MIAMI AT CHICAGO: Sunday at 10 a.m. PDT . TV: Channel 7 . The Indiana Pacers suddenly aren't looking like the only threat to Miami in the Eastern Conference. Chicago's stunning surge since Derrick Rose was lost for the season and Luol Deng was traded to Cleveland is rooted in the collective toughness of the players left behind and the coaching brilliance of Tom Thibodeau. Center Joakim Noah has elevated himself into a most-valuable-player candidate, point guard D.J. Augustin has played like an All-Star and power forward Taj Gibson has generated a starter's production coming off the bench.

Ellen DeGeneres was hired, some believed, in part because of her deep following on Twitter. On Sunday, she proved why that was a savvy move.

DeGeneres, who boasts more than 25 million Twitter followers, tweeted several photos from the Dolby Theatre and tried a number of social-media gambits - most notably,...

Avonne Penaflor and Anna Lim entered the doors of the Sriracha factory in Irwindale, took a deep breath and started to giggle. They had caught wind of an odor that has allegedly inflamed respiratory conditions, launched lawsuits and made legions of fans hungry. "It's very nice, actually," said Lim, 38, of Azusa. Huy Fong Foods, the creator of Sriracha hot sauce, has been closed to the public for more than 30 years, fearing that competitors would steal trade secrets. But after months of Irwindale residents and city officials accusing the sauce maker of flooding their city with an offensive spicy odor, the notoriously private company has thrown open its doors.

SOCHI, Russia - The women's Olympic downhill at Rosa Khutor did not end Wednesday with American Julia Mancuso winning her fifth Olympic medal and second of these Games. It did not end with race favorite Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany winning her fourth gold medal in her seventh Olympic start. The downhill ended in, of all things, a tie. FRAMEWORK: Best images from Sochi It seems difficult to believe that a sport that relies on precision timing provided by Omega could not settle the difference between two racers, covering 1.7 miles, down a mountain.

  If it was a Finals preview, you would want it to go nine games. Or maybe 11. There were times Wednesday when the Clippers and Miami Heat were as indistinguishable as actor Michael Douglas and Heat President Pat Riley, shown on the Staples Center scoreboard seated next to each other. There was highlight after highlight after highlight. And that was just the first three times LeBron James touched the ball. The Clippers' Blake Griffin and Jamal Crawford kept the video replay crew busy with two-handed dunks and reverse layups and wild three-pointers while falling down.

Finally, the Clippers are back playing at home at Staples Center for a while. The bad news is that is that they start their five-game homestand Wednesday night against the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat and LeBron James. The Clippers will be playing just their third game at home out of their last 12 games. They have lost two of their last three games but have defeated the Heat five times in a row in Los Angeles. The Clippers have played well at home, having won their last seven games at Staples Center and are 20-3 there this season.

  Clippers Coach Doc Rivers couldn't complain about his team's effort Wednesday night, not when he had Blake Griffin, Jamal Crawford, DeAndre Jordan, Darren Collison and Matt Barnes all playing 37 or more grueling minutes. Rivers didn't like that his team turned the ball over 20 times and that the Clippers' defense came and went at times, leaving him to live with Los Angeles' 116-112 defeat to the Miami Heat at Staples Center. Rivers' team was down by as many as 19 points in the second quarter and by 17 in the third but made a game of it by getting to within two points late before losing.
