As a UNLV star, Wink Adams always was in the middle of the action. As an
NBA rookie, he’s buried on the bench, and he says his butt is “a little”

Griffin aces summer school test

Blake Griffin, the No. 1 pick in last month’s NBA Draft, scored 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in 30 minutes to lead the Los Angeles Clippers past their crosstown rivals, the Lakers, 93-82 in the NBA Summer League at the Thomas & Mack Center.

D-Leaguers in spotlight
