It's hip to Clip except if you're a Dodger fan, the Southern California hockey war may be on ice and and Manchester United is down a manager. This means it's time for sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky. They've covered sports for ESPN and Los Angeles Times. 

Tomorrow night in Oakland, the L.A. Clippers and Golden State Warriors play Game 3 of their series that's tied at one. The Clippers are having the best season they have ever had after decades of losing. They've been in L.A. for 30 years but lately something strange is happening. Chris Paul is one of their stars. Likeable, great player and funny. Twice now at Dodger Stadium he has been booed. Then Monday when the Clippers score was posted on the big screen at Dodger game, fans booed. We find out what's going on.

Next, all around Staples Center there are statues of Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Hall of Fame Lakers announcer Chick Hearn. Over the weekend these statues had balloons tied to them in Clippers colors. Did they go too far?

Now to two other area playoff teams, this time hockey, the Kings and Ducks. The Kings who lost last night to the San Jose Sharks and are now down 3-zip in their best of 7 series. The Ducks lead the Dallas Stars 2-1 with game 4 tonight. Is a Ducks vs. Kings playoff series dead?

The University of Texas has a new head coach in Charlie Strong. Texas football fans always have high hopes for the Longhorns but Strong told the Austin American-Statesman that while there's no reason why they can't be successful, they will not be in the national championship game this season. 

Arguably the most recognizable brand in soccer is Manchester United. Last year they replaced legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson with David Moyes, a man who got Ferguson's blessing. Now Man U is looking for a new manager. We'll find out if being at the helm of Manchester United the toughest sports job in the world.
