Recap

Andrea Bargnani scored 25 points and Jose Calderon added 20 points and a season-high 17 assists as the Toronto Raptors rallied from an early 15-point deficit for a 120-105 road victory over the stumbling Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Raptors entered as the worst 3-point shooting team in the NBA but made 9-of-18 against the worst team in the league at defending the arc.

DeMar DeRozan fell hard and banged his head on the court in the fourth quarter, then returned quickly to score nine straight points for the Raptors. He helped turn a six-point lead entering the period into a 105-90 bulge with eight minutes to go.

The Raptors trailed, 36-21, late in the first quarter but exploded for a season-high 40 points in the second period and outscored the Cavaliers, 94-67, over the last 36 minutes. Leandro Barbosa scored 22 points and fellow reserve Julian Wright added 15 for the Raptors, who snapped a three-game losing streak.
 
Antawn Jamison scored 32 points for Cleveland but had little help from his teammates. The Cavaliers have lost eight straight games and 18 of 19 as they depart on a difficult five-game West Coast swing.
