What's good for Drew Gooden and the Clippers may not be so favorable for the development of DeAndre Jordan . After starting twice and averaging 27 minutes in the first three games after the Clippers traded Marcus Camby , Jordan has seen his playing time plummet since Gooden joined the Clippers. Jordan played 17 minutes Monday against Charlotte and only 15 minutes Wednesday against Detroit. The Clippers won both games, and interim Coach Kim Hughes said Gooden would start at power forward for the foreseeable future.

Talk about versatile. Kansas forward Drew Gooden scores, rebounds, runs the floor with ease. He combines elusive post moves with a feathery jump shot. And he is as comfortable on his grandfather's farm in Finland as he is in Lawrence, Kan., or his family's Bay Area home in Richmond. Gooden's mother's family still lives in Finland, decades after their daughter, Ulla, met an American named Andrew Gooden. He was playing professional basketball overseas and she married him.

After a disappointing Final Four, Kansas forward Drew Gooden might think longer about whether to declare for the NBA draft. "It will be a tough decision," the junior All-American said. "No one wants their college career to end like this. I will have to look at it and deal with it and make a decision later." * Point guard Aaron Miles--one of three freshmen who played a key role for Kansas--recorded a double-double with 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

DALLAS — Dirk Nowitzki was ejected. A 16-point lead had dissolved into a four-point deficit. And that recent 13-game winning streak was looking like something that happened a long, long time ago. But the Dallas Mavericks still had a couple of things going for them. It was Jason Kidd's birthday, and they were playing the Clippers. Kidd scored a season-high 26 points, most of it coming during a game-breaking spurt at the start of the fourth quarter that sent the Mavericks to a 106-96 victory over the Clippers on Tuesday night.

It's an easy-to-spot trend for Andrew Bynum , 22 years old and still learning on the job. The more the Lakers center touches the ball, the more his confidence swells and, typically, the better his stats become. A day after grudgingly losing a tight battle against San Antonio veteran Tim Duncan , Bynum took apart Dallas centers Erick Dampier and Drew Gooden . Bynum made eight of 11 shots, and was fouled on a handful of other shots that led to seven free-throw attempts Wednesday against the Mavericks.

At times, there simply can be too many voices vying for attention, too many (verbal) points being made in the paint. Yes, TMI for DJ. Translation: Too much information for DeAndre Jordan . Chris Kaman was talking about his Clipper colleague, the big-man-in-training, Jordan, who had 10 points and 15 rebounds in their 107-104 victory over the Warriors on Saturday night. "He's got pretty solid hands and he's aggressive. The thing I really like is his heart," Kaman said.
