NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Negotiations were expected to resume on Monday between National Basketball Association players and owners to discuss revenue splitting as a lockout continued to threaten the start of the basketball season.

Representatives from the two sides met for five hours on Sunday, but sources told Sports Illustrated the talks didn't include the sharing of revenue, which is considered the biggest issue that divides the parties.

"We had another intense meeting," player union president Derek Fisher said Sunday, according to The Associated Press. "We're going to come back at it tomorrow afternoon and continue to try and put the time in and see if we can get closer to getting a deal done."

NBA Commissioner David Stern has said that the first two weeks of the regular season would be cancelled if a deal wasn't reached by Monday afternoon.

The Milwaukee Brewers pounded the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday to win game one of the National League Championship Series 9-6.

The Brewers appearance was its first in a league championship series since the team won the American League pennant in 1982.

Prince Fielder and Yuniesky Betancourt each hit home runs in the fifth inning to lead the Brewers on a six-run tear that helped pitcher Zack Greinke to a win.

Game two of the NLCS will be played in Milwaukee Monday night. Game two of the American League Championship Series will resume in Texas a day after the game was postponed because of rain.
