ON THE MEND
Clippers guard Shaun Livingston's surgically repaired left knee is improving and he will be allowed to pick up the intensity of his oncourt workouts. Livingston hasn't played since injuring his knee in the first quarter of a game between the Clippers and Charlotte Bobcats on Feb. 26, 2007.
``It goes to show you that your body of work and the integrity of the Hall of Fame and how they vote transcends somebody having a horrible year.'' - Miami Heat coach Pat Riley on being inducted to the Basketball Hall of Fame.
