It's just past the NBA's midseason point and just before the All-Star break. What better time to predict this season's award winners? Most Valuable Player Canadian and Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash gives his homeland reason to celebrate, with national icon Wayne Gretzky potentially staining his name with possible involvement in the NHL gambling scandal. Nash should win his second straight MVP trophy, and this one won't be nearly as controversial as last year, when many thought the Miami Heat's Shaquille O'Neal was more deserving.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Lakers waded through a world of hurt, which was what was required if you were going to write the requiem for this middleweight.The Golden State Warriors led them by 12 points in the fourth quarter of this NBA playoff game, and by two three times in the last 2:04 of regulation, but the Lakers caught up every time.Sam Perkins' (19 points) driving layup tied it with two seconds to play in regulation and the Lakers finally beat the visitors in overtime, 124-119, before 17,505 at the Forum.

Awards Most Valuable Player: Much has been made of LeBron James turning the Cleveland Cavaliers into a potential playoff team and Shaquille O'Neal making the Miami Heat a championship contender, but has anyone had more of an impact than Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash? Coach of the Year: Can someone win this honor after starting the season as a TV analyst? While Mike D'Antonio of Phoenix and Nate McMillan of Seattle will get their share of votes, Mike Fratello's return to the sideline has re-energized the Memphis Grizzlies with 22 wins in his 32 games.

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- For the Los Angeles Lakers, Friday was the first night of the rest of their lives, and it wasn't pretty.They started their post-Magic Johnson era by falling, 113-85, to the Phoenix Suns, their worst loss since April 22, 1990, when Pat Riley played the reserves in the regular-season finale at Portland.This time, what remains of their first string absorbed the pounding.James Worthy, trying to step up, came out firing, but missed his first nine shots and wound up four for 22.The Lakers shot 32 percent.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- What Magic Johnson did yesterday when the Los Angeles Lakers squared off with Portland was more than great playmaking -- it was art.The three-time National Basketball Association Most Valuable Player took this opening game of the best-of-seven Western Conference finals into his hands and shaped it into a 111-106 Lakers victory.Johnson finished with 21 assists, but it was the volume of his feeds that carried the day, and their sheer effectiveness."They double-team and I make the pass," said Johnson, who had seven assists in the pivotal fourth quarter.

There are many mysteries in the world, not the least of them the location of Ted Kennedy's pants, but few match up to Byron Scott and the case of the missing jump shot.When I say missing, I mean missing.Missing is the only kind of jump shot he has these days, which is too bad because Byron Scott is supposed to be what they call in basketball a shooting guard. This is especially important in Scott's case because, as you know if you've watched him play, he is not a dribbling guard or a passing guard.

CHICAGO -- If you haven't heard, the hot news from the NBA is that Showtime is now officially known as Slowtime. It seems like while we weren't paying attention, the Lakers -- for years the hippest team in all of sports -- got old, slow and, yes, boring. No wonder Pat Riley, the ex-Lakers coach, gave up his hair gel. What's next: Spike Lee does milk commercials?Here's what happened: The Lakers, always faster than a speeding Porsche, no longer run. In L.A., this couldn't be more shocking than if warm brie didn't run.They don't run, jam or, heck, even jog. They use the clock, is what they do. And they post up players, instead of jumping over them.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- So much for the Magic-Michael Show. One of the most exciting and glamorous NBA Finals in recent years came to a very boring end last night when the Chicago Bulls won their third consecutive game, defeating the Los Angeles Lakers, 97-82.The Bulls now are officially within one game of the title, which they can win Wednesday night in Game 5 at the Forum. In fact, only an unlikely miss of an open shot by Michael Jordan in Game 1 prevented them from a sweep.One thing is certain: The way the Bulls are playing, there is no way the Lakers can win three consecutive games, even if they were healthy.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- The healing process has begun for the Los Angeles Lakers.Only three days removed from Magic Johnson's stunning revelation that he has the AIDS virus and was retiring from the game, the Lakers managed to focus their attention on the court long enough yesterday to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves, 96-86, before 16,833 at the Forum.The Lakers have some healing left to do, but this effort was light years away from the emotional whirlwind they underwent in a Friday night loss at Phoenix.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- One of the more profound differences between Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson is each one's vision of a basketball afterlife.For Johnson, there is no such thing. He has no plans to leave the National Basketball Association. When he retires, he will purchase a team. It's a sure thing.Jordan, however, wants to get as far away from basketball as quickly as he can. And it's a good thing. Because as a potential owner-executive, Jordan makes a great player.It was only about five months ago that Jordan was sniping at general manager Jerry Krause for Krause's inability to improve the Bulls.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Lakers were out-rebounded again. Hey, Rome wasn't built in a day.Rebounding was about the only thing that didn't go their way Friday night in their 106-92 triumph over the Portland Trail Blazers before 17,505 at the Great Western Forum, giving the Lakers a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference final.Game 4 is this afternoon at the Forum.With Vlade Divac emerging from the fog, Sam Perkins continuing his workmanlike play inside, A.C. Green giving them a lift off the bench and the offensive stars -- Magic Johnson, James Worthy and Byron Scott -- producing in bunches, the Lakers pulled away from the Blazers in grand fashion in the second half to coast to the first lopsided victory of the series.
