Rookie Mitch Richmond scored a career-high 47 points and the Golden State Warriors rode an NBA-record 57-point third quarter to a 155-143 victory last night over the Sacramento Kings. The whirlwind game, which featured 45 points by Sacramento's Danny Ainge and 34 by Golden State's Chris Mullin, produced the highest point total of any game this season. The Warriors' third quarter missed by one the NBA record for most points in any quarter, and their 155 points were the most by any Warriors team since the 169 points scored March 2, 1962, when Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points against the New York Knicks.

The public relations manager for the Golden State Warriors was fired yesterday for inadvertently sending out a racially insensitive e-mail titled "Ghetto Prom" to the team's entire media distribution list. Eric Govan, the No. 3 person on the Warriors' media-relations staff, sent the e-mail featuring 17 photos, many depicting scantily clad black people in formal attire and commentary on the outfits. The e-mail went to dozens of newspaper reporters, columnists and sports editors, as well as television and radio stations.

Even shorthanded, the Utah Jazz outran the Golden State Warriors. Derek Fisher missed most of the first three quarters because of a family illness, then scored all five of his points in overtime to lead Utah to a 127-117 victory over the visiting Warriors last night and a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinals. 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.

But the Mavericks finally became involved in something big this weekend: an eight-player deal with the Golden State Warriors, according to published reports.

Leave it to Manute Bol, last seen talking to the Harlem Globetrotters about a job, to find NBA redemption in a most unlikely place. Bol was in Paris yesterday, negotiating to join the Golden State Warriors as the team prepared to play Charlotte tonight on the league's preseason around-the-world slate. Warriors coach Don Nelson, speaking from his hotel in an NBA media conference call, said Bol could be signed before game time. "It's kind of hard to hide Manute," Nelson said.

Parity has struck the NBA playoffs, where the conference semifinals are knotted at one game apiece. That's the first time that has happened in the second round of the NBA playoffs since the league went to its current format more than a quarter-century ago. For favorites like Miami, New York, San Antonio, and Oklahoma City, home-court advantage has disappeared, and now it's the underdogs who can control their own fates simply by taking care of...

ORLANDO - Saturday's game between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder was all the talk before, during and after the 76ers' shootaround Sunday morning as they prepared to face the Orlando Magic.

The upstart toppled the dynasty Saturday afternoon at Council Rock South. The New Hope-Solebury girls' basketball team had not won a district title since 1979.

BRETT BROWN has seen the swagger before. He's even owned it. It's that confident stroll of a champion entering arenas throughout the NBA, knowing that on most nights just showing up makes the battle unfair. During his days with the San Antonio Spurs, Brown experienced that overwhelming feel of superiority. He saw it on Saturday when Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors brought the most-talked-about show in sports to the Wells Fargo Center to face Brown's 76ers. But a strange thing happened during the Warriors' 108-105 win, one that wasn't decided until Harrison Barnes drained a three-pointer from the right sideline with 0.2 seconds remaining.

Facing his locker stall, a white towel draped atop his head, Steph Curry muttered "Bad, bad, bad" to no one in particular Saturday night, the NBA's biggest star betraying his displeasure over a game that could have gotten away from the NBA's best team. The 76ers had shocked Curry and the Golden State Warriors with a stirring comeback from a 24-point deficit, tying the score with 22.3 seconds left only to have the Warriors use 22.1 seconds to run a perfect halfcourt sequence: Curry penetrating and passing to Draymond Green at the foul line, Green kicking the ball to Harrison Barnes in the corner for an open three-pointer, Barnes swishing it for a 108-105 Warriors victory.

CURIOUS AS to what coach Brett Brown's idea might be on how to slow down Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors when they visit the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, 76ers point guard Ish Smith approached his coach about the defensive plan. "I asked him if we were going to have a high pickup, pick up (Curry) at halfcourt," Smith said. "He said 'No, they get in at around 5 o'clock (Friday). You need to pick him up then. " What to do and how to do it against the defending world champions is a dilemma that has faced 46 Golden State opponents this season, and 42 times they have come out on the short end of what is usually a lopsided score.

JASON RICHARDS was the sophomore starting point guard for his college team when he decided to ride along with an assistant coach to go and see a recruit play a high school game. It was a pretty mature move for Richards, as the player they were going to scout was also a point guard, with a pretty big reputation. There were two ways Richards could have looked at the recruit. One, he could have seen someone who was going to come in and threaten his job. Or he could have seen a talent that would have helped the team improve.

IT SEEMS THE Golden State Warriors are facing a bigger battle off the court than on it when it comes to defending their NBA championship. Comments popped up yesterday after the Warriors' Steph Curry and Draymond Green were asked about people discussing whether their team "deserves" its title. The question was in response to Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc River harping on the fact that the Warriors didn't play anybody en route to the title. Green, the Warriors' outspoken forward, said that teams questioning the title is just sour grapes, adding that you don't hear such talk coming from teams like the San Antonio Spurs.

JASON THOMPSON's stint with the 76ers lasted less than a month. The Lenape High, N.J., product, who was acquired on July 9 from Sacramento in the deal that netted the Sixers Nik Stauskas, was traded yesterday to the Golden State Warriors for forward Gerald Wallace, both teams announced. Thompson, 29, averaged 6.1 points and 6.5 rebounds in 24.6 minutes last season for the only NBA team he had ever played for. He was drafted by Sacramento with the 12th overall pick of the 2008 draft.

HARD TO BELIEVE, or maybe not, but 31 NBA champions have been crowned since the 76ers won the title in 1983 with their four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers. Only eight teams have made up those 31 champions - Lakers (eight), Chicago (six), San Antonio (five), Detroit, Miami and Boston (three each), Houston (two) and Dallas (one) - while the winner of this year's Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors will make it nine in 32. Cleveland has never won an NBA title and the Warriors haven't held the hardware since 1975.

THE NBA FINALS begin tonight, in case you've been in the deep jungles of the Amazon the past 10 weeks. And for the fifth straight time, LeBron James will be there. But this time, unlike his previous four trips with the Miami Heat, he is the underdog, once again bringing with him an army outmanned by its opponent, the Golden State Warriors. While LeBron is built like Goliath, he's arguably the David here. And league MVP Steph Curry, the impish assassin, looks more like a David but carries enough weight to be the Goliath.
