 SCOREBOARD
Monday, Nov. 12
Cleveland at Denver (9 p.m. EST). LeBron James and the Cavaliers close out a six-game road swing against the Nuggets.

STARS
Sunday
-Yao Ming, Rockets, scored a season-high 34 points, including a pair of free throws with 20.4 seconds left, and Houston rallied to beat Charlotte 85-82.
-Drew Gooden, Cavaliers, had 18 points and 17 rebounds and Cleveland held on to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 103-95.
-Richard Hamilton, Pistons, scored a season-high 32 points to lead Detroit past Seattle 107-103.
-Antawn Jamison, Wizards, poured in 23 points and had 15 rebounds and Washington beat Atlanta 101-90.
-Jason Williams, Heat, knocked down the go-ahead shot with 19 seconds left and Miami edged New York 75-72.

WINLESS NO MORE
Washington beat Atlanta 101-90 to avoid the first 0-6 start in franchise history. The Baltimore Bullets lost their first five games in the 1966-67 season for the only other 0-5 start in Wizards history.

WORST START EVER
Detroit topped Seattle 107-103 to drop the SuperSonics to 0-7, the worst start in franchise history. Before this season, the Sonics had previously started 0-6 only once - the 1969-70 season.

NOT THIS YEAR
David West and Chris Paul each scored 16 points lead New Orleans to a 93-72 win over Philadelphia on Sunday. The 76ers swept the season series from the Hornets last year.

STRONG IN DEFEAT
Sam Cassell scored 28 points and Corey Maggette chipped in 25 points and 11 rebounds but the Los Angeles Clippers fell to Cleveland 103-95. The Clippers lost their second in a row after opening the season 4-0.

REASSIGNED
Houston reassigned sharp-shooting forward Steve Novak to Rio Grande, the team's affiliate in the developmental league. The 6-foot-10 Novak has been inactive in the Rockets' first six games this season. Novak appeared in 35 games in 2006-07, his rookie season.

SPEAKING
``It feels like you got King Kong off your back.'' - Washington's Caron Butler, who scored 24 points on Sunday to help the Wizards avoid the first 0-6 start in franchise history with a 101-90 win over Atlanta.
