P.J. didn't last a month

* THAT'S SICK: Against Toronto, New Jersey point guard Devin Harris left the game, threw up, returned and scored 23 points in the final 17 minutes. "I may try it," said teammate Vince Carter.

* AIR FARCE: In the wake of a Sports Illustrated story criticizing his leadership skills, and with Charlotte struggling, team part-owner Michael Jordan is in Dubai for the opening of a new resort.

* MONKEY BUSINESS: Just before a Suns game at Portland, Shaquille O'Neal told Joel Przybilla he loved his nickname, "Vanilla Gorilla." Said Pryzbilla: "He told me I should trademark it."

HOUSTON at DENVER

Today, 6 p.m., TV: Altitude

* The Rockets have been better on the road this season than they have been at home. Strange. In this game, Ron Artest will likely get the first chance to slow down the Nuggets' Carmelo Anthony.

ORLANDO at BOSTON

Monday, 5:30 p.m., NBA -TV

* These are two of the East's top teams. The Celtics count on Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. The Magic counter with Dwight Howard inside and a squadron of three-point shooters.

PHOENIX at NEW ORLEANS

Wednesday, 6 p.m., NBA -TV

* This game is overloaded with intriguing individual matchups: Steve Nash vs. Chris Paul, Shaquille O'Neal against shot-blocker Tyson Chandler, and Amare Stoudemire vs. David West.

Manu Ginobili

San Antonio

(on the rise)

* In his first two games after returning from ankle surgery, Ginobili averaged 13.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists. "I didn't think I would be doing this good so early, so I'm happy in that regard."

Chris Kaman

L.A. Clippers

* Suffering from a strained arch, Kaman has been placed on the limited-minutes list by the team's medical staff. "If you notice," said assistant coach Kim Hughes, "he can't jump anymore."

Nicolas Batum

Portland

* A rookie from France, Batum finished with 16 points and six rebounds in a lopsided 106-68 win over Miami. Defensively, he limited All-Star Dwyane Wade to 12 points on 5-for-14 shooting.

"We have rules, It's pretty simple. We have rules and you follow them."

- Detroit coach Michael Curry, discussing newly-acquired Allen Iverson's decision to skip an hour-long practice on Thanksgiving morning.
