The thought has crossed the mind of Clippers Coach Doc Rivers . Should he hold out All-Stars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin in any of the four regular-season games the Clippers have left? "Yeah, I have, but I don't know if I'll do it or not," Rivers said. "But it's a thought. We do have this interesting schedule, where we play a game. We have two days off. That's unusual. " The Clippers don't play again until Wednesday against Oklahoma City at Staples Center and then again Saturday against Sacramento at home.

Juergen Klinsmann hasn't made many missteps in his 2 1/2 years of coach of the U.S. national team. Still it was hard not to question last week's decision to jettison Martin Vasquez, his longtime right-hand man, and replace him with Tab Ramos and former German national team coach Berti Vogts. Sacking your top assistant two months before the World Cup is a little like a presidential candidate dumping his running mate after the convention. So was it an act of panic or prescience? It's too early to tell.

Surely the Lakers wanted to send Steve Nash to the sidelines with something better than this. They might get another chance. In one of the final dramas of a long-ago discarded season, Friday was supposed to be the last game of 2013-14, if not a career, for the 40-year-old point guard. But Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni said Nash might be back for another game after the Lakers' 107-95 loss to the Dallas Mavericks at Staples Center. BOX SCORE: Dallas Mavericks 107, Lakers 95 Nash had four points and seven assists in only his 14th appearance this season, his chronically sore back preventing him from playing so many other times.

Tom Umberg still remembers the Ducks' inaugural game at Honda Center in 1993. The Arrowhead Pond, as it was then called, was packed with more than 17,000 fans, all using their duck calls to accompany a Dixieland band in its rendition of "When the Ducks Go Marching In. " At one point during the pregame show Wild Wing, the team's greater than life-sized duck mascot, flew into the arena from the rafters. Umberg was in awe. So much so that almost 21 years later he remembers the pregame more than the final score.

SACRAMENTO - Pau Gasol's vertigo came back with a vengeance and Chris Kaman's right calf wouldn't cooperate. It was almost time for assistant coaches Kurt Rambis and Mark Madsen to suit up for the Lakers. "Only if they let me wear the short shorts," Rambis said beforehand and, yeah, that wasn't really possible. So the Lakers plowed ahead with nine players and lost to the equally awful Sacramento Kings, 107-102, on Wednesday at Sleep Train Arena. The Lakers (25-50)

PHOENIX - Blake Griffin and Jamal Crawford are considered doubtful to play against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night, the Clippers said. Griffin missed a game for the first time this season Monday in Minnesota because of back spasms and is considered a longshot to play against the Suns. Crawford also missed the game against the Timberwolves because of a sore left Achilles' tendon. Earlier in March, he missed eight of nine games because of soreness in his left calf. "It all depends on getting treatment and getting some work in," Crawford said after Monday's game.

MINNEAPOLIS - Down two more injured players, the Clippers just stayed the course, sticking with their “next man up” mantra. They didn't have that many men to step into the void, but the 10 players the Clippers had healthy Monday night were more than enough for them to overwhelm the Minnesota Timberwolves, 114-104, at the Target Center. Blake Griffin missed his first game of the season with back spasms. BOX SCORE: Clippers 114, Timberwolves 104 Jamal Crawford didn't play because of a sore left Achilles' tendon.

MINNEAPOLIS  - Blake Griffin stood erect with his back up against the basketball stanchion for support, contemplating whether it was wise to push through back spasms that forced him from the game Saturday night in Houston or to rest. Griffin decided to rest rather than play against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night. He probably won't play at Phoenix on Wednesday. The Clippers have seven regular-season games left before the playoffs start in about three weeks, and they want make sure Griffin is 100% healthy.

VANCOUVER, Canada - First place in the Pacific Division became the Ducks' again Saturday night, when they returned to the brand of play that put them there in the first place. "It's a goal" to win the division, said center Saku Koivu, one of five Ducks players who scored in a 5-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena. "We're more trying to pay attention to our game, the way we want to play, the way it has to be," Koivu said. Ducks rookie goalie Frederik Andersen stopped 31 of 32 shots as Anaheim established a new team record for most road wins (23)
