VANCOUVER, Canada - Three games remaining in the regular season on the yellow brick road to the playoffs, and the Kings finally catch a break in the schedule. They don't play again until Wednesday. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter is always mulling schedules and timetables - maybe it's the lasting influence of his early farm years - and he pondered what to do during the three days between games. One consideration was having a mini-camp in scenic Banff, Alberta, before Wednesday's game at Calgary.

Kent Bazemore cried a little bit. Nick Young planted his face in a towel for a long time. Sunday was rough on them, the latest two injured Lakers. In another sign of a bad season, the Lakers have more hurt players (eight) than healthy ones (seven). Bazemore crumpled to the court and rolled around after sustaining a sprained right foot in the second quarter against the Clippers. The weird part was how it happened: Bazemore was merely dribbling near the three-point line, trying to keep the ball away from Darren Collison , when he felt a pop. He was helped off the court and scheduled for an MRI exam Monday.

It was billed as a guided tour for downtown residents, church and business groups and elected officials to see skid row for themselves. As the group headed out on foot from L.A.'s Midnight Mission, it was confronted by demonstrators whistling, drumming and chanting: "You're not welcome here!" and "You're the problem!" That was in June 2011. A year later, Deborah Burton, a community organizer who was once homeless, was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery on two tour leaders.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Monday night's NCAA championship game at AT&T Stadium sets up as a matchup of over-achieving seedlings. If you didn't know the history you'd say it was nice to see the "little guys" finally breaking through the plexiglass backboard. This No. 15 combination platter is the highest total number to play for the title since the NCAA started seeding in 1979. NCAA BRACKET: Track how UConn and Kentucky got to the final Poor old No. 7 Connecticut hasn't won an NCAA title since 2011 and luckless No 8 Kentucky hasn't hoisted a banner since 2012.

Airbnb is all the talk on Wall Street. Its thirtysomething founders were nearly broke six years ago. Now it seems likely they will soon become billionaires. Their company, which connects 600,000 apartment dwellers and homeowners in 160 countries with millions of people seeking cheap lodging online, is closing a new round of private funding, and it is expected to be valued at $10 billion or more by the end of April. In one night alone during 2013, Airbnb boasted 250,000 guests staying in its members' apartments and houses.

Now that open enrollment under the Affordable Care Act is over for this year, healthcare consumers can begin to put their insurance policies to work. For many, it may be a challenge. A year ago, Norm Wilkinson, 61, retired after 35 years as a Teamster and signed on to a retiree health plan. He figured he'd enjoy the same comprehensive coverage he'd had for years, but soon learned that prescription drugs weren't covered. "I did not get a prescription drug plan with it, and that was the big killer," said Wilkinson, a resident of Whittier.

Over the last six years, roaring bears and raging bulls both have had their turns to be right about financial markets. But investing success in the next market phase could be far more about pinpointing individual opportunities than riding a wave. This is when it should pay for a money manager to have maximum flexibility: the option to go almost anywhere with investors' dollars in search of decent returns. That could include stocks, bonds, real estate or commodities, for example.

Matthew Vella certainly doesn't look like a troll. Vella is the regular-guy chief executive of Acacia Research Corp., which calls itself a patent outsource licensing company. The Newport Beach firm links up with inventors who fear that others are elbowing in on their patents or whose patents aren't making the money they could. "Our clients often can't afford to hire specialists that will help turn those patents into money," Vella said. "They are not looking to sell them necessarily, but if they are looking to get money because people are infringing their patents, we want to be their partner.

The Clippers lost their season opener to the Lakers by 13 points. In the next two games against the Lakers, the Clippers won by 36 points and 48 points. The 48-point margin of victory was the largest in Clippers' franchise history and the largest loss in Lakers' history. "Obviously that was a huge wakeup call for us, that first game," Paul said. "It's funny because Doc [Rivers ] says it to us just about every game. You're just not going to walk in there and win just because you've got Clippers going across your shirt.
