So this is what the Clippers look like when they share the ball? They opened Wednesday's game against Atlanta with guns blazing from all corners of the court, a balanced scoring blitz which helped them lead by as many as nine points in the first quarter and enter halftime with a 50-42 advantage. At the end of the first, Chris Paul and Mo Williams had five points apiece and Caron Butler, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan each added four points. As a team, they shot 70.6% from the field.  The only problem for the Clippers was that the Hawks weren't missing either.

Jamal Crawford sat toward the end of the Clippers' bench during a game Saturday night against the Atlanta Hawks, his left leg wrapped in ice, the pain in his strained calf too much for him to play in the second half. He had given the Clippers 9 minutes 35 seconds of playing time in the first half, but was unable to go any more even though Crawford and the Clippers said the shooting guard didn't reinjure himself. Crawford is not expected to play Monday night against the Phoenix Suns at Staples Center and may not play the rest of the week.

NEW YORK - Russell Wilson sat quietly at his Seattle Seahawks locker before a recent practice, and carefully used a felt-tip marker to write a word on his taped wrist. In block letters: POISE. Evidently, even he needs a reminder, although in his second season and on the verge of the second Super Bowl in Seahawks history, Wilson is more poised than NFL quarterbacks far older and more experienced. In fact, he might wear reminders on his wrist, but Wilson does not wear his heart on his sleeve.

Tice is co-owner of the 3-year-old colt Midnight Hawk, who is two for two after taking the Grade III, $100,000 Sham Stakes by 13/4 lengths over Kristo on Saturday at Santa Anita. It was the first stakes for 3-year-olds during the winter-spring meeting and gained Midnight Hawk, a son of Midnight Lute, 10 points toward a possible start in the Kentucky Derby.
