DeMar DeRozan had a career-high 40 points as the Toronto Raptors rallied to beat the Dallas Mavericks 93-85 on Wednesday night.
    
DeRozan finished 15-of-22 from the field, nine-of-12 from the free-throw line and hit the only three-pointer he tried as Toronto (21-20) earned its first win in three games. He put an exclamation point on his outstanding performance by recording the steal and going the length of the court to score and put the Raptors up 92-85 with 1:48 remaining.
    
Grievis Vazquez scored 17 points and Jonas Valanciunas added 12 as Toronto earned its third straight win over the Mavericks.
    
Monta Ellis had 21 points for Dallas (25-19) while former Raptors Jose Calderon and Vince Carter had 13 and eight points, respectively. Brandan Wright also had 13 points.
    
Dallas suffered the loss minus all-star Dirk Nowitzki (rest). The 34-year-old was inactive despite scoring 17 points in the Mavs' 102-97 road win over Cleveland on Monday night.
    
Carter spent his first six-plus NBA seasons with the Raptors, winning the '98-'99 top rookie award and slam dunk contest (2000) while with the club. But the player dubbed 'Air Canada' for his high-flying performances while in Toronto was routinely booed every time he touched the ball.
