NBA Marathon Session Ends After 15 Hours
NEW YORK (AP) -- NBA owners and players have ended a marathon negotiation session, meeting for more than 15 hours in talks aimed at ending the lockout.

The talks were centered on the salary cap system, a person with knowledge of the discussions told The Associated Press, adding that "both sides are demonstrating a commitment to getting a deal done."

They'll return to the table Thursday afternoon.

The sides returned to bargaining with a small group meeting less than a week after three intense days of mediation didn't produce a new labor deal. Wednesday's negotiations marked the second-longest bargaining session since the lockout began July 1. The talks stretched into early Thursday morning, the first time bargaining has gone past 3 a.m.

The first two weeks of the season already have been canceled, and there's little time left to save any basketball in November
