Kobe Bryant sustained a torn Achilles' tendon during a game against Golden State on April 12. But when Bryant collapsed onto the ground with 3:08 left in the fourth quarter, Warriors Coach Mark Jackson apparently initially thought that he was faking an injury. "Even in the midst of going against him, I'm in huddle, I'm saying, 'Don't fall for the okeydoke. He's all right. Don't allow him to take over this game,' not knowing that he was really hurt," Jackson told reporters.

This was what the crowd came to Staples Center to see: Blake Griffin slamming home three consecutive monstrous dunks, each one set up by Chris Paul, in an electrifying sequence in the third quarter of the Clippers' 126-115 victory Thursday over the Golden State Warriors. What the 19,060 fans also saw was the Clippers making Staples Center their home, and not merely because they covered up the Lakers' 16 championship banners with super-sized roll-up photos of their own core players.

"Trust" is a word Clippers Coach Doc Rivers uses a lot. It's something he thinks every team needs and his team still is trying to build. Rivers wants his players to trust in each other. He wants his players to trust in the system. He wants his players to trust in the offense and the defense. "When a team does get it on either end, you can see them play better," Rivers said. "They are free now. They don't have a lot of thought anymore. And that's what we're trying to get on both ends.

  So this is how the Clippers responded to an unexpected season-opening loss. The Clippers opened a big lead, withstood a rally by the Golden State Warriors and showed some resolve in pulling out a 126-115 victory Thursday night. Chris Paul was the main one who played as if he didn't want to start the season 0-2. Paul had 42 points and 15 assists, winding up one point shy of his career high. But it wasn't as if Paul didn't have help, as four of his teammates scored in double figures as the Clippers won their home opener and gave Doc Rivers his first victory as coach.

OAKLAND -- The "Rest Nash" plan began Wednesday. Steve Nash, the NBA's oldest point guard, sat out the second night of consecutive games, a trend that could last the entire Lakers season, according to a person familiar with the situation. Nash, 39, had three points and five assists in 21 minutes of the Lakers' season-opening victory against the Clippers on Tuesday. He would play Wednesday against Golden State only in an emergency -- if point guards Steve Blake or Jordan Farmar were injured.

After opening the season with a stunning opening-night upset of the Clippers on Tuesday night, the Lakers travel to Oakland to play the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday. The Lakers' bench dominated the Clippers in the fourth quarter, allowing the Lakers starters to play light minutes. Steve Nash may sit out against the Warriors, in a move to avoid playing on back-to-back nights.  If so, Jodie Meeks may slide into the starting role with Steve Blake moving from shooting guard to point.

OAKLAND - The Lakers began their "Rest Nash" plan, but the whole team could have sat this one out. Looking nothing like the frantically energized bunch that stunned the Clippers on opening night, the Lakers allowed Golden State within whispering distance of its largest victory ever against them. Klay Thompson had a career-high 38 points and the Warriors pummeled the Lakers, 125-94, Wednesday at Oracle Arena. The lead was as large as 35 before the Warriors' starters sat for good, sparing the Lakers the possibility of experiencing their biggest blowout here (132-93 in 1966)

Doc Rivers said there's going to be a learning curve before the Clippers start playing the way he thinks they can play. "It just takes time," he said. "It's over and over and over again until it's actual trust. I thought last night when things got tough, we actually went back to just kind of making it up and doing our own thing. There's no good defensive team, or offensive team for that matter, that does it randomly. " In the Clippers 116-103 loss to the Lakers in their season opener Tuesday, Rivers pointed out a bunch of things he didn't like, including the Clippers' defense, which permitted the Lakers' bench to roll over them with 76 points, the team's poor rebounding and their energy level.
