Around the league
CRYING FOUL: With technical-foul calls nearly doubled compared to the same point last season, union director Billy Hunter wants commissioner David Stern to lighten up on the league's crackdown on complaining, or he might even seek legal action against the league.
Players are fined for every technical foul they receive, and there were 122 called through the first 51 games. There were 66 through 50 games last season.
BROWN SETTLEMENT: The Knicks will pay Larry Brown $18.5-million to settle a dispute over his firing in June, less than half what the Hall of Fame coach had left on his contract when he was fired, team owner Cablevision Systems Corp. said.
CELTICS: Forward Al Jefferson had his appendix removed and is resting comfortably at a hospital.
NUGGETS: Forward Kenyon Martin was sent for an MRI exam on his swollen right knee, forcing him to miss the game against the Knicks.
