Nevada is hiring Arizona State wide receivers coach Jay Norvell as its coach, sources tell ESPN. Norvell interviewed earlier Wednesday. FootballScoop.com first reported the hiring. Norvell has been an offensive coordinator at Nebraska, UCLA, Oklahoma and Texas, but this is his first head-coaching job.

Carmelo Anthony was pretty annoyed by questions about Phil Jackson saying he holds on to the ball too much. He didn't want to answer the questions. He said he didn't know what Phil said, but I'm guessing he did. "Whatever Phil said, he said. I have nothing to say about that."

Kings 120, Mavs 89 (final). Losing by 31 at home to a lottery team is a new low for the Mavs, whose 4-17 record is the NBA's worst.

ESPN Stats and Information

Carmelo's 8 points on Wednesday were the fewest he's ever scored against LeBron and the 2nd-fewest either have scored head-to-head. LeBron scored 7 in their very first meeting back in November 2003.

LeBron tries water bottle challenge during game
NBA 

Their team had a commanding lead over the Knicks, so LeBron James and Kyrie Irving had some fun on the Cavs bench by attempting the water bottle challenge. It didn't go well.

Cavs 126, Knicks 94: if this was a measuring stick game for the Knicks, they came up woefully short. With Derrick Rose out, the Knicks offense was stagnant and they had no answer for LeBron James (25 points) or Kyrie Irving (28). New York, which had won 9 of 12 coming into tonight, had very little energy in the second night of a back-to-back. Carmelo Anthony was particularly lethargic, finishing with eight points on four shots.

We've got five more minutes of garbage time to play in Knicks-Cavs, so here's a stat: Carmelo Anthony finished with eight points tonight. The last time he scored 8 points was in a January 2011 game against the Hornets.
