There was an open seat in Section 106 amid the sellout crowd at Staples Center. Row 10, Seat 14. It belonged to Mychal Thompson for Game 2 of the Clippers-Golden State Warriors playoff series. He wasn't sitting in it. One of the Lakers' radio voices, Thompson is better recognized these days as the father of Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson. He doesn't see his son play often in person and he didn't want to sit for Monday's game. Too nervous. The elder Thompson carved out some standing room near the tunnel by the Warriors' bench.

Having two days off to rest before the Clippers play another playoff game against the Golden State Warriors is a good thing for injured L.A. guard Chris Paul. Paul has been dealing with a right hamstring injury that first occurred in the second quarter of Game 1 of the Western Conference playoff series between the Clippers and Warriors. The Clippers don't play Game 3 of the best-of-seven series that's tied at 1-1 until Thursday night in Oakland. “He needs it, because I think he's doing everything he can with it, to be honest,” Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said about Paul.

Almost everyone who knows Kings defenseman Drew Doughty realizes - quite quickly - that he wants to be on the ice as much as possible. In fact, Doughty was often after Kings Coach Darryl Sutter to use him in shootouts during the regular season. Doughty had another message after Tuesday's morning skate, several hours before Game 3 of the Kings' first-round playoff series against San Jose at Staples Center. More ice time. The issue came up in relation to the experiment of Game 2, in which the Kings dressed seven defensemen.

Do you own a smartphone? If so, you are a target for opportunistic thieves. Robberies and thefts involving smartphones are now the most common property crimes in America. The black market for these stolen devices has become so lucrative that even Colombian drug cartels now traffic in them. According to a survey by Consumer Reports, some 3.1 million Americans were victims of smartphone theft last year, nearly double the number in 2012. Los Angeles has experienced a more than a 30% increase in smartphone theft since 2011.

Gregg Popovich has become just the third person ever to be named the NBA coach of the year three times. Popovich, who coached the San Antonio Spurs to a league-best 62-20 record, joins Don Nelson and Pat Riley in that elite group. He also won the honor in 2003 and 2012. The Spurs have won at least 50 games in 16 of Popovich's 18 seasons at the helm, including the last 15 straight. Phoenix's Jeff Hornacek was runner-up in the voting and Chicago's Tom Thibodeau finished third.

California air quality officials are again moving to relax tough rules to clean up aging diesel trucks that are among the state's worst remaining sources of air pollution. The changes being considered this week by the state Air Resources Board come in response to pressure from small trucking firms and owner-operators, required to install costly diesel particulate filters or upgrade to cleaner models for the first time this year, who have pleaded for more time to comply. "We're all struggling," said Allen Forsyth of Los Angeles, who operates a three-truck fleet that hauls local freight near LAX. "I used everything I had to buy a 2012 truck.
