At the start of each practice, the No. 1-seeded high school basketball team in the City Section, Woodland Hills Taft, plays hopscotch under the guidance of its coach, former NBA guard Jason Hart. I didn't know whether to laugh or ask Hart whether his two young sons had put him up to it. "These kids are traveling at an alarming rate in high school," Hart said. "They can't dribble with their left hand. So I sacrifice a day of coaching for a day of teaching them how to play basketball.

The season is on the brink and here are the hard-luck Clippers, of course, laying a big chunk of hope on a homegrown point guard nobody seems to know. "Who is Jason Hart?" On a busy downtown street corner, you stop 20 people and ask them. Twenty people stare back, eyes blank. Some turn the question on its heels. "Uh, who is Jason Hart?" There he is, down on the court, in his low, determined crouch. It is part of what he is, what has made him a Clipper and kept him in the NBA.

Welcome to the land of the vanishing point guard . . . One didn't make it into the game, and his replacement in the starting lineup didn't get out of the first half unscathed on Friday night at US Airways Center. This is about the latest injured Clippers, Baron Davis and Jason Hart. The slumping Davis, who has been ailing because of a bruised tailbone, was on hand but did not play. In the last eight games, Davis had been shooting 27.3% from the field and averaging 13.9 points.

Making personnel decisions isn't part of Corey Maggette's job description, but he says there's one move that seems obvious to him for next season: The Clippers should re-sign point guard Jason Hart. "He has been great for this team," Maggette said. "He has come in and fit with this team, he puts everyone in position to score and in position to win games. "What I'm saying is that he's a great pickup. I'm not the general manager, but I know I would bring him back."

Hart, who bought out his contract from the Sacramento Kings and was released Thursday, plans to sign with the Clippers on Monday unless another team claims him, team sources said.

Down goes Zach Randolph and what remained of this odd Clippers season . . . and boos the Clippers were hearing could quickly turn to apathy. That was the worrisome thought for the Clippers when Randolph, their top scoring threat, grabbed his left knee and winced and didn't get up right away early in the fourth quarter against Toronto on Monday night. He limped off the court and didn't return, getting treatment and an X-ray. The Clippers called it a bruised left knee and Coach Mike Dunleavy later described the injury as a sprained knee and termed it good news that the X-ray was negative.
