BOSTON - A day after a 45-point shellacking at the hands of the Chicago Bulls, you didn't expect to see many happy faces in the 76ers' locker room before last night's game against the blistering Boston Celtics. And there weren't, really, until one topic was brought up. Christmas. After last night's game, the players are off until Christmas Day. The players could choose to go back to Philadelphia and fly the team charter to Denver on Christmas and attend a 2-hour practice that night, or they could go wherever they wanted and meet up with the team in Denver in time for the 8 p.m. practice.

Drexel midfielder Nick Saputo is much more at home doing the dirty work of collecting ground balls rather than scoring goals. But as halftime approached Sunday in Drexel's clash with neighborhood rival Penn in the first round of the NCAA Division I lacrosse tournament, the sluggish Dragons trailed the Quakers, 6-4. Saputo helped provide the shot in the arm the Dragons needed, scoring two of the Dragons' three goals in the final 17 seconds of...

With the unmitigated disaster of Four Rooms and the critical shelling that greeted From Dusk to Dawn, the hitherto white-hot Quentin Tarantino has been taking his lumps. Tarantino should thank the makers of Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead, for it is a black crime comedy that makes us keenly feel his absence. The movie and pop-culture influences in Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction always make for lively arguments. Perhaps one day his influence on other young directors will be the subject of film-school graduate studies; Things to Do in Denver should furnish ample material.

The Montgomery County commissioners have released details of their Coopers & Lybrand study comparing the economic and demographic features of the four regions, including Philadelphia, where Lockheed Martin is considering scaling down or closing its AstroSpace divisions. The commissioners are hoping that the 42-page study trumpeting the area's assets will prevent the defense industry firm - the county's second largest employer - from shuttering its King of Prussia facility, thus sparing about 5,000 jobs.

To Antonio McDyess, the game meant nothing. He performed as if it meant everything. McDyess had 25 points, 10 rebounds, six blocks and four steals as the Nuggets, playing for the first time since the school shooting in suburban Denver, beat Golden State, 96-84, last night. The Nuggets postponed Tuesday's game against Portland because of the tragedy that resulted in 15 deaths. Denver players wore black patches on their jerseys to honor the victims. "I thought about it all week," McDyess said.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike Holmgren yesterday said he lost track of downs just before Denver scored the winning touchdown late in Sunday's Super Bowl. With 1:47 left in the game and the score tied, 24-24, the Broncos had a second-and-goal situation from the Green Bay 1 when Holmgren ordered his defense to let the Broncos score. At the time, the Packers had two timeouts remaining. Holmgren told the New York Daily News that he ordered the defense to yield because he believed it was first down, and was afraid Denver would be able to kill most of the clock if it kicked a field goal on fourth down.
