The Dallas Mavericks hold a dubious place in the Raptors' record books. The two biggest collapses in Toronto history have come in games against the Mavericks. Dallas rallied from 24 points down twice - trailing by that many in the second quarter of a game in Dallas last November and by 24 in the third quarter of a game in Dallas in 2006. The Raptors lost the first game by six points in regulation and the second by two in overtime.

The odd start time to last night's game in Dallas can be attributed to the NHL. The Dallas Stars played a game at the American Airlines Center yesterday afternoon - losing 4-1 to the Pittsburgh Penguins - which pushed back the Raptors-Mavericks game from the usual 7: 30 p.m. local start by half an hour. That marked the second time a Raptors-Mavericks game has been part of an arena doubleheader here. They played an afternoon game on Feb. 25, 2006 prior to an arena football game that night.
