Anaheim Mayor Is Sterling's Guest

Although the Clippers decided to remain at the Sports Arena this season, that hasn't stopped Anaheim officials from still trying to entice owner Donald T. Sterling to move to the Pond.

Anaheim Mayor Tom Daly sat with Sterling at courtside during Friday night's game against the New York Knicks at the Sports Arena.

Representing the City of Los Angeles and Hollywood Park at the game were Steve Soboroff, special consultant to Mayor Richard Riordan, and Harry Ornest, vice chairman of Hollywood Park.


Lamond Murray, the Clippers' No. 1 draft pick in 1994, has settled into his role as the club's top reserve. Murray came into Friday night's game against the New York Knicks averaging 10 points and four rebounds.

Murray, who started 61 games as a rookie and balked initially at going to the bench, feels comfortable as a reserve. "Now I've adjusted to that role," he said. "I know what my role is now. I come off the bench and play some defense and provide some scoring."

Of his defense, which has been superb, Murray said, "You have to dig deep within yourself and just play defense. That's what I go out there and do."
