TORONTO (CP) — Terrence Ross seemed a bit taken aback by all the fuss.

Although he’d just matched a Toronto Raptors record with 51 points, Ross wasn’t sure why someone threw him a game ball. With the media crowding around his locker, he noted that New York’s Carmelo Anthony poured in 62 on Friday night and Oklahoma’s Kevin Durant had 54 earlier this month.

The Toronto Raptors (21-20) needed a huge performance from DeMar DeRozan to rescue them from a huge deficit in their last game.

DeRozan might be poised for another career night against the Philadelphia 76ers (14-28) given what he’s done so far in the season series.

He’ll try to help Toronto win a third straight meeting with the 76ers on Friday night when the Raptors visit Philadelphia (7 PM ET, TSN2, TSN 1050).

TORONTO (CP) — With teammate Kyle Lowry ailing, DeMar DeRozan put the Toronto Raptors on his shoulders Wednesday night.

DeRozan had a career-high 40 points to rally the Raptors to a 93-85 home win over the Dallas Mavericks, their first victory in three games. And with fellow guard Lowry struggling with the stomach flu _ he went 0-for-10 from the field, including 0-for-6 from beyond the arc — it was DeRozan who led Toronto to its third straight decision over the Mavs.

“Once I saw Kyle with ...

The Dallas Mavericks have one of the best assist-to-turnover ratios in the NBA thanks in large part to the steady play of Jose Calderon.

Calderon was greeted warmly in his first return to Toronto, but the receptions have been different for Vince Carter when he’s gone back north.

Carter has also been efficient with the basketball and Wednesday night’s contest figures to be one of his final games in Toronto as the Mavericks continue a three-game trip.

Box Score | Photos | Video Highlights & Post-Game Reaction

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (CP) — Al Jefferson sat at his locker pondering how the Charlotte Bobcats nearly surrendered a 30-point lead they held late in the third quarter.

“Of course we had to make it a game,” Jefferson said with a grin. “We couldn’t enjoy an easy win, right?”

It never seems that easy for the Bobcats.

Despite the big lead, Jefferson and Bobcats didn’t breathe a sigh of relief until Ramon Sessions knocked down two free throws with 1.6 seconds left to secure a ...
