Update: Clippers shooting guard Eric Gordon is questionable for tonight's game because of a strained hamstring. Last week the Clippers lost at Indiana, 86-73, as the Pacers outscored them by 17 points in the fourth quarter. This is the Pacers' final game of a four-game trip.

Clippers tonight AT DENVER When: 6 PDT Where: Pepsi Center. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 980. Records: Clippers 27-48, Nuggets 49-27. Record vs. Nuggets: 1-1. Update: Big-picture question ... and, yes, unanswerable. What would have happened if the Clippers had lost that nationally televised game to the Nuggets on Nov. 20? Instead, they won and GM/Coach Mike Dunleavy ended up staying on the bench for a little more than two more months.

Under doctor's orders, Chris Kaman stayed away from his teammates Thursday. Nothing against the Clippers' leading scorer, but that may have been the best call of the week. Kaman is suffering from a virus -- not flu, the team says -- and the last thing they need is for what he has to go spreading through the squad. It's not a good thing if their numbers continue to hover around 10 and 11 players, at practice, and especially with a three-game trip coming up, starting at Oklahoma City on Sunday.

Two streaks. One long and another even longer were about 71/2 minutes from vanishing into thin air. (Well, maybe just that thin air in the uppermost reaches of Staples Center, only visible by binoculars.) It all unraveled in a barrage of three-point baskets by the Hornets as New Orleans went on a 13-2 fourth-quarter run on the way to a 108-100 victory over the Clippers on Monday night. The Clippers have lost eight games in a row, and still can't solve the puzzle of David West and the Hornets, having lost to them 13 consecutive times.

Momentum . . . check. An injury-ravaged opponent . . . check. Yet another injury during the game to an already injury-riddled team . . . check. Instead, it turned into basketball checkmate for the Clippers on Wednesday night at the Rose Garden in Portland, Ore., when the Trail Blazers held off a frantic charge by the Clippers in the final seconds to win, 103-99. Perhaps the most perplexing team in the NBA continued its trend of bizarre results. Not only did the Clippers (13-18)

Youth was finally served, after so many years of the rookies being picked over like a cheese platter. The first-year NBA players put together an inspired performance Friday night at American Airlines Arena in the Rookie Challenge, resulting in a 140-128 victory over the sophomore team that snapped a seven-year losing streak. It was the first triumph by the rookies since Jason Richardson led them in 2002 and only their third in 11 games since the current format of competing against second-year players was adopted in 2000.

Conventional wisdom held that a slimmer Al Thornton was supposed to be a new-and-improved Al Thornton. Instead, the Clippers' Thornton slid back a step or two after he dropped 25 pounds during the off-season, struggling with his confidence, struggling with his shot and ultimately losing his spot in the starting lineup. Apparently, you can be too thin too fast. It's fine for a supermodel, not so fine for a small forward. Thornton is showing signs of coming out of his early-season malaise.

What happens to the Clippers in New Jersey apparently isn't confined to the Northeast. Two days after losing to the worst team in the NBA, the Clippers ventured to the Target Center and stumbled against another franchise already looking forward to the draft lottery. Minnesota moved into double digits for victories thanks to a 111-97 triumph Friday night that left the Clippers in need of a novel approach to reverse their sagging fortunes. A players-only meeting earlier in the day did little to help the team regroup from a 16-point loss to the woeful Nets.

How do you blow a 22-point lead? Watch. The Clippers are proving capable of blowing all varieties of leads -- big, medium and small -- in excruciating and creative ways. This time, the meltdown came early, not late. The Clippers had a 22-point lead dwindle to nine by the end of the first half, and vanish by the start of the fourth quarter. Which turned the final 12 minutes into a genuine cliff-hanger. Not quite all of it. The Clippers didn't score in the final 6:58, as the Raptors won, 104-89, Friday night at Staples Center.

Update: The Clippers, success-impaired against the Spurs, move on to face another daunting opponent, the Hornets. They've lost 12 straight games to New Orleans, including three this season. The Hornets' average margin of victory in those three games: 16.6 points. Forward James Posey (flu symptoms)

Welcome to two-stage firing ... Clippers' style. The Clippers put a new twist on that old phrase: They thought Mike Dunleavy was so nice, they fired him twice. Technically speaking, Dunleavy stepped down as coach last month when he seemed unable to penetrate the deep malaise of his players. On Tuesday, the other part of his job description, general manager, vanished with about five weeks left in the regular season. Talk about the long (delayed) goodbye. The news blindsided Dunleavy.

A White House visit with the Clippers seems pretty far removed from long bus rides and cheap motels. JamesOn Curry doesn't need to win a championship to live his dream; merely walking onto an NBA court is enough of a pinch-me moment for the guard who has spent his professional career shuttling around the Development League. Calling himself "very blessed and very thankful" for the opportunity after signing a 10-day contract, Curry worked out with the Clippers on Saturday and held his own in a post-practice shooting drill with Baron Davis . He could make his NBA debut today against the Washington Wizards.

Momentum, that's the new (old) word of the day. Yes, the modern-day Clippers have heard rumors of that condition afflicting individuals, and at times, sports teams. They even flirted with it but only in the faintest, slightest of ways. Until now. The Clippers won their fourth consecutive game, and sixth in a row at home, defeating the Miami Heat, 94-84, Sunday afternoon at Staples Center behind Chris Kaman's 22 points and 14 rebounds, and kept the damage contained to the Heat's Dwyane Wade (24 points)
