PHOENIX - They talked about their intense defense in the second half, about how Matt Barnes' big third quarter carried the Clippers, about DeAndre Jordan's big block in the fourth when the game hung in the balance and about Blake Griffin's clutch shot. When the Clippers added all that up, they had walked away with a 104-96 victory over the stubborn Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night at US Airways Center. After giving up 55 points in the first half, the Clippers held Phoenix to 41 points in the second half.

Another injury took down another Clipper, leaving them short-handed in the backcourt after Jamal Crawford suffered a strained left calf. The Clippers pressed on, overcoming the injury to pull out a 101-93 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night at Staples Center. With Crawford in the locker room in the second half, Darren Collison started in his place. Collison scored 17 of his 19 points in the second half to spark the victory, but Clippers Coach Doc Rivers admitted after the game that he was concerned about Crawford's injury.

Mr. Smiley Face came to town, providing DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers a chance to do their usual thing against the Houston Rockets. Have a nice day. Dwight Howard actually didn't look happy for most of the Rockets' 101-93 loss Wednesday night at Staples Center, perhaps mindful that he was not the best defensive player on the floor. That title went to Jordan, a 6-foot-11, 265-pound block of granite with an equally massive accelerator. He was citius , altius , fortius without needing a passport to Sochi.

NEW ORLEANS  - After the Clippers signed free-agent forward Glen Davis to a contract Monday in New Orleans, Coach Doc Rivers said they'll continue "tracking" players who are bought out of their contracts or waived. Davis didn't play against the Pelicans because he won't take his physical until Tuesday in L.A.; he might play Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets at Staples Center. The Clippers have a 13-man roster, giving them room to sign two more players. There have been reports that small forward Danny Granger might get a buyout from the Philadelphia 76ers.

NEW ORLEANS - There was no letdown by the Clippers. Instead, the Clippers followed up an emotional win on Sunday with a 123-110 victory over the struggling New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night at the Smoothie King Center. After their big win in Oklahoma City a day earlier, it would have been easy for the Clippers to overlook the Pelicans. BOX SCORE: Clippers 123, Pelicans 110 But with seven players scoring in double figures, the Clippers didn't let that happen.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - By no means is Clippers Coach Doc Rivers going to let anyone simply out-recruit him for the services of forward Glen "Big Baby" Davis . After the Orlando Magic bought out Davis' contract Friday, it became clear that Rivers, who coached Davis with the Boston Celtics, and the Clippers strongly believe Davis will come to Los Angeles. But the Brooklyn Nets and their veterans Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce also are making a pitch for Davis. Rivers says he won't take for granted that Davis will be a Clipper if he clears waivers Monday and becomes an unrestricted free agent.

The Clippers made a pair of minor trades shortly before Thursday's deadline, dealing veteran forward Antawn Jamison to the Atlanta Hawks and reserve center Byron Mullens to the Philadelphia 76ers in moves that brought them closer to the luxury tax threshold while opening a pair of roster spots. They traded Jamison and an undisclosed sum of cash to Atlanta for the rights to Cenk Akyol, a 6-foot-7 forward who was the Hawks' second-round draft pick in 2005 but has never appeared in the NBA and now plays in Turkey.
