A blowout loss to the Toronto Raptors left the Dallas Mavericks in a dark mood.

Chris Bosh had 23 points and 13 rebounds, Andrea Bargnani scored 22, and the Raptors used a big second quarter to beat the Mavericks, 110-88, yesterday in Toronto.

“There was no smiling and joking in this locker room after that game,’’ Mavericks guard Jason Terry said. “That was embarrassing.’’

Jose Calderon had 15 points and Jarrett Jack scored 11 for the Raptors, who took the lead early in the second and cruised, leading by as many as 26.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 19 points and Terry had 18 for the Mavericks, who have lost three of four.

It was Dallas’s worst loss since a 131-96 defeat at the Lakers Jan. 3. There’s little time to fix the problems; the Mavericks face the Celtics tonight.

Nuggets 119, Jazz 112 - Carmelo Anthony scored 37 points and Chauncey Billups added 29, leading host Denver to its third straight win while snapping Utah’s four-game win streak. Deron Williams led the Jazz with 23 points.
