The Delaware 87ers are taking a look at Baron Davis. The former NBA all-star point guard signed and practiced with the 76ers' NBA Development League affiliate on Wednesday. Davis, 36, is expected to play for the Sevens on Friday in a home game against Iowa. Davis has not played since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, and patellar tendon in his right knee as a New York Knick in 2012. The two-time NBA all-star, who signed with the D-League in January, has been working on his fitness in an attempt to make a comeback.

The New Orleans Hornets aren't used to playing without Baron Davis, and it showed. Paul Pierce scored 30 points and Antoine Walker added 26 as Boston beat the visiting Hornets yesterday, 95-86. The Hornets were without Davis for the first time in four seasons. Davis sat out because of back pain, ending his consecutive-games streak at 248. Without him, New Orleans committed 24 turnovers and Boston had 10 steals. "Normally they are a low-turnover team, but with Baron Davis out we felt like we could put more pressure on them," Pierce said.

BARON DAVIS has torn the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his right knee, a potentially career-threatening injury for the Knicks' 33-year-old point guard. The Knicks said Davis will have surgery this week and is expected to be out a year after an MRI on Monday also revealed a partial tear of the patella tendon. Davis was hurt Sunday in the Knicks' 89-87 victory over Miami, crumbling to the court when his knee gave out as he dribbled upcourt on a fast break in the third quarter.

Even shorthanded, the Utah Jazz outran the Golden State Warriors.

The Jazz overcame the loss of rookie guard Dee Brown to a neck injury in the first quarter and had to rally to force the overtime after Golden State went on a 12-1 run late in the fourth quarter.

Don Nelson made a triumphant return to Dallas - barely, and in one of the wild finishes that remind him how stressful coaching can be. Baron Davis scored 26 points and Jason Richardson added 22, just enough for the Golden State Warriors to hold off the Mavericks last night, 107-104, in their new coach's return to his old stomping grounds. "I never expected this win," said Nelson, who came out of retirement late this summer to take over the Warriors. "I didn't think we'd be able to beat a good team at this point of the season, but I was wrong.

The Sixers (26-33) won't get much of a defensive break tonight when they visit the potent Phoenix Suns. Golden State (35-22) entered the game leading the NBA in points scored (110 per game)
