MINNEAPOLIS - Sunday was a day of rest and no practice for the Clippers, giving Glen Davis time to reflect on his run-in with Coach Doc Rivers and allowing Blake Griffin time to get more treatment for back spasms. The drama-filled moments from Saturday night's game between the Clippers and Houston Rockets also included reserve guard Jamal Crawford suffering from a sore and tight left Achilles' tendon. Davis had gotten into an argument with Rivers during the game Saturday night and was eventually escorted off the bench and into the Clippers' locker room after Rivers told the team's security to remove his backup power forward.

HOUSTON - Losing All-Star power forward Blake Griffin with back spasms had already put the Clippers in a tough predicament, but it got more difficult when Coach Doc Rivers grew so upset at Glen Davis that he had the backup forward escorted from the game. The Clippers just pressed on, walloping the Houston Rockets yet again, 118-107, Saturday at Toyota Center, to sweep their four-game season series. Even with Griffin and Davis back in the locker room, the Clippers effort in the face of adversity.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Mark Davis, owner of the Oakland Raiders, has acknowledged the possibility of moving the franchise back to Los Angeles if Oakland can't get its act together on a new stadium. That's interesting. But if words translated into actions, the L.A. market would have landed an NFL team or two 15 years ago. More than half of the league's 32 teams have been linked to L.A. at one point or another, as in, Team 'X' could potentially move if it can't get a stadium deal where it is. At the league's annual meetings Monday, Davis said his patience is wearing thin over the Coliseum City project, the proposed redevelopment of the 850 acres in and around the Oakland Coliseum to create new homes for the Raiders, Athletics and Golden State Warriors.

Finally, the Clippers had two days off with no practice and no games and finally, Glen Davis had a chance to get his off-the-court life in order. Davis had been a solid frontcourt player for the Clippers since he was signed as a free agent Feb. 24, backing up center DeAndre Jordan and forward Blake Griffin. But with Tuesday and Wednesday off before the Clippers went back to practice Thursday and Friday, Davis said he went to visit his wife and daughter rather than stay in L.A. to get settled.

Gov. Jerry Brown has 150 days to decide whether Manson family member Bruce Davis -- convicted for his role in the murder of two men in 1969 -- should go free after he was issued a grant of parole. Davis was convicted in 1972 for his role in the murders of ranch hand Donald “Shorty” Shea, who also worked as a Hollywood stuntman, and aspiring musician Gary Hinman. Brown blocked his release last year, concluding that Davis, who was 26 at the time of the killings, still posed a threat to society.

The word is getting out: Alemany's Dominic Davis is fast. The junior running back-cornerback recorded an electronic 40-yard time of 4.40 seconds on Sunday when top high school football players were getting tested at a Nike combine. "That's blazing," Alemany Coach Dean Herrington said. It means college coaches will be looking closely at Davis, because they want speed on their teams. Davis ran a 10.83 100 meters last week.
