NEWARK, N.J. -- Leave it to a former Duck to make things tougher on the Kings. New Jersey Devils forward Ryan Carter finally solved Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick.

Eric Gordon looked like a partially wrapped mummy with the layers around the area of his left shoulder coming loose, almost comically, in the first half. An apt metaphor for a rapidly unraveling Clippers season? Exactly. Gordon could not prevent that from happening Friday night despite a gritty 28 points. That was offset by Charlie Villanueva's 30 points off the bench as the Detroit Pistons beat the Clippers, 113-107, in overtime at Staples Center. The Clippers are 1-9 and have now lost five straight games.

This victory didn't come easily for USC. The Trojans gave up a double-digit second-half lead, survived the loss of their leading scorer — sent to the locker room with two technical fouls — and came back in overtime after a long video review that seemed to go the wrong way ended regulation. They beat Dayton, 63-61, in overtime Sunday at the Galen Center. The key play came with 2 minutes 50 seconds left when guard Jio Fontan created a spinning move worthy of "Dancing With the Stars" to score in the lane.

I can't wait to fly on one of the planes serviced by mechanics forced to work overtime ["United Downgrades 'Operational Emergencies,' " Aug. 26]. Mentally and physically tired personnel working on an airplane. Throw in frustration and anger, and you have a disaster waiting to happen. I think I'll take Amtrak. LOIS SHOEMAKER Simi Valley

Re " 'Overtime Culture' Pays Off for Firefighters," May 28: How is it we don't bat an eye when we hear of sports stars and celebrities earning millions upon millions for playing ball, or decent acting, but when it comes to paying those who protect our lives and property, well now, that is a whole different story. Granted, based on the information in your article, the overtime pay issue needs to be addressed. The stacking of shifts is a safety hazard. But I feel L.A. is entitled to have the highest-paid firefighters in the country.
