I'm not going to shoot another one and mess up my percentage. I hit a couple threes in high school, but they don't count. NBA threes are a long way out," he said. Last week after the Grizzlies beat the Nuggets, 94-91, Denver guard Ty Lawson credited Memphis' defense, sort of: "They are a scrappy team. They foul and get away with a lot of stuff.

Los Angeles Unified School District Supt. Ramon C. Cortines said Tuesday that he was taking "appropriate personnel action" against the principal and athletic director of Birmingham High School for allowing comedian Sacha Baron Cohen to use the school's football team in a photo shoot.
