Chris Kaman found time to joke about his best game with the Lakers. The rest of the season, excruciating at worst and challenging at best, melted behind him. He had 28 points, 17 rebounds and six assists in an easy 115-99 victory Sunday over the Phoenix Suns. "I actually thought I had 30 because my career high was 29 a bunch of times. That last play, Jodie [ Meeks ] was open so I threw it to him," Kaman said. Had he shot it down low on that late fourth-quarter play, it probably would have gone in. Kaman didn't mind on a night he made 13 of 19 shots.

NEW ORLEANS - The Clippers have slipped in recent games, leaving Coach Doc Rivers to declare that the “basketball gods punish you for messing around.” Rivers also said that a poor mind-set from the outset will prove costly, and the Clippers didn't bring the right intensity in dropping a 98-96 game to the injury-riddled New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night at the Smoothie King Center. The Clippers are 2-2 in their last four games, all against sub.-500 teams. BOX SCORE: Pelicans 98, Clippers 96 This loss came against a Pelicans team that had only nine healthy players and has the fourth-worst record in the Western Conference, but still won after Jamal Crawford missed a potential game-winning three-pointer as time expired.
