MARK CUBAN is still trying to get over losing DeAndre Jordan to the Clippers. Last month, the Mavericks owner publicly announced that the 6-11 free-agent center had agreed - verbally - to sign with Dallas. But then Jordan changed his mind and re-signed with the Clippers. The incident embarrassed Cuban who, in addition to not getting Jordan, was hit with a $25,000 fine from the NBA for commenting on the deal before the signing deadline. Yesterday, Cuban discussed the matter with ESPN radio's Colin Cowherd.

Jeremy Lin hit a free throw with 4.9 seconds left to overcome a dreadful second half and lift the visiting New York Knicks to their fifth straight victory, 100-98, over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night. Steve Novak scored 15 points, including the game-tying three-pointer with 36 seconds to play, and Lin used his quickness to draw a foul and get to the line in the closing seconds. He finished with 20 points, eight assists, and six rebounds. Lin had just five points on 1-for-13 shooting and four turnovers in the second half.

Texas A & M freshman DeAndre Jordan has been good on offense all season. Last night, he finally got it together on defense. Jordan had 14 points and eight rebounds, leading the 14th-ranked Aggies (10-1) to a 79-39 victory over Detroit. It was their third straight victory. "I thought DeAndre Jordan played his best game since he's been here," A & M coach Mark Turgeon said. Jordan, who leads the nation in field goal percentage, missed only the last of his eight shots. He is 46-of-58 (79.3 percent)

UCLA coach Ben Howland says All-America Kevin Love and teammate Darren Collison have not yet decided whether they will make themselves available for the NBA draft. Howland dismissed a report on the Los Angeles Times' Web site that said the players had decided to leave and were expected to hire agents, which would prevent them from returning to the Bruins. "It's an erroneous report," Howland said, adding that both players were upset about the report because they have yet to discuss their future with their families.

LOS ANGELES - It comes as no surprise that yesterday 76ers coach Doug Collins was singing the praises of one of the Los Angeles Clippers' big men. The surprise was that the coach wasn't talking solely about rookie phenom Blake Griffin. Collins spoke glowingly about Clippers center DeAndre Jordan. Jordan's numbers aren't in the "wow" category, but Collins sees more to his game than just his averages of 7.0 points and 7.0 rebounds. And, of course, there is that Griffin kid, who is one of only four players in the NBA averaging at least 20 points and 10 rebounds (Griffin is at 22.3/12.2)

THE PROPOSED move of Doc Rivers from the Boston Celtics' bench to the Los Angeles Clippers' remained in limbo over the weekend because of the teams' ongoing haggling over prized young guard Eric Bledsoe, according to sources with knowledge of the talks. Sources told ESPN that the Celtics will not consent to allow Rivers out of the final 3 years and $21 million on his contract unless they receive both Bledsoe and Clippers center DeAndre Jordan in a corresponding trade for Boston's Kevin Garnett, along with at least one future first-round pick as compensation for Rivers.

Blake Griffin's jaw-dropping one-handed jam over Kendrick Perkins sent Los Angeles Clippers fans into a frenzy, fired up his teammates, lit up the Twitterverse, and burned the Oklahoma City Thunder. Griffin had 22 points to go with Chris Paul's 26 points and 14 assists in a 112-100 victory Monday night that snapped the Thunder's four-game winning streak in a matchup of division leaders. Speaking to reporters, Griffin downplayed his monster move, allowing only a brief sly smile in between an aw-shucks demeanor.

MARK CUBAN had a bad week. On Tuesday, the Mavericks owner was fined $25,000 for prematurely announcing free-agent DeAndre Jordan had agreed to a four-year deal worth an excess of $80 million. Yesterday, the Clippers announced they had re-signed Jordan to a four-year deal reportedly worth $88 million. That came one day after Clippers coach Doc Rivers and several players showed up at Jordan's Houston home and convinced the center to remain with the team. According to ESPN's Chris Broussard, Cuban was also in Houston on Wednesday.

THERE WAS the stutter-step dribble that led to a lefthanded floater. Another time it was the one-dribble power move to the left that led to a layup. There also was a quick power move to the right baseline over a smaller defender that went for a dunk and an ensuing free throw. He also ran down Chris Paul from behind and flicked the ball away from him during a dribble, leading to a basket at the other end. Nerlens Noel's progression can't be talked or written about enough. Last night, he was matched up against Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, one of the premier rebounders and shot blockers in the NBA, though offensively challenged.

IT SEEMS such a foregone conclusion that Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram will go 1-2 in the draft that Thursday's intrigue won't begin until the Celtics are on the clock with pick No. 3.

As trade talks heat up and rumors swirl like waterspouts during a hurricane, here are 25 things to know about Thursday's draft.

76ers coach Brett Brown's popularity takes a hit after every close loss. That's what happens when your team is 8-44 and fans are tired of tanking. But Doc Rivers, an NBA champion with the Boston Celtics and the current coach and president of basketball operations for the Los Angeles Clippers, preaches yet more patience for the beleaguered Brown. "His teams play hard every night," Rivers said Monday before a 98-92 overtime victory over the Sixers. Rivers, who has coached his own struggling teams over his 17 seasons, said it's hard for the Sixers to constantly hear talk "about them being traded, about what the team is not doing, about the draft the following year.

IF THERE WAS ever a moment perfectly suited for 76ers rookie Jahlil Okafor to show what he has learned, it was the one that presented itself with just over 10 seconds to go in the fourth quarter Monday against the Los Angeles Clippers. The game was tied and the Sixers were inbounding from midcourt. The plan was to get Okafor the ball in an isolation against Clippers center DeAndre Jordan about 15 feet from the basket. There, coach Brett Brown envisioned, Okafor could either take Jordan to the basket on the dribble or free himself up for a midrange jump shot.

Coming off Saturday's win over the Brooklyn Nets, the 76ers had a chance - a legitimate chance - to start an actual winning streak. For the first 6 minutes, 36 seconds of Monday's game, they led the favored Los Angeles Clippers by 12 points. After weathering a Clippers run, the Sixers extended their lead to 19 points with 4:24 before intermission. And they had an eight-point cushion with 5:59 remaining in the game. Once again, however, they managed to find a way to lose. The Clippers ended the game on a 22-8 run to take a 98-92 overtime victory at the Wells Fargo Center.

A LOOK at the Los Angeles Clippers shows just how daunting a task confronts Sam Hinkie. Hinkie, the Sixers' general manager, has said numerous times that the goal of "The Plan" and "The Process" the Sixers are going through is to build a team that will be playing "in June. " While Hinkie has never specifically said "NBA Finals," the league's championship series usually begins the first week in June, so it is really the only basketball being played during that month. In each of the previous three seasons, the Clippers have won at least 55 games.

LOS ANGELES - It was a night on which the 76ers didn't have any answers. They were being torched with their small lineup.

It was also the most points the Sixers (3-33) have allowed. The 31-point outcome was the Clippers' largest margin of victory.

As the NBA regular season winds down, there are really only two reasons to watch the 76ers play these days. One is to see the continuing and stunning progress of center Nerlens Noel in a rookie season that gets more impressive by the month. The other is to see the opponent, especially one that is primed with a full supply of legitimate NBA talent. Both circumstances intersected when the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Sixers, 119-98, on Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
