The weekend was kind to the Toronto Raptors, and their hard work has seemingly started to pay dividends. On Friday night they hosted the Dallas Mavericks and came away with a dominate 95-74 win. They followed that up with another deserving win, with a renewed focus on the defensive end of the floor, getting past the Houston Rockets, 103-96 to provide their 2nd win in a row and their first set of back to back wins since last season (April 2012).
Jose Calderon posted his 2nd career triple-double (both this season). He posted 18 points, 14 assists, and 10 rebounds.
Alan Anderson was also huge off the bench for the Raptors, scoring 24 points in 25 minutes of playing time.
