The Clippers didn't overlook the Suns during their first meeting last December at Staples Center, but Los Angeles was surprised at just how good Phoenix was. The Clippers, who play the Suns on Tuesday night in Phoenix, recalled what happened during that 19-point loss to the Suns. "They killed us," Blake Griffin said after practice Monday. "They dominated almost every aspect. They got all the '50-50' balls. Offensive rebounds. Ran on us. Hit threes. Everything. " The Suns scored 107 points on the Clippers in that game and they shot 12 for 31 (38.7%)

TEMPE, Ariz. - Mike Trout had not wanted to discuss his potential nine-figure payday other than to call the reports of a massive contract extension "pretty funny. " What exactly did he find funny? "The numbers they throw out," Trout said Monday. "It's crazy what people are saying, and throwing out numbers like that. I'm in a spot where I wouldn't have thought I would be before my career was over. " That spot is going to come with a pretty high number, right? "No comment," Trout said with a smile.

SOCHI, Russia -- The U.S. men are still on the alpine clock in Sochi and haven't made very good time. The second Olympic weekend is almost put to bed and the Americans have yet to hang anything resembling a medal around their necks. They are on pace to match the Austrian men, who shockingly failed to win a medal four years ago in Vancouver, Canada. If Bode Miller and his boys are going to get their skis turned around in Sunday's super-giant slalom at Rosa Khutor, though, they'll probably have to go through Norway.

" In a speech Friday meant to quell concerns about U.S. spy practices, Obama said he recognized the unease many Americans have felt in the seven months since former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden began to reveal details about the NSA's activities.

It's all his doing. Cary Agos, the cryptically cool , ambitious Harvard-educated lawyer played by Matt Czuchry on CBS legal drama "The Good Wife," got us here. He's the one that wanted to break free from Lockhart/Gardner, the central law firm in the series, to start his own enterprise. He's the one who cajoled Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) to ditch the partnership she had recently secured -- alongside her former lovaah Will Gardner (Josh Charles) -- to join him. He's the one to send thank-you cards to because in Sunday's episode, aptly titled "Hitting the Fan," everything Cary had set in motion came to a head.
