Martin Brodeur is retiring to take a front office job with the St. Louis Blues. The New Jersey Devils have a spot waiting for one of the greatest goaltenders in NHL history whenever he is ready to come back home. He is aware of that and has always been aware of that,'' Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said Tuesday. ''He could have come back even now if he wanted to.'' The 10-time All-Star and four-time Vezina Trophy winner finished his career with St. Louis after a standout, two-decade run with New Jersey.

Derrick Rose hit a step-back jumper with 7 seconds remaining in overtime, and the Chicago Bulls ended Golden State's franchise-record 19-game home winning streak with a thrilling 113-111 victory over the Warriors on Tuesday night. ''Anybody can get momentum or anybody can get the feeling they can beat anybody when you beat a team like this,'' Rose said. Rose, looking as healthy as ever, dribbled to his left and created space to get off the 20-footer over Klay Thompson, skipping around the court after the Warriors called timeout. Rose finished with 30 points, and his final basket overshadowed a night when he committed a career-high 11 turnovers and made just 13 of 33 shots.

LeBron James came leaping in to try to stop Jodie Meeks as the Detroit guard drove to the basket during the final seconds of the third quarter. After colliding with Meeks, James put his hands out to break his fall before sliding across the floor on his stomach. ''I was scared, because I broke my wrist on a fall like that in high school,'' James said. I'm OK now - it was just something like a stinger - but I wasn't sure at first.'' James barely missed any game time after that anxious moment, and he finished with 32 points to help the Cleveland Cavaliers to their seventh straight victory Tuesday night, 103-95 over the Pistons.

Venus Williams lost her quarterfinal match against Madison Keys on Wednesday at the Australian Open. Serena Williams, the other sister in a family that has won a combined 25 Grand Slam singles titles, will attempt to right the wrong in the semifinals on Thursday. In men's play, top-seeded Novak Djokovic didn't face a break point against hard-serving Milos Raonic in beating the Canadian 7-6 (5), 6-4, 6-2 in exactly two hours to advance to his 25th Grand Slam semifinal. He broke Raonic early in each of the second and third sets and will play defending champion Stan Wawrinka, who earlier beat Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (6).

A jury convicted two ex-Vanderbilt football players on Tuesday of raping a former student, rejecting claims that they were too drunk to know what they were doing and that a college culture of binge drinking and promiscuous sex should be blamed for the attack. The jury deliberated for three hours before announcing that Brandon Vandenburg and Cory Batey were guilty of aggravated rape and aggravated sexual battery. Batey was stoic, staring ahead and Vandenburg shook his head ''no,'' appearing stunned. They also saw cellphone images from the night of the attack that Vandenburg sent to his friends as it was happening.

Zach Randolph scored 22 points, including several high-arcing jumpers over defensive stalwart Tyson Chandler in the second half to answer Dallas scoring spurts, and Memphis handed the Mavericks their first three-game losing streak of the season with a 109-90 win Tuesday night. ''We only had to call one timeout to stop a run,'' Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger said. ''We executed, and you can't say enough about what Zach got going in the second half.'' The Mavericks had trailed by as many as 16 points but were within nine late in the third quarter when Randolph had the ball on the right wing late in the shot clock. He hit a 20-footer over Chandler, and the Grizzlies led by double digits the rest of the way to win their fourth straight and eighth in their past nine games a night after finishing a season-long five-game homestand.
