Peterson got a technical for arguing a no-call late in the first half. About a minute later, Carter playfully slapped his ex-teammate in the face. An annoyed Peterson then slapped Carter.
Official Steve Javie didn't see the Carter slap, but he saw Peterson's and ejected him.
Carter, who is friends with Peterson, went to Javie to argue the call but to no avail.
Carter played for the Raptors from 1998-99 until being traded to the Nets in December 2004.
