Chicago Bulls defeat LA Clippers 106-88. The Clippers came into the game with a Los Angeles record nine-game winning streak at home. But the impressive Chicago Bulls came into STAPLES Center and avenged their Dec. 18 loss.

Blake Griffin had an All Star first half scoring 25 points going 11-for-18. However he all but disappeared in the third quarter scoring only two points as the Bulls started to push their lead to double-digits.

Part of the Clippers downfall was being out-rebounded by the Bulls 41-30.

LA Kings defeat Edmonton Oilers 3-1. Ryan Smyth had two power-play goals, Jack Johnson had a goal and two assists and Jonathan Quick had 32 saves to give the Kings the win they should have had. The Kings start out their 10-game road trip with three out a possible four points.

San Jose Sharks defeat Anaheim Ducks 4-3. Call it rust, but the Ducks spotted the Sharks a 3-0 lead after the first 11 minutes. Although they finally woke up in the third period, that hole was far too much for them to overcome.

UCLA Bruins defeat USC Trojans 64-50. The Bruins avenge their loss at the Galen Center. What this means in the bigger picture I still don't know. Up next for the Bruins is former head coach Steve Lavin and his St. Johns squad Saturday morning.
