It was an intense game that clearly meant something to both the Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder. It was such an intense game that neither team seemed able to take control, the Clippers falling behind by 17 points, the Thunder blowing almost all of its lead. In the end, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant game up big to help the Thunder get by the Clippers, 107-101, Wednesday night at Staples Center. Chris Paul (25 points, eight assists) and Blake Griffin (30 points, 12 rebounds)

NEW ORLEANS - The Clippers have slipped in recent games, leaving Coach Doc Rivers to declare that the “basketball gods punish you for messing around.” Rivers also said that a poor mind-set from the outset will prove costly, and the Clippers didn't bring the right intensity in dropping a 98-96 game to the injury-riddled New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night at the Smoothie King Center. The Clippers are 2-2 in their last four games, all against sub.-500 teams. BOX SCORE: Pelicans 98, Clippers 96 This loss came against a Pelicans team that had only nine healthy players and has the fourth-worst record in the Western Conference, but still won after Jamal Crawford missed a potential game-winning three-pointer as time expired.

reporting from new orleans I drive alongside the grassy slope of the Mississippi River levee and turn east at Magazine Street, traveling past Audubon Zoo toward downtown. It's a narrow, bumpy street shaded by giant oaks, their roots upending great chunks of sidewalk. But nobody seems to mind. This is New Orleans. I'm on a quest to find the best snowball in a city filled with stands. Don't mistake a snowball for a snow cone. The former is soft like powder snow, the latter crunchy like hard pack.

Here are five hangouts anyone headed to New Orleans should know about, whether going for the Super Bowl or Mardi Gras this month, in April for Jazz Fest, or just any old time. PARASOL'S BAR AND RESTAURANT This slice-of-life landmark probably serves the best po'boy sandwiches in town. It also serves up only-in-New-Orleans-caliber conversation, particularly in the bar area. Tulane students, locals and tourists all flock to Parasol's for lunch. Not far off the St. Charles streetcar route, but probably best to take a cab. 2533 Constance St.; (504)

Sunday marks the fifth anniversary of the day Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Louisiana and Mississippi coastlines, causing the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history. Waters flowing over or through shattered levees flooded an estimated 80% of New Orleans, driving out more than half the population and devastating the local economy. Scenes from the flood are being replayed across television networks and websites this week, reminding Americans about the multiple governmental failures that helped cause and prolong the suffering.

The last time the Lakers won three straight games was in mid-November. On Tuesday, they have the chance to do it again -- for just the season time this season -- hosting the New Orleans Pelicans at Staples Center on Wednesday night. The Lakers (21-39) defeated the Sacramento Kings on Friday and the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday. The Pelicans (23-37) also played on Monday, losing in Sacramento. New Orleans has struggled of late, losing eight in a row. All-star Anthony Davis is playing through a shoulder injury but Ryan Anderson (back)

NEW ORLEANS - When Clippers Coach Doc Rivers was asked Wednesday night about the chances of J.J. Redick returning to play with the team on this trip, Rivers left the assembled media confused with his answers. Redick was on the court shooting before the Clippers played the New Orleans Pelicans, but he still missed his 21st consecutive game because of a bulging disk in his back. Redick will be with the Clippers on the entire five-game trip and Rivers was asked if he would play.

The Clippers' last lengthy trip of the regular season could amount to an extended scouting mission. Three of the teams they'll play on the five-game trip - Dallas, Houston and Phoenix - are possible first-round playoff opponents, though a matchup against the Rockets appears unlikely unless both teams slip considerably over the last three weeks of the regular season. Before Tuesday's games, the Clippers (50-21) were in third place in the Western Conference, but only 2 1/2 games behind second-place Oklahoma City and 1 1/2 games ahead of fourth-place Houston.

She shuffled and jerked. She collapsed on the Wiltern stage like a marionette, got up and then quickly dropped again. During "St. Johnny," the artist Annie Clark, her stark white hair jutting up and out, slithered and posed on stage stairs in overwrought exhaustion.   And through it all the versatile artist, who performs as St. Vincent, didn't miss a beat, whether ruling the upper ranges during vocal runs -- "people turn the TV on it looks just like a window," she offered on "Digital Witness" -- or barking out declarations and confessions, whether offering quick synchronized dance moves or pouring forth oft-dissonant, breathtaking guitar solos and distorted, metal-esque riffs.

A day after being indicted by an Arizona grand jury, ex-NFL star Darren Sharper is scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom Thursday morning -- his latest hearing amid mounting legal troubles that extend across five states. Los Angeles prosecutors charged Sharper in February with seven rape and drug counts, alleging he drugged and assaulted two women he met at a West Hollywood club. Court documents revealed he was under investigation for similar allegations in Las Vegas, New Orleans and Tempe, Ariz.

An L.A. County Superior Court judge on Thursday ordered former NFL player Darren Sharper to remain in jail without bail because of a new indictment against him in Arizona on two sex assault cases. Judge Renee Korn also declined efforts by Sharper's attorneys, Blair Berk and Larry Levine, to have Sharper released from L.A. County custody on house arrest with GPS monitoring. Sharper, 38, has been charged by Los Angeles County prosecutors with seven rape and drug counts in connection with two alleged attacks in Hollywood.

At age 26, bandleader Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is the heir to a legacy of Crescent City musical royalty that includes Dr. John, the Marsalis family and the Neville Brothers. With a hip-shaking sound that mixes New Orleans jazz with funk, hip-hop rhythms and rock guitar, Andrews earned a Grammy nomination for his 2010 album “Backatown,” which was the same year he earned notice playing himself on HBO's “Treme.” His latest album features guest turns from Jeff Beck, Kid Rock and the Rebirth Brass Band, and Wednesday he performs at the Hollywood Bowl as part of the Neville Brothers' farewell tour.

Caffeine is an essential at the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim - thousands and thousands of food and personal care products and crowds as big as nearby Disneyland. Which is what led me to one of my favorites of the 2014 show last week. Blue Bottle Coffee and Clover organic milk - together. In a little school-size milk carton, with chicory and sugar. I can hardly wait for these to get to markets, which should happen this year. Blue Bottle founder James Freeman said he had tried other ready-to-drink coffees on the market and rated them "from terrible to horrible.

The Lakers will probably be mathematically eliminated next week from a playoff spot, four weeks before the regular season ends. That's what happens when you go 10-29 since Dec. 21. But Coach Mike D'Antoni still wants some consistency from them over their final 18 games. They got drilled by the Clippers last week, lost a home game to New Orleans and were no-shows in Denver. Yet they beat Portland and Oklahoma City in the span of seven days. It's fine to be confused.
