The 76ers are considering talking to Denver assistant Melvin Hunt about their coaching job, but they might have to fend off the Nuggets. Denver is believed to be interested in promoting Hunt to replace George Karl, who was fired last week, league sources said Monday. "The Sixers have not formally made contact to begin the process, but there has been some talk through the back channels," a source said. The Sixers have not sought permission from the Nuggets to speak with Hunt, according to the source.

The starless Denver Nuggets have lost their biggest name on the bench. George Karl was ousted Thursday less than a month after winning the NBA's coach of the year award. His tenure with the Nuggets is over after 81/2 seasons. The longtime coach is following general manager Masai Ujiri out the door in Denver after Ujiri, the league's executive of the year, recently left to become GM of the Toronto Raptors. - Associated Press

It was a play they practiced all week, Derek Maltz said. If JoJo Marasco, Syracuse's star player, becomes locked up near the point, look for an open Luke Cometti. It worked three times Saturday, and Cometti scored with ease. But with the score tied and just seconds remaining, Cometti's shot slammed into the chest of the Denver goalie and landed in front of the goalmouth. In stepped Maltz, who said he was "basically in the right spot at the right time. " The junior attack kept his composure, scooped up Cometti's rebound, and fired the goal that capped a wild comeback and sent Syracuse to a 9-8 win over Denver in the NCAA men's lacrosse semifinal at Lincoln Financial Field.

In just seven minutes, his team trailed by seven goals. But the coach's plan was working just fine. It was Bill Tierney's first game as coach at the University of Denver in 2010. He wanted the Pioneers to get a taste of big-time college lacrosse and they opened the season with a 15-9 loss at Syracuse's Carrier Dome. The freshmen who were on that Denver team are now seniors. On Saturday, the fourth-seeded Pioneers (14-4) will have a chance to show how far they have come when they meet No. 1 Syracuse (15-3)

DENVER - A crowd of marijuana smokers expected to swell to 80,000 gathered Saturday in Denver to mark the counterculture holiday known as 4/20 on the first celebration since Colorado and Washington state made pot legal for recreational use. Reggae music filled the air, and so did the smell of marijuana, as revelers gathered by midmorning in a park just beside the state Capitol. Few police were in sight, though public marijuana use is still prohibited here. "People aren't afraid to come out and celebrate it the way they used to be," said Charles Bade, 52, of Denver.

NEW YORK - The Denver Post won a Pulitzer Prize on Monday for its coverage of the movie-theater massacre in Aurora, Colo., while the New York Times captured four awards for reporting on the rise of a new aristocracy in China, the business practices of Apple and Wal-Mart and a harrowing avalanche. The Associated Press received the award in breaking news photography for its coverage of the civil war in Syria.

DENVER - Prosecutors in the Colorado theater massacre case have rejected an offer from suspect James Holmes to plead guilty in exchange for avoiding the death penalty, saying the proposal can't be considered genuine because the defense has repeatedly refused to give them information needed to evaluate it. No plea agreement exists, prosecutors said in a scathing court document Thursday, and one "is extremely unlikely based on the present information available...

LeBron James left one rebound shy of a triple-double. That's about all the Heat could complain about. James finished with 24 points, 11 assists, and nine rebounds, and the Heat won their 27th straight by running away at the finish to beat the Magic, 108-94, on Monday night in Orlando, Fla. Miami pushed its lead to 20 before Heat coach Erik Spoelstra emptied the bench in what was his 250th win with the team. The Heat are within six games of matching the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers for the longest winning streak in NBA history.
