Officials at the Bowers Museum reported Friday that its exhibit "Terra Cotta Warriors: Guardians of China's First Emperor" had 209,797 visitors during a five-month run that ended Thursday, making it by far the hottest ticket in the Santa Ana museum's history. About 250,000 people saw the Bowers' Egyptian mummies exhibit that shipped out six weeks before the Chinese warriors stepped in, but they'd been on view for 2 1/2 years. "Terra Cotta Warriors" more than doubled the 100,000 who saw the previous limited-run record-setter, "Secret World of the Forbidden City," during its seven-month stay in 2000.

Re "Actor Breathes New Life Into a Warrior's Ways," Nov. 28: To many people of Asia, the word "Bushido" evokes painful memories of brutal military expansionism, colonial subjugation, civilian massacres and barbaric beheading contests, as well as images of kamikaze attacks and ritualistic disembowelments. It may be an excellent money-making vehicle for Hollywood, but there is nothing noble, chivalrous or nostalgic about it. Robert Tsou Victorville

When: 7:30. Where: Oracle Arena. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio 980. Records: Clippers 19-10. Warriors 11-17. Update: Rebounding once was a problem for the Clippers, but no longer.

In three of those six games, the Clippers had 50-plus rebounds. The Warriors have lost nine times this season in games decided in the last 90 seconds.

Warriors 109 - Lakers 103 (final) The Lakers finally dug in defensively against the Warriors but their fourth-quarter run fell short, losing to Golden State, 109-103. After scoring 28, 35 and 31 in each of the first three quarters, the Warriors managed just 15 points in the final 12 minutes. The Lakers closed a 25-point deficit to just six late in the fourth but ultimately ran out of time. Kobe Bryant led all scorers with 36 points on 11-of-27 shooting (converting 12-16 from the line)

At the 6:37 mark of the fourth quarter, Kobe Bryant checked back into the game between the Lakers and Golden State Warriors Wednesday night. The Lakers and Warriors had been in a back-and-forth game, neither team willing to yield to the other, neither team backing down. But then Bryant put his fingerprints all over the game, scoring 17 points in the quarter, doing so in less than seven minutes, pulling the Lakers along with him for a 115-110 victory over the Warriors. Bryant finished with 30 of his 39 points in the second half, but it was his fourth-quarter exploits that helped the Lakers win their sixth consecutive game.

In an international network of unassuming man caves, Europe's World War II air battles are still being waged, thanks to computer flight simulators and an elaborate multiplayer game. The documentary "Man at War" takes an up-close, if not always penetrating, look at this subculture of avid virtual warriors, with wry glances at the women who watch from the sidelines, variously amused, exasperated and unimpressed. Polish filmmaker Jacek Blawut - whose cinematography credits include an episode of "The Decalogue" - orchestrates his material with energy and precision, especially as he tracks the action during a decisive battle (Hanover, among other cities, is at stake)

Lakers 101 - Warriors 77 (final) The Lakers (2-4) got their most impressive, and second, win of the season Friday night over the Warriors (3-3). The Lakers shot just 40% from the field but did a tremendous job defensively. Golden State struggled inside without Andrew Bogut (ankle) and defensively on the perimeter with no Brandon Rush (ACL) to check Kobe Bryant. The Lakers were once again without Steve Nash (leg). Bryant led all scorers with 27 points on 10-18 shooting from the field. He nearly notched a triple-double with seven assists and nine boards.

Golden State 113, at Toronto 112: Don Nelson tied Lenny Wilkens for the most wins by an NBA coach when the Warriors held off the Raptors for their second straight victory. The victory was the 1,332nd for Nelson, who can pass Wilkens when Golden State plays at Washington on Tuesday. Golden State's players danced in a circle around Nelson after the wild finish, which saw Chris Bosh steal the inbounds pass only to have his attempt at a game-winning layup roll off the rim as time expired.

Jody Carlson called it "unbearable," and though she could have been describing the loss that prevented Irvine from winning a share of the Sea View League title, she was actually describing Woodbridge's defense. That defense allowed the Warriors, the fifth-ranked team in Orange County, to beat sixth-ranked Irvine, 45-40, and win the title outright. A year ago, Woodbridge also beat Irvine in the season finale to win a share of the title.

How valuable was Larry Montgomery to Troy? Montgomery rushed 38 times for 374 yards in the season's first two games but hasn't played since injuring his left knee in Week 2. Going into Friday's game against Sonora, Montgomery was still the Warriors' rushing leader--by 48 yards; Adrian Vargas had carried 61 times for 326 yards.
