NEW ORLEANS - Dwight Howard's big return to Orlando isn't until next Tuesday, but, sure, let's start the fighting now. Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson took offense to Howard's interview with CBS2/KCAL9 in which he said, "My team in Orlando was a team full of people who nobody wanted, and I was the leader and I led that team with a smile on my face. " No, Howard's teammate in Orlando for eight seasons did not like that one bit. "At some point, when are you gonna, as a man, when are you going to take ownership and stay out of the media in a professional manner?"

So the Lakers want to sign a veteran player who is waived by another team? Baron Davis, Brandon Roy, Rashard Lewis? Not so fast. Details are still emerging from the NBA's yet-to-be-ratified collective bargaining agreement, but the Lakers will have to get in line and bid for players who are cut via the one-time "amnesty" clause. The process is not designed to favor the wealthy, successful teams. It's designed to help teams well below the salary cap. While the Lakers already have a payroll of $91 million for only 11 players, almost half of the NBA's 30 teams will be below the salary cap of $58 million after signing their draft picks and can potentially offer millions more than the Lakers for waived players.

BOSTON -- If he so chooses, Paul Pierce could Tweet some taunts about a sweep and not blame hackers for it this time. The Celtics moved one victory away from fulfilling Pierce's tainted Tweet -- "Anybody got a BROOM?" -- with a dominating 94-71 victory over the Magic on Saturday night at raucous TD BankNorth Garden. It was their sixth consecutive triumph in the NBA playoffs. Game 4 is scheduled for Monday night, which gives the Magic two days to orchestrate a search party and find the missing offense of Dwight Howard and Rashard Lewis.

Times staff writer Barry Stavro breaks down the keys for Orlando to bounce back from Game 1 of the NBA Finals: Orlando needs to get Dwight Howard the ball more quickly in the paint before the Lakers can send their double-teams. L.A. outscored Orlando by 34 points in the paint in the opener. The Magic's guards also need to keep driving to the hoop to set up open shots for Hedo Turkoglu and Rashard Lewis. Look for the Magic to send more double-teams at Kobe Bryant to make him give up the ball.

Tim Duncan had 23 points and 14 rebounds, and Tony Parker had 18 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 96-90 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics on Thursday night. The Spurs beat the SuperSonics for the fifth consecutive time, sending Seattle to its fifth loss in six games. San Antonio, making the second stop on a seven-game trip, has also won four in a row in Seattle. The SuperSonics three times cut a 15-point deficit to four in the final period but could get no closer, their last chance coming when Rashard Lewis failed to convert a three-point play after pulling Seattle within 94-90 with 49 seconds left.

During the Eastern Conference finals it all worked for the Orlando Magic. Good half-court defense produced transition offense that, combined with crisp ball movement, equaled open shots and points. And more times than not in that series, it was forwards Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu who were picking apart Cleveland with their barrage of three-pointers. But in Orlando's Game 1 loss in the NBA Finals, that stream of points was reduced to barely a trickle. Lewis and Turkoglu combined to shoot just five for 21, while as a team the Magic's 29% was the second-lowest field-goal percentage in a Finals game since 1967.
