QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
"The first 10 to 13 minutes of every game, we are terrible. We are awful. It's almost a joke. Being a starter, I'm as responsible as anybody. It's frustrating because after that we play even or better than our opponent. The fact that we even have nine wins right now is amazing to me.''
-- Nets forward Richard Jefferson after watching his team fall behind early and eventually out in a 96-89 loss to the Rockets on Friday.

NBA.COM'S FANTASY TAKE
The Clippers’ Chris Kaman certainly fits the profile of a sell why the getting’s good candidate. But owners who have hung on to the big man are being handsomely rewarded. Kaman produced another outstanding line on Friday with 26 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks in his team’s win over the Kings. Over his last four games entering Friday’s contest, Kaman racked up 19 blocks, which is an average of almost five per game. Fantasy Index.
