DeRozan has 29, Raptors win 11th straight, beat Mavs 122-115

TORONTO (AP) The Toronto Raptors are on top of the Eastern Conference and learning how to deal with the view.

DeMar DeRozan made the game-winning basket in overtime and the Raptors rallied to match the longest winning streak in franchise history, topping the Dallas Mavericks 122-115 on Friday for their 11th consecutive win.

''We make it hard on ourselves,'' coach Dwane Casey said. ''Every team is coming in and giving their best shot. We're learning to be the hunted instead of the hunter.''

DeRozan scored 29 points and Jonas Valanciunas had 21 points and 12 rebounds as the Raptors (52-17) won for the 18th time in 19 games.

''It's cool but I think we're all looking at it like we've got a bigger goal in mind,'' DeRozan said. ''Every game is not going to be pretty but as long as we're figuring out how to win and doing it in the right way, that's all that matters to me.''

Kyle Lowry got the night off to rest as the Raptors played the second game of the back-to-back. Toronto won at Indiana on Thursday.

Delon Wright scored 15 points and Fred VanVleet had 14, helping Toronto improve to an NBA-best 29-5 at home.

Dallas had won three of four. Harrison Barnes scored 27 points for the Mavericks, Dennis Smith Jr. had 19 and J.J. Barea 18.

''A lot of positives, just not the W,'' Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said.

Up 84-78 to begin the fourth, Dallas stretched its lead to 101-93 on a jump shot by Barnes with 5:43 remaining, but four points from DeRozan cut it to 101-97 with 4:32 left.

Toronto kept coming, pulling within two on a pair of free throws by DeRozan and, after a Dallas turnover, tying it at 106 on DeRozan's jumper with 1:15 to go in regulation.

Each team turned the ball over before Barnes missed a jumper with 24 seconds left and VanVleet grabbed the rebound. After a timeout, DeRozan let the clock wind down before driving and kicking to Serge Ibaka, who missed a potential game-winning shot. DeRozan also missed before the buzzer, sending it to overtime.

Five of Dallas' 12 turnovers came in the fourth quarter.

''We turned the ball over a little bit too much there,'' Dirk Nowitzki said.

VanVleet and Dallas' Dwight Powell each made a 3 in overtime before DeRozan drove for the tiebreaking basket with 53 seconds left.

Valanciunas sealed it by making five of six at the free-throw line in the final 10 seconds.

''We had it going there on a lot of cylinders,'' Nowitzki said. ''Just couldn't close, couldn't finish, which is disappointing.''

TIP-INS
