LeBron James needs 18 points to become the 38th NBA player to score 20,000 in his career. If it happens Wednesday when the Miami Heat visit the Golden State Warriors, James (28 years, 17 days) will be more than a year younger than Kobe Bryant was when he got there at 29 years, 122 days. James would be the seventh-fastest to the 20,000 club, in his 726th regular-season game. Wilt Chamberlain needed 499 games, followed by Michael Jordan (620), Oscar Robertson (671), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (684)

Mike Woodson couldn't remember another homestand in his 26 years as an NBA player and coach as long as the eight-game stretch his Atlanta Hawks just completed. The Hawks went 7-1, with their only loss to Boston. "It's huge," Woodson said. "I've never been part of a schedule that had eight straight home games. It can either help you or hurt you, and in our case it helped. " Joe Johnson scored 25 points and the Hawks beat the visiting Denver Nuggets, 109-91, last night to close out the homestand with a long-awaited milestone.

Dwight Howard had 22 points and 17 rebounds, Vince Carter added 21 points and the visiting Orlando Magic beat the Atlanta Hawks, 93-76, last night. The Hawks, attempting to tie Phoenix for the NBA's best record, dropped to 11-4, and they missed a chance to improve to 8-0 at home for the first time since 1993-94. Orlando, meanwhile, wiped away the disappointment of a one-point home loss to Miami on Wednesday with its sixth win in seven games. Atlanta, which has dropped two straight following a seven-game winning streak, blew a 14-point lead after Joe Johnson banked in a jumper to begin the third quarter.

On this night in Atlanta, Kobe Bryant recalled some of his younger days in Philly. Bryant scored 37 points, including two drives to spark a 14-2 second-half run, and the Los Angeles Lakers spoiled Atlanta's home opener, beating the Hawks, 103-97, last night. Bryant, who earlier announced that he and his wife, Vanessa, would be parents again, topped the 30-point mark for the fourth straight game and had 37 for the second straight game. On a night the Philips Arena game clock and shot clock rarely worked, the public address announcer had to call out the scores.

NEW YORK - It's always something, especially when you are the 76ers. They finally appeared to fix their three-point offense and foul shooting, but something else popped up - an inability to defend the post. Sound familiar? It's when the Sixers defenders stand around, seemingly unaware of what's going on. And their three-point shooting?  On occasion, they are red-hot from long-range in the first half only to go ice cold after intermission. All those things happened Friday night in the Brooklyn Nets' 88-70 victory at Barclays Center.

BROOKLYN - When the 76ers last visited the Brooklyn Nets, the home team set a franchise record for three-pointers and Joe Johnson scored 29 points in a quarter. Johnson was out for the game against the Sixers at the Barclays Center last night with knee tendinitis. Also, the Sixers got back Michael Carter-Williams, who missed Saturday's game at Detroit with a sore right shoulder. The loss there dropped them to 1-11 when he isn't in the lineup. So you had to figure the stars may be aligned for the Sixers behind the snowy clouds outside the arena.

MILWAUKEE - This time, 76ers fans need to relax. There's no need to talk about their team's possibly making a postseason run with a tweak or two. Nope. Not even in a weak Eastern Conference and a significantly weaker Atlantic Division. Friday's victory over the Brooklyn Nets, on the surface, was impressive. But please don't make the same mistake you did when the Sixers (8-20) opened the season 3-0. Back then, folks forgot that the franchise is starting its rebuilding process by sacrificing wins this season.

THE SIXERS have been done in by the Killer Threes of late, surrendering 21 of them to the Nets in Brooklyn on Monday night. And the same number to the Portland Trail Blazers in their previous game. But last night, the Sixers pulled off an inside job on the Nets, en route to a scintillating 121-120 overtime win, snapping a seven-game losing streak. The Sixers outscored the Nets, 66-30, in the paint and dominated the boards, outrebounding Brooklyn, 49-36. And it was fitting that Evan Turner score the game-winner on a drive to the basket that bounced three times on the rim before dropping through as time expired.

BROOKLYN - Perhaps there have been better quarters by an individual in the history of the NBA, but you would be hard-pressed to find anyone at the Barclays Center who witnessed anything better than what Joe Johnson did during the third quarter last night. Johnson scored an amazing 29 points in the third and finished with 37 as the Brooklyn Nets drilled the 76ers, 130-94. It was the Sixers' seventh straight loss, 11th straight on the road and 15th in 17 games. They are 7-19; Brooklyn improved to 9-15.

NEW YORK - The 76ers tried to send a message that Monday night would not end in another rollover defeat. The Brooklyn Nets rolled over them anyway. After pulling within 10 points at intermission, the Sixers were unable to avoid the inevitable: their 11th straight road loss. This time, it was a 130-94 setback to the Nets at the Barclays Center. The Sixers (7-19) lost their seventh in a row overall. "I think we were just being exposed," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "We can't guard anybody.

The series goes back to Brooklyn for Game 7 tomorrow, with the winner getting defending champion Miami in the second round. "We just believed," Johnson said. "We believed in one another. In practice [Wednesday], we went over a lot. More so than anything, it was about who wanted it badder.
