TORONTO (AP) -- Kyle Lowry scored 19 points, Terrence Ross had 17 and the Toronto Raptors erased an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat Orlando 104-100 on Tuesday night, their ninth consecutive victory over the Magic.

DeMar DeRozan had 16 points and Lou Williams scored eight of his 14 in the fourth as the Eastern Conference leaders won their fifth straight game overall and improved to 7-1.

Ross grabbed the rebound on a potential tying jump shot by Tobias Harris with 2 seconds left. Toronto has won its first five home games for the first time since 2003-04.

Evan Fournier scored 24 and Harris had 23 points and 13 rebounds for Orlando, which lost its second straight. The Magic haven't beaten Toronto since March 26, 2012, and have lost 10 of the past 14 meetings.

Channing Frye scored 19 points and Nikola Vucevic had 18 for the Magic.

Amir Johnson and Patrick Patterson each had 12 points for Toronto. James Johnson led the Raptors with 10 rebounds.

With all five starters on the bench, Toronto opened the fourth on an 11-0 run, capped by back-to-back 3-pointers from Williams and Patterson, to tie it at 83 with 9:49 remaining.

Another 3 by Patterson at the 6:36 mark gave the Raptors their first lead since the opening quarter at 90-88, but Vucevic promptly tied it with a hook shot.

Frye put Orlando in front, 95-92, with his fifth 3 of the game at 4:27, but Ross answered with a tying 3 a minute later, his fourth of the night.

The Magic led 98-97 when Frye missed a 3 at 1:43. DeRozan was fouled at the other end and made both to put the Raptors in front. After a missed 3 by Fournier, Lowry added two more free throws to put Toronto up 101-98 with 1:05 left.

Harris brought the Magic within one with a layup, but Patterson made one of two at the line and Ross finished it with two more free throws after he was fouled grabbing the rebound on Harris' late miss.

Frye made his first four shots, three of them 3-pointers, then added another 3 on Orlando's final possession of the first quarter as the Magic led 32-24 after one.

Harris and Luke Ridnour each scored six points in the second, giving the Magic a 60-51 lead at halftime.

Harris had nine points in the third and Vucevic added eight as Orlando took an 83-72 lead into the fourth.
