The moment Matt Barnes jumped, the Dallas Mavericks bench went crazy. Pau Gasol had just launched a corner three-pointer, and Barnes jumped so he could tip in a possible putback. It wasn't needed. Gasol's three-pointer swished into the net and marked one of many clutch plays that led to the Lakers' 112-108 overtime victory Sunday over the Dallas Mavericks.  The play gave the Lakers a 103-101 lead with 3:48 left in overtime, but the Mavericks believe the basket shouldn't have counted.

DALLAS -- Rick Carlisle will be the new coach of the Dallas Mavericks, a decision expected for nearly a week but slowed by contract negotiations. The papers aren't signed yet, but team owner Mark Cuban confirmed in an e-mail Friday night that a deal is in place. The contract "will be signed [Saturday]," with a news conference Wednesday because Cuban will be out of town. Reached late Friday, Carlisle said: "Whatever Mark told you is what's going on.

As expected, the Detroit Pistons announced the hiring of Rick Carlisle as head coach. He replaces George Irvine, who was fired after the Pistons finished the season with a 32-50 record, the league's ninth-worst mark. Carlisle reportedly signed a three-year deal worth between $5 million and $6 million. Carlisle, 41, a former Indiana Pacer assistant, worked as a radio analyst for the Seattle SuperSonics this season.

The Ron Artest vs. Rick Carlisle saga grew more bizarre Monday, with Artest missing the shoot-around, meeting with team officials and then coming up with a mysterious injury. Artest surprised the Indiana Pacers by saying he would sit out Monday's game against Memphis because of a sore back before backtracking and coming off the bench to score 18 points on seven-of-10 shooting in 35 minutes. It all came after Artest was benched for the second half of a loss to New Jersey on Saturday for what Carlisle called "conduct detrimental to winning."

The pressure is mounting with the Eastern Conference finals between Indiana and Detroit tied at two games each. Pacer Coach Rick Carlisle insists the heat is on Detroit because the Pistons made two moves -- firing Carlisle for new Coach Larry Brown and trading for Rasheed Wallace -- in an effort to get to the NBA Finals. "Right now, I don't feel like the pressure is on us at all," Carlisle said after practice on Saturday. "Their season rides on them making it to the next step.

Indiana Pacers Coach Rick Carlisle was fired Wednesday after a season in which the team failed to make the playoffs for the first time in a decade. The Pacers finished 35-47, their worst season since 1988-89. Carlisle, 181-147 in his four seasons, said he understood it was time for the Pacers to hear a "new voice." Team President Larry Bird said anything is possible -- and the new coach might have to adjust.

Not many will give the Detroit Pistons much of a chance against the Lakers. Not after they made only 37.3% of their shots against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals. They won Game 6 on Tuesday night, 69-65, despite making only 32.9% of their shots, ending the lowest-scoring conference final in the shot-clock era. But they're gritty and determined, tall and athletic, and they averaged 9.

Indiana Coach Rick Carlisle ripped Ron Artest and the Pacers after an 82-75 loss to the New Jersey Nets on Saturday at Indianapolis, calling the Pacers an immature team who stole money from the paying customers. "We're young and we're immature," Carlisle said after he was ejected during the game. "And we don't understand what we've got sitting right here in our hands. We're unwilling to reach out and grab it."
