The NBA's wild, wild Western Conference is on the verge of another seismic shift, with league sources confirming last night that the Miami Heat and Phoenix Suns were close to a trade that would send Shaquille O'Neal to the Suns in exchange for forward Shawn Marion and guard Marcus Banks. The deal would mean a dramatic change in the way the run-and-gun Suns play, with the 35-year-old O'Neal a classic half-court big man. But Phoenix, looking at bigger teams it would have to play in the postseason, knew it had to add size in the post to compete.

FOR THE FIRST time since 1996, the Sixers will be making the opening pick of the NBA draft when they tab their selection on Thursday. This was part of former general manager Sam Hinkie's plan, but now it is being overseen by Bryan Colangelo, who was brought in as president of basketball operations in April - shortly after Hinkie resigned his post amid speculation his role was going to be diminished. Colangelo, who turned 51 earlier this month, will be commanding his 19th draft; he was the general manager in Phoenix for 11 seasons and held the same role for the Toronto Raptors for another seven.

Red Auerbach is again the Boston Celtics' team president, a title he held for 27 years before it was given to former coach Rick Pitino. "We thought it was right and proper," Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said yesterday. "It was returning it to its rightful owner, in a sense. " The 84-year-old Auerbach was head coach of the Celtics from 1950-66, winning nine NBA titles. He served as general manager from 1950-84, and president from 1970-97. When Pitino arrived in 1997, Auerbach became vice chairman of the board and Pitino assumed duties as president.

Steve Nash was back in MVP form, and the three-pointers were falling like a welcome desert rain for Phoenix. That combination spelled a one-sided end to the playoff run of the Los Angeles Clippers and sent the Suns to the Western Conference finals for the second year in a row. Nash, benefiting from 3 days of rest after 12 games in 25 days, had 29 points - including 4-for-5 on three-pointers - and 11 assists to lead the Suns to a 127-107, Game...

Amare Stoudemire scored 25 points and Shawn Marion had 17 points and 20 rebounds, then sat out the fourth quarter as the Phoenix Suns won their 13th in a row with a 131-102 rout of the depleted Minnesota Timberwolves last night. The Suns became the eighth team in NBA history to have two winning streaks of at least 13 games in a season. Phoenix won a franchise-record 15 straight from Nov. 20 to Dec. 19. The Timberwolves were without their top two scorers, Kevin Garnett and Ricky Davis, both on one-game suspensions because of an incident in Friday night's double-overtime win over Detroit.

Leandro Barbosa scored 19 points in relief of foul-plagued Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns set a team record for best start to a season with a 111-94 victory over the visiting Orlando Magic last night. The Suns improved to an NBA-best 18-3, their finest start in the franchise's 37-year history. Phoenix has won 14 of 15 for the first time in eight seasons. Quentin Richardson scored 26 points, including 6-for-12 on three-pointers, to lead the NBA's highest-scoring team to its fourth 120-plus-point game of the season.

Make it 15 in a row and counting for the Phoenix Suns. Amare Stoudemire dominated Toronto with 28 points and 10 rebounds in 28 minutes, and the Suns set a franchise record with their 15th consecutive victory last night in a 115-98 victory over the visiting Raptors. The Suns try to extend the NBA's longest winning streak in seven seasons at Denver tonight. Stoudemire was 11-for-14 from the field and sat out the final 15 minutes in arguably his most impressive outing since he returned after missing all but three games of last season following microfracture knee surgery.

Elton Brand and the Clippers became the second team from Los Angeles to take the Phoenix Suns to the limit in these playoffs. Unlike the Lakers, the Clippers will take some momentum into Game 7. Brand had 30 points and 12 rebounds, Corey Maggette came off the bench to score 13 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, and the Clippers beat the visiting Suns, 118-106, last night to even the Western Conference semifinal series at three games...

Kevin Garnett blocked Shawn Marion's short jumper at the buzzer to preserve the Minnesota Timberwolves' 103-101 victory over the Suns in Phoenix last night. The Suns complained vehemently that it was goaltending, but it was to no avail, and Minnesota had its first victory in five tries against Phoenix. Garnett scored Minnesota's last five points to finish with 19, but missed the second of two free throws with 14.6 seconds to go. The Suns worked the ball down court. Steve Nash got the ball inside to Marion, who went up for what would have been the tying basket from about 8 feet, and Garnett soared to knock it down.

IT WAS LONG after the whistle, but Michael Carter-Williams still blocked the shot and smacked Jerami Grant upside the head. No referee intervened. Grant winced . . . and smiled. The moment was a metaphor for what Grant's career will most likely be. He will take all sorts of abuse. He often will be ignored. He'll have to grin and bear it. If the Sixers are lucky, there will be plenty of reason to grin. With the 39th pick in the draft last summer, they might have stolen a finishing piece in their reconstruction.

DALLAS - This one had to hurt. The 76ers had the Dallas Mavericks down. But in end, too many missed layups and poor foul shooting led to the Sixers' seventh loss in nine games. The Mavs took their first lead late in the third quarter and went on to seize a 97-94 victory Monday night at the American Airlines Center. "We shot ourselves in the foot tonight," Sixers center Spencer Hawes said. "I don't know how many layups, free throws, a combination of the two we missed. "But if you can't make those, you don't deserve to win. " The Sixers (5-7)

The guy who started all this last season is just sitting by this year, watching the Western Conference continue its arms-and-legs race. "It don't amaze me," Allen Iverson said Friday. "Teams are just making decisions trying to get better, regardless of what decision that is. They're trying to win a championship. " Iverson was the first superstar sent west, in December 2006, when the 76ers ended their 10-year relationship with him and traded him to the Nuggets. In the 14 months since, many contending teams in the conference have made similar reaches for a superstar - or, at least, former superstars - setting up a wild second half of the season.

Shaquille O'Neal doesn't want to slow the Phoenix Suns. That's why he may make them wait a few more days before playing his eagerly awaited first game debut in purple and orange. O'Neal, who is learning a new offense and working his way into shape after a hip injury, is unlikely to play when the Suns visit Golden State tonight. After returning from the Bay Area, the team will decide whether O'Neal will play against Dallas tomorrow night in Phoenix. "I want to be a little more in tune before I step out on the court, because as you watch this team without me, they're like a great flowing machine," O'Neal said after practice yesterday at US Airways Center.

For the second time in four years, what was once unthinkable occurred with swiftness: Shaquille O'Neal, the dominant big man of his era, was traded, with the Miami Heat sending him to the Phoenix Suns yesterday for forward Shawn Marion and guard Marcus Banks. The stunning move continued a raising of the stakes in the NBA's Western Conference, with the Suns gambling that the 35-year-old O'Neal has something left after showing severe signs of aging the last couple of seasons, and also betting that O'Neal can meld his half-court game with the Suns' fast-paced, seven-seconds-to-shoot philosophy.

Shawn Marion made only one shot, the only one Phoenix absolutely had to have. Marion dropped in a baseline floater with 1.1 seconds left for his lone field goal, and the Suns burned host Cleveland with a season-high 17 three-pointers in last night's 110-108 win over the Cavaliers. Marion, averaging 15.9 points, was 0-for-3 from the floor before he took a pass in the corner from Boris Diaw, faked his way past center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, and as LeBron James rushed toward him, arched in his shot on the run. After calling a timeout, Cleveland had trouble getting the ball inbounds before Damon Jones fired up a three-pointer that was way off at the horn.

Shawn Marion had 16 points and 11 rebounds and matched his season-high with five steals. Boris Diaw had 14 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.
