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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

CLEVELAND - While being interviewed on the court immediately after the game against the 76ers, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving laughed and apologized to the fans, calling his team's performance "one of the ugliest we've played here. " He then went on to commend the Sixers for their hard play and coach Brett Brown for the continued good work that is being put in. There was no laughter in the Sixers' locker room following the 87-86 loss. Brown was upset that the referees didn't take a look at a replay toward the end of the game to check the time on the clock and Nerlens Noel, who had a chance to win the game on a 7-footer with 2.8 seconds to go, wasn't feeling real good about the tough effort his team had just put in. Despite limiting the Cavaliers (48-27)

Playing defense wouldn't be considered the fun part of basketball for most players, but don't make that suggestion to La Salle's Khalid Lewis. The redshirt junior guard doesn't mind the grunt work. Actually, he relishes any aspect of attempting to stop the opponent. For Lewis, playing D has been a lifelong passion. "For a lot of players it isn't fun, but it is fun for me," Lewis said. "I like taking the best player and defending him and doing whatever I can to help my team win. " This is Lewis' second season with La Salle after sitting out a year following his transfer from Delaware.

CLEVELAND - Sixers coach Brett Brown once cut Matthew Dellavedova from the Australian National Team. The scrappy backup point guard exacted his revenge last night. Dellavedova made three three-pointers and scored 10 points in the final 7:09, allowing the Cleveland Cavaliers to escape with a 97-84 win over Philadelphia. The 76ers, who trailed 59-39 early in the third quarter, made it a one-possession game three times in the fourth before Dellavedova caught fire to fend off their upset bid. "My Australian friend wasn't a friend tonight," Brown quipped.

CLEVELAND - This is the homecoming JaKarr Sampson dreamed of while he was growing up in Akron. The 76ers' starting shooting guard will take the court Monday night at Quicken Loans Arena to square off against LeBron James and his once beloved Cleveland Cavaliers. "I might clown around with [James] on the court," said Sampson, an undrafted rookie free agent. "I'm sure I'll be guarding him a few possessions.

Dion Waiters said he was unaware of his role with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday morning. By 7 p.m., the Philadelphia native didn't have to worry about that. Waiters was pulled out of the starting lineup before the start of the game against the 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center. He was dealt to the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of a three-team trade. The New York Knicks sent J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to the Cavaliers and received Lou Amundson, Alex Kirk and a second-round pick in return.

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.
