DALLAS (AP) - Kyle Lowry scored 27 points, and the Toronto Raptors spoiled the home opener in Dallas, beating the Mavericks 102-91 on Tuesday night for the first 4-0 start in franchise history.

The Raptors took the lead for good on a 12-0 run that started in the middle of the fourth quarter. Jonas Valanciunas had six of his 16 points during the decisive stretch.

The Mavericks went almost 4 minutes without a basket after Dirk Nowitzki hit a 3-pointer for an 86-82 lead. Nowitzki finished with 18 points.

DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points, and Luis Scola had 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Raptors, who had opened with three straight wins two other times in their first 20 seasons.
