Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson, bottom, tries to drive to the net past Dallas Mavericks forward Elton Brand, top, Friday during first half in Toronto.
TORONTO — Linas Kleiza scored 12 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, rookie Terrence Ross had 18 points and the Toronto Raptors beat the Dallas Mavericks 95-74 on Friday night, snapping a six-game losing streak.
DeMar DeRozan and Jose Calderon had 14 points each for the Raptors, who had lost 14 of their previous 17 meetings with the Mavericks.
The Raptors had lost 12 of 13 and were again without Andrea Bargnani (right elbow) and Kyle Lowry (right shoulder). But thanks to some impressive long range shooting, that didn't matter.
Kleiza had five 3-pointers, four in the final quarter, as Toronto matched its season high with the 12 3s.
Shawn Marion had 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Mavericks, who lost their second straight and dropped below .500 at 11-12.
