LOS ANGELES - The collective sigh of relief could be felt throughout Staples Center last night when All-Star Weekend came to a conclusion. One of the premier, upcoming superstars, Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers, was asked to compete in Friday night's rookie-sophomore game, Saturday's dunk contest (which he won) and yesterday's main event. Griffin is not only the toast of LA, but is the talk of the whole league. Having him on the floor so much the last 3 days couldn't have been an ideal situation for Clippers fans or higher-ups.

Now it's Blake Griffin's turn. In the last two weeks, the star power that has ventured into the Wells Fargo Center to face the 76ers has been staggering. Next up are Griffin, point guard Chris Paul, and the Los Angeles Clippers. They visit the Sixers for Friday's matchup between teams that entered Thursday seeded third in their respective conferences. The star power began with wins over Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic on Jan. 30 and reigning MVP Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls on Feb. 1. Last Friday, LeBron James and fellow all-star Dwyane Wade led Miami to a 99-79 victory before the Sixers' biggest home crowd of the season, 20,694.

STEPHEN CURRY may look angelic, but to the rest of the NBA, he is Satan in sneakers. He can score off the dribble, coming off a pick, in transition or thread a pass to a teammate like a snake flicks its tongue. On Saturday, he makes his annual visit to the Wells Fargo Center. So here's a closer look at Curry, who is on his way to a second consecutive MVP Award, a second consecutive NBA championship, his first scoring title and inevitable comparison's to some of the greats to ever play the game.

Talks between the Clippers and the Celtics on a possible deal that would send Boston coach Doc Rivers to Los Angeles reached a stalemate when both sides refused to budge on their offers, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday, citing several NBA executives. If Boston isn't interested in their offer and Rivers isn't available, the Clippers will hire either Indiana associate head coach Brian Shaw or former Memphis coach Lionel Hollins this week, according to the executives, who asked to remain anonymous, the Times said.

AS FAR AS making practice squads, Jrue Holiday Monday made perhaps the best one in all of sports. The starting point guard for the 76ers was added to the 2012 USA Men's Select Team that will train July 6-11 against this year's USA National Team during a training camp in Las Vegas. Fellow Sixer Andre Iguodala is part of the National Team, vying for a spot on the roster that will compete in the London Olympics later this month. Said USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo of Holiday: "In naming Jrue to our Select Team, we've added an athletic guard who can get to the rim and someone who is also a good three-point shooter.

It's a question that most 76ers fans ask: How does their team plan to attract free agents? The Sixers realize they won't be major players for the franchise-altering free agents this summer. But their answer is clear. "Some people say the [overall] class is not as strong a class of free agents," said Jerry Colangelo, the Sixers chairman of basketball operations. "Well, our job is still to create an atmosphere here where free agents want to come to you. "And so you've got to get it jump-started first.

Coming off Saturday's win over the Brooklyn Nets, the 76ers had a chance - a legitimate chance - to start an actual winning streak. For the first 6 minutes, 36 seconds of Monday's game, they led the favored Los Angeles Clippers by 12 points. After weathering a Clippers run, the Sixers extended their lead to 19 points with 4:24 before intermission. And they had an eight-point cushion with 5:59 remaining in the game. Once again, however, they managed to find a way to lose. The Clippers ended the game on a 22-8 run to take a 98-92 overtime victory at the Wells Fargo Center.

A LOOK at the Los Angeles Clippers shows just how daunting a task confronts Sam Hinkie. Hinkie, the Sixers' general manager, has said numerous times that the goal of "The Plan" and "The Process" the Sixers are going through is to build a team that will be playing "in June. " While Hinkie has never specifically said "NBA Finals," the league's championship series usually begins the first week in June, so it is really the only basketball being played during that month. In each of the previous three seasons, the Clippers have won at least 55 games.

LOS ANGELES - It was a night on which the 76ers didn't have any answers. They were being torched with their small lineup. Things got worse when they played their twin towers of Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor together after intermission. Saturday night ended with a 130-99 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center. It was the most points the Clippers (22-13) scored this season. It was also the most points the Sixers (3-33) have allowed. The 31-point outcome was the Clippers' largest margin of victory.

BACK IN high school, Sam Bradford was a smooth two-guard on an AAU team that featured Blake Griffin, so he is well-aware of the proper way to operate a fastbreak offense against an overmatched "D. " "Lob city," the quarterback said Saturday night when asked to put into words his personal philosophy on sharing a playing surface with a human being capable of dunking over a midsize sedan. Two hours earlier, Bradford led the Eagles on their own version of the fastbreak: a frenetic, 12-play charge down the field against a Ravens defense that might have backed up all the way to Baltimore if not for a touchdown that relieved them of their duty to keep pretending to try. Over the course of just 3 minutes and 55 second of game clock, the Eagles used four different personnel packages, employing the same one on consecutive plays just four times.

After the Eagles finished practice on Thursday, the quarterbacks retreated to a far corner and worked on falling to the ground. They even tried tumbling. For such a glamorous position, it was not an especially graceful display. But considering that Sam Bradford's last two seasons ended with ominous falls, the training might be beneficial. "I hope so," Bradford said, "or else we'd just look pretty foolish over there doing it. " Bradford has practiced four days without needing to pull back or manage his workload.

As the NBA regular season winds down, there are really only two reasons to watch the 76ers play these days. One is to see the continuing and stunning progress of center Nerlens Noel in a rookie season that gets more impressive by the month. The other is to see the opponent, especially one that is primed with a full supply of legitimate NBA talent. Both circumstances intersected when the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Sixers, 119-98, on Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

THIS IS push time in the NBA – teams pushing for a better playoff seeding or making that push to become part of the 16-team tournament that begins in late April. Many teams, however, are facing that final shove without a full complement of weapons. This season, seemingly more than most others, has been riddled with injuries, especially to big-time players. Derrick Rose, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, LeBron James, Jimmy Butler, and so on, and so on. So many big names missing so much time.

Jordan Price has gone on scoring sprees before, but the La Salle sophomore can't remember a hotter five minutes than the run he experienced Wednesday in a 74-69 double-overtime win at Virginia Commonwealth. In the second overtime, Price scored all 12 of his team's points as La Salle beat a VCU team that is in a four-way tie for first place in the Atlantic Ten. "I can't think of ever scoring that many in an overtime period," Price said Thursday, still trying to digest the enormity of his performance.
