It was more than Blake Griffin's third career triple-double that helped the Clippers roll by the Milwaukee Bucks, 117-101, Wednesday night at Staples Center. To be sure, Griffin's 23 points, 11 rebounds and career-high 11 assists went a very long way in pushing the Clippers to their ninth win in 11 games. "It's exciting and I'm excited," Griffin said. "But at the same time, without my teammates making those shots, it doesn't happen. " And his teammates did make shots, to the tune of 54% from the field.

Lakers 119 - Rockets 108 (final) The Lakers had to go one last time without Coach Mike D'Antoni (knee), and the team won their fourth game in five tries with Bernie Bickerstaff at the helm. Kobe Bryant notched his 18th career triple-double with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in what would be another high-scoring affair for the Lakers. The team shot a season-high 54.1% from the field, converting 9-20 from three-point range. Pau Gasol scored his 15,000th career point.

Kobe Bryant considered it no big deal Sunday that his 22-point, 11-rebound, 11-assist performance against the Houston Rockets was his 18th triple-double, a feat that didn't inspire much more from him than a small smile. And maybe in one sense he was right. The way the Lakers' offense has been gushing since Mike Brown and his stale offense were sent packing, triple-doubles could become the norm for Bryant and triple-digit outputs are likely to become the norm for the Lakers. Their 119-108 rout of the Rockets was their fourth 100-point production in the five games since Bernie Bickerstaff stepped in for Brown, after reaching that level only twice in their first five games.

Andrew Bynum recently said he wanted 10 assists in a game, a funny notion for a 7-footer who fantasized about someday getting a triple-double. He got one Sunday, and it had nothing to do with passing. Bynum represented the Lakers' complete command of the Denver Nuggets in a playoff opener, getting the Lakers' first postseason triple-double since Magic Johnson in the 1991 NBA Finals. Bynum had 10 points and 13 rebounds, and tied an NBA playoff record with 10 blocked shots as the Lakers cruised past Denver, 103-88, at Staples Center.
