Blake Griffin (C) of the Los Angeles Clippers hauls in a rebound against the Memphis Grizzlies during game two of their NBA Basketball playoff series at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on April 22, 2013.

It's time for our weekly romp through sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky. They've covered the L.A. sports scene for over a decade for the Times and ESPN.  

The Clippers are having the best season they have ever had. They won the Pacific Division for the first time, they swept the Lakers for the first time, and now they have a two-game lead in their playoff series with Memphis.

The Lakers on the other hand, got into the playoffs on the final day of the season, they don't have Kobe Bryant who's injured and lost by 12 to the Spurs on Sunday yet despite all that, the game was the highest rated playoff opener in a decade. How will the injured, aging Lakers still the hottest TV ticket around?

Kobe Bryant, who is recovering from his torn Achilles, was tweeting up a storm. Apparently, it was enough of a big deal that he will stop tweeting during games. 

The most famous biter in sports history was Mike Tyson when he chomped on Evander Holyfield's ear. Now, he might have some competition in Liverpool soccer player, Luis Suárez
