Mike Dunleavy Still in Dog House in Los Angeles


(Registration required)If anyone thought the Clippers’ management chaos would calm down — think again. Late Wednesday, after the Clippers’ 111-85 victory over the Kings, Mike Dunleavy told The Times that team President Andy Roeser had asked him to say publicly that the coach had patched up his differences with owner Donald T. Sterling, even though the two hadn’t spoken.

Meanwhile, Sterling is said to still be upset with Dunleavy’s comments about replacing him as coach. Sterling left his courtside seat Wednesday at the start of the third quarter, angry that Dunleavy was playing Quinton Ross, who has missed his last 19 shots, instead of rookie Al Thornton, who had a strong second quarter.
