Finger-pointing. Allegations of fraudulent inducement. He said, he said. Welcome to the Clippers vs. Mike Dunleavy. The latest curious twist in the battle between the Clippers and owner Donald Sterling and the team's former coach-general manager took a wild turn last week when the Clippers, trying to halt Dunleavy's arbitration claim, alleged that Dunleavy fraudulently induced the Clippers into entering an employment agreement. Dunleavy's lawyer, in an interview with The Times on Thursday, said the lawsuit does not pass "the laugh test."

Mike Dunleavy, former coach and general manager of the Clippers, takes a look at what the Lakers need to do to repeat their title next season. Dunleavy has coached four NBA teams — the Clippers, Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and Portland Trail Blazers. He was NBA coach of the year in 1999 with Portland. The Lakers will have a lot of difficult decisions in the coming months, but this one is a no-brainer: They need to keep Derek Fisher. In a moment, I'll get into some of the other choices the franchise needs to make as it positions itself to make a run at a third consecutive NBA title.

The Lakers won their 16th banner Thursday, and do you know whom they have to thank for it? No. 16. It was Pau Gasol, their big man in the middle, who came through in a huge way down the stretch.

Dunleavy has coached four NBA teams — the Clippers, Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and Portland Trail Blazers. He was NBA coach of the year in 1999 with Portland. The fifth game of the NBA Finals is often the pivotal game in the series, and this one turned into a Boston D party. While the Celtics clamped down on the Lakers, limiting them to 39.7% shooting and only two players in double figures, Boston also got a big lift from Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo to head back to Los Angeles with a 3-2 lead.

When it came to the heavy lifting Thursday, it was the bench press of Boston that decided Game 4. That was excellent game management by Doc Rivers, leaving the bench in just long enough in the fourth quarter to take control down the stretch, but not so long as to ice the starters on the sideline. There's a fine line you have to walk as a coach to make sure all the egos are massaged. In this case, everybody got in, everybody played a role, and nobody could go home thinking, "The coach doesn't believe in me."

The Lakers dozed off on Boston's backcourt Sunday, and the Celtics guards made them pay for that mistake. Ray Allen set a Finals record with eight three-pointers, but Rajon Rondo was the show. His ability to rebound and get the Celtics into the open court kept the Lakers back on their heels.

Dunleavy has coached four NBA teams — the Clippers, Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and Portland Trail Blazers. He was the NBA coach of the year in 1999 with Portland. The Lakers have a big size advantage over the Celtics, and it showed in Game 1. Pau Gasol had a great all-around game at both ends of the court, and I was also really impressed by Andrew Bynum.
