SCOREBOARD Monday, Jan. 21

Cleveland at Miami (8 p.m. EST). The Heat have lost 13 straight games.

STAR Sunday

-Amare Stoudemire, Suns, had 28 points to lead Phoenix past New Jersey 116-92.


Atlanta Hawks starting point guard Anthony Johnson was suspended for Monday's game against Portland without pay for committing a flagrant foul against Toronto's Jose Calderon. Johnson, 33, is averaging 6.3 points and 4.9 assists. The suspension leaves rookie Acie Law and Tyronn Lue to share time at point guard against Portland. The two have combined for eight starts this season.


Phoenix made it 14 in a row at home over New Jersey by routing the Nets 116-92 on Sunday night. New Jersey hasn't won in Phoenix since March 13, 1993.


''Basically they were able to go where they wanted to go. Seventeen offensive rebounds, they shot 41 percent from 3, took us off the dribble, and then we ran out of points. It's hard to overcome 116.'' - New Jersey coach Lawrence Frank after Phoenix beat the Nets 116-92 on Sunday.

Oregon State fires Jay John
January 21, 2008

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -Oregon State fired basketball coach Jay John, whose team is 6-12 this season and winless in the Pac-10. Attendance is reaching record lows at Gill Coliseum and the school has had only one winning season since 1989-90.
Assistant Kevin Mouton will temporarily run the team after the rare midseason coaching change, which was announced Sunday night by athletic director Bob De Carolis. De Carolis did not rule out Mouton as a permanent replacement.

John, in his sixth season, received a five-year contract extension in 2005. Oregon State owes him about $1.1 million.

``Sometimes things just don't work out and that's the case here,'' De Carolis said. ``We needed to move on. I think the weight of some of the speculation of whether it was going to happen, when it was going to happen, started weighing heavily on John and his family.''

John did not have a chance to meet with the team Sunday night. He had a record of 72-97 and a conference mark of 26-68, including 0-6 this season. The Beavers, however, showed some grit in nearly upsetting Washington on Saturday.

De Carolis said he discussed the team's performance with John after last season when the Beavers finished 11-21 and 3-15 in the Pac-10.

``I always like to look at the total body of work,'' the athletic director said. ``And I really just didn't see where it was going.''

John came to Oregon State in 2002 after four seasons as assistant coach under Lute Olson at Arizona. John, in a statement, thanked De Carolis, Oregon State president Ed Ray and others for their support over his six years. He led the 2004-05 team to a winning season and an NIT berth.
