Story | Dec 20, 2013 | 4:03 AMThe Dallas Mavericks have a chance to sweep a three-game homestand and reach a new high-water mark for the season when they host the Toronto Raptors on Friday. Dirk Nowitzki returned after missing one game with a stomach bug and led Dallas to a 105-91 win over short-handed Memphis on Wednesday, moving the Mavericks a season-high five games above .500. The Mavericks are 11-2 at home, where they've won 14 of 17 all-time meetings with Toronto. Even though it's only December, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle places great importance on every game as it pertains to his team's playoff hopes this spring. "We're in a situation where we're one of six or seven teams fighting for two or three playoff spots," Carlisle told reporters. "That's what it's going to come down to. Concentration and focus and attention to detail are going to carry the day as to who gets in and who has a chance to advance." The Raptors could find themselves in the same situation - despite being five games below .500, they're in eighth place in the Eastern Conference with six teams within 3 1/2 games of them.
