  Kobe Bryant had a stomach virus, had trouble keeping anything down all day, and took fluid by intravenous injection before the game. Turns out, it was the rest of the Lakers who played as if they should have been in the infirmary. Bryant was the only Laker to provide any offense in Game 6 of the Lakers' Western Conference first-round playoff series against the Nuggets in Denver on Thursday night. Denver won easily, 113-96, dominating play inside, shooting three-pointers as if they were playing a game of H-O-R-S-E in the driveway and thoroughly dominating every facet of play to force a Game 7 Saturday night at Staples Center.

Playing at Denver on the second night of back-to-back games is considered one of the toughest things to do in the NBA. Even for a streaking team like the Clippers, it figures to be a tall task. The Clippers have won 11 consecutive games, the longest current winning streak in the league. They have tied the 1974-75 Buffalo Braves for the second-longest winning streak in franchise history. The franchise record is 17 games in a row, set by last year's team. But the Clippers play in Denver on Monday night, and they have lost three consecutive games there, the last time on a buzzer-beating three-pointer by Randy Foye.

The Chargers exchanged bravado for humility when rookie John Hendy replaced Wayne Davis as the starting left cornerback. Davis' brashness was replaced by Hendy's modesty. "I'm not an outward type of person," Hendy said, "but I have confidence. I know what I can do and can't do. On the field, I play with a little cockiness, but I don't talk to opposing players. I think I'm a smart player and try to use that to my advantage."

Kobe Bryant will play tonight in Game 6 against Denver after missing the morning shoot-around because of intestinal flu-like symptoms.

Bryant averaged 31.2 points in the first five games of the playoffs, including a 43-point outburst in Game 5. "They said there's no minute restriction," Brown said of Bryant.

The Kansas City Chiefs swaggered into Denver with a defense that had averaged an NFL-best four sacks per game. After four quarters, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning emerged virtually untouched. No sacks, no knockdowns. And that despite his mobility being limited by a high-ankle sprain. “I think to go sackless against the leading sack defense in the NFL, that is a great testament to those guys,” Manning said of his offensive line. “We play them again in two weeks at their place.

The stretch of days the Clippers have off this week may not be enough to help their injured players return any sooner. After the Clippers play Monday night at the Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles has four days off before playing Saturday against the Detroit Pistons at Staples Center. The Clippers won't practice Tuesday or Wednesday. That time off still may not help guards J.J. Redick (bulging disk in back) and Jamal Crawford (strained left calf) return to play. "I don't think it will be because one of them or both of them may not be ready," Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said.

Apparently the Denver Broncos saw a few holes when they reviewed the film of their 43-8 Super Bowl XLVIII loss to the Seattle Seahawks.  On the second day of NFL free agency, the Broncos continued to plug those holes on defense, signing linebacker DeMarcus Ware to a three-year, $30-million contract, with $20 million of the deal guaranteed. The Broncos run a 3-4 defensive alignment, which Ware has played in most of his career. The Broncos also filled other defensive needs Wednesday when they added safety T.J. Ward, formerly of the Cleveland Browns, and Aqib Talib, formerly of the New England Patriots.

The Lakers will probably be mathematically eliminated next week from a playoff spot, four weeks before the regular season ends. That's what happens when you go 10-29 since Dec. 21. But Coach Mike D'Antoni still wants some consistency from them over their final 18 games. They got drilled by the Clippers last week, lost a home game to New Orleans and were no-shows in Denver. Yet they beat Portland and Oklahoma City in the span of seven days. It's fine to be confused.

Champ Bailey will eventually wind up in Canton. But he thought he would stay in Denver a little longer. According to multiple reports, the Denver Broncos intend to release Bailey, a future Hall of Fame cornerback who earned eight of his record 12 Pro Bowl invitations in the Mile High City. Bailey, who met with team brass Wednesday, told the Denver Post that he thought the team might approach him with a renegotiation of his $10-million salary but there was no such offer made. “There were no discussions about it,” he told the newspaper.

DENVER -- The NHL's Olympic break may be over but its effects are lingering for the players who made the long trip home from Sochi last weekend. Kings defenseman Drew Doughty, who joined the team Monday in Denver after helping Canada win a gold medal Sunday, said he was still feeling fatigued three days later. "It's not easy to have whatever, an 11-hour time change, have to fly 11 hours. It's tough to adjust," he said. "I've been falling asleep early at night. And waking up really early in the morning.

DENVER -- Teams often complain about playing in the high altitude in Denver, which is one mile -- or 5,280 feet -- above sea level. The Clippers will see how they will do playing at this high altitude when they face the Denver Nuggets on Monday night at the Pepsi Center. Of course, the Nuggets usually have something to do with teams playing poorly in Denver. The Clippers have lost two consecutive games and 10 of their last 12 in Denver. Jamal Crawford was asked at the Clippers' shoot-around Monday how a player can adjust to playing in Denver's altitude.
