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 NBA's most exciting team will come to town Monday for its only appearance of the year, a squad that scores big, defends hard, and has two all-star guards simply playing out of their minds. One more thing: The Golden State Warriors will arrive for the game at the Wells Fargo Center against the 76ers not in the best of moods. The Warriors (40-9) have the best record in the stacked Western Conference and are in the running to win the franchise's first NBA title since 1975. Yet, after a 106-92 win Saturday over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, the team's fourth game in five days, there was no gloating in the Warriors locker room.

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.

Bynum accepted the deal Wednesday night, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the agreement. The 7-foot Bynum, 25, did not play in any games last season with the 76ers because of knee injuries.   Hamilton let go The Chicago Bulls waived veteran guard Richard Hamilton, as expected.

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.

Unlike most of the other top Western Conference contenders, the Dallas Mavericks failed to make much of a splash when the NBA free-agent period began. But the Mavericks finally became involved in something big this weekend: an eight-player deal with the Golden State Warriors, according to published reports. The key players in the trade are Dallas guard Nick Van Exel and Warriors forward Antawn Jamison. The Mavericks, according to the reports, are sending Van Exel, center/forward Evan Eschmeyer, forward Popeye Jones and point guard Avery Johnson to Golden State for Jamison, power forward Danny Fortson, small forward Chris Mills and guard Jiri Welsch.

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.

KENNETH FARIED brought the energy and the Denver Nuggets rediscovered their toughness in time to stave off elimination last night with a 107-100 win over the visiting Golden State Warriors.

Game 6 is tomorrow night in Oakland. Golden State leads the series, 3-2. Andre Iguodala had 25 points and 12 rebounds, Ty Lawson had 19 points and 10 assists and Faried had 13 points and 10 boards.

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.

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.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Andre Iguodala is wary talking about Philadelphia. Being honest has bitten him in the past. "That's why I get booed all the time when I go there," Iguodala said, referring to interviews he has given over the years. His initial reaction to Philly-specific questions is to joke about lying. "I'll lie in every answer I give you," he said through laughter. But Iguodala isn't a liar. He is carefully honest, a perfectionist who displays great humility, and like many others who have come and gone through the 76ers locker room, he is enjoying success elsewhere.

THE DEBATE over how team president and general manager Sam Hinkie is going to guide the Sixers is futile. Agreeing or disagreeing with Hinkie doing whatever it takes to accumulate high draft picks makes interesting conversation, but has no influence in the decision-making process. Hinkie does what he thinks is best for the Sixers, regardless of what anyone outside team ownership thinks, and that is how it should be. We will learn the merits of Hinkie's designs later rather than sooner, when the Sixers become either the championship-contending squad they say they are building or just climb back to mediocrity and stall, as they have done since Allen Iverson and Larry Brown took them to the 2001 NBA Finals.

But watch the former St. Joseph's Prep star on the court and you see a tough and determined contributor who can score, defend, and do the little things that have led to the success this season of the Fighting Irish, a third seed in the NCAA Midwest Regional.

At 12-41, the 76ers have completed nearly two-thirds of the season as they enjoy an extended NBA all-star break. The team is off until an optional practice Tuesday and a mandatory one the next day. The Sixers will resume action Feb. 20 against the visiting Indiana Pacers, and coach Brett Brown and the players said they are looking to finish strong. Considering the season began with 17 losses, the Sixers have made progress. An 89-84 loss to the visiting Golden State Warriors on Monday was an example.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Steve Kerr is flourishing as a rookie head coach. At 25-5, the Golden State Warriors are off to the best start in franchise history. They also have the NBA's best record, a first since finishing the 1975-76 season with a 59-23 mark. Sixers coach Brett Brown has taken note of the phenomenal job his friend is doing. Brown was an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs during Kerr's stints there in the late 1990s and early 2000s. "I think he's taken this group that's had a heck of a run, the past few years anyways, and inherited something and didn't let it go," said Brown, acknowledging that Golden State averaged 49 wins the last two seasons.

SAN FRANCISCO - Tightening up their perimeter defense is one of the 76ers' top goals on their West Coast trip. "Golden State, Phoenix, Portland . . . we are going to have to get better guarding the three," coach Brett Brown said. "And that's a real learning opportunity. " Before Monday's NBA games, the Sixers (4-25) had surrendered the most three-point attempts per game (25.4) in the league. However, they were eighth in three-point percentage defense (33.7), meaning that opponents had missed a lot of shots.

OAKLAND, Calif. - The 76ers have hit rock bottom. How else can you explain their first two performances on this three-game West Coast road trip? One night after losing by 45 points, they suffered a 123-80 setback to the Golden State Warriors on Monday at the Oracle Arena. The Sixers (15-38) joined the franchise's 1993-94squad as the NBA's only teams to lose consecutive games by 40-plus points. That team suffered defeats of 48 and 45 points. This time, the Sixers' combine margin of loss was 88 points.
