Jane Kean, best known for her role as Trixie, the long-suffering wife of Ed Norton on the 1960s TV revival of "The Honeymooners" with Jackie Gleason and Art Carney, has died. She was 90. Kean, a resident of Toluca Lake, died Tuesday at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank of complications from a fall. Her niece, Deidre Wolpert, confirmed her death. Although she played diverse roles during a career spanning more than four decades, including performing at London's Palladium before moving to Broadway, Kean said her role in "The Honeymooners" was the character that most people remembered.

When: 4:30 PST. Where: The Palace. On the air: TV: TWC SportsNet, TWC Deportes; Radio: 710, 1330. Records: Lakers 8-8; Pistons 6-9. Record vs. Pistons: 1-0. Update: The Pistons are a bizarre mix of players with some equally perplexing results (4-4 at home, with losses to Atlanta and a depleted Chicago team). They added free agents Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith but their leading scorer is a holdover, reserve guard Rodney Stuckey (16.6 points a game)

Sharon Pullard sat in her car last August and watched her oldest son walk away. She had just dropped him off at school, and as parents often do on their children's first day of kindergarten or college, she let her gaze linger on his receding figure. Suddenly, she burst into tears. "I started getting flashbacks," she said. Her son was no longer a child. He was 21 years old. In his fourth year at USC. It didn't matter. Sharon thought about the young man who stoically endured in high school after his father's death.

Steve Nash doesn't know when he'll come back, how he'll feel or whether he can be an effective player again. There is one certainty for the Lakers point guard: He's not contemplating retirement because of persistent back pain that has sidelined him for nearly two weeks. "No, not at all," Nash said Friday of rumors he is considering calling it a career long before his contract expires at the end of next season. "I don't know where that came from. "For me, I realize I have about 18 months left of basketball and I want the most out of this that I can possibly get and I don't know if that's going to be one game or the vast majority of what's left, but I have a long life without basketball, so I don't want to give in too soon.

No one near the welterweight division can hit as hard as Manny Pacquiao. No one near the welterweight division can take punches better than Brandon Rios. The prospect of an action-packed fight between the two is why the 27-year-old Rios (31-1-1, 23 knockouts) landed the main event against Pacquiao on Saturday night in Macao. The bout is also expected to answer if Pacquiao, 34, still has punching power after his stunning knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in December. "To everyone who thinks I'm an easy opponent for Pacquiao, a walking punching bag, this is my fight," Rios said recently while training near his home in Oxnard.

HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Over the last 75 laps or so of Sunday's Ford EcoBoost 400, it became increasingly apparent either Denny Hamlin or Dale Earnhardt Jr. would not end the Sprint Cup season winless. Five lead changes spanning the final 44 laps at Homestead-Miami Speedway were between Hamlin and Earnhardt. Hamlin in the No. 11 FedEx Express Toyota retook it for good on Lap 244 and left Earnhardt to duel Matt Kenseth for second place Hamlin's second win at Homestead-Miami (23rd of his career)
