DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban called Donald Sterlings purported comments about minorities "abhorrent" while saying he didnt think the NBA could force him out as owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. Speaking in Dallas locker room before Game 4 of a first-round series against San Antonio on Monday night, Cuban said he trusted Commissioner Adam Silver to "operate under the best interest of the NBA." The outspoken billionaire said it was a "slippery slope" to suggest that Sterling should be forced out as owner over comments made in the privacy of his home. "What Donald said was wrong. It was abhorrent," Cuban said. "Theres no place for racism in the NBA, any business Im associated with. But at the same time, thats a decision I make. I think youve got to be very, very careful when you start making blanket statements about what people say and think, as opposed to what they do. Its a very, very slippery slope." Two days earlier, Cuban declined to give his opinion over the brewing saga of the racist comments that Sterling is alleged to have made in a taped conversation. While he was more forceful in his rebuke of Sterling in front of about two dozen reporters Monday, Cuban questioned how the league would legislate other forms of discrimination. "How many people are bigoted in one way or the other in this league?" Cuban asked. "I dont know. But you find one, all of a sudden you say well, you cant play favourites being racist against African-Americans. Where do you draw the line?" Asked if the league would be better off without Sterling as an owner, Cuban said, "At this point, yes." "But that has nothing to do with the rules that we have to live by," Cuban said. "Theres a lot of things I dont agree with that by letter and rule of law has to happen anyway. When you live in a country of laws, you want to support there are laws." Cuban noted that he recently fought the Securities and Exchange Commission over claims that he broke laws on insider trading. And he has remained outspoken against the SEC since he won the civil lawsuit the agency filed against him over the sale of his shares in an Internet company. "Yet I still support the rule of law," Cuban said. "Theres a reason why we have a (league) constitution. Its worked for 50, however many years. It will continue to work." Terrence Ross Jersey .

Hunter Pence hit a two-run single in San Franciscos four-run fifth, leading the Giants to a 5-3 victory over the Indians on Saturday. "That one inning, it just got contagious," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. McAllister (3-1) retired 12 in a row before Michael Morse led off the fifth with a single to centre. Morse advanced to third on Brandon Crawfords one-out single and scored on Gregor Blancos pinch-hit single that came on a first-pitch fastball. "Coming off the bench, its not that easy to do," Blanco said. "In that situation to get a pinch hit and drive one in ... you just got to be aggressive." Angel Pagan had a sacrifice fly before Pences two-out hit gave the Giants a 4-3 lead. McAllister left after Brandon Belt struck out to end the inning. He allowed five hits, struck out six and walked one after winning his previous three starts. Buster Posey added a solo homer in the sixth as San Francisco earned its third consecutive win. Posey, who won the NL MVP award in 2012, went 1 for 3 and is batting .103 (4 for 39) over his last 13 games. "I was happy for Buster," Bochy said. "You go through these tough streaks and its not easy." Giants starter Tim Lincecum lasted just 4 2-3 innings, but managed to lower his ERA to 5.96. He was charged with three runs, two earned, and nine hits. "We did a really good job of making (Lincecum) work," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "We just werent able to get that one more hit to tack on." Lincecum has pitched just 25 2-3 innings in five starts in his first season since he signed a $35 million, two-year contract over the winter. "I had my game plan. I just wasnt executing it," Lincecum said. "That kind of exacerbated the feeling of hopelessness, I guess.dddddddddddd Well, not hopelessness, but just things arent going right. Fix that tomorrow." But San Francisco continued to get strong work from its bullpen. Juan Gutierrez (1-1), Jean Machi, Jeremy Affeldt and Sergio Romo combined for 4 1-3 hitless innings after Lincecum departed. Romo got three outs for his sixth save in six chances as San Franciscos bullpen lowered its MLB-best home ERA to 0.45 in 11 games. "Very impressive," Bochy said. "They won the game for us today with the job they did." Bochy went out of his way to praise Gutierrez for striking out Yan Gomes with the bases loaded to end the fifth inning. Michael Bourn, Nick Swisher and David Murphy had two hits apiece for Cleveland. Jason Kipnis drove in two runs. Cleveland scored in the first, third and fifth to build a 3-0 lead. Kipnis singled in Bourn in the first and drove in Swisher with a grounder in the third. Swisher doubled home Bourn in the fifth. Saturday marked the 257th straight regular-season sellout at AT&T Park, matching the National League record set by the Philadelphia Phillies from July 7, 2009 to Aug. 5, 2012. Up next on the MLB sellout streak list is the Indians, who sold out Jacobs Field 455 times from June 12, 1995 to April 2, 2001. NOTES: The Giants have now started off interleague play with two consecutive wins against the Indians after going 6-14 in 2013, the second-worst mark in MLB. ...
