Brandon Bass has continued to play very well for the Celtics, which means there’s a chance he may not be with the team this entire season.Scouts and opposing front-office types have begun to speak and inquire about the 29-year-old forward, a practice that’s generally a precursor to discussing a trade. Danny Ainge could not be reached on whether teams have called about Bass — not that he would say anyway — but it certainly makes sense.

CLEVELAND — LeBron James has a blunt assessment for where the Cavaliers stand after 12 games. “We're a very fragile team right now, we were a fragile team from the beginning,” James said after Cleveland squandered an early 18-point lead and lost 110-93 to the Toronto Raptors yesterday for its fourth straight loss. “Any little adversity hits us, we just shell up.”

The Brooklyn Nets couldn’t hang with the defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs, falling 99-87, Saturday night at AT&T Center. The Nets (5-7) have lost 12 straight regular-season road games in San Antonio. They last won there Jan. 22, 2002. Brooklyn, 2-21 in its last 23 against San Antonio, is 0-6 this season against teams with winning records. The Nets would cut double-digit deficits to single-digits on a couple occasions. They just could never get over the hump.
NEW YORK -- The return of Jose Calderon and the ineptitude of the Philadelphia 76ers were all it took for the New York Knicks to get a win. The Knicks topped the Sixers 91-83 on Saturday night in Calderon’s first game as a Knick. He’d missed the first 13 with a calf injury. Calderon had three points, three assists and three rebounds in 21 minutes. He missed five of six shots and turned it over once. The Knicks got a big lift, naturally, from Carmelo Anthony.
