Boris Diaw has played for championships before, both for a country (France) and a continent (Europe). He thinks he knows what he's getting into as his first NBA playoffs approach. "All this tension, all this pressure, it's kind of the same," Diaw said. "It's not a big deal. . . . I would almost say it's tougher in Europe, because you can't make no mistakes. One game and you're out. Here, you know it's going to be a series. You're going to win some; you're going to lose some. You have to be consistent.

In the Phoenix Suns' dressing room, Charles Barkley sat at his stall, wrapped in a towel and his thoughts. His head was down. He shook it, once, twice. "No questions," said the PR man guarding his flank. "Later. " Minutes passed before Barkley was dressed and at the podium. His Suns had lost a winnable game to the Chicago Bulls, 111-105, in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. You don't get many chances in Chicago Stadium, and the Suns had allowed one to slip away.

TORONTO - The 76ers confirmed reports that they are talking to Mike D'Antoni about joining the team as the associate head coach. However, they are publicly saying that reaching out to D'Antoni isn't related to last week's hiring Jerry Colangelo as chairman of basketball operation. The coach has 12 years of NBA head-coaching experience with the Denver Nuggets, Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers. "Having a graybeard, true-veteran-type NBA coach has been discussed for a while as it relates to growing my staff," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

Memo to Charles Barkley: Despite your belief to the contrary, no one has bashed the Phoenix Suns. After all, they finished with a record of 62-20, the best in the NBA's regular season? But the truth is, they don't have the size coming off the bench, or the overall depth, that the Chicago Bulls have. And now they're without explosive Cedric Ceballos, recovering from surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot. Remember, New York, even with home-court advantage, couldn't beat the Bulls four times and ended up losing four straight.

The two-minute run put the Suns up, 108-94, with 6 minutes, 2 seconds left in the game and left them behind, 2-1, in the best-of-seven series. Reserve Steve Burtt, used in a three-guard lineup to ensure good ball handling, made three free throws and Tim Perry made one in the final 30 seconds to preserve the victory despite 37 points by the Trail Blazers' Clyde Drexler.

Phoenix Suns center-forward Alvan Adams, saying he was mentally drained after 13 NBA seasons and four straight losing years, announced his retirement yesterday. "I don't know if I can mentally prepare to go through another year," said Adams, who will turn 34 on July 19. "It was a big decision, but it was a simple one for me. I simply do not desire to play basketball anymore. " Adams was the NBA Rookie of the Year in 1975-76 after averaging 19 points, 9.1 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game and making the All-Star team.

There are some who won't allow themselves to admit this, and it's understandable. The sudden resignation of Sam Hinkie as the 76ers' general manager and president of basketball operations Wednesday evening is too fresh in their minds. So those who have supported Hinkie's extended plan of tanking and acquiring assets are upset that he didn't (or chose not to) get a chance to see things through. They're also upset that the person who will replace him is Bryan Colangelo, the son of the Sixers' chairman of basketball operations, Jerry Colangelo.

Jerry Colangelo had a message for 76ers fans: Don't give up the Sixers. That's what Colangelo, the team's chairman of basketball operations, said during a 2 minute, 7-second video to fans posted Tuesday on the Sixers' website, Sixers.com. "We have a bright, bright future," he said. "We're watching young players develop. We're anticipating a lot of good things to happen in the very near future. "If the stars are aligned and you have a little bit of luck, we could turn this thing around much faster, much quicker than people seem to believe it's going to take.

CONCORD, N.C. Gwen Smith thought her childbearing days were over. At the time, she and her then-husband, Larry Smith, had two daughters. The older one, Lativia, was around 7 years old. The other, Serlethea, was closing in on 5. Content with the two, Smith was set to have tubal ligation to ensure that she and Larry wouldn't have anymore children. "But I was going down the road one day, and of course I was in the church - not just attending, studying and reading," Smith recalled.

The flu and injury bugs swirling around the 76ers weren't much of a problem. Two starters - center Jahlil Okafor and shooting guard JaKarr Sampson - missed the game Tuesday night with flu symptoms. Jerami Grant, who moved into the starting lineup in Okafor's absence, was also sick. Another Sixer - Isaiah Canaan - wasn't sick but played with wrist soreness. The reserve shooting guard left the game in the third quarter with a left ankle sprain. But it didn't matter as the Sixers took a 113-103 victory over the Phoenix Suns at the Wells Fargo Center.

The 76ers swear they're far from the lackluster bunch that was pummeled by the Boston Celtics on Sunday. And they say they are determined to show that Tuesday night against the Phoenix Suns at Wells Fargo Center. "I'd be very surprised if you see anything that reflects last night tomorrow," coach Brett Brown said Monday after practice at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Time will tell. But the Sixers (6-39) were dominated in just about every category in the 112-92 home setback to the Celtics.

From the whisper-filled hallways and back channels open only to a person of his power, Jerry Colangelo had learned what was ahead for him and the Phoenix Suns in the spring of 1987: a drug scandal, and its subsequent fallout, that threatened to crush the basketball organization he'd built. Three players who were on Phoenix's roster at the time and two former Suns were indicted on charges of drug trafficking - a bombshell born of overzealous police and opportunistic prosecutors and dropped with the help of the team's star, Walter Davis.

PHOENIX - Mike D'Antoni did his best Saturday to downplay his role with the 76ers. In his first official day on the job, the team's new associate head coach adeptly sidestepped a question about how much influence Jerry Colangelo had on his accepting the position. He made it a point to say that head coach Brett Brown is a great person and that he runs the show. As D'Antoni tells it, he's here only because of circumstances. "I found out that you can't play golf in the wintertime.

PHOENIX - New year, new 76ers? Maybe so. Jump-starting the final three games of what has been a disastrous 2015, the Sixers met the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night at the Talking Stick Resort Arena. The hope was to begin the final week of the season on a high note. That's exactly what happened as the Sixers took a 111-104 victory. The much-needed win improved them to 2-30. It also snapped their 12-game losing streak and marked their first road win in 24 games, dating to last season.

TORONTO - The movement the 76ers call "The Process" has changed. It became obvious on Monday, when Hall of Famer Jerry Colangelo was hired as chairman of basketball operations after NBA commissioner Adam Silver urged the Sixers to do so. It's even clearer now that Colangelo and coach Brett Brown are engaged in talks with Mike D'Antoni to become the associate head coach, according to league sources. It's a role that could be filled by late December. "The Process" we've come to know is over.
