MIAMI - LeBron James shrugged off a poor start to get 32 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds, Ray Allen hit a three-pointer with 5.2 seconds to play to force overtime, and the Miami Heat staved off elimination with a 103-100 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night. James missed nine of his first 12 shots, but scored 16 points in the fourth to rally the Heat from a 10-point deficit. The Heat trailed by 94-89 with 28 seconds to play, but James hit a three with 20 seconds to go and Allen drilled another to tie it. James' layup with one minute, 4 seconds to play in overtime gave the Heat a 101-100 lead, and Allen added two free throws to force Game 7, which is Thursday night in Miami.

MIAMI - Ray Allen, the NBA record holder for three- point goals, told the Miami Heat he intends to accept their contract offer and leave Boston after five seasons. Allen made the move Friday night, even though the Celtics could pay him about twice as much as Miami will be able to next season. Miami could offer Allen only the mini mid-level, worth about $3 million a year. Allen, 37, cannot officially sign until Wednesday. Miami wanted Allen because of its ongoing quest to keep surrounding its superstar core of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh with shooters who extend defenses and therefore create room around the basket for the big three to attack.

Firing from all corners as usual, the Seattle SuperSonics hit a mark Ray Allen once took for granted. Allen scored 31 points, Vladimir Radmanovic made five three-pointers and the Sonics reached the 40-win plateau, beating host Cleveland last night, 103-86. The surprising Sonics, one of the NBA's best outside shooting teams, went 10-for-17 from behind the arc to improve to 40-16 this season and 5-1 - 4-1 on the road - since the All-Star break. Predicted by many to finish at the bottom of the Northwest Division, Seattle, which went just 37-45 a season ago, entered with a 12-game lead.

DIRK NOWITZKI and Paul Pierce overcame slow starts to return to the NBA All-Star Game, while lengthy runs ended for Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan. Nowitzki was chosen yesterday to his 11th straight All-Star Game, despite his lowest scoring average since his second NBA season. Pierce has come on after a slow start caused by a foot injury and was picked for the 10th time. But Garnett wasn't chosen after 14 consecutive selections, and Duncan was left out after 13 in a row. Other All-Star regulars such as Ray Allen and Amare Stoudemire will be home, giving way to five first-timers: the Sixers' Andre Iguodala, Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge, Marc Gasol of Memphis, Indiana's Roy Hibbert, and Chicago's Luol Deng.

Nate McMillan is leaving the Seattle SuperSonics to coach the Portland Trail Blazers. Late last night, the Blazers hired McMillan, who led the SuperSonics to the Northwest Division title this past season. He will be introduced today at a news conference, the Blazers said in a statement. McMillan's contract with the Sonics expired today, and the Blazers aggressively pursued him. The terms of his contract were not immediately available. McMillan's departure comes a day after Seattle signed All-Star free agent Ray Allen to a 5-year, $85 million contract extension.

A BAND OF unremarkable players, poorly matched and destined for disbandment, wheezed into the NBA playoffs at the end of a freakish season. The injury fairies smiled on them and cursed their opposition. These unremarkable players then beat the best team in their bracket, then nearly upset their division champion. Or . . . A gutty group of kids and veterans with little future together discovered a magical synergy in the final days of a hellish campaign and seized the last playoff berth.

THERE ARE just some things you don't do. As the late singer Jim Croce wrote: You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind and you don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger. Add to that beating the Miami Heat when it comes in on a three-game losing streak. Miami avoided doing something it hasn't done in 3 years, lose four in a row, as it demolished the Sixers, 101-86. If this were a murder, it was premeditated. The Heat was methodical, had a true plan coming in and carried it out with deadly precision.

ZERO. Ofer. Nada. Those are numbers that hung around the neck of Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett after the 76ers' 82-75 series-tying win on Wednesday at the raucous Wells Fargo Center. Garnett scored 20 points and made nine field goals. But none of the points was scored from inside the lane, nor did any of his 20 attempts come from there. It was a concerted effort by the Sixers' defense, orchestrated by coach Doug Collins and associate head coach Michael Curry. The plan was to have the big bodies, Spencer Hawes, Elton Brand and Lavoy Allen, push Garnett off the low blocks as much as possible.

BOSTON - Boston Celtics starting guard Avery Bradley was unavailable for the pivotal Game 5 against the 76ers Monday night due to injuries to both shoulders. Twice in the series, Bradley has had a shoulder pop out of its socket. His place in the starting lineup was taken by Ray Allen, who began the season as the starter but was replaced by Bradley at midseason when Allen sprained an ankle. Celtics coach Doc Rivers liked the defensive presence that Bradley brought to the team this season and kept him in the starting lineup, with Allen coming off the bench to provide offensive spark.

OK, I'M TIRED of all this talk and focus on the growth and development the Sixers have shown during these NBA playoffs. Blah, blah, blah. Yada, yada, yada. Booooooring. Enough, we're harping on something that was a given. They were things that were going to happen by osmosis they moment Andre Iguodala sank those two free throws in Game 6 against the Chicago Bulls to send the Sixers to the second round of the playoffs. The first two games against the Boston Celtics were automatically learning experiences because, except for veteran Elton Brand, no key member of the rotation had ever been out of the first round.
