There were many eye-openers Sunday at Staples Center — two missed free-throw attempts by Kobe Bryant in the final seconds and a last-second three-point play diagrammed for Pau Gasol — but Ron Artest's seat on the bench was also telling. He sat out the final 2 minutes 50 seconds of Sunday's game against Portland, giving way to Sasha Vujacic in the Lakers' 91-88 loss. "He had a tough night," said Lakers Coach Phil Jackson , who didn't like that Portland guard-forward Rudy Fernandez was too fast for Artest while coming off screens.

A man suspected of using an ax to kill his brother's pet basset hound was charged Monday with felony animal cruelty, prosecutors said. Rudy Fernandez, 36, was arrested Thursday after he allegedly tried for half an hour to strangle the dog, named Samantha, and then struck her with an ax, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Debbie Knaan. The dog later died of its injuries. Los Angeles police said Fernandez tried to discard the animal, but police found the remains in a trash bin after receiving a call from a tipster.

The torture chamber awaits the Lakers again. The arena is called the Rose Garden. The city is Portland. It is where the Lakers have received much pain over the years, a place where they just can't seem to win. They have lost eight consecutive games to the Trail Blazers in Portland. And the Lakers play the Trail Blazers tonight in Portland. "Well, we've got a challenge ahead of us, I guess," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said after practice Thursday. How can they overcome a challenge that the Lakers have failed at since they last won in Portland on Feb. 23, 2005?

Rudy Fernandez is a talented basketball player from Spain who is projected as a possible first-round pick in today's NBA draft. And his big sister is pretty good, too. Marta Fernandez established a career high with 26 points and also had three assists to lead the Sparks to a 74-66 victory over Sacramento in front of an announced 7,857 Wednesday night at Staples Center. "He's very good," Fernandez said of her brother. "Tomorrow, we all watch on TV, and when the draft is done, I call him."

Pau Gasol had 18 points and 11 rebounds to lead world champion Spain to an 85-63 win over Serbia in the final of the European basketball championship Sunday at Katowice, Poland. The victory gave Spain its first European title after six runner-up finishes, including a one-point loss two years ago to Russia in front of its home crowd. The Spaniards dominated from the start at both ends of the court, playing pressure man-to-man defense and getting out on the break for easy baskets to take a 15-point first-quarter lead.
