To commemorate the Sixers' 50th season in Philly, the Daily News will be looking back at the franchise's Top 25 defining moments, one moment every Friday through the end of the season. Not to forget the bad times, we also will remind you of the lean times, 13 of them in all, to run alternate weeks (No. 12 is next Friday). It was 1997, Larry Brown's first year in Philadelphia and, as we came to learn, patience was never one of his virtues. There were 22 players who donned a Sixers uniform that first season in which the team went 31-51 and the thought of getting to the NBA Finals any time soon seemed ridiculous.

Andray Blatche had 15 points, Brook Lopez added 14 points and 10 rebounds and the Brooklyn Nets beat the host Orlando Magic, 107-68, Friday night. The Nets never trailed while snapping a 10-game losing streak to Orlando that dated to 2009. E'Twaun Moore led the Magic with 18 points, and Arron Afflalo finished with 12. The Nets dominated inside, with Lopez and Blatche pushing around Orlando's young front line. They also got a lift from their bench, with Brooklyn's reserves outscoring their counterparts, 55-18, for the game.

Jason Terry's bid to become sixth man of the year is off to quite a start. Asked to provide instant offense from the bench, Terry did so last night, scoring 31 points and guiding a late 14-4 run that carried the Dallas Mavericks past the Houston Rockets, 107-98. Tracy McGrady had 35 points and eight assists, and Yao Ming had 21 points and 11 rebounds, yet the Rockets lost for the first time this season. Houston had been 3-0 under new coach Rick Adelman. Before tip-off, Adelman said he viewed this game and the next one - tonight at home against San Antonio - as true tests of his team's progress.

Jerry Stackhouse is sticking with Dallas, agreeing to a 3-year deal to remain the Mavericks' sixth man. The details of the deal, agreed to Thursday night, were still being finalized yesterday, according to a team official involved in negotiations. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of league rules against any comments before the signing period begins Wednesday. Stackhouse, 32, will make more than the midlevel exception, which is expected to be set at roughly $6 million.

Don Nelson made a triumphant return to Dallas - barely, and in one of the wild finishes that remind him how stressful coaching can be. Baron Davis scored 26 points and Jason Richardson added 22, just enough for the Golden State Warriors to hold off the Mavericks last night, 107-104, in their new coach's return to his old stomping grounds. "I never expected this win," said Nelson, who came out of retirement late this summer to take over the Warriors. "I didn't think we'd be able to beat a good team at this point of the season, but I was wrong.

He would take back none of it, even as he knows he was wrong to do some of the things he did and say some of the things he said. Owning one's past - all of it - is really the only way for true growth. And so, Jerry Stackhouse is where he is now, happy to be a sixth man for the Dallas Mavericks, because of who he was before. "I've been able to see the epitome of the highs, going to All-Star Games, being right there in scoring championships, and now I'm able to see being able to win at the highest level," Stackhouse said last week.

The NBA Finals took a decided turn yesterday afternoon, with the league announcing it was suspending Dallas Mavericks top reserve Jerry Stackhouse for tomorrow's pivotal Game 5 for his flagrant foul on Miami Heat center Shaquille O'Neal in Game 4. Stackhouse fouled O'Neal from behind as O'Neal went in for a breakaway dunk in the third quarter of Game 4 Thursday. He was given a Flagrant One foul by the game officials on Thursday, but that foul was upgraded to a Flagrant Two by the league office yesterday.

It wasn't too long ago when the Dallas Mavericks were a one-trick pony, a team that could win only by outscoring its opponents. But that was one coach and one philosophy ago. The Mavericks of coach Avery Johnson are committed to defense, a belief they have displayed all season and put on vivid display last night at American Airlines Center in a 99-85 rout of the Miami Heat. Now they lead the best-of-seven NBA Finals by two games to none. The Mavericks dismantled Miami's half-court offense from the opening tip, with full-court pressure shredding the Heat's desire to get the ball to Shaquille O'Neal quicker, and relentless double-teaming from all over the floor, forcing O'Neal to give up the ball.
