Clippers tonight AT PORTLAND When: 7. Where: Rose Garden. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 980. Records: Clippers 13-17, Trail Blazers 20-13. Record vs. Trail Blazers (2008-09): 1-3. Update: The NBA axis was a little off-kilter Monday night, when Boston lost at Golden State and Portland lost, at home, to Philadelphia. Granted, the Trail Blazers are injury-riddled, the latest occurring last week when center Joel Przybilla had season-ending knee surgery.

Kobe Bryant returned to the lineup, but the confounding ways of the Lakers came back too. Where to begin, other than that the Lakers lost again, this time to the undermanned Portland Trail Blazers, 91-88, and it wasn't even in Portland. There were missed free throws, bad shots and, curiously, an obvious lack of desire, the part that's of greatest interest this time of year. After all, the Lakers' first playoff game is expected to be next Sunday. All-Star guard Brandon Roy didn't play the second half because of a sprained right knee, and the Lakers couldn't do anything about it Sunday at Staples Center.

Some old friends are back in vogue Everyone knows LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Amare Stoudemire can be free agents this summer, but recent events suggest more big names will draw interest, even if they don't command big money anymore. Shaquille O'Neal, Cleveland -- Names don't come any bigger, nor do the bodies attached to them. A month ago, his numbers (10.9 points, 53%) at age 37 might not have attracted many bidders, including the team he's on. Since Jan. 23, he's at 15.6 and 64% and the Cavaliers are 12-3, so who says this is the Big Last Hurrah?

The torture chamber awaits the Lakers again. The arena is called the Rose Garden. The city is Portland. It is where the Lakers have received much pain over the years, a place where they just can't seem to win. They have lost eight consecutive games to the Trail Blazers in Portland. And the Lakers play the Trail Blazers tonight in Portland. "Well, we've got a challenge ahead of us, I guess," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said after practice Thursday. How can they overcome a challenge that the Lakers have failed at since they last won in Portland on Feb. 23, 2005?

Not that this is a scoop, but a furious debate is already underway . . . as to who the No. 2 pick will be. Forget No. 1. That's locked up. 1. John Wall , 6-4, 195, Fr., Kentucky. Imagine Kobe Bryant as a point guard at 17. "I was sitting there with [a Western GM]," said another Western team official of Kentucky's Dec. 9 win over Connecticut in New York.

Portland Trail Blazers center Joel Przybilla had surgery Thursday to repair his ruptured right patella tendon. Przybilla is expected to miss the rest of the season after hurting his leg during Portland's 85-81 victory at Dallas on Tuesday night. He went up for a rebound and came down awkwardly with 3:12 left in the first quarter. Przybilla averaged 4.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 30 games. The Trail Blazers have been beset by so many injuries this season that the NBA granted the team an exemption to carry 16 players on its roster.
