Yesterday I flipped on the Mavericks and they trailed the lowly Toronto Raptors -- playing without leading scorer Andrea Bargnani -- and they trailed 22-3.
I couldn't believe it. I was worried. I was...soothed when I realized it was the Raptors.
By the third quarter the Mavs led en route to another easy victory. From down 22-3, the Mavs won 114-96.
Shouldn't come as any surprise. As in the video, the Mavs always rally to beat the Raptors.

In fact, that's the fourth time in 10 years that Dallas has a victory over Toronto in which it trailed by 17 points or more.
And, yes, wonderful.
The Mavs have now won 16 of 17 entering tomorrow night's game in Philly. Win that one and there's no reason to believe they can't push the pace to 20 of 21.
