SCOREBOARD

Tuesday, Dec. 2

Portland at New York (7:30 p.m. EST). The Trail Blazers bring a four-game winning streak into Greg Oden’s first game as a pro at Madison Square Garden. U.S. Olympic assistant coaches Nate McMillan from Portland and Mike D’Antoni of New York will be on opposite benches.

STARS

Monday

— Dwyane Wade, Heat, had 37 points and 13 assists to help Miami pull off a wild 130-129 comeback win over Golden State in overtime.

— Emeka Okafor, Bobcats, had 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field and 6-for-6 at the foul line and added 10 rebounds in a 100-90 win over Minnesota.

— Paul Pierce, Celtics, scored 17 of his 24 points in the third quarter and Boston beat Orlando 107-88 for its ninth straight victory.

SEPARATE WAYS

Stephon Marbury was ordered to stay away from the New York Knicks while the team looks for a solution to its $21 million problem—one that has lingered since the preseason and was amplified last week when the team suspended Marbury for refusing to play and he retaliated with a series of inflammatory remarks about coach Mike D’Antoni. Marbury’s future was “not resolved” during a meeting with team president Donnie Walsh at the Knicks’ practice facility, according to the players’ association attorney representing him. The sides will continue to talk, but Marbury won’t be around in the meantime.

STILL STRUGGLING

Jamal Crawford missed a running jumper at the overtime buzzer and sprawled himself on the court in frustration after Golden State dropped its seventh straight game, 130-129 to Miami. Crawford scored six of his 40 points in overtime and dished out seven assists, but the Warriors fell short in a game they had in their grasp until the waning moments. Crawford is winless since joining Golden State in a trade from New York on Nov. 21 that sent Al Harrington to the Knicks.

LOOKING HEALTHY

Jason Richardson scored 25 points in another strong performance following arthroscopic knee surgery, helping Charlotte beat Minnesota 100-90. It was the third straight game of at least 21 points for Richardson since his return after sitting out seven contests following exploratory surgery on his right knee. He led an efficient offense that also featured Raymond Felton’s 14 assists with only one turnover.

SNAPPED

The Magic had their four-game winning streak stopped with a 107-88 loss at Boston. Orlando had won six straight road games, one short of the club record set at the start of last season.

SIDELINED

Houston star Tracy McGrady is expected to be out at least a week and his playing time will be restricted when he returns while he struggles with soreness in his left knee stemming from offseason surgery. McGrady, who has missed the last three games, will continue a rehabilitation program to help alleviate the soreness in his knee. The Rockets also will be without Brent Barry for a while as he recovers from a small muscle tear in his right leg. Barry has missed the last two games and will rest for two weeks before returning to practice. … Minnesota swingman Corey Brewer will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his right knee. The team’s defensive specialist tore the anterior cruciate ligament in Saturday’s loss to Denver. An MRI revealed the extent of the damage, but a date for surgery had not been set.

INJURED

Former NBA standout Rodney Rogers was hospitalized after getting hurt while riding an all-terrain vehicle. The North Carolina Highway Patrol said Rogers was four-wheeling in the woods Saturday when he fell off the vehicle. A patrol spokesman said Rogers was taken by helicopter to Duke University Hospital. His condition wasn’t immediately known Monday night. Rogers spent 12 seasons in the NBA from 1993-2005 and won the league’s Sixth Man Award in 2000 with the Phoenix Suns. The 6-foot-7 forward played for seven teams during his career, averaging 10.9 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.

SPEAKING

“I better be quiet before I get a technical.”—Celtics coach Doc Rivers after eight technical fouls were called in Boston’s 107-88 victory over the Orlando Magic, including four in the first half by referee Bob Delaney.
