--Jazz beat Clippers 103-91 so winner of Lakers-Nuggets get Jazz on Sunday

--Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said he plans to play Devin Ebanks at some shooting guar against Denver. There's multiple lines of thinking for this. Sasha Vujacic will sit out this weekend after suffering a concussion. The small forward position is also what Jackson describes as "stacked" with Ron Artest, Matt Barnes and Luke Walton (when he returns from a strained right hamstring) "We're going to try to get him used to that position. "He's played well enough to see he's got some skill. He's got some talent and can get some things done."

Jackson expressed again lack of concern for Kobe Bryant's shooting: "It's just a by product of his knee. He's still going to shoot the ball"
