DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - It took nearly 10 hours to complete the Daytona 500 on Sunday and for Dale Earnhardt Jr. to complete his 10-year bid to return to Daytona's Victory Lane. Earnhardt held off Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski on a restart with two laps left to win NASCAR's most prestigious race, and the Sprint Cup Series' season opener, for the second time. "I cannot believe this," Earnhardt screamed over his car radio after crossing the finish line at 11:25 p.m. EST after a 61/2-hour rain delay at Daytona International Speedway.

NASHVILLE  - Corey Perry days earlier said one of the factors bedeviling the Ducks during their 10-game rut was that the puck wasn't bouncing the team's way. That changed Saturday night, as two Ducks' passes were deflected off Nashville players into the goal and a long-distance shot weaved almost magically to the net through skaters' traffic in Anaheim's 5-2 victory over the Predators at Bridgestone Arena. "You work hard, you create your own bounces," Perry said. "A garbage goal, as they say, takes the monkey off your back.

Tony Schumacher not only is the most successful top-fuel drag racer in NHRA history, he's also a huge hockey fan. So he was thrilled to drop the ceremonial opening puck at the Kings' game Thursday night at Staples Center, where they snapped a four-game losing streak. Now Schumacher hopes to end a drought of his own. After winning a remarkable six consecutive top-fuel championships from 2004 through 2009, giving him a record seven overall, Schumacher hasn't won a title since then.

Timberwolves 109 - Lakers 99 (end of regulation) The Lakers gave a strong effort against the Timberwolves, holding Minnesota to just 41 points in the second half, but it wasn't enough for a win. Minnesota ended a two-game losing streak with their wire-to-wire, 109-99 win over the Lakers despite playing without starting center Nikola Pekovic. The Lakers drop their seventh straight game, despite getting Steve Nash and Steve Blake back from injury. Nash played just under 25 minutes, scoring seven points with nine assists.  Blake, who suffered a punctured ear drum in the game, but kept playing, finished with six assists and three steals without scoring.

John Wall scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half and the Washington Wizards took advantage of a rare off game from hometown star Kevin Durant in a 96-81 victory over the Thunder on Saturday night that stopped Oklahoma City's 10-game winning streak. Two days after being selected to the All-Star game for the first time, Wall also had 15 assists and six steals and went seven for 11 from the field after halftime, more than making up for an 0-for-7 first half. Durant had 26 points on eight-for-21 shooting, including 0 for 6 from three-point range, along with five turnovers.

The Clippers are playing perhaps their best basketball of the season, having won 10 of their last 12 games, but they have not played well in Oakland against the Golden State Warriors. The Clippers have lost their last four games to the Warriors at Oracle Arena and 14 of their last 16 there. The Clippers hope to change that when they face the Warriors tonight in Oakland. After a 10-game winning streak, the Warriors have struggled lately, losing six of their last nine games.

AT OREGON When: 6. Where: Knight Arena, Eugene. On the air: TV: ESPN2; Radio: 570. Records: UCLA 16-4, 5-2 in Pac-12 play; Oregon 14-5, 2-5. Update: Is Oregon fixed or is Washington State that bad? The Ducks were undefeated and ranked 10th in the nation one game into Pac-12 Conference play. Then came a five-game losing streak that ended Sunday with a 71-44 victory over Washington State. Why the Ducks suddenly struggled is unclear. They average 85.9 points per game, fourth in the nation.

CHICAGO - The Ducks failed to protect numerous streaks Friday, all because the Chicago Blackhawks were hovering over something more treasured. In beating the Ducks 4-2 before a sellout United Center crowd, the Blackhawks put the greatest challengers to their Stanley Cup defense in their place. Gone is Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller's 14-game winning streak, as is the Ducks' run of eight consecutive wins. And they are now 18-2 since their last visit to Chicago on Dec. 6. "We knew how big it was," Chicago forward Marian Hossa said after scoring the game's opening goal short-handed, and its last on an empty net that stopped a furious Ducks' rally of two goals late in the third period.
