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.

Here's the message President Obama was promoting on foreign policy in his last State of the Union speech Tuesday: "Don't worry, things are better than you think. " The rhetoric about our enemies getting stronger and America weaker is "political hot air. " The United States "is [still] the most powerful nation on Earth. " His administration is rooting out and destroying ISIS. And, even as we focus on destroying ISIS, we should avoid "over-the-top claims that this is World War III," which will "just play into their hands.

WHEN BRETT BROWN gets a dose of what his professional life in basketball used to be like, he gets a little more philosophical about the game and how it should be played. Brown spent Monday night watching his former team, the San Antonio Spurs, dismantle the visiting Indiana Pacers by 106-92. In the process the Spurs improved to 24-5, including 16-0 at home. It was also the 21st time this season they've won by double figures. The pass is king in Gregg Popovich's offense, where good shots need to become great ones with the extra pass.

Days after a suicidal teen with a fake handgun tried to provoke police outside an township elementary school, Evesham Mayor Randy Brown on Wednesday pressed a recommendation to increase the number of armed police officers in elementary and middle schools. "Considering what has been going on in the world today, the best line of defense is having an armed officer in every school," Brown said. Three armed officers now patrol the township's seven elementary and two middle schools on a rotating basis, though none was present at Van Zant Elementary School during Monday's incident.

For Brett Brown, negotiating a contract extension with the 76ers was the good news. The bad news was the coach's squad suffered its fourth-worst loss in franchise history hours after the negotiations were revealed.

Monday's loss dropped Brown's squad to 1-21 on the season. It was also their 10th straight series setback to San Antonio (18-4)

A depiction of the Second Coming of Jesus could help revive a little church in North Camden. The faded, water-damaged, but still-grand canvas bears the name of H. Willard Ortlip, who left Philadelphia society portraiture behind to become an international street preacher - and a painter of sacred subjects on a grand scale. At the former Wesleyan Methodist church, now Mount Carmel Holy Church, the simple, well-kept sanctuary is dominated by a majestic painting of Jesus descending from the heavens.

Two of the biggest players in the sports-TV business, Comcast Corp. and 21st Century Fox, are duking it out over Yankees games. Comcast dropped Fox's YES Network, which televises the Yankees to more than 900,000 homes in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut, at midnight Tuesday, contending that the network was seeking a 33 percent hike in its monthly carriage fees. The company said Yankees fan viewership couldn't justify the additional costs. YES Network - whose officials said they were stunned by Comcast's action after months of negotiations - rejected Wednesday the idea that costs were the negotiating stumbling block, saying that other cable operators with more subscribers in the New York market agreed with the price.

SAN ANTONIO - Gregg Popovich called close friend and former assistant Brett Brown the most positive person he knows. Then the San Antonio Spurs coach admitted that he couldn't hold Brown's job as the 76ers coach. "I'd last about a month," Popovich said. "And he, honest to God, loves coaching that team. " Leading a franchise for a third consecutive tanking season has indeed been a tough task for Brown. Hours after Popovich's comments, the undermanned Spurs held off the Sixers, 92-83, Saturday night at the AT&T Center.

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.
