FORK IT OVER
Cavaliers coach Mike Brown was fined $25,000 by the NBA for criticizing officials following Cleveland's last-second loss at Indiana on Tuesday night. Brown, who will coach the Eastern Conference team at this weekend's All-Star game, went into a tirade about a call by referee Joey Crawford that awarded the Pacers two free throws and gave them a 96-95 win. Crawford called a foul on LeBron James, who was trying to stop an alley-oop pass to Indiana's Danny Granger.

READY TO GO

Allen went through a 15-minute shooting session and said he experienced some pain, but could play. X-rays showed no broken bone and Allen said team doctors told him there was no danger of further injury to the thumb.
