DALLAS - They may have let one slip away against the Charlotte Bobcats, but the Raptors got back even with a big overtime win against the Dallas Mavericks.

Overcoming a career-best-tying game in the long-distance shooting department from a former teammate and a horrendous first quarter, the Raptors posted a 109-108 win, their first victory over the Mavs at the American Airlines Arena since 2010.

It ended with Amir Johnson, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry on the floor in a heap chasing down a Monta Ellis miss as the buzzer sounded.

Kyle Lowry’s 20 points led the scoring way, but you could pick a Raptor and find some credit to hand out.

It was that kind of game.

Individually, the three-point battle belonged to Jose Calderon but in the battle of Toronto and Dallas, it was the Raptors who came out on top draining 11-of-21 to the Mavs’ 10-of-21.
