 96-92 win over the Memphis Grizzlies and improving to 9-2 on the season and 7-1 at home.

The Toronto Raptors honoured VC during a first quarter timeout where a sold out Air Canada Centre stood up on their feet to honour VC, who normally receives a reign of boos and "VC Sucks" chants each time he returns to Toronto. It was a tasteful video tribute which brought out a few tears from the former Raptor. Carter finished with 7 pts on the night.
