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.

But the Lions emerged with a 32-31 win and the championship. The Panthers were 1 minute, 30 seconds away from the four-peat, leading by 31-27.

Here is a look at Buddy Hield, one of the best shooting guards available in Thursday's NBA draft: School: Oklahoma. Height: 6-foot-4. Weight: 212 pounds. Skinny: Hield averaged 25 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 2.0 assists and led the NCAA in three-point percentage (45.7) last season. He won the Wooden, Oscar Robertson, and Naismith player of the year awards. NBA executive's take: "With Buddy Hield, you basically know what you are going to get, because he's an older draft prospect.

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.

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.

It turned out the Sixers came up a mere 63 wins short of landing Kevin Durant when the NBA's free agency period began over the weekend. That was the regular-season difference between the Sixers and the Golden State Warriors, the NBA Finals runner-up which has reportedly lured Durant with a two-year, $54.3 million contract. The free agency windows are open, and there is money flying through, but contracts can't become official until the league year begins Thursday. That is also the date when the terms of the NBA's most recent TV deals take effect, and teams will be so awash in cash that many crazy things will take place.

NOW YOU can hate them. Unequivocally, unabashedly, unrelentingly. Call Draymond Green a punk, call Steph Curry a baby and Klay Thompson a freak. If you like. Hate the Golden State Warriors as if they won that Game 7 of the NBA Finals, as if they had won in five games as we all expected when they took that three games-to-one lead over the Cavaliers. That they didn't is one reason Kevin Durant is now a Warrior. He agreed to a two-year, $54.3 million deal Monday, his personal independence day - a deal that was less about titles or money and much more about legacy.

That man on the Golden State Warriors' bench, the one they sometimes see Warriors head coach Steve Kerr talking to - they recognize that guy, even almost two decades later. In his eighth NBA stop, Ron Adams is acknowledged as an NBA defensive guru, an assistant coach to be trusted with a vital part of the game. For a group of guys around Philadelphia in their late 20s, Adams isn't just any assistant coach - he also was their assistant coach, when they were a little band of third graders at Valley Forge Elementary School, playing in the Malvern Summer League.

ED BARKOWITZ   It's fun to imagine what Dr. James Naismith would think of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. It'd probably be something along the lines of a caveman trying to figure out an iPhone. As dazzling as the "Splash Brothers" are, this is LeBron James' moment. There are no excuses. The Cavaliers had plenty of rest breezing through the NBA's JV conference while Golden State was pushed to seven games in a wonderful West Finals. James will have help this year from Kevin Love and, more importantly, Kyrie Irving.

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.
