Dennis Rodman stood up the Spurs again, but has been spotted in San Antonio - with bright green hair. The team's hopes that the truant forward would show for last night's game with Utah were dashed when Rodman didn't contact the team during the day and missed a shootaround, then later missed the Spurs' 117-114 double-overtime loss to the visiting Jazz. Rodman was discovered later, with his new hair color, at a San Antonio health club, where he said he would attend a meeting today with Spurs management.

Center David Robinson will be in the San Antonio lineup for the first time this season when the Spurs play the Phoenix Suns tonight. Robinson left an Oct. 11 exhibition game because of back pain and missed San Antonio's first 18 games. The Spurs have started the season 3-15 without him. Robinson was cleared to play yesterday. Also, Dallas activated forward Jamal Mashburn, who had missed eight games because of a broken right cheekbone. ROCKETS: BARKLEY HURTING Houston forward Charles Barkley missed a workout with a foot injury, but he expects to play tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

New York Knicks coach Don Chaney knew his team had to keep San Antonio's Tim Duncan out of the paint if it was going to have a chance to win. That single focus, however, came with some dangers. "You've got to get it out of Duncan's hands, but that opens up their perimeter game with great shooters," Chaney said. Duncan, who had only seven points in the first half, sank four free throws in the closing minutes as the host Spurs held off the late-charging Knicks, 90-79. He finished the game with 21 points, eight of them in the fourth quarter, when San Antonio nearly squandered a 13-point lead.

Triple-doubles are no big deal to David Robinson, who leads the NBA with five this season. Quadruple-doubles, though, are something special. "I've been close a number of times, so this is something I wanted to do," Robinson said after getting the fourth quadruple-double recorded in NBA history last night with 34 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 blocked shots in San Antonio's 115-96 victory over the visiting Detroit Pistons. "I'm excited because it's one thing you never know if you're going to get," he said.

Tim Duncan scored seven of his 21 points in a 20-point San Antonio spurt to start the second quarter and the visiting Spurs took advantage of the absence of All-Star guard Jason Kidd to beat the New Jersey Nets, 107-82, last night. Tony Parker added 19 points and Manu Ginobili had 14 as the Spurs avoided tying their season-high three-game losing streak with their third win in eight games. Vince Carter had 18 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Nets, who also were without two other starters who have been sidelined for a while - Nenad Krstic and Richard Jefferson.

No Tim Duncan, no problem. With Duncan on the bench in foul trouble, San Antonio steamrolled host Portland with a 16-0 third-quarter run last night on the way to an 85-63 rout that puts the Spurs one win from a sweep in the Western Conference finals. "Well, 3-0 is better than 2-0, and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, but it still doesn't put us anywhere," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. Portland's 63 points was its fewest ever in the playoffs, and the second-lowest total in NBA playoff history.

San Antonio's Tim Duncan scored 32 points, and the Spurs began the game going 24-for-24 from the free-throw line, en route to a 119-106 win over the visiting Mavericks in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals last night. Dallas was called for six technical fouls, and both head coach Don Nelson and assistant Del Harris were tossed before halftime. The series is even, with Game 3 set for tomorrow at Dallas. Michael Finley led the Mavericks with 29 points and Dirk Nowitzki had 23. Noteworthy LeBron James, the high school phenom from Akron, Ohio, will make tonight's NBA draft lottery almost as important as a playoff game.

What a difference two days and a change of scenery can make. San Antonio, which was routed in Phoenix by 26 points on Saturday, turned the tables on the Suns with a 94-77 victory last night as Tim Duncan scored 26 points to lead the Spurs. "Tonight the defense was consistent both halves," said San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich. "We stayed in front of them, contested shots and cut off their penetration. None of the above happened the last time we played them. " San Antonio, which has won 19 of its last 22 games, also received a season-high 20 points from Avery Johnson.

Twice this month, gun proponents took to Nottingham Road in West Deptford to protest outside State Senate President Stephen Sweeney's home. The protesters wielded signs, some bearing the face of a South Jersey woman killed this month, as they asserted that Sweeney, a Democrat, was to blame for tight gun restrictions in the state. But that type of demonstration would be prohibited in West Deptford if an ordinance introduced Wednesday night by the township committee gains final approval.

Coach Gregg Popovich says he believes Duncan will come back for another season, and that might be true, but it has become a popular theme among the national media to cover the Spurs during this postseason in the same way the Italian press chronicled the advance on Rome by the...

Joni Mitchell's health crisis - the Canadian songwriter was found unconscious March 31 in her Los Angeles home and rushed to the hospital - put a scare into legions of fans. Many can't get that line, "You don't know what you've got till it's gone" - from "Big Yellow Taxi" - out of their heads. Mitchell, 71, hasn't released a new album since 2007's Shine . Even ardent followers who scooped up last year's high-concept, self-curated box set, Love Has Many Faces: A Quartet, A Ballet, Waiting to Be Danced , or celebrated a victory against ageism when she was featured in an Yves Saint Laurent ad campaign, would admit her greatest work was decades behind her. But then, as now, you don't have to go very far in the singer-songwriter universe to encounter the presence of Mitchell, who "continues to improve" and "is resting comfortably" in an L.A. hospital, according to her website.

For Marjie Versagli, owner of Malvern Flowers & Gifts, this used to be peak season - prom corsages, Mother's Day bouquets. But that's changed. Now, she's busier year-round. About 20 miles away, the Lower Merion School District is in a building frenzy, adding a dozen classrooms and repurposing gymnasiums and other spaces to accommodate its largest enrollment increase in nearly 40 years. The blooming flower business and the Lower Merion crowding are symptomatic of the region's shifting demographics.

The head of the Philadelphia teachers' union wants to let his membership go through the piles of discarded books warehoused in school buildings and distribute them to needy classrooms. The School Reform Commission's former chair concedes that "frankly, it was not as thought out as it should have been as far as inventory when [they] went into the basement" of district headquarters. And the School District spokesman says principals were invited to drop by and pick up any materials they needed, but "not a lot of principals showed up. " This was the range of reactions to a column in Wednesday's Inquirer that described a full city block of books and supplies cast off by the cash-poor school system.

They were just kids, Haddon Township High School friends in the springtime of their lives. Boys and girls hanging out in houses, driving Jersey roads, pulling pranks. Laughing. But in July 2006, the laughter was cut short. One of the friends, 16-year-old junior and field hockey player Ann Marie Lynch, died in a jet ski accident off Ocean City. "That was my first experience with mortality," said Tom Turcich, one of the pack, now 25. For months, he walked around in a fog of grief. Until one day in class, he saw the movie Dead Poets Society and had his own carpe diem moment.

When she thinks about how far she has come, Taylor McGlashan goes back to tryouts for last year's Cherokee girls' basketball team. "I was Coach T," McGlashan said. "I was an assistant coach helping out at that point. That was all I could do. " It was just a few months after a knee injury sidelined McGlashan for her junior season and derailed a promising career. In a summer league game against Lenape, the 6-foot-1 forward slipped on sweat while driving to the basket. She tore the anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and meniscus in her right knee.

Seldom does fouling out of a basketball game earn you a standing ovation. When it does happen, it can have the feel of a curtain call: a senior serenaded in his last game - usually in defeat - by an appreciative yet melancholy faithful. However, when Manny Taylor exited the Catholic League semifinals Wednesday night at the Palestra after fouling out, the chorus he heard was anything but sad. "It's just a blue-collar city," head coach Chris McNesby said. "I think all these people just appreciate effort.

THE CITY moved at least 41 homeless people away from exposure to harsh weather from Sunday through yesterday, and more were expected to be relocated by today, authorities said. The Office of Supportive Housing assigned extra outreach teams to bring people in from the extreme cold. They were relocated either to shelters or to places they chose. Roberta Cancellier, the office's deputy director, said some stayed in "overnight cafes," where they got "coffee, soup and just a warm place to be. " One such "cafe" on Broad Street near Pine in Center City, which normally hosts up to 75 people, had 91 on Sunday night into yesterday - 64 men and 27 women, she said.
