THE PROPOSED move of Doc Rivers from the Boston Celtics' bench to the Los Angeles Clippers' remained in limbo over the weekend because of the teams' ongoing haggling over prized young guard Eric Bledsoe, according to sources with knowledge of the talks. Sources told ESPN that the Celtics will not consent to allow Rivers out of the final 3 years and $21 million on his contract unless they receive both Bledsoe and Clippers center DeAndre Jordan in a corresponding trade for Boston's Kevin Garnett, along with at least one future first-round pick as compensation for Rivers.

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.

BOSTON - Doc Rivers will be the next coach of the Los Angeles Clippers if the NBA approves the rare but not unprecedented trade of an active coach, a Boston Celtics official told the Associated Press last night. The deal would bring Boston a first-round draft pick in 2015, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal couldn't be final until a trade call with the NBA office. Rivers, who had 3 years and $21 million left on his contract with the Celtics, must also reach an agreement on a new deal with the Clippers.

When Phoenix visits the 76ers on Friday, there will be plenty of bulletin board material for the home team, thanks to Suns guard Eric Bledsoe. A former player at Kentucky, Bledsoe was asked on SiriusXM Radio which team he would take in a series between his alma mater and the Sixers. "I'm definitely taking Kentucky. . . . I think Philly will probably get maybe one game," Bledsoe said. Sixers veteran Jason Richardson, who has not played since January 2013 because of knee and foot injuries, laughed when he heard those comments.

THE LOS ANGELES Clippers are reportedly still in discussions with the league concerning a trade for New Orleans Hornets star Chris Paul. Sources told ESPN.com that the sides talked late into last night, but had yet to find a workable deal. The NBA, which owns the Hornets, reportedly wants the Clippers' top five available trade assets in return for Paul, who would invoke the 2012-13 option in his contract as part of any trade between the teams to ensure the Clippers would have him for at least two seasons.

NEW YORK - LeBron James scored 32 points, including eight straight to start the fourth quarter, to lead the Miami Heat to an 87-70 win over the New York Knicks on Thursday night - and gain a 3-0 lead in their series. New York, meanwhile, set an NBA postseason record with its 13th straight playoff loss. The Heat held the shorthanded Knicks to eight field goals in the second half and will go for the sweep Sunday. Dwyane Wade added 20 points for the Heat and Mario Chalmers had 19, hitting consecutive three-pointers in the fourth quarter, when the Heat finally brought some beauty to what had been an ugly game.

THE CELTICS keep rolling without Rajon Rondo. Not even a late comeback by one of the NBA's best teams could keep host Boston from beating the Los Angeles Clippers 106-104, on Sunday and improve to 4-0 since a knee injury ended their star point guard's season. "A lot of people say that we don't have a chance to go to the playoffs, we can't do this, we can't do that," starting guard Avery Bradley said. "We know we have each other and we're going to go out there and fight for each other, no matter what, every single night.

THE DAILY frustrations of 76ers coach Brett Brown are plentiful and understandable. One of the most upsetting moments for him during the past seven-game road trip, in which the team won the first two in Florida (Orlando and Miami) but lost the last five on the West Coast, came during a game in Phoenix. The Sixers had just missed a long jump shot and the long rebound took one bounce before landing out of bounds on the sideline. As Phoenix guard Goran Dragic quickly got the ball from the ref and passed into fellow guard Eric Bledsoe, all five Sixers on the court slowly walked down the floor with their backs turned to the ball.

The Phoenix Suns were determined not to be the team that the Sixers got their first win against, that their losing streak ended on. Not after Suns guard Eric Bledsoe said his alma mater, Kentucky, would beat the Sixers in five games of a seven-game series. Not if the Suns want to be a legitimate Western Conference playoff team. A team trying to save face after a teammate's comment and calling itself a playoff contender had to not just beat, but destroy, the winless Sixers. And that's exactly what happened in Friday night's 122-96 setback at Wells Fargo Center.

PHOENIX SUNS guard Eric Bledsoe definitely violated an unwritten code the other day when he said the University of Kentucky would beat the Sixers in a seven-game series. Normally, professional athletes don't publicly mock the tribulations of other professionals in that manner - particularly when they are about to play the offended party, as the Suns will when they visit the Sixers tonight at the Wells Fargo Center. In a normal pro sports environment, you would expect the Sixers to be fired up to punish the Suns tonight for Bledsoe punking them in public - maybe repay him by pulling out a convincing victory.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Coach Brett Brown said the 76ers go into every game thinking they can steal a win. The game against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday gives them a good opportunity to finally do so. The Celtics visit the Wells Fargo Center with a 3-6 record after dropping three straight games to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Phoenix Suns. Meanwhile, the Sixers remain winless through 10 games for the first time since the 1972-73 season, when they started 0-15.
