A swell produced by a strong storm system over the central Pacific will begin to peak Friday, creating massive waves along the California coastline, the National Weather Service said. The long swell is a welcome sign for organizers of the Mavericks Invitational surf contest at Half Moon Bay. Organizers predict waves will reach 40 feet, similar to those seen in Hawaii. Weather officials aren't predicting 40-foot waves. They say they may be 20 feet at times in the Northern California area.

The scores of Clippers fans who filed into the aisles and walked out of Staples Center with about five minutes left Wednesday night will regret it for a while. Their decision certainly made sense at the time. Brandan Wright was preparing to step to the free-throw line to give the Dallas Mavericks a 17-point lead in a game that seemed firmly in their grasp. The Clippers took things from there, rallying for a 129-127 victory that served as quite the sendoff for a seven-game, 11-day trip.

DALLAS - The Lakers didn't allow 137 points again. It didn't matter. Their 110-97 loss to the Dallas Mavericks was more like a slow, steady drain that didn't become an obvious conclusion until midway through the fourth quarter Tuesday. Too many times, a Lakers possession looked like this: Dallas steal, Dallas fastbreak, Dallas layup. More mundane but more often, there was also plenty of: Lakers miss, Mavericks rebound. BOX SCORE: Mavericks 110, Lakers 97 Coach Mike D'Antoni reverted to gallows humor when reminded of the woes of the Lakers (14-21)
