Here are five takeaways from the Clippers’ 138-98 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Monday night at Staples Center in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series that evened the series at one game apiece heading into Game 3 on Thursday at Oracle Arena in Oakland:

1. If Blake Griffin keeps playing like this, the series is over. The Clippers forward unfurled the inverse of his Game 1 clunker, scoring 35 points in only 29 minutes with stunning efficiency. He made 13 of 17 shots, scoring in a variety of ways — backing down overmatched defenders for layups, muscling in for tip-ins, rising for jumpers, making his free throws and yes, throwing down a few dunks. Griffin led the fastbreak on several occasions and committed zero fouls two days after fouling out in only 19 minutes. He also made nine of 10 free throws and was able to sit out the entire fourth quarter with his team so comfortably ahead. Golden State will need to try a new defensive approach in Game 3 or risk further embarrassment. Here's guessing Warriors Coach Mark Jackson also will give officials an earful about Griffin not being called for one foul in a physical game.

Political cartoonist extraordinaire, A.F.Branco, has joined the team at Liberty Alliance. Consequently, readers will now be able to enjoy his razor-sharp political humor on a regular basis. Are you concerned about the people who President Obama views as his mentors? If so, picture this. An angry looking Frank Marshall Davis is seen spouting his well-known, threadbare communist diatribes (e.g. spread the wealth, if you are success somebody else made that happen, the private sector is doing fine). In his hands he holds a mask of Barack Obama which he has just taken off. The caption reads: “The ideology behind the gaffe mask.” Priceless satire.

Three Hollywood executives accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy in the late 1990s say the allegations against them are false. 

Garth Ancier, David Neuman and Gary Goddard were named in three separate complaints, filed Monday by attorney Jeff Herman in Hawaii, accusing them of sexually abusing Michael F. Egan III. Last week, Egan accused "X-Men" director Bryan Singer in a federal lawsuit of drugging and sexually assaulting him.

Ancier is a prominent television executive who has held senior positions at Fox, NBC and CNN. Neuman is a former senior Walt Disney television executive and also worked as chief programming officer for CNN. Goddard is the founder of a design firm and has produced off-Broadway shows.

Hundreds of uniformed police officers gathered in downtown Los Angeles early Tuesday to pay their final respects to a veteran LAPD motorcycle officer who died earlier this month after being struck by a driver suspected of being under the influence of cocaine.

A 26-year veteran of the LAPD, Christopher Cortijo, 51, had been assigned to the Valley Traffic Division when he was struck from behind on April 5 by an SUV.

At a funeral Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, colleagues remembered him as a man who so cherished his role as a motorcycle cop that he wore a leather motorcycle jacket even in the soaring San Fernando Valley heat. He was known throughout the department for his large mustache, his sense of humor and his compassion, they said.

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road.

“There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told the Boston Herald. The “Cadillac tax” that goes into effect in a few years and taxes employer health plans over a certain value, he said, will be “the first time in this country’s history that we have actually taxed health care.”

Following his death on Sunday, there’s been a rash response to the famed boxer’s life—both pre and post prison—all of which poses the question: Was he really ‘all love’?

“This man right here is love. He’s all love,” announced Denzel Washington while swaddling his Best Actor gong at the Golden Globes in 2000. The man of love, former boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, who died yesterday at 76, rubbed his hands nervously, managing a meek smile as Washington spoke while patting him on the back.

A divided Supreme Court upheld Michigan’s ban on race conscious admissions policies at public universities today, reversing a lower court decision that had struck down the ban on equal protection grounds.

Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the main opinion and said, “This case is not about how the debate about racial preferences should be resolved. It is about who may resolve it. There is no authority in the Constitution of the United States or in the Court’s precedents for the Judiciary to set aside Michigan’s laws that commit this policy determination to the voters.”

The vote was 6-2. Justice Elena Kagan took no part in the decision presumably because she dealt with it in her previous job as solicitor general. Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote a dissent joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

There was less than a minute remaining, the score was tied, and where was the Clippers' most valuable player, biggest star and human billboard?

Blake Griffin was standing on the sidelines having just fouled out. He was angrily staring up at the giant video screen. In his right hand he was holding a paper cup filled with water. Suddenly, he shouted something, spread his arms out in disgust, and dumped the entire cup over his right shoulder.

Where it, um, coincidentally emptied upon a courtside fan wearing a Golden State Warriors T-shirt.

Some parents of the fifth-graders at Zeman Elementary in Lincoln complained and posted angry comments on Facebook, the Lincoln Journal Star reported Thursday.
