It was late Thursday night when UCLA's short-handed basketball team finally succumbed to Oregon in double overtime, 87-83. The Bruins were able to rally from a 14-point second-half deficit without their two best players, Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson , who were suspended one game for violating team rules. "I don't know if I've been more proud than I am of this team," Coach Steve Alford said after UCLA fell to 21-7 overall, 10-5 in Pac-12 Conference play. The suspensions meant a much-longer-than-usual night for freshmen Bryce Alford and Zach LaVine , who replaced Adams and Anderson.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Another loss was swallowed up by the theatrics surrounding it, a common theme nowadays for the Lakers. Coach Mike D'Antoni didn't necessarily disagree with Pau Gasol's dour thoughts on the Lakers' offense. Yes, there had been too much one-on-one action. But D'Antoni definitely didn't like Gasol sharing his opinion publicly. "The thing I just don't appreciate, and I think every coach [too], you just keep it in house," D'Antoni said Wednesday before the Lakers lost to Memphis, 108-103.

The storms are expected to deliver the most rainfall since spring 2011. They come as Southern California and most of the state struggles through a historically dry stretch. Last year was the driest calendar year in L.A.'s recorded history.
