Most NBA players still get excited to play in Madison Square Garden. Golden State's Stephen Curry channeled that extra energy into a NBA season-high 54-point performance Wednesday night. Curry was 18 of 28 from the field and finished one shy of the NBA record with 11 three-pointers made in 13 attempts. Unfortunately for him, the Warriors lost to the New York Knicks, 109-105. Playing all 48 minutes, Curry finished with seven assists and six rebounds while passing his previous career best of 42 points, and eclipsing Kevin Durant's 52-point performance that had been the best in the NBA this season.

Nobody got hurt. The Lakers didn't lose by 50. There are only three games left. These were reasons for the Lakers to celebrate a 112-95 loss Friday to Golden State at Staples Center. The season that won't ever end is down to a handful of days. Nobody's complaining. No crying. Tension was sucked out of this season a month ago, if not longer. BOX SCORE: Golden State 112, Lakers 95 There's a lot of losing, though, six in a row for the Lakers (25-54) after a late run fell short, extending their team record for losses in a season.

Lakers 118 - Warriors 116 (end of regulation) The Lakers may have won their most important game of the season, but in the process lost Kobe Bryant to a variety of painful-looking leg injuries. After hurting his knee in the third quarter, Bryant left the game for good with 3:08 with a foot/leg injury. Carl Landry missed a wide open jumper and Stephen Curry's three-quarter-court heave just barely missed at the buzzer and the Lakers escaped with a 118-116 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Kobe Bryant was annoyed. Really, really annoyed. The Lakers traded Steve Blake before the February deadline, immediately sending a dissatisfied Bryant to Twitter. He said he was "not cool" with the trade "AT ALL," hitting caps lock for effect and also calling Blake a "psycho competitor. " Blake is still appreciative two months later. He'll play with his new team, Golden State, against the Lakers in his return Friday to Staples Center. "Whenever you have support like that from a teammate, it feels great, especially from one of the greatest," Blake said in a phone interview.

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER AT GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS 7:30 p.m. Thursday. TV: TNT. Details: These were thought to be teams passing in the night, and the Western Conference standings, before Russell Westbrook's early return restored the Thunder's elite status. Now it's the Warriors who have injury concerns after Stephen Curry's bruised left ankle forced him to sit out a game against San Antonio. Golden State is clearly not the same offensive force without its star point guard who is averaging 18.6 points and 9.2 assists.

NEW ORLEANS - The kids are taking over the place. You can't toss a string of beads in the French Quarter this weekend without hitting a wide-eyed NBA All-Star. The festivities have become one extended Rising Stars Challenge between the six players making their All-Star game debuts Sunday at the Smoothie King Center and the five back for a second appearance. At 20, Anthony Davis can't even enjoy one of those oversized fruity alcoholic drinks so popular on Bourbon Street. Generation Next includes first-timers Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard, DeMar DeRozan, John Wall, Paul Millsap and Davis in addition to second-time participants Joakim Noah, Roy Hibbert, Paul George, Kyrie Irving and James Harden.

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant was elected by fans to his 16th All-Star game, second-most in NBA history, and Clippers forward Blake Griffin was also named Thursday as a starter for the Western Conference. But it was somewhat of a surprise that Clippers point guard Chris Paul, a six-time All Star, wasn't voted in as a starter for the West team. He was beaten out by Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors' sharpshooting guard, who received 1,047,281 votes to make his first All-Star team, and Bryant, who received 988,884 votes.

It really is a bizarro world among L.A.'s NBA teams when you consider that nearly four years ago, Clippers fans marched outside Staples Center proclaiming unrequited love for free agent LeBron James as the Lakers shrugged on their way to another title. Now it's the free-falling Lakers who are pining for James while the Clippers roll their eyes amid their latest free-agent acquisition. Former All-Star forward Danny Granger became a Clipper on Friday, only a few days after Glen " Big Baby " Davis opted to do the same despite ample opportunities to play elsewhere.

The Lakers began their rebuilding process Wednesday, sending versatile veteran guard Steve Blake to Golden State, The Times has learned. The Lakers received young, seldom-used shooting guards Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks in return for Blake. The deal saves the Lakers almost $1 million in salary the rest of the season and about $3 million in luxury taxes. Blake seemed stunned by the trade, which was finalized a little more than an hour before the Lakers played the Houston Rockets at Staples Center.

The Western Conference coaches rendered a split decision Thursday on the Clippers when it came to selecting All-Star reserves: Chris Paul was in, DeAndre Jordan was out. The coaches picked Paul to play in the All-Star game Feb. 16 in New Orleans but left out Jordan despite lobbying by Clippers Coach Doc Rivers for inclusion of the NBA's leading rebounder. Paul has not played since Jan. 3 because of a separated right shoulder that was expected to sideline him for six weeks, but he indicated Thursday that he intended to participate alongside teammate Blake Griffin, who had already been selected a West starter in fan voting.

CHARLOTTE, N.C.  - Chris Paul casually walked up to a basket during the Clippers' shoot-around Wednesday morning and took a left-handed shot, smiling as the ball floated toward the rim, his teammates laughing at his attempt. It was clear from that shot that Paul still hasn't healed from the right shoulder separation that has put him out of commission since Jan. 3. But Paul was back with his teammates on the road for the first time since the Clippers left Jan. 16, back wearing workout gear even if he knows he won't be playing.
