It was a win for the Clippers, and that's all that mattered. It didn't matter that the Clippers' 93-80 victory over the injury-depleted New York Knicks wasn't a thing of beauty on Sunday at Staples Center. It didn't matter that the Clippers' best quarter was the third or that they wobbled at times in the fourth quarter. What mattered most to the Clippers was that they had five players score in double figures and they got that rid of that taste from losing to Memphis on Wednesday night.

Tyson Chandler has traveled a perilous path to his spot as a valued member of the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team. A can't-miss prospect as a youth player, he associated with and was led around by some dubious characters in youth basketball, from the Inland Empire to Compton. Chandler's talent and drive persisted, however, getting him to the NBA and to a championship with the Dallas Mavericks last year before accepting a free-agent deal with the New York Knicks and winning the league's defensive player of the year award.

Metta World Peace made sure it was a white Christmas for the Lakers. Everywhere you looked inside Staples Center, there was his monochromatic white-on-white jersey. It went chest to chest with Tyson Chandler. It rubbed up against Carmelo Anthony enough to leave a mark. It repeatedly rose off the court for putbacks and rebounds and tap-outs. By the time World Peace fouled out late in the fourth quarter of the Lakers' 100-94 victory Tuesday afternoon, the New York Knicks were feeling snowed under by the blur of a part-time small forward who continues to come up big for the Lakers.

Every youngster looks up to somebody, even one who sprouts to 6 feet 8 at 12 and 7 feet at 16. Tyson Chandler had a hero as he grew from precocious toddler to tormented elementary school oddity to the best high school basketball player in Los Angeles, one who will bypass college and earn millions as a lottery pick in Wednesday's NBA draft. Jordan? Johnson? Abdul-Jabbar? No, Chandler didn't follow the pros enough to idolize ballplayers.

The Lakers made no moves on trade deadline day, watching from afar as, well, nothing really major happened across the league. Then the Lakers shrugged at the few minor deals that took place and turned back toward the rest of the regular season, which continues for them tonight against New Orleans after a 2-0 start coming out of the All-Star break.

Tyson Chandler of Compton Dominguez High watched the final two games of his prep career from the bench. An ankle injury suffered in a state regional semifinal victory left Chandler, a 7-foot-1 senior, as the biggest cheerleader in California. "I would have liked to have been out there," Chandler said after Dominguez won the Division II state championship game against Mountain View St. Francis. "But the important thing is that the team won. It's nice to see some of the other guys get attention."

Tyson Chandler still has one more year of high school before he goes to college or makes himself available for the NBA draft. The 7-foot center from Compton Dominguez High has matured from the skinny freshman of 1997-98 into a sinewy junior who dominated this season and helped Dominguez claim its second consecutive Division II state championship and a mythical national title. "By the end of the season, I felt like I could dominate, score or block a shot any time I wanted to," Chandler said.

LAS VEGAS — Anybody ready for Blake Griffin at center? It could happen in a few weeks when the U.S. men's basketball team begins the Olympics against France. Tyson Chandler probably will start at center, seeing how he's the only 7-footer on the team, a constant flash point for debate at the weeklong U.S. training camp. Dwight Howard is out because of back surgery and Andrew Bynum is out because he wanted to rest his delicate knees. There went the two starting All-Star centers.

If Tyson Chandler didn't see the final seconds when the Lakers won a title, then really, did it actually happen? That has to count for something as Chandler, a Los Angeles native, doesn't have to fight off mental images of Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Co. winning championships, now that he is trying to beat them with the Mavericks. On Monday night, Chandler, the 7-foot-1 Mavericks center, helped neutralize the Lakers' Andrew Bynum during Dallas' 96-94 victory in Game 1. After the game, Chandler mentioned he has been in town during the Lakers' past victory parades.

Bring on the likes of bigs Tyson Chandler , Brendan Haywood and Dirk Nowitzki . Yes, the challengers were sizable and many for Blake Griffin in the third game of his NBA career, this one against the Dallas Mavericks. "Blake has enough ball skills to be more effective than he was tonight, there's no question about that," Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro said. "It's a good learning curve for him. He guarded Dirk well at times. He took a charge in the second half, which was great.

NBA players always share a union and often share an agent and, sometimes, share a ride from Seattle to Portland, and still it is odd to see an opposing player in the home locker room, where Tyson Chandler was Friday night. Chandler, the 20-year-old Chicago Bull who'd pulled on Superman's cape and then woofed at him in a 13-point loss to the Lakers, walked into a back room, chatted with Shaquille O'Neal and left with a grin on his face.

Tyson Chandler looked forward to ending his high school career with a flourish. The 7-foot-1 Compton Dominguez center wanted to lead the Dons to a third consecutive state Division II title before heading off to the next level--college or perhaps the NBA. But a severely sprained right ankle suffered in a state regional semifinal victory over Inglewood dashed those hopes.
