Playing in the same arena in which she led her high school to three state titles, Maya Moore poured in 23 points Thursday night to lead the Minnesota Lynx past the Atlanta Dream, 86-77,in Duluth, Ga., to win their second WNBA title in three years. Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve (La Salle), whose Lynx were unbeaten in seven playoff games this year, said before the game that her team did not want to return home to play again. "When we come back to Minneapolis, it's going to be for a parade," she said.

Matt Cullen scored the only goal in a shoot-out and the Carolina Hurricanes tied Ottawa atop the Eastern Conference with a 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning last night. Martin St. Louis, who has yet to put the puck in the net in the NHL's new tiebreaker, hit the post with his attempt in the third and final round to fall to 0 for 3. The Lightning missed a chance to extend their lead even further over Atlanta for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East, but did stretch it to three points.

THE HAWKS and Philips Arena will be sold to California developer and pizza chain owner Alex Meruelo, but the NBA team will remain in Atlanta, a person familiar with the deal said yesterday. The deal, subject to the approval of the NBA, is to be announced today, the source said. The Hawks' ownership group, led by Michael Gearon Jr. and Bruce Levenson, also recently sold the NHL Atlanta Thrashers to a group that has moved the team to Winnipeg. The Thrashers deal was for a reported $170 million.

On this night in Atlanta, Kobe Bryant recalled some of his younger days in Philly. Bryant scored 37 points, including two drives to spark a 14-2 second-half run, and the Los Angeles Lakers spoiled Atlanta's home opener, beating the Hawks, 103-97, last night. Bryant, who earlier announced that he and his wife, Vanessa, would be parents again, topped the 30-point mark for the fourth straight game and had 37 for the second straight game. On a night the Philips Arena game clock and shot clock rarely worked, the public address announcer had to call out the scores.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Daniel Sedin scored his second power-play goal of the game, and Chris Higgins and Mason Raymond added man-advantage goals in the third period for the Vancouver Canucks, who routed the San Jose Sharks, 7-3, on Wednesday night for a two-games-to-none lead in the Western Conference finals. Defenseman Aaron Rome also scored his first NHL playoff goal with 5 minutes, 30 seconds remaining as the Canucks poured it on late. The game turned when Kevin Bieksa scored the go-ahead goal on a breakaway with 7:55 left in the second period.

ATLANTA - The 76ers' losing streak educated Brett Brown about his new surroundings. "I've learned that this city does have patience," the rookie head coach said of Philadelphia. "I'm proud of the city. " Philadelphia's sports fans may still take a beating in the national media, but they have shown tolerance while the Sixers (16-57) sacrifice wins in pursuit of a top lottery pick in June's draft. That support did not seem to waver as the Sixers matched the record for consecutive losses by a U.S. professional team with 26. The Sixers ended the slump Saturday night with a 123-98 win at the Wells Fargo Center.

ATLANTA - The big question is: Will James Anderson do it again? The 76ers shooting guard will get his first opportunity Friday night against the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena. And if Anderson does it here, the Sixers (5-4) should handle the Hawks (4-4). The 6-foot-6, 215-pounder scored a career-high 36 points in Wednesday's 123-117 overtime victory against the Houston Rockets. It was the most points by a Sixer since Willie Green scored 37 against the Toronto Raptors on April 18, 2007.

He has lived with a tenuous job status for months, and the only reprieve for Terry Stotts is when he is on the court, teaching the game of basketball. It is then that the interim head coach of the Atlanta Hawks doesn't have to worry about reading the want ads. There is nothing more that Stotts would like to do than shed the interim tag. He works for a team that is about to be sold, and where Stotts lands is anybody's guess, including his. If he has his say, he'll remain the coach of the Hawks, a downtrodden team that is coming off a 35-47 season and certainly has not been aided by the current state of uncertain affairs.

An upset of the top-seeded Dallas Desperadoes opened a window of opportunity for the Soul to play host to the Arena League National Conference championship game. The Georgia Force quickly shut it last night, eliminating the Soul, 65-39, before 11,225 at Philips Arena. Georgia (15-2) will play host to Columbus (9-9) for an ArenaBowl berth on Saturday. Philadelphia finishes 9-9 with its second straight divisional-round elimination. With Dallas out of the picture after its 66-59 loss to Columbus on Saturday, all the Soul had to do was beat a Georgia team that went undefeated at home during the 2007 regular season, putting up 50 points or more each time.

ATLANTA - One of the remarkable traits of the 76ers this season is their ability to let go of something and move on to the next challenge. That was the case in Atlanta on Saturday when, just 24 hours after suffering a 20-point home loss to the Miami Heat, the Sixers whipped the Hawks, 98-87, at Philips Arena in front of 18,012. "There were two teams coming off losses, and one of us had to decide which one wasn't going to get another one," said Atlanta native Lou Williams, who finished with 14 points and was one of six Sixers to score in double figures.

ATLANTA - As far as laughers go, this one was a real yukfest. Just don't tell coach Doug Collins that. Rare have been games this season for the 76ers in which Collins could run a play successfully, then, with a shrug of the shoulders, tell his team to do it again. Kind of, "if it worked once, why not do it again . . . " That's pretty much how easy it was for the Sixers last night as they pasted the Atlanta Hawks, 117-83, at Philips Arena. It was a thorough beat down and a fantastic beginning to what is a tough six-game string before the All-Star break begins next week.

ATLANTA - "Play to win, play to win. " That was what 76ers coach Doug Collins repeatedly shouted to his players during the fourth quarter of last night's game against the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena. His pleads fell on deaf ears as the Sixers could do nothing right on the offensive end late in the game and wound up losing, 93-88, in a game they didn't trail for the first 47 minutes, 29 seconds. It appeared early that Collins' move to insert Jodie Meeks into the starting lineup and move rookie Evan Turner to the bench would work.
