AFTER WEEKS OF negotiations and intrigue, Doc Rivers has officially left the Boston Celtics for the Los Angeles Clippers. Rivers will be introduced as the Clippers' new coach and senior vice president of basketball operations at a news conference today at their Playa Vista training complex, capping a lengthy process by completing a rare trade involving a championship-winning coach. The Clippers and Celtics finalized the move yesterday when the NBA approved the deal. Boston will get an unprotected first-round pick in 2015 from the Clippers for Rivers, who went 416-305 and won the 2008 NBA title during nine seasons with the Celtics.

Chester's postgame celebration was subtle at best. Sure, Karon Burton laughed with teammates last night. Nasir Robinson even posed with him for pictures. But for the most part, the Clippers showed very little emotion as they received gold medals. The talented and poised Clippers were only 10 minutes removed from defeating Norristown, 61-47, in the District 1 Class AAAA championship at Villanova's Pavilion. Perhaps Chester didn't celebrate because winning district titles has come to be expected.

In many ways, Chester's game at the Haverford School on Saturday was a microcosm of the Clippers' season. The Clippers would move the ball and then self-destruct. The Clippers would flash brilliance on one play and then stumble on the next. There was one big difference between Saturday's game and Chester's first two games of the year, however. The Clippers won. They overcame the previously unbeaten Fords, 27-14, and they overcame themselves. "That's the way it's been all year," Chester coach Mike White said.

Orlando's J.J. Redick gave the Magic their first lead on a three-pointer with 42 seconds remaining as they shocked the Clippers, 104-101, Saturday in Los Angeles to snap a 10-game skid. The loss, despite Blake Griffin's 30 points, ended the Clippers' 13-game home-winning streak. All-star guard Chris Paul went down holding his right knee with 54 seconds to go but returned after a timeout to hit a 15-footer to draw Los Angeles within one with 33 seconds left. But the Clippers turned the ball over on Jamal Crawford's offensive foul.

Tornados are a rarity in this part of the country. But to Chester's football team, Red Tornados are still a menace. On Saturday, the Clippers ran into the Red Tornados of J.P. McCaskey. And with a defensive line that averages more than 225 pounds, the Clippers' running game was swept away, as was visiting Chester, 20-6. "It's disappointing to lose, but I'm very proud of the kids," said Clippers coach Don Masse. "We made a 75 percent improvement over last week (a 16-8 loss to Lower Merion)

Chichester head coach Tony Irvin was delighted that league rival Chester had received some national prominence Tuesday. Until he had to face the Clippers on the court. On Tuesday morning, USA Today ranked Chester 18th in the entire nation in its weekly poll. Later that afternoon, Irvin got an idea why as he watched the Clippers dismantle his Eagles 97-39 in the first Del-Val League matchup for both schools. "I think it says something about how strong their program is. And it's great because they deserve it," Irvin said.

Samara Benson and her Chester girls' indoor-track teammates are forced to practice in a tunnel, but they sure know what to do when they get on a track. Because of limited facilities, the Clippers can do no better than a cold, winding 100-foot-long tunnel at the school to hone their track and field skills. That doesn't leave a whole lot of room for practicing things like baton passes and the triple jump. But somehow, the Clippers persevere. Friday night at Haverford College, Chester just missed capturing the the Delaware County Indoor Girls' Track and Field Championships.

The Chester Clippers are just one game away from having a better turnaround season than even the Baltimore Orioles. And based solely on what the Clippers did to perennial Del-Val National Division power Penn Wood on Saturday, Chester's accomplishments may have already surpassed the Birds' magic on the baseball diamond in 1989. The Clippers, who were a dismal 2-10 last year, improved to 7-2 and 5-0 in the league after crushing the Patriots, 35-12, at Kerr Field in Yeadon. And if Chester beats Interboro on Saturday, it will win its first title since 1986.

Frank Rago remembers the score of his first victory as the Clayton High School boys' basketball coach. "41-36," Rago said. That's a typical halftime score for Clayton these days, and if the Clippers are the team with 36, Rago is OK with that. There are still 16 more minutes to shoot three-pointers, fastbreak, shoot three-pointers, double-team the ball at every chance, substitute in waves, and shoot three-pointers. Rago doesn't pretend to have instituted a winning strategy at the little school in Gloucester County.

IF THERE WAS ever a moment perfectly suited for 76ers rookie Jahlil Okafor to show what he has learned, it was the one that presented itself with just over 10 seconds to go in the fourth quarter Monday against the Los Angeles Clippers. The game was tied and the Sixers were inbounding from midcourt. The plan was to get Okafor the ball in an isolation against Clippers center DeAndre Jordan about 15 feet from the basket. There, coach Brett Brown envisioned, Okafor could either take Jordan to the basket on the dribble or free himself up for a midrange jump shot.

Luc Mbah a Moute calls his situation with the Los Angeles Clippers a blessing. But this summer was full of disappointments for the small forward, who played for the 76ers last season. After giving him the impression that he would a part of their plans, the Sixers chose not to re-sign him in the offseason. So he signed a free-agent deal with the Sacramento Kings on July 14. Two days later, the Kings voided his contract after he failed a physical. The 6-foot-8, 230-pounder later filed a grievance against Sacramento and was awarded a settlement.

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.

The 76ers' newfound swagger took a stiff right to the chin from the Los Angeles Lakers before several haymakers courtesy of the Los Angeles Clippers. While they were dazed, and perhaps in need of a standing eight count, the Sixers (3-33) were still pleased with their overall fight in the five-game, post-Christmas West Coast trip. They opened the trip by defeating the Phoenix Suns, 111-104, on Dec. 26 before losing, 95-91, to the Utah Jazz two days later. Then the Sixers got back on the winning track with a 110-105 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Dec. 30. But they ended the trip with losses on consecutive days to the Lakers and Clippers at the Staples Center.

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.

Football is often described as a game of adjustments. The Clayton football team demonstrated that Saturday in a 28-7 win over Maple Shade. At halftime, the Clippers entered the locker room down, 7-0, in the West Jersey Football League interdivision game. Clayton coaches had just watched the visitors control the ball for most of the first half, highlighted by Maple Shade's nine-minute drive. Coach Marvin Tucker changed his game plan to something most struggling offenses look to. "We went to some old-school football, and we just ran the ball.

THERE WAS the stutter-step dribble that led to a lefthanded floater. Another time it was the one-dribble power move to the left that led to a layup. There also was a quick power move to the right baseline over a smaller defender that went for a dunk and an ensuing free throw. He also ran down Chris Paul from behind and flicked the ball away from him during a dribble, leading to a basket at the other end. Nerlens Noel's progression can't be talked or written about enough. Last night, he was matched up against Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, one of the premier rebounders and shot blockers in the NBA, though offensively challenged.

The 76ers know the real tests are coming. They've won five of their last 10 games, but one of those wins came against an Atlanta Hawks squad that rested three starters. The other four victories were against opponents that had a combined winning percentage of .328 heading into Thursday's games. The Sixers (18-54) have made dramatic improvements since opening the season with 17 consecutive losses. But the coming games against the Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers will be a true barometer of how far they've come.

NEW YORK - Derek Fisher sat in his slightly darkened office at Madison Square Garden and, as usual, reviewed videotape. It was 3 hours before his Knicks welcomed the Clippers to MSG on Wednesday. The video showed the Clippers' usual array of monster dunks and fastbreak thunder, but it also revealed a maestro at work. Fisher, less than a season removed from playing in the NBA, couldn't help but be awed at the deftness with which Chris Paul orchestrated the movements of every player on the court.
