CLEVELAND - The first time reserve guard Jeremy Pargo stepped on the court with the 76ers it was as an opponent, and what a night it was. Filling in for injured all-star point guard Kyrie Irving on Nov. 21, Pargo, in his first start of the season, posted a career-high 28 points in a 92-83 Cleveland victory. Pargo went on to start 11 games for the Cavaliers before he was waived and eventually signed by the Sixers. However, it was not his big night against the Sixers that Pargo wanted to talk about before Friday's game between the teams.

ALLEN IVERSON is still not worried about practice. Iverson announced the rosters for his Las Vegas Superstar Challenge, scheduled for Nov. 12 and 13, and was asked whether he would be practicing to get ready for the event. "I didn't come here to talk about practice," he said, laughing, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "I'll have enough workouts to make sure I come here in shape and ready to play. " Iverson is hoping the tournament can serve as an audition to get him back in the NBA, but if the lockout ends, the event could be canceled.

Gerald Henderson scored 27 points, Kemba Walker had 23 points and a career-high 13 assists, and the Bobcats defeated a New York Knicks team playing without Carmelo Anthony and a few others, 106-95, on Monday night in Charlotte, N.C. The victory was the second straight for the Bobcats, who pulled into a tie with Orlando for the worst record in the league. The Knicks played only seven players, resting Anthony and others after wrapping up the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

CLEVELAND - Cavaliers guard and Philadelphia native Dion Waiters has been named to the NBA all-rookie first team and forward/center Tyler Zeller to the second team.

Among all rookies, he ranked second in points, fourth in assists and fourth in steals per game. Waiters was joined on the first team by Portland's Damian Lillard, the league's rookie of the year, Washington's Bradley Beal, New Orleans' Anthony Davis and Golden State's Harrison Barnes.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - It doesn't matter to Andre Iguodala that almost one full month has gone by since the Charlotte Bobcats last won a basketball game. The only thing that matters to Iguodala and his 76ers teammates is that the Bobcats are next up. "That's the difference between us this year and last year," Iguodala said Saturday after the Sixers improved to 19-9 with a 99-84 victory over a Cleveland team that was missing starters Kyrie Irving and Anderson Varejou. "Last year, we had a tendency to play down to the level of our competition.

Jeremy Lin did it again, this time leading the Knicks back from 17 points down and hitting a winning three-pointer with five-tenths of a second left. Lin's perfect run at point guard continued Tuesday night in Toronto's Air Canada Centre as the Knicks won for the sixth straight time, beating the Raptors, 90-87. The season-high crowd of 20,092 roared as Lin drained a pull-up jumper from the top of the key with half a second to play to give the Knicks their first lead since the opening quarter.

JR Smith scored 20 points, Carmelo Anthony had 19, and the New York Knicks shook off more bad injury news before beating the Cleveland Cavaliers, 91-75, at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. Already without Amar'e Stoudemire, the Knicks announced before the game that Jeremy Lin would have surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee and could miss six weeks. That leaves them without their second- and third-leading scorers as they try to hold onto a playoff spot.

LeBron James had 23 points and 10 rebounds, and the Miami Heat never trailed on the way to beating the Washington Wizards, 102-72, on Saturday night. Bradley Beal scored 19 points and Cartier Martin added 18 for the Wizards, who beat the Heat, 105-101, in Washington on Dec. 4. This one went much differently. Consider: By halftime, Miami already had 50 points. Through three quarters, Washington still had only 46. Elsewhere: In New York, Raymond Felton scored 25 points, and the Knicks overcame Kyrie Irving's career-high 41 points and the absence of Carmelo Anthony to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 103-102.

  Paul Pierce and Ray Allen scored 22 points each, and the Boston Celtics rebounded from a lopsided loss and handed one to Portland, beating the Trail Blazers, 104-86, in Boston Friday night. The win came after Boston lost by 32 points to the 76ers on Wednesday, its worst setback in more than six years. Kevin Garnett grabbed seven defensive rebounds to move into second place on the NBA's career list since the league started keeping the stat in 1973-74. Elsewhere: Ersan Ilyasova scored 26 points, and the Milwaukee Bucks held on for a 119-114 victory over the New York Knicks in New York.

LOOKS AS IF Cavaliers guards Dion Waiters and Kyrie Irving are on better terms. Last season, things reportedly got so heated between the two that a players-only meeting was called. Yesterday, Waiters gave Irving some love while commenting on a statement by Wizards guard Bradley Beal. On Monday, Beal said he and John Wall were "definitely the best backcourt in the league. " Yesterday, Waiters responded. "That's nonsense," the Philly-born Waiters told reporters after practice.

CLEARLY, you can indeed go home again, and if you are LeBron James, you dramatically change the entire power hierarchy of the National Basketball Association when you do it. The only thing close to the shakeup that James has caused by deciding to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers 4 years after he deserted them to take his talents to the Miami Heat was when Michael Jordan retired for the first time from the Chicago Bulls in 1993. "His Airness" put the basketball down for 1 1/2 seasons to pick up a baseball bat, but that did not kick off the domino effect that King James leaving South Beach has. In one heart-tug to return to his roots, James has reduced the Heat from a team that had gone to four consecutive NBA Finals and won two championships to one that very well soon could be preparing for the lottery.

I MUST CONCEDE that the first phase of the Sixers' long-range plan to build a championship contender has succeeded wildly. President/general manager Sam Hinkie came in swinging a wrecking ball at the franchise and leveled it to rock bottom. Unless you live in Milwaukee, the Sixers are hands-down the worst team in the league. Their 15 wins are presently two more than the Bucks, but the Sixers' level of incompetence is on the verge of passing anything the NBA has seen in its nearly 70 years of existence.

NEW ORLEANS - It was a record-setting showcase at the Smoothie King Center. Carmelo Anthony broke the NBA All-Star Game's record for the most three-pointers. Blake Griffin set the record for the most field goals. And sparked by Anthony and Kyrie Irving, the Eastern Conference all-stars recorded a come-from-behind, 163-155 victory over their Western Conference counterparts on Sunday night. The East snapped a three-game All-Star Game losing streak. In the process, the squad's point total shattered the record of 155 scored by the West in a double-overtime victory in 2003.

NEW ORLEANS - There was debate before this All-Star Game as to whether 76ers rookie Michael Carter-Williams would benefit from a full weekend of activity around the best players in the world, or if his worn body could use the much-needed rest and relaxation. Coach Brett Brown, a veteran of a few All-Star Games as an assistant, was a strong proponent of the former. He believes MCW will benefit from being exposed to what it takes to be an All-Star, both on and off the court. The coach was right, it appears.

STANDING at 6-6, Constitution High junior forward Ahmad "JR" Gilbert can catch and shoot with ease over most defenders. The smooth lefty with the feathery jump shot beats teams from wherever he wants. At 5-10, Kimar Williams has a different view of the world, and court. "I would love to be that tall," Williams said, flashing a smile. "I wish I was. " The junior guard isn't small on heart. He scored nine of his 13 points in yesterday's competitive first half against host Frankford, and most of his baskets were of the high-degree-of-difficulty variety.

It was an obvious question, one that needed an answer. The 76ers focus on the inside game in their defense. But will their seemingly nonexistent perimeter defense make coach Brett Brown reassess that? "At times, it does," Brown said. "You like to have a team that says: 'Tonight we are playing this type of team. We are going to do this.' Then we are playing this type of team, then we are going to do that. "We need to keep it simple for our guys. And sometimes it doesn't work.

CLEVELAND - The 76ers came up on the short end of a thriller. The Cleveland Cavaliers took a 127-125 double-overtime decision in front of 20,562 Saturday night at the Quicken Loans Arena. The victory enabled the Cavs (3-4) to snap a two-game skid and split this weekend's home-and-home series with the Sixers (4-3), who prevailed, 94-79, on Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. "We were trying to adjust," said Sixers swingman Evan Turner, who finished with a career-high 31 points.

AS THE Cleveland Cavaliers await word from Andrew Bynum, two other teams have joined the chase for the free-agent center. Bynum, who didn't play a single second for the Sixers last season because of knee injuries, is considering a 2-year offer from the Cavs, a person familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press yesterday. Cleveland made the offer, which includes a team option in the second year, during his visit to the Cavs' facility Monday. Bynum did not work out but the team examined him thoroughly.

Ja'Quan Newton's jumper swooshed through the net on Sunday afternoon, ending Team Final's nearly 21/2-hour afternoon practice in Neumann-Goretti's muggy gym. The city's best high school basketball player wiggled his fingers and acted as if his hands were on fire. "Can you cool them off for me?" Newton asked an assistant coach with a smile before the team huddled. Brimming with confidence, the 6-foot-2 point guard is having a torrid summer. Newton, who stars for South Philadelphia's Neumann-Goretti High during the school year, has strung together stellar performances with Team Final in AAU play.
