About two weeks ago, 13-year-old Kevin Martin died when a van hit him as he was riding his bicycle near a blind curb close to his home on Sierra Highway, leaving his parents with a sense of hopeless frustration. For years, Jim and Hollie Martin had warned their four children repeatedly about the dangers of the heavily traveled thoroughfare. "He knew better than to be near the road at that time," his father said.

Kevin Love had 37 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, the first triple-double of his career, and the Minnesota Timberwolves cruised past the Utah Jazz, 121-104, Saturday night in Salt Lake City. Minnesota was again playing without starters Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and Kevin Martin (finger), but Love filled the void, keeping one step ahead of the Jazz throughout the game. He compiled all his statistics in just 32 minutes to earn a spot on the bench for the final nine minutes of the Timberwolves' third runaway win over the Jazz this season.

Clippers guard J.J. Redick is one of the NBA's top scorers in the first quarter. Through the first eight games, Redick has averaged 8.3 points per game in the first quarter. He averages 16.3 points per game overall. That ranks him as the fourth-best scorer in the first quarter behind Minnesota's Kevin Love (9.1 points), Minnesota's Kevin Martin (9.0) and Utah's Gordon Hayward (8.4). "It just opens it up for everybody," Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said about going to Redick early.

For months we have been hearing White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer and other Bush administration functionaries invoke capital-S science in their pronouncements. The science isn't in on global warming. We need more scientific study on RU-486. More science is needed on arsenic in the water, coal in the air. When did science become the last refuge of scoundrels? KEVIN MARTIN Silver Lake

Designer Natalie Martin has mastered the art of gypset dressing, L.A.-style.  In two years, the Aussie transplant has emerged as a go-to for boho-chic styles, including breezy kurtas, tunics, wrap skirts and maxi dresses, all priced under $300, and all crafted out of colorful, Balinese block print silks. Martin has a background in fashion marketing, putting in years at Italian leather goods brands Tod's and Hogan. "I always wanted to start my own line, and especially do dresses," says the designer, who embodies her boho brand, living in Coldwater Canyon with her husband, Kevin Martin, a musician in the band Candlebox , and their son Jasper.

Rookie Tyreke Evans scored a season-high 32 points and the Sacramento Kings held off the Utah Jazz for a 104-99 victory Saturday night in their first game without high-scoring guard Kevin Martin. Evans, the fourth overall pick in the June draft, became the focus of the Kings' offense in place of Martin, who averaged 30.6 points in the first five games. Martin will have surgery Monday to repair a fracture in his left wrist. Deron Williams had 29 points and 15 assists for the Jazz, and Carlos Boozer had 16 points and 17 rebounds.

Gov. Gray Davis should not consider his reelection results a mandate to turn further to the right but a warning shot fired from the left. If Davis wants to leave a legacy in the governor's office, he will remember the number of voters who, like me, went Green for the first time ever this year. Year 2006 need not be the "Year of Arnold's Ascendancy" (if Arnold Schwarzenegger runs for governor). It should be the time for a governor who truly governs for the majority of Californians.

The whiteboard inside the Lakers' locker room spelled out the defensive plan in various shades of marker. Find Kevin Martin. Watch Kevin Love's outlet passes. Make Ricky Rubio a shooter and not a driver. Fail. Fail. Fail. At least the Lakers were consistent. In a performance so appalling they were booed in the first quarter, the Lakers reached a new low Sunday night at Staples Center during a laughably lopsided 113-90 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

PLAYOFF-BOUND 1. San Antonio 2012-13 finish: 58-24. Coming: Marco Belinelli, Jeff Pendergraph. Going: Gary Neal, DeJuan Blair. Before anyone asks the Spurs to appear en masse on the next episode of "Derek," Ricky Gervais' thoughtful look at retirement home living, let's assess a few benefits of being old and reliable: San Antonio has finished first-first-second in the West over the last three seasons. Plus, the Spurs aren't really all that old; Kawhi Leonard, the team's new No. 3 option, is barely out of his Nickelodeon Jr. stage.

Looks are never more deceiving than they are in the NBA's Western Conference. Oklahoma City held what seemed to be exclusive rights to the conference championship as recently as summer 2012, when the Thunder's run-and-fun core of young stars was poised to make yearly trips to the Finals. Then the Lakers got Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, the Thunder traded James Harden and it was hello, Lakers dynasty! That sentiment lasted all of eight preseason games last fall. There's still a team from Los Angeles with title hopes that aren't as fake as most noses in the 90210 neighborhood, but it isn't the Lakers.

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets pulled off a late offseason trade on Saturday that sent James Harden, Cole Aldrich, Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward to the Houston Rockets for Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb and draft considerations. Harden was a major factor in knocking the Lakers out of the postseason last May. The move for the Thunder was more about economics than basketball.  The new collective-bargaining agreement includes increasingly punitive luxury taxes and Oklahoma City is already heavily invested in Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka.
