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.

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.

LAS VEGAS - Kyle Lowry is about to take his basketball career to another level. Last month, the North Philly native was one of 12 players named to the United States' men's Olympic basketball team for the Rio Olympics in August. The team begins training camp here Monday at UNLV's Mendenhall Center for an experience Lowry hopes concludes with a gold medal. "I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would get picked for Team USA, but it worked out," he said. "It's just an exciting moment, an exciting time.

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.

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.

This was an August 2014 afternoon inside the Competitive Edge Sports Complex, a training center set amid the sprawling suburbia of King of Prussia, 20 miles west of the Southwest Center City neighborhood that made Dion Waiters the person and basketball player he had since become. In truth, though, the complex was a world away from those streets. Waiters had just finished a lengthy workout there, hours of jump-shooting drills and pickup games, and it had left him sopping with sweat, with so much still possible for him, with seemingly so much left for him to lose.

WHEN CLEVELAND Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova went to the foul line with 10.1 seconds of overtime remaining in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night, 76ers coach Brett Brown saw a look he has become very familiar with through the years. "He bit down on that mouthpiece, grabbed the ball from the ref and bam, bam. He nailed both of them without any hesitation," said Brown, sounding a bit like a fan, more like a proud father. Dellavedova's two makes gave the Cavaliers a 94-93 lead in what eventually turned into a 95-93 win, evening the series with the Golden State Warriors at one game each.

HARD TO BELIEVE, or maybe not, but 31 NBA champions have been crowned since the 76ers won the title in 1983 with their four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers. Only eight teams have made up those 31 champions - Lakers (eight), Chicago (six), San Antonio (five), Detroit, Miami and Boston (three each), Houston (two) and Dallas (one) - while the winner of this year's Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors will make it nine in 32. Cleveland has never won an NBA title and the Warriors haven't held the hardware since 1975.

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.
