NBA labor talks break off
NEW YORK — Labor talks between the NBA and the players’ union broke off Wednesday, increasing the chance of a lockout starting in the off-season.
In a statement, the NBA accused the union of backtracking on several items that the sides had agreed upon. The collective bargaining agreement expires June 30.
“Since we are at a loss as to how we can possibly reach a new deal that is in any way consistent with the principal terms that we have been discussing for many months, there are no further meetings scheduled at this time,” deputy commissioner Russ Granik said.
The union did not immediately respond. If no new agreement is reached, a lockout could begin as early as July 1 — three days after the draft.
The sides had been publicly optimistic over the prospects for reaching a new deal until last Friday, when commissioner David Stern downgraded his outlook to “hopeful.” That came just hours after two union attorneys gave a verbal outline of the union’s new offer and, according to the league, changed its position on several key issues.
Suns scorch the Mavericks
PHOENIX — Steve Nash added the most impressive night yet to his marvelous MVP season, leading the Phoenix Suns within one victory of the Western Conference finals. Nash had 34 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists — his third career triple-double and first in the playoffs — and the Suns turned on the jets in a fourth-quarter outburst to beat the Dallas Mavericks 114-108 on Wednesday night.
Phoenix took a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven conference semifinal series, with Game 6 on Friday night in Dallas. Historically, when it’s a 2-2 tie, the victor in Game 5 has gone on to win the series 84 percent of the time.
Jim Jackson, the 13-year NBA veteran moved into the starting lineup for the injured Joe Johnson, made seven of eight shots in the fourth quarter for 15 of his 21 points. Amare Stoudemire rebounded from his 15-point performance in Game 4 with 33 points and a career-playoff high 18 rebounds — 21 points and 12 rebounds in the second half.
