PHILADELPHIA (CP) — Kyle Lowry slept in his own bed, left about 50 tickets for family and friends, then gave his hometown crowd a reason to cheer.

Lowry had 18 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds for his fourth career triple-double, and DeMar DeRozan scored 34 points to help the Toronto Raptors beat the Philadelphia 76ers 104-95 on Friday night.

“As long as it’s with a win, I’m happy to have it,” Lowry said. “I’ll take the thanks from the team and ...

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).

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

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 ...

Preview | Game Notes

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.

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 ...
