Like many other state employees, prison nurse Nellie Larot was hit last year with furloughs that cut her salary: It dropped $10,000, to $92,000. But she more than made up for it by working extra shifts, raking in $177,512 in overtime, according to state records. Her total $270,000 in earnings last year eclipsed the $225,000 paid to Matthew Cate, head of the entire state prison system. Despite Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's decision to furlough workers three days a month to save money, many employees are taking home paychecks fattened by overtime -- more than $1 billion of it last year.

Pau Gasol couldn't stop pounding Kobe Bryant on the back as they embraced after the game. One, two, three, four times, maybe more, as the Lakers came from 18 points down to eventually beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in double overtime, 114-106, Sunday at Staples Center. It signaled the start of the playoffs a week before they began and left two lingering questions: Was it a fluke? And how long would Metta World Peace be suspended for elbowing Thunder reserve James Harden in the head?

DALLAS - Goaltender Jonas Hiller tried to make the best of the bad situation he had helped create through his shaky play in the last weeks of the regular season, but there were times uncertainty overtook him and despair crept in. He lost his starting job to rookie Frederik Andersen and for a while appeared to have dropped to third on the depth chart behind another rookie, John Gibson. He was the Ducks' forgotten man, left by the wayside as the Ducks forged to the top of the Western Conference and designated Andersen their playoff starter against the Dallas Stars.

Brian Ching scored six minutes into overtime and the Houston Dynamo advanced to the Western Conference final for the third time in four years with a 1-0 win against the Seattle Sounders on Sunday. The teams dueled to a scoreless tie in the first leg of their two-game semifinal on Oct. 29, setting up the winner-take-all match in Houston. Fittingly, the league's top two defensive teams during the regular season played 90 more minutes without a goal before Ching's game-winner. The Dynamo advance to the single-game Western final.

The Kings tried to reestablish their identity Tuesday and climb back into their first-round playoff series against San Jose. However, the resilient but still-flawed performance now leaves them facing an early end to their season. And, maybe, to an era. It wasn't enough that they shook off the two beatdowns they had absorbed in the first two games at San Jose and put together strong stretches Tuesday at Staples Center. Patrick Marleau's backhander off the stick of Kings defenseman Slava Voynov 6 minutes and 20 seconds into overtime gave San Jose a 4-3 victory and put the Kings on the brink of being swept out of the playoffs.

What started as a game of crazy bounces and deflections ended precisely that way in overtime and put the Kings on the verge of a stunning playoff elimination. Sharks star forward Patrick Marleau didn't get much on a backhand effort, but he didn't need to do so. His slow shot deflected off the stick of Kings defenseman Slava Voynov at 6 minutes 20 seconds of overtime past goalie Jonathan Quick, giving San Jose a 4-3 win over the Kings in Game 3 of their Western Conference quarterfinal playoff series Tuesday night at Staples Center.

In a regular season when so much has gone right for the Ducks, Teemu Selanne closed it perfectly Sunday by tugging a fellow Anaheim legend onto the ice for a final skate and embrace in front of an adoring sellout crowd. The Ducks (54-20-8) produced their NHL-best 26th comeback victory with a 3-2 overtime triumph over the Colorado Avalanche at Honda Center. Afterward, Selanne, 43, found his friend and former Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who's expected to join him in retirement at season's end. “Teemu's such a class act and he's known for a while that this possibly could be my last game,” Giguere said after his 33-save night for the Central Division champions.

CALGARY, Canada - After 80 regular-season games, it is official: The Kings will be making their way to San Jose.

At the same time, there was an uneven game going on at the Scotiabank Saddledome as the Calgary Flames won, 4-3, needing a shootout after the Kings rallied from a three-goal deficit.

They were two teams too close for comfort. Each other's. The width of a slip of paper separated Arizona and Wisconsin in Saturday night's NCAA West Regional final. And in the end, when Wisconsin won an overtime thriller of thrillers, it was the kind of game they will remember in NCAA basketball tournament lore forever. The final score, before 17,814 in Anaheim's Honda Center, was 64-63, and few will remember that. Margin of victory is all that mattered. Those who were there, or were watching on TV, will remember it as the kind of game where every screen was contested, every shot, even every referee's call.

Arizona got the last look, but Wisconsin definitely won the last gasp. In a West Regional title game that will go down as a real Saturday night special, Wisconsin overcame all sorts of setbacks, including a last-second replay review, to defeat Arizona in overtime. The final score was 64-63 before a crowd of 17,814 at Honda Center. The final seconds will be cherished but, thankfully, not further reviewed. Wisconsin (30-7) advances to next week's Final Four in Texas, the Badgers' first visit to basketball's last weekend since 2000.

Chances are, during Wednesday's holiday, you'll still be working. Even off the clock, when the country's laborers are supposed to be kicking back, catching up with the family and watching some TV, a new study concludes that 80% of them are putting in voluntary overtime. Outside of the office, 80% of Americans still continue to work, according to enterprise mobility company Good Technology, which surveyed 1,000 U.S. workers. On average, they put in an extra hour per day - stacking up to about an additional day of work each week.

A 24-hour extension in labor negotiations is an overtime period that even the most pessimistic NFL fan can embrace. ? Is there a John Elway -type out there who can pull this out? ? Or a Franco Harris ? ? The Lakers' struggles against the Charlotte Bobcats probably can be summed up in one word: Indifference. ? A year from now, the Clippers should be in the playoff hunt. ? Former USC forward Brian Scalabrine of the Chicago Bulls, in a Sports Illustrated interview, says of unassuming teammate Derrick Rose , "I'm way cockier than he is and I never play.
