Ross was 3 for 6 on 3s and 10 for 16 overall.

Toronto kept pace despite giving up 16 offensive rebounds, being outscored 52-36 in the paint and allowing San Antonio to score a season-high 24 second-chance points. The Raptors also had 13 turnovers.

"That was the kicker," Casey said. "That was difference in the game, our turnovers and the defensive glass. We didn't do a good job of turning and finding the body and that's mental fatigue. We had been doing a good job of keeping people off the glass and attacking the basket, but you're not talking about chopped liver in San Antonio. They are going to be in the money at the end of the season."

The bench again provided San Antonio a lift, with Ginobili and Patty Mills each hitting a 3 as the reserves outscored their peers 18-2 in the second quarter. Ginobili's 3 gave the Spurs their largest lead at 52-43 with 2:20 remaining in the half.

Still, Toronto closed a three-game road trip with victories over Oklahoma City and the Dallas Mavericks.

"We're happy with it, we wanted to be greedy and get 3-0, but 2-1 against these three teams is pretty good, we'll take it," Lowry said.

NOTES: DeRozan was assessed a technical foul with 4:33 remaining in the first quarter for continuing to argue a continuation call against him after official Lauren Holtkamp warned him, "That's enough." . The Spurs recalled G Nando De Colo and F Malcolm Thomas from their developmental team in Austin. De Colo had 31 points, nine assists, six rebounds and four steals in a 131-94 victory over the Delaware 87ers on Saturday. . Former Spurs C David Robinson received a loud ovation, including applause from officials Holtkamp, Danny Crawford and Tony Brown, when he appeared on the big screen at midcourt to acknowledge his military service. . Steve Novak's streak of turnover-free play ended at 202 minutes after entering with 3 minutes left in the game. It was the longest active streak in the league.
