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.

Like his predecessor, Bryan Colangelo is big on chemistry and culture. The 76ers' new president of basketball operations said those ingredients are a must for his team.

Born in Ecuador, Lizardo Ortiz has been a legal permanent resident of the United States since 2008. A welder with the strong hands to show for it, he lives in Downingtown with his wife, Rosa. Ortiz, 61, has been eligible to become an American citizen for the last three years. But only now has he decided to apply. Did the harsh immigration rhetoric of the presidential campaign spur him to act? Was he moved by the hard lines of some GOP candidates, chiefly Donald Trump, who this week said he would block remittances to families in Mexico to pay for his "beautiful" border wall?

DEAR ABBY: My 29-year-old brother died suddenly last month. It was completely unexpected. He left behind a wife and 1-year-old son. Although they lived across the country, she allowed us to bring him home for his funeral and burial. I took care of a lot of the arrangements on this end, while she took care of things there and made travel arrangements. At 26, I never expected to be planning a funeral. But it has made me realize how unprepared I was for any unforeseen event.

Howie Roseman said the Eagles' decision to trade Byron Maxwell, Kiko Alonso, and DeMarco Murray was "about value," which came from improving draft position and opening cap space to allocate elsewhere. In the trade of Maxwell and Alonso to Miami, Roseman's objective was obtaining a top 10 pick. The Eagles moved from No. 13 to No. 8. "We felt there were 10 players that really stood out to us," Roseman said. "Picking 13th, we felt if we were in position to get one of those top 10 guys, there was tremendous value in that.

Swarthmore College, the epicenter of student protest last year over investment in fossil fuels, has budgeted $300,000 as part of an ongoing commitment to improve energy conservation on campus. The college's board of managers, at its meeting last weekend, approved the expenditure as part of a $160 million budget. Swarthmore drew national attention last spring when students staged a 32-day sit-in to try to persuade the board to divest fossil fuels from its endowment portfolio. The board voted last May not to divest any of its $1.9 billion endowment, citing investment guidelines that call for "the endowment to yield the best long-term financial results, rather than to pursue other social objectives.

Marques DeShields broke more than tackles this past football season. He also shattered the perception of the Overbrook High School football program. "When I was in eighth grade, people were telling me I had to go to another school," DeShields said. "When I was a freshman, they were telling me I had to transfer. "I want to prove that a player could go to this school and play in this program and still get recruited at a high level. It feels good to prove those people wrong. " DeShields, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound junior running back who led South Jersey in touchdowns in 2015, picked up an offer from Temple a couple of weeks ago. The offer raised DeShields' profile and worked wonders for the Rams' program as well.

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.
