Houston Rockets forward Royce White has a self-described "mental illness. " He has many anxieties, among them a fear of flying. White told ESPN on Wednesday that he has talked to management about taking a bus to road games instead of a plane. He said that he hopes to reach a deal with the team within a week and has agreed to purchase the bus and assume liability. "What it's going to look like is every game that's drivable, I'm going to get a bus for myself," White said.

CHICAGO - All good things must come to an end, but the Kings' six-game winning streak didn't end well. Their 3-1 loss to the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center was sealed early, somewhere between the time a fired-up Jonathan Toews set up Marian Hossa's short-handed goal at 5 minutes 45 seconds - the first time the Kings had yielded a first-period goal in 19 games - and Kris Versteeg capped off a two-on-one with a shot...

Reporting from Indianapolis — It's back on the road again for the Clippers, part of their nine games away from Staples Center in March as they play a heavy schedule of 20 games this month. But this stretch of road games has to be considered the most harrowing, challenging and demanding physically and mentally for the Clippers. They will play back-to-back-to-back games for the second time this season — and all are on the road. The Clippers start at the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, then play at the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday and finish at the New Orleans Hornets on Thursday.

Clippers point guard Chris Paul didn't play against the Sacramento Kings on Friday night because of a strained right hamstring. Coach Doc Rivers said he told head athletic trainer Jasen Powell the team wanted to be “way more conservative than aggressive” with Paul's injury. The Clippers play the Indiana Pacers on Sunday afternoon at Staples Center, but Paul might miss that game too. The Clippers start an 11-day trip with a game in Atlanta on Wednesday. Rivers is hoping that Paul will be healthy for the road games.

Pasadena? Honolulu? The Bruins have tumbled so far that they might have to beg to play in a bowl game in Las Vegas. The Bruins haven't won a road game in two years, and they won't be favored to win in either of two remaining road games this season, Saturday at No. 24 Arizona and Nov. 11 at No. 9 Washington. If the Bruins lose those games but defeat Stanford and USC in their two remaining home games, they would finish 6-5 and qualify for bowl consideration.

Meanwhile, back on the road, all was well once again for the Dodgers. The road used to be a land of pitfalls and scary creatures, but now it might as well come with cookies and warm milk. The Dodgers flew to Chicago on Thursday, arriving at their hotel at 7:30 in the morning. No problem. The Dodgers lifted their eyelids long enough to down the Cubs, 6-4, at Wrigley Field, which left them with 11 consecutive victories away from home. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 6, Chicago Cubs 4 They already had set the Los Angeles Dodgers record for consecutive road wins, but Thursday's victory managed their most since the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers won 11 in a row on the road.

Those big hits the Dodgers almost had been manufacturing in bunches lately? They seemed to have taken the night off. Vanished into the Toronto night. Then a single strike away from suffering a tough one-run loss, the Dodgers tied the score on a gift double to Andre Ethier in the ninth inning and won it when Mark Ellis hit a two-run home run to spark a five-run 10th inning. So on they rolled, pushing across an 8-3 victory Wednesday that completed their three-game sweep of the Blue Jays in Toronto.

CHICAGO - The Kings used to win road games, and not just by the score of 2-1 or 3-2. Really. In fact, one was here in Chicago at the United Center on March 25 in the regular season and they scored five goals, the last time they recorded such an impressive output. That win in Chicago was two days after the Kings suffered a loss at home against Vancouver. Then for 75 days the Kings were unbeatable at home until Thursday night, when they weren't anymore. Now the show moves to the road where they've found it nearly impossible to win during the playoffs.

Will it be some youngster in Gilroy or Los Gatos pretending to be the San Jose Sharks' Joe Thornton scoring the winning goal in Game 7 or a Slovenian teenager doing the Kopitar, copying a dazzling move by the Kings' Anze Kopitar to secure Game 7? That's the never-ending wonder of a Game 7. They have a transformative-type power, turning seasoned professionals into kids again on the frozen pond. "You get into a game like this, that's where heroes are made," Dustin Brown of the Kings said Monday.

They hit the road for much of the first two months of the season, and the road hit back. Sore knees, twisted ankles, broken noses, bruised feelings. Losses. Now, here's the new year and a new opportunity for the Lakers. Unpacking. Prosperity? Maybe that too. No other NBA team played more road games through November and December, and only three others played as many, but now, at 17-16, the schedule finally turns in the Lakers' favor. They get to live at home.
