Mario Chalmers' teammates were yelling at him again, as were a few coaches. Dwyane Wade threw a towel his way, and LeBron James even placed the Miami Heat point guard in a headlock.
This was all good.
Chalmers put on a shooting display to remember in Sacramento on Saturday night, making 10 3-pointers -- the most in the NBA this season and good enough to tie a 20-year-old Heat franchise record, part of his career-best 34-point effort as Miami topped the Kings 128-99, the biggest point total put up so far this season by the reigning NBA champions.
"Rio had it goin', man," James said. "And we kept finding him. It was awesome."
Chalmers' final numbers: 12-for-16 from the floor, 10-for-13 from beyond the arc, and one of those misses was a 45-footer that bounced off the rim just before the halftime buzzer. He's long been the player that teammates love to chastise on the floor when things aren't going right for the Heat, though moments like that ...

The Miami Heat enter tonight’s game in Utah 1-2 on their current six-game road trip. After losing the first two at Indiana and Portland, they got back on track with a big 128-99 win at Sacramento behind Mario Chalmers’ 34 points (10-13 three-pointers). The Jazz, too, redeemed themselves in their previous game (vs Detroit) after squandering a 15-point third quarter lead the game...
These “Groupie Tales” are always funny to me, because they could be 100% accurate (athletes just like anybody else, do some crazy things behind closed doors) or could just be someone looking for their 15 minutes of fame.
That is the gift and the curse of being a celebrity, someone is always trying to get the scoop on you. For instance Full Court Pumps relays a message from...
While chatter simmers between Greg Oden’s camp and the Miami Heat over a comeback for the 7-footer, our hero decided it was time to get away from the rehab for some relaxation. That meant Greg packed a bag and went to Kalahari, the Sandusky, Ohio indoor water park notorious for screaming kids and drunk parents.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- LeBron James once scored 51 points against the Utah Jazz, and needed 50 on Monday night to become the youngest player to reach 20,000 for his career.

"We're trying to learn how to push a lead from 20 to 30 and close...
