CLEVELAND  — They found the open man. They made the extra pass. They moved the ball with stunning efficiency.
The Spurs put on a basketball clinic. The Cavaliers couldn’t stop it.
Danny Green scored 24 points and San Antonio turned to its 3-point shooting to shake off a sluggish start in a 122-101 victory over Cleveland on Tuesday night.
Kawhi Leonard added 18 points, and Patty Mills and Boris Diaw had 16 apiece as the Spurs, running their offense to near perfection, won their fourth straight. They did it with stars Tim Duncan and Tony Parker combining for just 14 points.

COLUMBUS — Three days removed from surgery to relieve pressure from a cyst on his brain, Urban Meyer supervised Ohio State’s first day of spring practice on Tuesday.
He did just about everything he usually did. He just wasn’t quite as loud doing it.
Asked if he was limited in any way by the operation to alleviate recurring headaches, the former Bowling Green Falcon head coach said there was one bit of advice from doctors.
“Just watch how long I scream,” he said. “I’m not kidding you. And how long I blow the whistle. So I had (operations assistant Fernando Lovo) blowing the whistle today and it didn’t sound very good. It didn’t sound the same. So I’ll be back after spring break. You’ll hear it again.”
A cyst on the surface of his brain was drained during a procedure at Ohio State Medical Center. He said it wasn’t the first time he’d encountered problems with the congenital growth.

NEWARK, N.J. — Martin Brodeur has been the masked face of the New Jersey Devils for 20 years.
But on the eve of the NHL trade deadline, both the goalie and the only team he has played for are contemplating an uncertain future.
“I don’t know,” Brodeur said about the possibility of being traded following a 20-save effort in a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night that could have marked his final game with New Jersey.
“I had some good conversations with Lou (Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello) about what I want to do for the rest of the year and maybe next year. From there you know it’s up to him to make the decision that he wants. He knows exactly where I stand.”
Stephen Gionta scored the tiebreaking goal with under 37 seconds left to lift New Jersey to victory. Adam

COLUMBUS — While Artem Anisimov has found another level of play, the Blue Jackets are still trying to find how to keep the pressure on as they chase a playoff spot.
Anisimov scored twice, including a late insurance goal, as Columbus held off a third-period Dallas rally for a 4-2 win over the Dallas Stars.
“Right now might be as good as we’ve seen him play in a Columbus uniform,” Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said of Anisimov, who has scored five times in the last four games. “Two huge goals for us, especially the last one with the way the game was going.”
Columbus dug in for its third straight win to climb into a tie for seventh with the Rangers in the Eastern Conference.
“Bob’s (Sergei Bobrovsky) our last line of defense and it’s a great last line to have,” Richards said. “But as a young team going forward and playing with leads, a 3-0 lead, that’s where you want to continue to go after teams.”

COLUMBUS — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer had a short medical procedure over the weekend.
In a statement released Monday night, a team spokesman said the surgery was to remove fluid from a cyst on Meyer’s brain. The cyst was originally discovered in 1998 when Meyer was an assistant at Notre Dame.
