During a timeout in Tuesday's game against New Orleans, Kobe Bryant had a talk with Pau Gasol. "I basically told him, dude, especially when I'm not in the game, you just gotta go to the block and not move," Bryant recalled. "When I'm out there, I can slow the game down, call plays off, and just give it to him -- but if I'm not, then listen, you just gotta go to the block and not move. Just stand there. " Gasol reluctantly followed Bryant's advice. "That's not my personality," Gasol said.

The Lakers (40-37) host the New Orleans Hornets (27-50) on Tuesday in a game that is vital to their playoff chances. The Hornets are one of the worst teams in the league, but they're still playing to win games, taking five of their last 10. They gave the Lakers a true scare in early March, pulling ahead by 25 in New Orleans before the Lakers staged a tremendous comeback. Steve Nash is doubtful for Tuesday, with hamstring and hip soreness. With the Utah Jazz ahead in the standings by half a game, the Lakers simply can't afford to lose to the Hornets.

It could have been the Lakers' darkest hour this season, losing at home to the New Orleans Hornets. So Kobe Bryant brought out his flashlight, flicked it on and shined it directly at the Hornets. Twelve chaotic minutes later, Bryant had taken the Lakers to a 104-96 victory Tuesday at Staples Center. Yes, there is light near the end of the regular season. Barely. Bryant entered the fourth quarter with seven points and finished with 30, pushing the Lakers to their most important victory this season, if only because they moved half a game ahead of Utah for eighth place in the Western Conference.

NEW ORLEANS - On a night when the Clippers were still smarting and weary from an overtime loss to Dallas, they received the lift it needed from their reserves. Jamal Crawford, Matt Barnes, Ryan Hollins, Lamar Odom and Eric Bledsoe won this game with their play in the fourth quarter, helping the Clippers carve out a 105-91 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night at the New Orleans Arena. Because those five played so well, it allowed Chris Paul to play just 33 minutes 44 seconds against the Hornets, one night after he played 39:27 against the Mavericks on Tuesday night.

Michel Gondry denies feeling stung by "The Green Hornet. " The $120-million action-adventure arrived in 2011 as the Oscar-winning French filmmaker's first Hollywood-backed studio movie. A modest hit starring Seth Rogen and Cameron Diaz, it required him to make no small number of creative compromises on its way to the screen, marking the only time final cut on one of his films was wrested away during an idiosyncratic dozen-year feature career. "Doing a big studio movie, the process could be, at times, challenging," Gondry admits in Inspector Clouseau-like English.
