Al Thornton was hovering near the officials and the courtside replay monitor, but his mind was already far way, in Texas. Some of his Clippers teammates were not even on the court; they were back in the locker room. Game over, they were thinking. But more than a mere flicker of hope hit Baron Davis when they showed the first replay of the 76ers' Andre Iguodala's contested jump shot at the end of regulation. And when they quit showing replays at Wachovia Center on Saturday night, that's when Davis knew overtime was looming.

As poorly as they were playing, the Philadelphia 76ers knew they still had time to catch the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. Thanks mostly to Andre Iguodala, they did. Iguodala made a baseline jump shot with 36 seconds left and finished with 20 points to help the 76ers overcome a late 14-point deficit in a 95-93 victory over the Rockets. "We just keep going till the clock says zero," Iguodala said.

Phil Jackson tried to warn his players. He brought it up in team meetings, sent messages through the media, did everything but shoot off a flare gun in the Lakers' locker room. But the players didn't think they lacked a killer instinct. They had a chance to prove otherwise against the Philadelphia 76ers, but the verdict wasn't favorable when it was unsealed Tuesday at Staples Center. The Lakers hemmed and hawed against a barely-.500 team before finally falling to the 76ers in a 94-93 loss.

Which was better - the original 1992 Dream Team or the current 2012 model? It can be argued, but c'mon? The 1992 Dream Team! Look, when you can mention a player by his first name or nickname and know who he is and what he has accomplished, that's saying something. And the 1992 U.S. men's basketball team had that - Michael, Magic, Larry, Charles, The Mailman, Scottie, Mully, Patrick, Clyde the Glide, The Admiral. The Dream Team of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Scottie Pippen, Chris Mullin, Patrick Ewing, Clyde Drexler, David Robinson, John Stockton and Christian Laettner set the standards by which all teams can only hope to be measured by. Eleven of them are in the Hall of Fame, they won 23 NBA championships, and 10 members of that group were named in 1996 to be among the 50 greatest players in NBA history.
