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.

“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.

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 ...

Lowry will look to help the Raptors extend their home winning streak to seven games when they host the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

Playing his best basketball of the season of late, Lowry is averaging 18.6 points and 8.1 assists since Dec. 28, helping Toronto (20-18) go 8-3 in that span and move four games ahead of second-place Brooklyn in the ...
