The NBA plans to open an office in London this summer in an effort to expand its fan base in Europe. Officials will work with the British Olympic Association and focus on basketball development leading up to the 2012 Olympics, NBA commissioner David Stern announced Wednesday.

``The fourth quarter wasn't pretty. Both teams were on fire defensively, not on the offensive side.'' - Jason Kidd after leading New Jersey to an ugly 83-72 victory over the Cavaliers on Wednesday night. The Nets made just 1 of 15 shots in the fourth quarter, scoring six points. Cleveland was 3-for-17 and had 13 points.
