GAME RECAP

Damon Stoudamire scored 17 of his 21 points in the second half and the Toronto Raptors used a season-high 40-point third quarter to rally for a 101-93 victory over the Dallas Mavericks, who have lost 20 straight road games.

Stoudamire also contributed eight assists and seven rebounds. Oliver Miller scored 17 points against his previous team and Marcus Camby grabbed 16 rebounds for Toronto, which won for the fourth time in its last five home games.

"Last year he (Mavericks general manager Don Nelson) gave me a gift (by waiving me)," Miller said. "This year I gave him a gift, a size 15 up his butt. I was loving it watching him cry all night. 'He's pushing my big man, he's pushing my big man.' Congratulations to Don Nelson on the loss."

Michael Finley had 19 points and six assists and Shawn Bradley 12 boards for Dallas, which dropped its 20th consecutive road game. The Mavericks have not won on the road since November 1st at Seattle. The road losing streak is the third-longest in franchise history, surpassed only by the 29 straight road setbacks during the 1992-93 season and 26 in a row during the 1991-92 campaign.

Toronto outrebounded Dallas 51-42, and the Mavericks shot just 18 percent (3-for-17) from three-point range. Overall, Dallas shot 42 percent (37-for-88) from the field, while Toronto shot 43 percent (38-for-89).

The Mavericks jumped out to a 27-13 lead at the end of the first quarter, with former Raptor Hubert Davis scoring eight points. Toronto shot an anemic 19 percent (5-for-26) from the field during the quarter while Dallas connected on 11-of-23 shots.

"We were up 16 in the first quarter and I thought maybe we would play a real good game, but we looked in the second half like they did in the first half," said Nelson, who also doubles as coach. "I have no problem with the way our team is playing, we just aren't winning. In the third quarter they found holes in our double-team and I waited too long to call the double-team off. In the second half, we were too predictable."

Dallas owned a 47-39 lead at the half and was ahead 51-44 at the 10:33 mark of the third quarter after a pair of free throws by Davis. But Toronto turned the game around with a 27-9 run, with Stoudamire contributing 11 points and Walt Williams eight of his 15.

Williams got the rally going with consecutive three-pointers and two free throws by Miller tied the score at 53-53 with 8:32 to go. Stoudamire gave Toronto a 58-57 lead 2:31 later when he draining a three-pointer. A jumper by Williams ended the surge at 2:48 of the third quarter, giving the Raptors their biggest lead of the second half, 71-60.

"We are still learning and when you get a lead against a young team, you have to get up 20-25 points and take the air out of them," said Dallas swingman Dennis Scott, who scored 13 points. "I told our guys not to let them get confidence. Toronto is a feisty team. They knocked down a couple of threes and were able to make some easy baskets. We played hard but we didn't play smart."

Dallas reduced the deficit to 96-90 with 2:43 remaining on a dunk by Finley, but that was as close the Mavericks would get.

"We played a good second half and it seems for how bad our year has been, theirs has been worse," Stoudamire said. "They had a 16-point lead and they should've buried us. Fortunately, we were able to make some shots in the second half. In the first half we couldn't hit any shots. We got the same looks in the second half, we just started making them."
