Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert has been fined $75,000 by the NBA for using a gay slur during his postgame news conference Saturday night. Hibbert responded "no homo" to a question after the Pacers' 91-77 victory over the Miami Heat forced a deciding Game 7 in the Eastern Conference finals. The 7-foot-2 center apologized for the remark in a statement issued by the team Sunday. “While Roy has issued an apology, which is no doubt sincere, a fine is necessary to reinforce that such offensive comments will not be tolerated by the NBA,” Commissioner David Stern said in a statement.

MIAMI - It was only five days ago that Miami Heat center Chris Bosh said he was done discussing anything related to the player he matched up against in the Eastern Conference finals. No more would Bosh answer any more questions about Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert. But with the series tied 2-2 entering Thursday's Game 5, Bosh has been left with no choice. All the talk centers on how Hibbert has dominated the Heat, especially on offense. He is averaging 22.7 points and 12 rebounds and hardly resembling the player known more for defense.

INDIANA AT CLIPPERS When: 12:30 p.m. Sunday. TV: Prime Ticket. Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has said he wants to go for it. Pacers center Roy Hibbert has tweeted a similar desire. An NBA title? Well, of course they would like that, but the big men have also expressed a strong yearning to win the league's defensive-player-of-the-year award. Hibbert ranks second in the league with 3.8 blocked shots per game and Jordan is fifth with 2.3. It probably also helps Hibbert's cause that the Pacers are holding opponents to a league-low 85.6 points a game and have yielded 100 points only once, to the Chicago Bulls.

  You have to figure that German goalie Marc-Andre ter Stegen is looking for a large rock to live under in the wake of Sunday's embarrassing own goal against the U.S. in a friendly played in Washington. It's one thing for a defender to accidentally slam the ball into his own net, but to let a simple back pass get by you? Not good. As you can see in the video above, Ter Stegen seemed to not know what to do when the ball was sent to him, hesitating then almost avoiding the ball entirely.

The Indiana Pacers, who took the two-time reigning NBA champion Miami Heat to seven games in the Eastern Conference finals last spring, are fortifying their front line by trading for versatile and durable big man Luis Scola of the Phoenix Suns. Scola, a 6-foot-9 power forward, would be added to a lineup that includes a budding star in 7-2 center Roy Hibbert and a former All-Star in 6-9 power forward David West. [ Update, 12:35 p.m. : The Pacers are sending 6-8 guard-forward Gerald Green, 6-11 forward Miles Plumlee and a conditional 2014 first-round draft pick to Phoenix for Scola, a sixth-year player from Argentina who has appeared in 82 games in four seasons and all 66 in a lockout-shortened season.]

A kid with a crayon (or a rookie ESPN analyst who once tossed a chair across the floor) could fill out this bracket. On one side Kansas knocks Portland State port-side in the first round in Omaha, then strips Las Vegas in Round 2. Then, for the Jayhawks, it's off to the Motor City, where there's a fender bender against Clemson, which loses and then turns all attention to spring football. On the other side, No. 2 Georgetown works its way by working through the United States Marine Corps (USMC)

The evolution of Clippers center DeAndre Jordan is ongoing - and whatever the final result is, the responsibility is in his hands. Even Jordan recognizes that. "Do any other basketball players stop growing as a person and as a player when they're 24?" Jordan asked. "So, yes, I'm still growing and evolving - as a player and as a young man. " As the starting center for the Clippers, there are high expectations for Jordan to be productive and mature on the court. And that has been a constant battle.

Part of what makes Roy Hibbert a good basketball player -- who's getting better by the day -- is the realization that, at any moment, something awful might happen. "You never know," he said. It is a coach's adage -- play every game as if it were your last -- but it means something more to the Georgetown center. This afternoon, he will lead the Hoyas against North Carolina in the East Regional final with a Final Four spot on the line.
