The 76ers may have played some ugly basketball games this season, but they just might have saved their worst one for last night against the only team in the NBA with a worse record than they have. The Sixers were buried under a Memphis avalanche that put them down 25 points in the second quarter, and they fell to the Grizzlies, 118-102. The Grizzlies equaled the Sixers' victory total of 10 for the season, although they have one more defeat than the Sixers. The team that finishes with the worst record has the best odds of winning the NBA lottery and the No. 1 overall pick.

For three quarters, he was ordinary. Then, when it mattered most, LeBron James was unstoppable. James scored 39 points, including 24 in the fourth quarter, to help the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers rally for a 93-90 victory over the Toronto Raptors yesterday. "In the fourth quarter, he was amazing," Cleveland coach Mike Brown said. "He just took the game over and put us on his back. What a tremendous, tremendous performance. " James, who made eight of 10 field goal attempts in the fourth, said tuning out distractions helped his concentration.

After a preseason in which Miami routinely faced huge deficits, then endured a 42-point loss to Chicago on opening night, Heat coach Pat Riley wondered whether his team was on the cusp of a crisis. Shaquille O'Neal doesn't think that's the case. O'Neal had 21 points and nine rebounds, Dwyane Wade added 17 points and the Miami Heat shook off the effects of a humbling opening-night rout to defeat the visiting New Jersey Nets, 91-85, last night. "Bad things that happen to us," O'Neal said, "will only make us stronger.

Alonzo Mourning once was larger than life, the Miami Heat's biggest star. Now, even he acknowledges those days are gone. Yet Mourning also steadfastly believes he can still play at a championship-caliber level. And now, at last, he's back with Miami and ready to resume his past quest - delivering the Heat's first NBA title. The seven-time All-Star center signed a contract yesterday to rejoin Miami, the team with whom he spent eight previous seasons - a stint twice interrupted by kidney disease.

LeBron James kept his cool when his teammates lost theirs. James scored 37 points and Zydrunas Ilgauskas added 21 to lead host Cleveland past Dallas yesterday, 100-80, despite the ejection of two players. The Cavaliers, who led by 20 points in the second quarter, looked as if they would implode late in the third quarter when Robert Traylor and Drew Gooden were tossed for arguing Traylor's foul on Jerry Stackhouse. Traylor threw his arm band into the crowd, and Gooden followed by whipping his head band into the seats.

The Memphis Grizzlies entered last night's game against the 76ers ranked first in the NBA in three-point percentage at 39.0 percent, and with two players - Mike Miller and Shane Battier - among the league leaders. That was a potential problem for the Sixers, who have allowed more three-pointers (325) and three-point attempts (933) than anyone else in the league, although their 34.8 percent mark is a respectable 10th in the NBA. Sixers coach Jim O'Brien said the best way to deal with three-point shooting is to make sure his defense gets up on whoever has the ball and strongly defend the pick-and-roll.

MIAMI - Back with a blowout, and, no, the Miami Heat didn't need to lean on LeBron to get it. Not when Mario Chalmers and everyone else came through. Chalmers led the charge, James broke out to finish it with a flurry and the Heat used a 33-5 run to blow away the San Antonio Spurs, 103-84, last night to even the NBA Finals at one game apiece. James missed 10 of his first 13 shots and the Heat trailed by a point late in the third quarter before unleashing the lethal brand of basketball that led it to a franchise-record 66 wins this season.

Frank Fortino was a light 220-pounder as a sophomore. He's a sturdy 195-pounder as a junior. The Haddonfield High School athlete still can compete at the higher weight class. He bumped up to 220 pounds on Friday and registered a pin in the Bulldogs' 50-24 victory over Sterling in a Colonial Conference match. But while Fortino might spend the regular season toggling between weights for the betterment of the team, he's hoping to make a deep run in the individual tournament in late February and March at 195 pounds.

DWYANE WADE'S role as captain of the Miami Heat comes with certain privileges. For example, he can occasionally shake off calls from Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. Wade and LeBron James each scored 22 points, Mike Miller added 14 off the bench, and the Heat rode the strength of a brilliant 18-minute run midway through the game to beat the visiting New Orleans Hornets, 109-95, last night. The Hornets finished with only 25 rebounds, the lowest total in the NBA this season. James had 11 rebounds - more than any two Hornets - and eight assists for Miami, which had six players in double figures and outscored New Orleans 54-23 from the midpoint of the second quarter through the end of the third.

Damon Jones offered an apology before the game. He wasn't sorry for anything he did during it. Jones, who was ejected for the first time in his career in Cleveland's previous game, made three three-pointers in the fourth quarter and two free throws in the final seconds, helping the Cavaliers hold off the visiting Memphis Grizzlies, 97-94, last night. Drew Gooden scored a season-high 22 points with 15 rebounds and LeBron James kicked in 15 points and nine assists for the Cavs, who nearly blew a 20-point lead in the second half before making big shots and big plays down the stretch to improve the Eastern Conference's best record to 8-3. On Saturday, Jones was tossed from Cleveland's loss in Washington for arguing with officials.
