ORLANDO - With about 71/2 minutes to play in the third quarter, Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson casually drove the lane and lofted a nifty lob pass to center Daniel Orton, who deposited an easy layup with nary a 76ers defender in sight. After the ball went through the basket, Sixers coach Doug Collins looked at assistant head coach Michael Curry and asked, "What do we do, Coach?" It was that perplexing of a night. Before the game, Collins had talked about his team's need to negate the three-point shooting of the Magic, particularly Ryan Anderson.

THE NBA-worst Washington Wizards fired coach Flip Saunders yesterday after a 2-15 start and replaced him with assistant Randy Wittman.

ORLANDO - One of the main reasons for the 76ers' early success was the matchup problem they posed to opponents. But times have been rough of late, and winning games hasn't been the easy task it used to be. So to have a better shot at winning, coach Doug Collins is now matching his team against the opponent. At least he did for Monday's game against the Orlando Magic. Shorthanded because of injuries to starting center Dwight Howard (back) and his backup, Glen Davis (sprained knee)

Artest the Laker New acquisition Ron Artest seemed to struggle with the Lakers' triangle offense through the first four games, but he had a breakthrough of sorts Tuesday in a 101-98 overtime win in Oklahoma City. Artest had 20 points on 6-for-8 shooting and added six assists. He entered the night averaging 8.3 points per game. "He's finding his way," coach Phil Jackson said. "The rhythm of the offense and finding his shots are still a mystery to him. "A guy like Dennis Rodman used to [fit into the offense]

Posing as an al-Qaeda operative with cash and a desire to destroy America, a former cheerleader who grew up on a Montana wheat farm helped orchestrate a sting that nabbed an alleged terrorist. Shannen Rossmiller, a 36-year-old municipal judge from Conrad, Mont., manipulated Michael Curtis Reynolds of Wilkes-Barre into thinking she was a radical Islamist eager to underwrite his plan to blow up American oil and gas pipelines. Reeling in Reynolds during six weeks of e-mail exchanges, Rossmiller's male cyber persona finally persuaded Reynolds to travel to a lonely stretch of Idaho highway to pick up a bag containing $40,000.

Goal-line technology may be used in major soccer competitions as soon as December after the sport's rule-making body sanctioned its introduction on Sunday following high- profile errors at the 2010 World Cup and the recent European Championship. The International Football Association Board unanimously approved allowing the Hawk-Eye and GoalRef systems, which use technology to tell whether the ball has crossed the goal line. The systems will aid officials, who will still base their rulings on what they see on the field.

Here come Jrue Holiday and the New Orleans Pelicans. That might not be a good thing for the 76ers based on the teams' Nov. 16 meeting at the New Orleans Arena. Back then, the Pelicans rolled to a 135-98 victory to hand the Sixers their worst loss of the season. "They did just whatever they wanted to do," power forward Thaddeus Young said after the game. This time, Holiday could have an emotional return in the matchup at 8 p.m. Friday at the Wells Fargo Center. The game will mark his first return to Philadelphia since the Sixers (6-10)

The 76ers might decide to host a party sometime soon. They most certainly celebrated beating the New Orleans Pelicans, 107-93, to earn their 10th win of the season Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. That saved them from having anything to do with two of the worst records in NBA history. Carl Landry had a huge hand in the victory, scoring 22 points on 9-for-10 shooting off the bench. With just four games to play, he and the Sixers can look in their rearview mirrors and see the 1972-73 Sixers, who remain the worst NBA team ever at 9-73.

THE MAGIC had to beat the best to overcome the sting of losing to the worst. Dwight Howard had 29 points and 18 rebounds to lead Orlando to a 99-94 win over the visiting Bulls last night, snapping Chicago's eight-game winning streak. The Magic bounced back from a 100-84 loss at Charlotte, beating the Bulls two nights after losing to the Bobcats, who sport a league-worst 5-32 record. Despite the loss, Chicago's 33-9 mark is tops in the Eastern Conference. "We stepped up tonight and everybody played great," Howard said.

NEW ORLEANS - This game was over shortly after it started. The New Orleans Pelicans' superior talent and depth were obvious in the early stages. And while the 76ers played with their trademark grit, they could do nothing to stop the domination. In the end, the Pelicans coasted to a 135-98 victory Saturday night at the New Orleans Arena. "They did just whatever they wanted to do tonight," said Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young, whose squad (5-6) lost for the sixth time in its last eight games.

IT'S NOT A LeBron James winning streak. It's a Miami Heat winning streak. If there was any confusion on that point, the reigning NBA champions might have cleared that up Sunday night. Mario Chalmers scored 26 points, Chris Bosh added 24 and the Heat won their 18th straight game, easily topping the visiting Indiana Pacers, 105-91 - even with James scoring only a season-low 13, yet clearly helping control play with seven assists and six rebounds. "That's the thing about our team," Chalmers said.

Everything was in place for the 76ers to put two wins together for the first time in almost six weeks. They had an opponent that was dead last in its division, ranked 28th in the league in scoring, and the recipient of a beating by the Sixers earlier in the season. But that Nov. 7 loss seemed years away for the New Orleans Hornets Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Another lifeless and often-booed performance by the Sixers resulted in their sixth loss in seven games. The Hornets defeated them handily, 111-99.

Raymond Felton and J.R. Smith each added 15 points. Felton scored all of his points on five three-pointers as New York hit 14 treys as a team. Tyson Chandler grabbed 12 rebounds for the Knicks, who've won two straight since their first loss of the season and are 8-1 for only the third time in franchise history.

IT'S IMPORTANT for me to begin my column for the Daily News by establishing what I'm not. I'm not a chef. I'm not a culinary school graduate. I'm not an expert. I'm not a connoisseur. And please don't call me a "foodie," that cheese-ball catchall slapped on anyone who expresses even the slightest interest in where their eggs come from. I'm just very curious and very hungry. Which is how I first got to know Brian Dwyer, who's on the verge of opening a new kind of pizzeria for Philadelphia.
