    Simmons scores 31 points, 76ers beat Nets without Embiid

    NEW YORK -  Joel Embiid took off his warmup gear and changed into street clothes, his left knee feeling too sore to play. Even with the All-Star center sitting down, the Philadelphia 76ers were flying high in Game 3. Ben Simmons scored a career playoff-high 31 points, Tobias Harris added 29 points and 16 rebounds and the 76ers shook off the absence of their leading scorer to beat the Brooklyn Nets 131-115 on Thursday night for a 2-1 lead in the first-round series. The 76ers relied on Simmons slashing to the basket, and Harris and JJ Redick shooting from the perimeter. "We have the pieces to get games, to complete games and I think everybody in the organization knows that," Simmons said. Simmons

    On night to remember, White creates familiar buzz

    The AT&T Center tends to get a bit sleepy at times. After witnessing the championship-winning exploits of one Hall of Famer after another, the thousands who fill it aren't apt to go quite as crazy about a run-of-the-mill first-round playoff game as the celebration-starved newbies in Denver do. But the old tin barn on East Houston Street still shakes for greatness. There is something unmistakable about the building's buzz for a special player on a special night, and it reverberates from the first row to the crevices in the rafters where the bats sleep. Tim Duncan invented that buzz. Manu Ginobili perfected it, generating an echo of cheers and gasps that on many nights became his life force. Tony

    Guard play likely to decide Game 4 between Spurs, Nuggets

    The first three games of the Western Conference first-round playoff series between second-seeded Denver and seventh-seeded San Antonio have boiled down to which team received better play from its backcourt. The Spurs grabbed a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series with a 118-108 home win on Thursday as two pieces of its three-guard attack -- second-year pro Derrick White and veteran DeMar DeRozan -- combined for 61 points. The Nuggets now have lost 14 straight games in San Antonio, a streak that began on March 4, 2012, when White was a 17-year-old senior at Legend High School in Parker, Colo., about 25 miles southeast of Denver.

    Key for Spurs: Gay's atomic leap

    Inside the e-reader application on Rudy Gay's smart phone, there is a collection of books he's finished, and a few he never will. Gay seeks out a diverse variety of self-improvement titles, always looking for a subtle trick or a new perspective, but if an author doesn't grab him within the first few dozen pages, he moves on. The Spurs forward has no time, he says, for any more nonsense than necessary. Gay's latest reading assignment, one he's enjoying, is a tome called “Atomic Habits” by James Clear. The gist of the message is about making incremental progress, or, to quote the summary on Clear's website, “how to create good habits, break bad ones, and get 1 percent better every day.” After the
