The Clippers just can't let go of the loss on Oct. 29 to the Lakers, using that season-opening defeat as fuel to wreak havoc whenever they play them. The Lakers remember the embarrassment of their last historical defeat to the Clippers, not wanting to feel that kind of pain again. So when the Clippers and Lakers encountered each other Sunday at Staples Center, both teams were on a course to see where this game would take them. The Clippers took what has become their normal path this season, blowing out the Lakers, 120-97, in their home game.

It's with great trepidation that I announce news that's going to create more nightmares for the defensive coordinators who must figure out how to stop Bellflower St. John Bosco on the football field this fall: Sean McGrew is getting faster, stronger and even better. Yes, he's the same running back who rushed for 367 yards in 17 carries and scored seven touchdowns in the CIF Open Division regional bowl game against Corona Centennial last season. Last month, he ran the 100 meters in 10.67 seconds, setting a school record.

So what did we learn Sunday at the StubHub Center? Well, we learned the Galaxy, despite going winless in its first two games, is still one of Major League Soccer's elite teams. We learned that Chivas USA, despite losing just one of its first four games, is still a work in progress. And we learned that for Robbie Keane, the Galaxy forward born and bred in Ireland, a sunny 78-degree day is far from pleasant. “Robbie doesn't necessarily like these conditions,” Galaxy Coach Bruce Arena said.

Maybe Lucas Harrell's four-pitch walk of Mike Trout with the bases loaded and two outs in the second inning Friday was simply a byproduct of the control problems the Houston Astros right-hander had throughout his shaky three-inning start against the Angels. Surely, the Astros wouldn't pitch around Trout -- and concede a run -- so early in the game to face one of the baseball's most vaunted sluggers, Albert Pujols, the three-time National League most valuable player who has hit more home runs against Houston (48)

The Clippers lost their season opener to the Lakers by 13 points. In the next two games against the Lakers, the Clippers won by 36 points and 48 points. The 48-point margin of victory was the largest in Clippers' franchise history and the largest loss in Lakers' history. "Obviously that was a huge wakeup call for us, that first game," Paul said. "It's funny because Doc [Rivers ] says it to us just about every game. You're just not going to walk in there and win just because you've got Clippers going across your shirt.

When: Noon. Where: StubHub Center. On the air: TV: TWC SportsNet, UniMas; Radio: 1330, 1150 Records: Chivas USA 1-1-2, Galaxy 0-1-1. Update: The Galaxy, still looking for its first win of the MLS season, has traditionally enjoyed good luck against its StubHub Center roommate, outscoring Chivas, 14-2, in the last five games and losing just once in their last 18 meetings, dating to the Bush Administration. But this time Chivas has Erick Torres, who entered the weekend tied for the MLS scoring lead with one goal in each of his team's four games.

For more than a half century, few in this town have loved and lived the Lakers like Joe Smith. The former record mogul has four season seats on the baseline next to the Lakers bench. He has held those seats since the team arrived in Los Angeles. He has become as much of a fixture under the basket as the ballboys and Laker girls. No single ticket holder has endured longer, and certainly no single fan has invested more. For 54 years, Joe Smith has loved the Lakers graciously, gratefully and unconditionally.

A year ago, Tarrik Brock of Crespi was the fastest freshman sprinter in California, running a 10.57 100 meters. This coming week, he becomes eligible after transferring to Chaminade, and he's scheduled to show off his speed in a dual meet against Harvard-Westlake. His mother, Kanika, is the new track coach at Chaminade. Brock had been slowed by an injury, shutting him down during the summer. But let the suspense build about how fast Brock might be able to run this spring.

The Lakers closed the book on another player this season, one of many who couldn't quite get over their injury problems. Xavier Henry made it through a total of 43 games before the Lakers officially shut him down Friday because of wrist and knee injuries. He showed an appetite for driving to the basket and averaged 10 points in 21.1 minutes, almost all as a reserve. "My body is going to continually hurt as long as I keep pounding it and pounding it," Henry said Friday.
