Samuel Dalembert didn't hit the game-tying, overtime-forcing deuce. He didn't even score a point in the extra session. But the blocks he made of two shots by Memphis center Pau Gasol in OT were as responsible for the 76ers' 89-86 win last night as any play. When you're not known for your offensive repertoire, you relish any opportunity to affect the outcome of a game. "Someone like me doesn't get to touch the ball as much or get to score as much," Dalembert said. "It's a good feeling for me to touch it on the defensive end. " At first in overtime, Dalembert missed a 7-foot hook shot.

So, that block. You saw it, right? You saw Dario Saric - 22 years old, 6-foot-10, the kid the 76ers have been waiting on for more than two years - rise off the Carioca Arena floor in Rio on Sunday night and bat away that baby hook by Spain's Pau Gasol at the buzzer, right? (By the way, that's Pau Gasol: 7 feet tall, six-time NBA all-star, two-time NBA champion.) Amid the slew of stories over the first few days of these Olympic Games, you saw how Saric preserved the most improbable and surprising victory so far of the entire men's basketball tournament?

Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 18 points and Chris Mihm had 11 points and 10 rebounds. Bryant turned in his second low-scoring performance after scoring 17 points Friday against the Sixers.

THE LAKERS closed out their miserable season at San Antonio last night. Pau Gasol was courtside even though he couldn't play because of vertigo. Kobe Bryant was not. Bryant, of course, hasn't played since December because of a fractured left knee. According to the Los Angeles Times, Bryant and his family left for France either yesterday or the day before. Bryant has not attended every game this season. But, according to the Times, the Lakers were unaware he had left the country.

GROWING UP - well, at 22 he still is growing up - Richaun Holmes religiously watched his favorite NBA team on the television. A native of Lockport, Ill., about an hour outside of Chicago, he studied each and every player who came through the Bulls' system as a youth. He dreamed of one day playing for them. Holmes had a dream come true Monday at the Wells Fargo Center, even if he wasn't playing for his favorite childhood team. He got to start his first NBA against them, though, as he filled in the starting spot vacated by Nerlens Noel, who was down because of sore wrists suffered in Friday's game in Cleveland.

The 76ers entertained another undermanned team Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. This time, the Chicago Bulls were without three injured starters in point guard Derrick Rose (right knee), shooting guard Jimmy Butler (left-elbow sprain), and center Joakim Noah (left knee) along with their sixth man, Taj Gibson (left ankle). But unlike in Saturday night's win against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sixers were unable to capitalize. Aaron Brooks had a lot to do with that. The point guard finished with a game-high 31 points to lead the Bulls to a 104-95 overtime victory.

During his July basketball camp at the University of California at Santa Barbara, Kobe Bryant took a break from teaching the triangle offense to all those open-mouthed kids for a consequential conversation with his old coach and confidant, Gregg Downer. Bryant was turning 36 in less than two months, and last November he had signed a two-year extension with the Los Angeles Lakers that was worth $48.5 million and that ran through the 2015-16 season. Downer, the head coach at Lower Merion High School, had flown to the West Coast to volunteer as a counselor at the camp, and maybe it took the presence of a trusted mentor and friend for Bryant to confess the truth: Come the expiration of that contract, he told Downer, there would be no hanging on, no reconsidering, no seeking a trade to another team.

At times, he could be matched up against Orlando's Nik Vucevic, Chicago's Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah, Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki and Tyson Chandler, Houston's Dwight Howard for a second time, and San Antonio's Tim Duncan. Howard gave Noel his first test Monday at the Wells Fargo Center, producing 11 points, 14 rebounds, and four blocked shots.

It's been a few decades since the 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers have both had losing seasons in the same year. This streak is about to end for these two former marquee NBA franchises that are scrambling for the better lottery position. In a game that lacked the usual luster, the Lakers defeated the Sixers, 112-98, Friday night before 15,211 at the Wells Fargo Center. It was the fifth consecutive loss for the Sixers, the seventh straight at home, and second straight win for the Lakers.

Last offseason, the Houston Rockets were an afterthought, a young team with little star power. Now, after trading for James Harden just before this past season and adding Dwight Howard on Friday, Houston is suddenly primed to contend sooner than almost anybody expected. Still, Houston general manager Daryl Morey knows nabbing Howard is only the first step in a long process for his team. "We haven't accomplished anything yet, but we're putting something pretty cool together, I think," Morey said in an interview with Comcast SportsNet Houston.
