Blake Griffin might have made one decision unnecessary for Clippers Coach Doc Rivers. Griffin picked up his 16th technical foul late in the second quarter of a 117-105 win over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday when he aggressively swiped at Timofey Mozgov, hitting the center in the head as he drove toward the basket. NBA rules stipulate that players are suspended for one game after collecting 16 technical fouls, meaning that Griffin would be forced to sit out the Clippers' regular-season finale against Portland on Wednesday unless his latest technical is rescinded.

Change or end up in a culvert: NHL style. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter was talking recently about the challenges of his profession, the changing nature of hockey, and put as fine a point on it as possible. He has coached 1,039 regular-season games, been in the playoffs 13 times and won the Stanley Cup two years ago with the Kings. From the start - coaching in Chicago to San Jose to Calgary and finally, Los Angeles - Sutter has evolved with the times and the players. "Anybody that has had success over a long time, it's not just the game that's changed," Sutter said.

Detroit's Miguel Cabrera became the first baseball player to win his league's Triple Crown in 45 years when he finished the 2012 season leading the AL in batting average (.330), home runs (44) and RBIs (139). Cabrera is only the 14th Triple Crown winner since 1901, but where does his season rank among all Triple Crown winners? Using a stat called OPS+ can help give us an answer. Basically, what OPS+ does is allow people to judge players across eras. OPS compares your stats to the league average and assign a value.

The second seasons of "Girls" and"Enlightened"will roll out on HBO in January. For "Girls" fans, that might be a long wait for someone longing for more glimpses of Adam Sackler's chest, sure. And it's an even longer wait for fans of "Enlightened," whose first season finale aired in December. The two comedies are paired for a beginning-of-the-year roll-out to fill the hole left by the horse-racing drama"Luck," which would have likely aired its second season during that period had it not been abrubtly canceled following a series of animal deaths.

Blake DeWitt still hasn't rented an apartment in Los Angeles. The 23-year-old infielder from small-town Missouri who was the Dodgers' feel-good story of last year doesn't know where he fits in the team's plans this season. But he's fine with that. "It'll take care of itself," DeWitt said. DeWitt is in his fourth stint in the majors this season and seventh in two years.

Gary Vitti's workspace at the Lakers' training facility is surrounded by a life-size skeleton, detailed charts of the human muscular system and books about tendons and ligaments. Lots of books. The medical library came in handy this season as the Lakers suffered a continual string of injuries, the worst in Vitti's 30 years as their trainer. A few days before his 60th birthday, Vitti sat down with The Times for a candid interview on how Kobe Bryant will look next season, why the Lakers were ailing all season and the recent outbursts of angry Lakers fans.

The Clippers have never won more games in a season. They've also never been better at home. All of which may not mean much depending on how the next few months go. There was no denying that the Clippers' 117-105 triumph over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night at Staples Center gave them franchise records of 57 victories and 34 home wins in the same season. BOX SCORE: Clippers 117, Nuggets 105 Of course, those aren't the ultimate goals for a team seeking to make it past the second round of the playoffs for the first time.

SALT LAKE CITY  - Mitch Kupchak paused for several seconds. It wasn't an easy question to answer. What will be Mike D'Antoni's fate? Finally, the Lakers' general manager spoke briefly about the Lakers' coach. "I'm not going to discuss Mike other than to say there is no timetable for any type of decision. So there's really nothing to share," Kupchak told The Times. It represented a departure from his comments last month that D'Antoni was "doing a great job under the circumstances.

A top seed vs. a No. 8 seed usually is a formality - there was a notable exception involving the Kings two years ago - but Dallas has won two of three games against the Ducks this season. The Oct. 20 opener was the Ducks' lone victory, as they overcame a 3-1 deficit with two Corey Perry goals and a shutout relief appearance by rookie goalie Frederik Andersen in his NHL debut, winning 6-3, after forward Ryan Garbutt launched himself at former Ducks forward Dustin Penner, who suffered a concussion on the hit. Garbutt was suspended.

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.
