LeBron James needs 18 points to become the 38th NBA player to score 20,000 in his career. If it happens Wednesday when the Miami Heat visit the Golden State Warriors, James (28 years, 17 days) will be more than a year younger than Kobe Bryant was when he got there at 29 years, 122 days. James would be the seventh-fastest to the 20,000 club, in his 726th regular-season game. Wilt Chamberlain needed 499 games, followed by Michael Jordan (620), Oscar Robertson (671), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (684)

Florida State must pay offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher $2.5 million if he is not hired to replace Bobby Bowden, 78, as head coach in three years. However, Fisher would have to pay an equal amount to leave before then. Florida State released Fisher's contract yesterday after the West Virginia native was mentioned in published reports as a potential candidate to take over for Rich Rodriguez as Mountaineers coach. Rodriguez left West Virginia to take over at Michigan. All-American Tyler Hansbrough was listed as probable for North Carolina's game tomorrow night against Nicholls State after he suffered a concussion during Sunday's victory at Rutgers.

Andray Blatche had 15 points, Brook Lopez added 14 points and 10 rebounds and the Brooklyn Nets beat the host Orlando Magic, 107-68, Friday night. The Nets never trailed while snapping a 10-game losing streak to Orlando that dated to 2009. E'Twaun Moore led the Magic with 18 points, and Arron Afflalo finished with 12. The Nets dominated inside, with Lopez and Blatche pushing around Orlando's young front line. They also got a lift from their bench, with Brooklyn's reserves outscoring their counterparts, 55-18, for the game.

Brook Lopez scored a season-high 35 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and the Brooklyn Nets improved to 2-0 under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo by beating the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers, 103-100, on Saturday night. Lopez followed his 26-point, 11-rebound performance in a victory Friday over Charlotte by shooting 13 of 20 from the field, making a number of timely baskets in the fourth quarter that the Nets ultimately needed to hold on. Deron Williams and Joe Johnson each scored 15 points for the Nets, who fired coach Avery Johnson on Thursday.

CARLOS BOOZER had 13 points and 12 rebounds, Joakim Noah gutted his way through a foot injury to make three fourth-quarter baskets, and the visiting Chicago Bulls beat the Brooklyn Nets, 90-82, on Monday night to even their first-round series at one game apiece. Luol Deng bounced back from a poor opener with 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulls, who became the first team to win a road game this postseason. Chicago held the Nets to two baskets in the third quarter to build a big enough lead to hold off a charge in the fourth.

RAY ALLEN'S three-pointer with 22.6 seconds left gave the Miami Heat the lead, and they held on to beat shorthanded San Antonio, 105-100, Thursday night to remain perfect at home this season. The Spurs played without Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green, all sent home to rest in a move that raised the ire of NBA commissioner David Stern, who said San Antonio would be sanctioned for that decision. Still, the Heat needed to rally late. Down by one, LeBron James nearly lost the ball in the lane, then recovered and found Allen - who has already hit three late-game threes to help Miami win at home this season, all set up by the reigning MVP. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said the decision to rest Duncan, Parker, Ginobili and Green was in the team's best interest.

The 76ers made franchise history Wednesday. Well, they tied it, at least. A 99-91 loss to the Brooklyn Nets at the Wells Fargo Center was the Sixers' 15th straight to open the season, tying the organization's all-time worst start. These Sixers joined the 1972-73 squad in reaching the dubious record. That team went 9-73 to set the NBA's futility mark. But this season's squad gave Brooklyn (6-8) a scare before Kevin Garnett's clutch plays. With his team clinging to a 90-89 lead, Garnett made a foul shot with 1 minute, 13 seconds remaining.

PRIOR TO yesterday's five Christmas games, the NBA sent out a press release extolling all the All-Stars, former MVPs and top scorers on the rosters of the 10 teams in action. Thing is, the memo should have been updated a wee bit. Of the 36 All-Stars - a list that included nowhere-near-All-Stars Jermaine O'Neal, Rashard Lewis and Andrei Kirilenko - nine didn't play, including O'Neal, Kirilenko, Brook Lopez, Carmelo Anthony, Luol Deng and Metta World Peace. And six MVPs were to hit the floor, but only three - LeBron James, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett - got their sneakers squeaking.

MILWAUKEE - Thaddeus Young is remorseful. The 76ers power forward learned during Saturday morning's team meeting that Brooklyn center Brook Lopez broke his right foot against the Sixers Friday night. The thing that disturbed Young is that he might have contributed to his close friend's injury, which is believed to be season-ending. The two collided with about 4 minutes, 20 seconds left in the fourth quarter of the Sixers' 121-120 overtime victory at the Wells Fargo Center. "It probably happened on that play," Young said before Saturday's game against Milwaukee at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

THE SIXERS have been done in by the Killer Threes of late, surrendering 21 of them to the Nets in Brooklyn on Monday night. And the same number to the Portland Trail Blazers in their previous game. But last night, the Sixers pulled off an inside job on the Nets, en route to a scintillating 121-120 overtime win, snapping a seven-game losing streak. The Sixers outscored the Nets, 66-30, in the paint and dominated the boards, outrebounding Brooklyn, 49-36. And it was fitting that Evan Turner score the game-winner on a drive to the basket that bounced three times on the rim before dropping through as time expired.

Evan Turner delivered. The 76ers swingman said he can score on anybody whenever he wants. That's what he did Friday night when his team needed it the most. Turner's driving layup at the buzzer gave the Sixers a much-needed 121-120 overtime victory over the undermanned Brooklyn Nets at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers (8-19) avenged an embarrassing 130-94 setback to the Nets (9-17) on Monday night at the Barclays Center. But more important, the victory snapped their seven-game losing streak.

THE COMING-OUT part is over. Now Jason Collins needs a job. Collins' stunning announcement that he was a gay athlete in a major sport won overwhelming support from other players, coaches and executives - even a phone call from the president. But it also came after the season ended for the 7-foot center and his Washington Wizards. The 34-year-old journeyman becomes a free agent on July 1 - meaning he will first have to sign with an NBA team and wait until next season to see if teammates, coaches, opponents and fans will treat him any differently.

REVIEW the tweeters and the commenters and you will realize just how unremarkable Jason Collins' declaration is. Collins will appear on the May 6 cover of Sports Illustrated , the subject of a first-person piece in which he announces his homosexuality. He presents himself as the first active male professional athlete to come out. Unless you are a severe hoops junkie, you probably do not know who Jason Collins is. Unless you are severely socially retarded, you probably do not care he is gay. For decades, the United States, home of a sports mania that has eclipsed all other forms of entertainment and information, has wondered what sort of social earthquake would erupt when a superjock acknowledged his sexual orientation was not hyper-hetero.

The Bulls were outscored by 15-1 down the stretch and failed to set up a second-round series with Miami.
