  Clippers Coach Doc Rivers couldn't complain about his team's effort Wednesday night, not when he had Blake Griffin, Jamal Crawford, DeAndre Jordan, Darren Collison and Matt Barnes all playing 37 or more grueling minutes. Rivers didn't like that his team turned the ball over 20 times and that the Clippers' defense came and went at times, leaving him to live with Los Angeles' 116-112 defeat to the Miami Heat at Staples Center. Rivers' team was down by as many as 19 points in the second quarter and by 17 in the third but made a game of it by getting to within two points late before losing.

Ray Allen will sign with the Heat, according to a tweet from Miami owner Micky Arison. “It's 2:30 a.m. in London and I was just woken up with great news. Welcome to the family -- No. 20,” said Arison via Twitter on Friday night. Confirming an agreement between Allen and the Heat on a mini mid-level contract worth $3 million for next season were CBSSports.com, Associated Press, Yahoo! and SI.com. The contract can't be signed until Wednesday when an NBA business moratorium is lifted.

We all know that Ray Allen still has game. But does Jesus Shuttlesworth? Allen, who currently plays for the Miami Heat and starred in the 1998 movie "He Got Game" as Shuttlesworth, said he and filmmaker Spike Lee have been in talks over the last couple of months about a potential sequel.  "Sequels to most movies are always fluff and not as good as the first," Allen said Tuesday before playing the New Orleans Pelicans. "But it's something we've been talking about for the last couple months.

A test of Celtics pride It's enough to make Ray Allen wonder whether he's got any game left. The veteran Boston Celtics sharpshooter recently lost his starting spot to Avery Bradley and then had to deal with the public disclosure of a failed trade involving Memphis guard O.J. Mayo . Allen was nearly sent to the Grizzlies last month in exchange for Mayo and a draft pick, though Celtics Coach Doc Rivers refuted one...

Ray Allen reached the Mt. Everest of NBA Finals three-point shooting in Game 2, breaking the record by hitting eight of them. Since then, he has fallen off that mountain, landed in some crevice thousands of feet below and frozen into a faint figure of his former self. Or, in other words, he has missed 18 consecutive shots from beyond the arc, a total that grew by four after Sunday's 92-86 Celtics win in Game 5, which gives them a 3-2 lead in the series. "You know, it's probably somewhat of a curse that I had the Game 2 that I had, because it's like every time I get behind that line … I'm feeling rushed a lot," Allen said, crediting the Lakers' defense.

It was a busy day for the Clippers, and it left the organization hopeful. The Clippers began Tuesday by welcoming free-agent guard Jamal Crawford to the team's facility for a visit. The team then scheduled a visit by free-agent guard Ray Allen for Friday, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The team hasn't yet agreed to a sign-and-trade deal that would send Reggie Evans to the Brooklyn Nets for a future second-round draft pick, the executives said, but it's still being considered.

MIAMI -  Tim Duncan was five seconds away from his fifth NBA championship. It's also how close LeBron James came to a rapidly trampled legacy. But Ray Allen, the oldest player on the court and a month from his 38th birthday, assisted the 28-year-old James by forcing overtime with a tying three-pointer late in regulation, as the Miami Heat eventually overtook the San Antonio Spurs, 103-100, Tuesday night in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Allen was also a factor in overtime, poking the ball free from Manu Ginobili with 1.9 seconds left and making two free throws at the other end to give the Heat a final three-point cushion at American Airlines Arena.

Ray Allen doesn't look like a movie star. Comfortable in baggy black jeans, a rumpled white V-neck T-shirt and white athletic socks on shoeless feet, he barely resembles an NBA millionaire, either. But director Spike Lee didn't want a star to play Jesus Shuttlesworth, America's No. 1 high school recruit, in the new movie "He Got Game." He sought a talented basketball player who looked young enough to portray an 18-year-old, and Allen, the Milwaukee Bucks' second-year guard, fit the bill.

Brad Stevens, who built tiny Butler University into an NCAA powerhouse, will try to guide a rebuilding project with the Boston Celtics and point guard Rajon Rondo, the veteran leader whom Stevens must now decide whether he will build around. Of course, Stevens will try to accomplish something at which most college coaches fail: become a success in the NBA. The Celtics already know, having watched current NCAA champion Rick Pitino of Louisville spin his wheels in the pro ranks to a record of 102-146 in four seasons.

Kobe Bryant has the greatest net worth in the NBA, according to  Wealth-X.com , a wealth intelligence firm. Bryant's total net worth is estimated at $220 million, bolstered by endorsement deals with "Nike, Coca-Cola, Turkish Airlines, Mercedes-Benz, Lenovo, Panini and Hublot," the website said Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics (until he's dealt next week to the Brooklyn Nets) came in second, with a net worth of $190 million. Garnett was drafted in 1995, Bryant in 1996.

1. This game should be shown on a continual loop on ESPN Classic until the tip-off of Game 7. There were enough signature moments in Miami's 103-100 overtime victory over San Antonio in Game 6 of the NBA Finals to fill not just a series, but a season. There was the yellow courtside rope that shouldn't have been there. The missing LeBron James headband that should have been. Ray Allen's corner three-pointer in the final seconds of regulation that capped a madcap rally from five points down with 21 seconds left.

INDIANAPOLIS - The reality is that this is what the Indiana Pacers do. They run three-point shooters off the three-point line or make them take attempts under duress. And it's not just in the playoffs. For Miami Heat three-point specialists Ray Allen and Shane Battier, their struggles in these NBA Eastern Conference finals are nothing new against the Pacers, who host Game 3 on Sunday evening at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. At one for six on three-pointers in this series, Allen is now two for 15 this season on three-pointers against the Pacers, when factoring in the teams' three regular-season meetings.

Every game, someone different steps up for the Miami Heat. Well, someone different and LeBron James. Ageless Ray Allen scored 23 points, setting the NBA career playoff record for three-pointers in the process, and James had seven of his 22 points during a decisive run that closed out the third quarter — and maybe the Milwaukee Bucks. The Heat's 104-91 victory Thursday night at Milwaukee gave the defending champions a 3-0 lead, with a chance to complete the sweep Sunday afternoon at the Bradley Center.
