LOS ANGELES - Having lost three times to the Heat during Miami's historic 24-game winning streak, the 76ers will get a chance to play another streaking team on Thursday.

JACK KEROUAC'S stream of consciousness novel On the Road comes to the screen more or less intact as a not-altogether-satisfying road trip into the Beat Era. The "Motorcycle Diaries" team of director Walter Salles and screenwriter Jose Rivera have made an "unfilmmable" book cinematically coherent, capturing the geographical possibilities, the feel and flavor of this blend of biography and Beatnik history. Sam Riley ("Control") is Sal Paradise, the "witness," the teller-of-the-tale - Kerouac by another name.
