DALLAS — Joel Embiid scored 36 points and the Philadelphia 76ers wrapped up a long stretch of mostly road games with a 113-95 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night. Embiid made all six of his free throws in the first four-plus minutes and was 14 of 15 from the line as the 76ers finished 8-4 while playing 10 of 12 games on the road going into their final regular-season meeting with Brooklyn. Philadelphia took a half-game lead atop the Eastern Conference over the Nets, whose game at Minnesota was called off because of the shooting death of a Black man by police in the Minneapolis area. Luka Doncic scored 32 points but the young Dallas star didn't have enough help with European sidekick Kristaps Porzingis sitting out the second night of a back-to-back four days after playing in one for the first time in two months. The Dallas debut of JJ Redick wasn't much of a boost either. The veteran shooting guard had been recovering from a right heel injury since being acquired from New Orleans at the trade deadline more than two weeks ago in hopes of boosting the Mavericks at the 3-point line. Playing against one of his former teams and his coach from four seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers in Doc Rivers, Redick entered late in the first quarter and missed two shots from inside the arc before connecting on his first attempt from 3. The 36-year-old in his 15th season scored four points, going 1 of 7 from the field and 1 of 3 from deep. Philadelphia's Furkan Korkmaz was 4 of 7 from 3-point range and matched his season high with 20 points. Tobias Harris scored 10 and Ben Simmons had eight points, six rebounds and seven assists. Embiid scored eight points, including a three-point play right after a dunk by Simmons, during a 10-1 run that gave Philadelphia a 60-45 lead late in the first half. Embiid, who didn't play in the fourth quarter, was 10 of 17 from the field. The Mavericks used most of their big men trying to defend Embiid but had no answer. Maxi Kleber picked up two fouls in the first two minutes and combined with Boban Marjanovich and Willie Cauley-Stein for eight fouls in the first half, when Embiid scored 23 points. With the Sixers leading by 10 early in the third quarter, Embiid capped nine straight Philadelphia points with a 3 above the key before Seth Curry hit another from deep for a 72-55 lead in Curry's first game in Dallas since his second Dallas stint ended in an off-season trade. Curry finished with eight points. TIP-INS 76ers: Dwight Howard drew his NBA-leading 14th technical foul late in the third quarter. Two more in the regular season would result in a one-game suspension. Doncic started the day alone in second with 12. ... Danny Green, long a target of the Mavericks to help their 3-point shooting, made a pair 34 seconds apart for the first 20-point lead late in the third quarter. Those were all six of his points. Mavericks: Cauley-Stein played for the first time in his second game since being cleared after missing 12 games because of COVID-19 protocols. ... Dallas has lost consecutive games for just the second time since a season-worst six-game losing streak. UP NEXT 76ers: The start of a four-game homestand Wednesday is the deciding game of the three-game series with the Nets. It could play a role in the battle for the top seed in the East. The clubs split the first two meetings, each winning at home. Mavericks: A visit to Memphis on Wednesday is the only road game in a stretch of nine games for Dallas. A five-game homestand follows. The Mavericks won the first meeting in February, leading from start to finish. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/hub/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Schuyler Dixon, The Associated Press

RALEIGH, N.C. — Adam Erne and Filip Zadina scored two quick third-period goals while Jonathan Bernier finished with 37 saves to help the Detroit Red Wings beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 on Monday night. Sam Gagner added a clinching empty-net score late for the Red Wings, who continue to frustrate the Hurricanes. Carolina came in tied for the Central Division lead yet have lost four of seven against the division's last-place team. Detroit also spoiled a milestone night for Carolina captain Jordan Staal, who was honoured before the puck dropped for playing his 1,000th regular-season NHL game. Erne scored the game's first goal by scoring off a behind-the-net feed from Michael Rasmussen less than a minute into the third. That was the start of a game-turning sequence that saw the Hurricanes take two quick penalties to give the Red Wings a chance to strike again. The Hurricanes unsuccessfully challenged the goal seeking a missed offside call on Erne. That led to an delay of game penalty, followed by another when Brady Skjei's clear attempt sailed over the glass — potentially glancing off the stick of Detroit's Evgeny Svechnikov — to give Detroit a two-man advantage. The Hurricanes survived the 5-on-3, but Rasmussen slipped the puck to Zadina on the right side to beat James Reimer for the 2-0 lead at 2:34 of the third. That lead held up, with Nino Niederreiter getting Carolina on the board to make it 2-1 at 13:54 of the third. But the Hurricanes couldn't beat Bernier again, then Gagner finished it off with his empty-net score in the final minute to seal it. Reimer finished with 27 saves for the Hurricanes. STAAL HONORED In a bit of perfect timing, Jordan Staal's brother, Marc, was on the opposite bench for his milestone night that began with a pregame ceremony. The Hurricanes took the ice all wearing Staal’s No. 11 jersey before the ceremony that included taped video messages from former teammates such as Sidney Crosby, Cam Ward, Justin Williams and brothers Jared, Eric and Marc Staal. DEADLINE DAY The NHL's trade deadline passed a few hours before the puck dropped in this one, with both teams completing deals Monday. The Hurricanes traded defenceman Haydn Fleury to the Anaheim Ducks for defenceman Jani Hakanpaa and a sixth-round draft pick in 2022. That gave Carolina a physical boost to the blue line with the 6-foot-5, 218-pound Hakanpaa. As for the Red Wings, they dealt forward Anthony Mantha to Washington for wingers Richard Panik and Jakub Vrana as well a first-round draft pick this year and a second-rounder next year. Detroit has completed four trades since Friday. UP NEXT Detroit: The Red Wings return home Thursday for the first of two straight games against Chicago. Carolina: The Hurricanes open a two-game home set with Nashville on Thursday, followed by the second game Saturday to close an eight-game homestead. ___ Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at https://twitter.com/aaronbeardap ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Aaron Beard, The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Tyler Glasnow struck out a career-high 14 in 7 2/3 innings and Willy Adames homered in the seventh to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the sputtering Texas Rangers 1-0 on Monday night. Glasnow (1-0) allowed two hits and got his first win of the season after pitching well but not being involved in decisions in two previous starts. He allowed Eli White's single up the middle off the glove of diving second baseman Brandon Lowe with one out in the fifth and Jose Trevino's leadoff single in the eighth. Adames homered off Taylor Hearn (0-1) with two outs in the seventh, just the third hit yielded by Texas pitchers. Rangers starter Dane Dunning limited the Rays to a pair of doubles in the first two innings before being replaced by Hearn at the start of the fifth. Glasnow improved to 6-0 over his last 11 regular season games, and the AL champions have gone 10-1 in the those games. The 6-foot-8 right-hander allowed one hit in six innings on opening day, exiting a scoreless tie before the Rays went on to win 1-0 at Miami. He yielded one run and four hits over six innings at Boston on April 6, departing with a 3-1 lead the Rays were unable to hold before losing in extra innings. Texas was shut out for the third time in four games. The Rangers’ offensive struggles carried over from a six-game homestand in which they scored just 15 runs and batted .193 as a team. They were no-hit by San Diego’s Joe Musgrove last Friday and shut out two of the previous three games entering Monday night. Glasnow didn’t make it any easier for them. The Rays ace struck out the side in the first, third and sixth innings. The closest he came to giving up a hit before White singled was when White hit a sinking liner that centre fielder Brett Phillips went to the ground to catch with two outs in the second. Lefty Cody Reed relieved with two outs, and Diego Castillo escaped a ninth-inning jam to finish a combined three-hitter and get his third save. CHAMPIONSHIP JEWELRY The Rays received their AL championship rings before batting practice. Principal owner Stuart Sternberg and general manager Erik Neander spoke to the team before players were shown a short video featuring highlights from the 2020 pandemic-shortened season. “They’re beautiful. ... I think all of us were blown away by them,” centre fielder Kevin Kiermaier said. “About as sexy as a ring could get without being a World Series champion.” TRAINER’S ROOM Rangers: OF David Dahl (calf tightness) was back in the lineup after missing one game. ... RHP reliever Jonathan Hernandez had ligament reconstruction surgery, performed by team physician Dr. Keith Meister. ... 3B Brock Holt resumed baseball activity, six days after straining his right hamstring. The Rangers are optimistic he will be ready when eligible to come off the injured list Saturday. ... OF/DH Khris Davis (left quad strain) is still about two weeks before being a full-go medically and able to compete in games to prepare for his Rangers debut. ... LF Ronald Guzman left the game in the first inning after injuring his right knee while chasing a pop fly caught by SS Isiah Kiner-Falefa. Rays: Manager Kevin Cash said RHP Chris Archer, placed on the 10-day injured list after experiencing right lateral forearm tightness in a start last Saturday, may begin playing catch by the end of the week. UP NEXT The four-game series continues Tuesday with the Rangers starting right-hander Kyle Gibson (1-0, 7.11) and the Rays countering with lefty Ryan Yarbrough (0-1, 5.06). ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Fred Goodall, The Associated Press
