Familiar problems resurfaced Thursday for the Dodgers and their manager. Brian Wilson again didn't resemble the pitcher he was last season, as he was charged with four runs in the ninth inning of a 7-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. There were problems aside from the continued instability of Wilson, who has already spent 15 days sidelined because of issues with his surgically repaired elbow. BOX SCORE: Philadelphia 7, Dodgers 3 The Dodgers made another costly error, this time in the form of a routine bouncer hitting first baseman Adrian Gonzalez's glove and dribbling into the outfield.

OAKLAND -- The Clippers walked into an angry beehive, thousands of folks wearing bright yellow T-shirts and surrounding them with a roaring buzz. The Clippers walked into a building that is adjacent to the home of the Oakland Raiders and feels every bit like a Raiders end zone, the Black Hole, only deeper. In their first road game of this postseason Thursday night, the Clippers found themselves engulfed by screaming and booing and chanting Oracle Arena fans and a Golden State Warriors team that mirrored every bit of their desperation.

OAKLAND - With two days off before the Clippers played the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA playoffs, reserve guard Jamal Crawford was forced to be careful with his left calf. "I just got treatment, lots and lots of treatment," he said. But Crawford was able to play Thursday night in the best-of-seven series despite a calf injury that's bothering him. "The calf, it limits you a lot," he said. "It happened in the first half of [Game 2] and I pulled myself out. That's when I was actually getting a rhythm, which was weird.

MESA, Ariz. - A buzz ran through the crowd, an accumulation of murmurs and applause that drifted across the pool to where Michael Phelps stood. It was just loud enough to make the swimmer grin as he stepped onto the block. "You heard people starting to get excited," he said. The 1,200 spectators at poolside weren't alone - an entire sport watched intently as the most-decorated athlete in Olympic history began his comeback from retirement this week. With an unprecedented 22 medals from three Games, Phelps is the Michael Jordan of swimming.

DALLAS - The captain is hurt, the goalie is shaken, old demons are at the door. The top-seeded Ducks are now in a three-game fight for survival against an energetic, upset-minded Dallas Stars team that roared back Wednesday for a 4-2 victory to tie the Western Conference first-round playoff series at two games apiece. “It's all about us and our execution,” Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler said. “We're lying if we tell ourselves we've played our best hockey in any one of these four games.

What looked like a routine NFL play wound up leaving a life-altering mark on former Jacksonville linebacker Russell Allen. Allen, 27, who was released by the Jaguars last week, is finished with football. He suffered a stroke on the field in a Week 15 game against Buffalo last season, something he recently revealed to Robert Klemko of TheMMQB.com . He was released after failing a physical. Allen developed a dime-sized dead spot on his cerebellum after a face-to-face collision in the first half with Bills center Eric Wood -- what seemed like a hard but typical hit. "It was strange because it was so routine," Allen told Klemko.

DALLAS -- Ducks forward Teemu Selanne told reporters he won't play Wednesday night after taking just two shots in 10 minutes-plus Monday. The Ducks' fourth line is expected to be Patrick Maroon-Nick Bonino-Kyle Palmieri. Ducks defenseman Mark Fistric expects to replace Robidas and appear in his first game since March 15 following a lower body nerve injury and minor-league conditioning stint last weekend. Rookie goalie Frederik Andersen was first off the ice Wednesday and should make his fourth straight playoff appearance after not playing four consecutive times during the season.

The Kings are the only team in the Western Conference to be mired in a 3-0 playoff hole, which is why there was more talk Wednesday about 2010 than their 2012 Stanley Cup championship resume. There is something special about rallying from an 3-0 series deficit, so extraordinary that it has happened only three times in NHL history. Current Kings Mike Richards and Jeff Carter are members of that select club, having accomplished the feat when they were with the Philadelphia Flyers, who pulled off the trick against the Boston Bruins in 2010.

Picking up where they left off in February, the two teams in Super Bowl XLVIII, Seattle and Denver, open the 2014 NFL season with blockbuster games. The league released its schedule Wednesday, revealing the defending champion Seahawks will play host to Green Bay in the opener Thursday, Sept. 4, and Indianapolis will play at the Broncos in the opening Sunday night game. Packers-Seahawks is a rematch of a 2012 "Fail Mary" game won by Seattle on the final play, a controversial touchdown pass that from every camera angle looked to be an interception by Green Bay. Replacement officials called it a touchdown for the Seahawks, however, and that game proved to be the final straw that ended the officiating lockout.
