MIAMI AT CLIPPERS When: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. TV: ESPN. The Clippers hope this isn't the last time they see the Heat this season. Another meeting could take place only in the Finals, foreign territory to the Clippers but somewhere Miami has been three consecutive times. The Heat beat the Clippers, 102-97, in the teams' first meeting this season by repeatedly trapping Chris Paul and forcing five turnovers. The Clippers won't have Paul this time because he is still recovering from a separated shoulder, but they have won 11 of their 15 games since he was sidelined.

Dodger Stadium in mid-January is peaceful after sundown. The distinctive scoreboard is barely visible through the twilight, the air is cool, and the quiet is almost a presence itself. "We've heard coyotes howling late at night," Dan Craig says. A ballpark at rest is a pleasant place to be … except this one isn't slumbering. It has an NHL-size hockey rink set in the infield, a beach volleyball court in left field, a small pond in right field, an in-line/street hockey area, and two performance stages waiting to be completed.

PHILADELPHIA -- Even after seeing Miami Heat center Greg Oden on the court for the first time, the plan still remains the same. Oden made his first appearance in more than four years Wednesday against the Washington Wizards, but the Heat are continuing to treat his comeback with patience. He did not practice Thursday at Temple University and his status is uncertain for Friday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. “We're going to stick with the plan,” Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra said.

Edited to a crisp 82 minutes and set almost entirely within the walk-in appliance after which it's named, "Freezer" is an economical yet expansive thriller that kicks off immediately when Robert (Dylan McDermott, looking ripped) gets tossed inside. An average Joe (who nonetheless makes short work of the plastic ties binding his wrists and ankles), he soon learns the motive for his abduction when two Russki heavies burst in looking for some missing money. Some $8 million, to be exact.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Jonas Hiller needed 28 saves to win his 13th consecutive game Saturday, but his night was decided by watching his team strike for three goals in a 5-minute 10-second span during the second period. "When the guys score four, five goals every night, it's not too tough to win as a goalie," Hiller said. By beating the Phoenix Coyotes, 5-3, at Jobing.com Arena to sweep the five-game season series against their division rival, the Ducks extended their team record of scoring four or more goals to six consecutive games, and improved their NHL-leading record to 34-8-5.
