(SportsNetwork.com) - The Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors are back in the great white north for a brief moment and will host the Dallas Mavericks Friday night from Air Canada Centre. The Raptors are 13-2 and have won six in a row, including Wednesdays 126-115 beatdown of the Hawks in Atlanta. DeMar DeRozan scored 27 points, Lou Williams added 22 and Greivis Vasquez scored 21 points for the Raptors, who shot 51.2 percent and scored 30 or more points in three of four quarters. The Raptors made 14 of their 29 3-pointers and the 126 points scored were a season high. We knew they (Hawks) played last night, said Raptors head coach Dwane Casey. We knew we were going to come out and put the pedal to the metal. It paid dividends for us. Kyle Lowry had 14 points and dished out 13 assists, and is posting an average of 17.8 points, 8.2 assists and 5.6 rebounds over the last five games. Torontos bench scored 52 points and has posted 50 or more in three of the last four games. It is 11-0 this season when leading after three quarters. The Raptors are a sizzling 9-1 at Air Canada Centre and have won four in a row there. The nine home wins are the most in the NBA. The Raptors are second in the NBA with 108.0 points per game and are posting 106.4 ppg at home. After hosting the Mavericks, Toronto will head west for three games against the Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz. Toronto will wear its retro purple uniforms Friday for the second time as part of its 20th Anniversary Nights. The Mavericks will play their next four games on the road against Toronto, Philadelphia, Chicago and Milwaukee, and are 4-3 outside of Big D. Dallas lost two in a row following a six-game winning streak, but rebounded with Wednesdays 109-102 overtime victory over the New York Knicks. Knicks star Carmelo Anthony did not play and Dallas took advantage. Future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki scored a season-best 30 points and former Knick Tyson Chandler was a monster with an NBA-high 25 rebounds (10 on offense) and 17 points. He was ready for this game. He had a major impact on it, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said of Chandler. Dallas was 7-3 last season when Nowitzki scored at least 30 points and leads the NBA with 109.3 ppg. The Mavs are second in the league with a 48.3 field goal percentage. The Mavs, who shot 40 percent from the floor, had a 56-53 rebounding advantage and posted 29 points off 22 New York turnovers. Dallas, which scored 50 points in the paint to New Yorks 24 points inside, used a 9-0 run and forced six Knicks turnovers to pull away in the extra session (14-7). Carlisle needs one win for 300 (299-193) with the Mavericks. Don Nelson and Dick Motta are the other Dallas coaches with 300 or more wins. Dallas lost both meetings with Toronto last season and is 14-6 in the past 20 games in this series. The Raptors are unbeaten in the last three encounters between the teams. The Mavs are winless in two straight and three of the past four trips to Canada. DeRozan averaged 27.5 points, 6.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds in two games against the Mavericks last season.

Canadas 5-1 loss to Finland in the semifinal ranks as the tournaments most-watched game with a record 2.7 million viewers, the largest ever for a World Juniors game played outside of North America, and winning Saturday as the most-watched program on Canadian television.BRISTOL, Tenn. - If two rain delays totalling more than five hours werent enough, the water-logged race at Bristol Motor Speedway had a battery fly out of a car and spread a toilet paper-looking substance all over the track. And that wasnt even the strangest occurrence Sunday. Moments before Carl Edwards closed in on what should have been the white flag lap, the caution lights were accidentally turned on from the flag stand. As NASCAR tried to figure out what was going on, the sky opened up and prevented the race from resuming. Edwards was awarded the win under caution — a victory he was headed to before the mishap — and celebrated his third career win at Bristol with his trademark backflip on the slick concrete. "Oh, man, I thought, This is stupid. I shouldnt do this ... Its awfully glossy. It might be slick," he said. "I didnt want to stick it perfectly and have my feet go that way and break my arm on the concrete. That would have been terrible. I was actually really nervous about that." NASCAR vice-president of competition Robin Pemberton said a person in the flag stand leaned on the manual override switch and that turned on the caution lights. Six seconds after the lights were turned on, the flag man waved the yellow flag. Pemberton said that the flag man can wave the caution flag without a call from series officials in the tower if they see a proper reason. "We were scanning cars and spotters, and theres some of us in the tower that only heard it after the teams were talking about it because we were looking at other things around the racetrack," Pemberton said. Said Edwards: "No harm, no foul, lets act like it just didnt happen." The victory makes Edwards the fourth winner in four races this season and, under NASCARs new rules, is supposed to get him into the 16-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. "Just to have a win this early, man, it is a huge relief," he said. Five other things from water-logged Bristol: BUMP-AND-RUN: With Chase berths conceivably on the line with a win, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was salivating at a shot at teammate Edwards when the final caution came out at Bristol. But he knew if the race went green again, his only chance would be the old Bristol bump-and-run, which hasnt been used in years. Its a risky move to do to a teammate, but owner Jack Roush said he expected nothing less from Stenhouse. "When it comes time to really charge for the checkered flag, there are no team orders, there aree no rules," Roush said.dddddddddddd "I expect them to race one another as they expect to be raced, not only with one another, but with everybody in the garage. I expect Ricky is as fierce a competitor as there is out there, and if his car has the speed in it and he can get to the car in front of him, particularly the short track, youd bump-and-run and take the prize if you could. Id be disappointed if he didnt have that in his mind." AWESOME ARIC: Aric Almirola finished a career-best third — and Richard Petty Motorsports teammate Marcos Ambrose was fifth as four Ford drivers placed in the top-five — but Ambrose felt he could have gotten more. He restarted second behind Carl Edwards with 70 laps to go and had one solid chance to take the lead. If hed gotten past Edwards, he just might have grabbed his first career victory. "These races are so hard to win, and it was a great day for us," he said. "Im not disappointed at all with third, but when you see it and you can taste it and its that close, you wonder what could have went different." SMOKE RISES: Tony Stewart salvaged what looked like it was going to be an awful weekend with a season-best fourth-place finish. It came after he qualified 37th, needed two Saturday practice sessions with crew chief Chad Johnston to make significant improvements to the car and needed the entire race to work his way into the top-10. "Its a step in the right direction for sure. This is a big one. If you come out of this place with a top-five youve had a good day," he said. DISSAPOINTED WITH THE FINISH: Kyle Larson flirted with the lead and was in position to race for the win until the race-changing caution with 77 laps remaining. He went to pit road third, took four tires and restarted ninth. So even though he finished a career-best 10th, the rookie wasnt thrilled. "Its crazy to think its kind of a disappointing finish for the way we ran for most of the race, but all in all it was a good race," Larson said. DALES BAD DAY: Dale Earnhardt Jr.s strong start to the season finally came to an end at Bristol, where he finished 24th after opening with a win and two second-places. Although his Chevrolet wasnt great all weekend, his trouble Sunday was compounded by two left-front tire issues. Once he was out of contention, he was basically just making laps for the bulk of the race. It cost Earnhardt the points lead, which went to Brad Keselowski. Earnhardt now trails Keselowski by 10 points. ' ' '
