DALLAS -- Believe it or not, Dirk Nowitzki wasn't the most productive Euro on the floor in the first half.

That would be Toronto's sweet-shooting 7-footer, Andrea Bargnani, who lit up the Mavs for 18 points on 7-of-8 shooting. He had 13 points just in the second quarter. But this was still by far the Mavs' stingiest defensive performance in a first half this season.

Dirk arguably wasn't even the Mavs' most productive Euro. Backup big man Ian Mahinmi blew up for 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting and four rebounds in 12 minutes.

Nowitzki has 12 points, including a couple of jumpers during a 6-0 run after the Raptors pulled even with a 12-0 tear, fueled by six Bargnani points and highlighted by a high-rising tomahawk slam by DeMar DeRozan.
