Prather helped pick up the slack with his improbable performance.
Donovan called on the 6-foot-6, 212-pounder when he went to a smaller lineup. He played the power forward spot, matched against the 6-8, 237-pound Scott.
"The biggest thing with Casey, as long as he's not turning the ball over, he's going to play more," Donovan said. "He played within himself aggressively instead of getting out of himself. That was the encouraging thing today."
Prather said he had been frustrated over his lack of minutes this season but is excited about the possibility of making up for lost time.
"Coach Donovan told me to stay the course and my time would come," Prather said. "I guess this was a good time for it to come."
