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.

KOBE BRYANT has been voted to his NBA-record 15th consecutive All-Star start, leading four Los Angeles players into next month's game.

Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, the MVP of last year's game, rounds out the five. Kevin Garnett held off Chris Bosh in fan balloting, giving the East two Boston Celtics and two Miami Heat players.

Danny Green scored 25 points as the San Antonio Spurs spoiled Dirk Nowitzki's season debut with a 129-91 rout of the visiting Dallas Mavericks Sunday. After missing the Mavs' first 27 regular-season games, Nowitzki entered with 6 minutes, 28 seconds left in the first quarter to a mix of cheers and boos. Nowitzki, who underwent surgery on his right knee Oct. 19, quickly picked up a rebound for Dallas and finished with eight points and six rebounds. Elsewhere: Carmelo Anthony scored 19 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter to rally the host New York Knicks to a 94-91 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

NEW YORK - From Kobe Bryant to Chris Paul, Blake Griffin to Andrew Bynum, the NBA All-Star Game is shaping up as an LA story. Two Lakers (Bryant and Bynum) and two Clippers (Paul and Griffin) were voted as starters yesterday for the game, the first time in 15 years that two pairs of teammates have been voted to start for one conference. Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant prevented a Los Angeles sweep of the Western Conference starting lineup by earning a forward spot for the Feb. 26 game in Orlando.

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.

The NBA's career scoring leader in the All-Star Game, Kobe Bryant has never been just about offense. "I'm known for my defense," Bryant said. "I can defend. I'm pretty smart with my defense. " Pretty good, too. Ask LeBron James. Bryant blocked James' jumper, turning it into a dunk by Kevin Durant that helped the Western Conference put away the East 143-138 on Sunday. Bryant may not leap like Blake Griffin, but he can still get up when he needs to, especially when the defenseless part of the All-Star Game is over and it's time to stop somebody - even the league's best player.

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.

One would assume that the 76ers recorded nothing but lopsided losses on the West Coast portion of their seven-game road trip. After beating the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat, they lost by an average of 26 points to the Portland Trail Blazers, Utah Jazz, Golden State Warriors, Phoenix Suns, and Los Angeles Clippers. But coach Brett Brown says his 4-28 team's five straight losses could benefit the Sixers in the long run. His young players learned about the "reality of the landscape of the NBA," Brown said.

LOS ANGELES - The 76ers' West Coast road trip ended the way most had expected it would - with a lopsided loss. The Sixers are nowhere close to the caliber of the Los Angeles Clippers, and that became evident once the hosts stopped going through the motions. Sparked by a 28-11 second-half run, Los Angeles rolled to a 127-91 victory at the Staples Center on Saturday night. "I was proud of our group for 36 minutes," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

WE MIGHT YET be spared the spectacle of the defense of racism by a horde of legal vultures. Fallen Clippers owner Donald Sterling, fined, banned and soon to be forced to sell his team, now reportedly is facilitating a sale through his wife, who seeks to retain a share of the team. The NBA might still force the sale on its teams if Sterling's are unacceptable; but, at the very least, Sterling appears willing to let the cancer he has become be excised. If that is the case, certainly it will speed healing on his team, in the league and among those around the country who care about the issue and the story.

NEW ORLEANS - It was a record-setting showcase at the Smoothie King Center. Carmelo Anthony broke the NBA All-Star Game's record for the most three-pointers. Blake Griffin set the record for the most field goals. And sparked by Anthony and Kyrie Irving, the Eastern Conference all-stars recorded a come-from-behind, 163-155 victory over their Western Conference counterparts on Sunday night. The East snapped a three-game All-Star Game losing streak. In the process, the squad's point total shattered the record of 155 scored by the West in a double-overtime victory in 2003.

NEW ORLEANS - There was debate before this All-Star Game as to whether 76ers rookie Michael Carter-Williams would benefit from a full weekend of activity around the best players in the world, or if his worn body could use the much-needed rest and relaxation. Coach Brett Brown, a veteran of a few All-Star Games as an assistant, was a strong proponent of the former. He believes MCW will benefit from being exposed to what it takes to be an All-Star, both on and off the court. The coach was right, it appears.

LOS ANGELES - Arnett Moultrie talked about being "an energy guy" for the 76ers. The reserve power forward/center was excited about his first appearance of the season Sunday night. But all he did was experience a beat-down alongside his teammates. The Los Angeles Clippers humiliated the Sixers, 123-78, at the Staples Center. In Moultrie's defense, the game was out of hand by the time he entered with 2 minutes, 8 seconds left in the opening quarter. By then, the Clippers (36-18)

FOR THE MOST part of last night's game it appeared as if the 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers were trying to shoot baskets in a blizzard. It was easier to see the yard markers in Sunday's Eagles game than it was to find a good-looking shot, especially from the home team. Unlike the Eagles, who Sunday relied on a running game when the passing one wasn't working, the Sixers don't have an inside game to rely on much for easy baskets, so when the jumpers aren't falling the losses will mount.
