Coach John Lucas said yesterday before the 76ers game with the Los Angeles Lakers that he is not contemplating making changes in his coaching staff. There had been speculation that Lucas, whose team was an abysmal 5-22 going into last night's game, might pull the trigger after the current six-game road trip and fire Ron Adams and Tom Thibodeau. Both came with Lucas to Philadelphia two seasons ago from the San Antonio Spurs and are working in the last year of their contract. "When you're going like we're going, you hear all kinds of things," Lucas said.

Right now, the 76ers and Sacramento Kings have more in common than the NBA's only head coaching vacancies. The two franchises are also overlapping on candidates for those vacancies, pursuing three of the same ones and making it seem possible - if not quite likely - that the two teams could target the same coach. Last week, the Sixers and Kings both met with Eddie Jordan, 54, the former Washington Wizards head coach. This week, Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski interviewed Los Angeles Lakers assistant Kurt Rambis and Dallas Mavericks assistant Dwane Casey, and confirmed that he would interview Boston Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau.

DEERFIELD, Ill. - Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says center Joakim Noah is a "game-time decision" for Tuesday's playoff game against the 76ers because of a sprained left ankle. The Bulls trail 3-1 in this first-round series and are trying to avoid becoming just the fifth top seed to lose to an eighth seed. They will almost certainly again be without Noah, who was injured in Game 3 and sat out Game 4. Thibodeau had said Monday that Noah was "most likely out" for Game 5 but changed his stance slightly at the morning shootaround on Tuesday, saying, "Maybe he gets better from now until tonight.

K.C. Jones says he was "knocked out" by his meeting last week with 76ers coach Johnny Davis. But not enough to stop him from accepting a job as an assistant coach with the Boston Celtics. "It was a tough one," said Jones, who coached the Celtics to NBA championships in 1983-84 and and 1985-86. "It was close. [Davis] is one of the brightest basketball people I have met at any level. " Davis, John Lucas's successor as the Sixers coach, is putting together a staff. Ron Adams and Tom Thibodeau were not retained as assistants.

The 76ers confirmed they met yesterday with Boston Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau about their head coaching vacancy, bringing the number of interviewed candidates to four. The Sixers would not comment further on the interview, and Thibodeau could not be reached for comment. The Sixers called the Celtics for permission last weekend. Thibodeau joins former Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan, current Los Angeles Lakers assistant Kurt Rambis, and Dallas assistant Dwane Casey as the four known candidates on the list of Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski.

Injured Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose is "not quite" ready to return from his knee injury, coach Tom Thibodeau said Friday. The 2011 NBA MVP continues to practice without restrictions, but his return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee remains up in the air. "He's been cleared to do everything there is," Thibodeau said before the Bulls hosted the Utah Jazz at the United Center. "Before he makes the final step, everyone has to get together and sign off. That hasn't happened yet. The most important part of this is that we have to trust Derrick, and I trust him. " ESPNChicago.com reported Friday that Rose's doctor has cleared him to play, but he has told the team he won't until he can dunk with confidence off his left foot.

Rondo had season highs in points and assists as the Celts moved 31/2 games behind the 76ers in the Atlantic Division. C.J. Watson, who started in Rose's spot, scored 22 points. Rose was out with what coach Tom Thibodeau called "stiffness" in his back and will see a specialist when the team gets back to Chicago.

The 76ers said yesterday that they plan to interview Boston Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau for their head coaching vacancy. The Sixers would not say when Thibodeau would be interviewed. General manager Ed Stefanski declined to comment about what will be the team's second interview since last Monday, when Tony DiLeo withdrew his name from consideration to continue as the team's coach. Stefanski interviewed former Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan on Friday. A source close to Jordan said the coach left the interview with the impression that Stefanski's search would be "a process.

Tony DiLeo is going to work for his fourth 76ers coach in four seasons. "I've been an assistant coach, I've been in player personnel, I've been in scouting and now I'm back in scouting," DiLeo was saying yesterday, after being officially named the team's director of scouting. After working for Jim Lynam, Doug Moe and Fred Carter, he has been retained by new coach John Lucas in a role that has not yet been totally defined, but that is expected to include scouting, video work and some teaching.

DURING THE Sam Hinkie and Brett Brown era, the Sixers' most known quality outside of all of the losses they have piled up is their lightning-quick pace. Based on offensive possessions per game, the Sixers played at the league's seventh-fastest pace this past season and the fastest in the entire NBA in 2013-14. That heightened pace leads to more possessions each game for the Sixers and their opponents, leading to inflated points-per-game totals. To see through the noise and discrepancies that causes, it's best to look at team performance through offensive and defensive rating, which illustrate how many points a team scores or surrenders per 100 possessions.

AS EXPECTED, at least by the 76ers organization, Joel Embiid's visit to the doctor who performed his foot surgery in June brought nothing but good news. The fear was that something was amiss, since Embiid was wearing a walking boot before heading out west. There was also the infamous slam dunk in warmups on Friday, when Embiid went between his legs before throwing down the slam. Many thought that is what primarily led to the booting. Embiid was back last night and went through his normal workout on the floor with coach Brett Brown and appeared to be fine.

NATE ROBINSON scored a season-high 35 points and the Chicago Bulls stopped another lengthy winning streak, rallying to beat New York, 118-111, in overtime Thursday and end the Knicks' 13-game run. Robinson came up big down the stretch, scoring eight points in the extra period. Jimmy Butler added 22 points, Luol Deng scored 16, and the Bulls busted a long streak for the second time in about a 2-week span, ending the Miami Heat's 27-game run - the second-longest in NBA history - on March 27. Carmelo Anthony made two free throws with 14 seconds left to tie the game and force overtime, but things unraveled for the Knicks in the extra session, when they were outscored, 13-6.
