Edwards wins at Bristol

BRISTOL, Tenn.—Carl Edwards took his first celebratory back flip of the season and easily stuck the landing.

“I haven’t done one for a while.”

He earned that acrobatic moment because his No. 19 Toyota gripped Bristol Motor Speedway much better than his Joe Gibbs Racing teammates yesterday.

Warriors set mark

Down to their final chance at the record, the Warriors became the first team in the NBA to win 73 games in the regular season, beating the Memphis Grizzlies 125-104 last night.

“We had other guys step up tonight,” said manager Dusty Baker.
