Jerry Zgoda's short takes

Cleveland's Christian Eyenga on encountering a knife-wielding fan on the Staples Center court before a game against the Clippers last weekend: "Of course, it scared me. I heard one of the cheerleaders say, 'The guy has a gun.' He might have killed everybody. I just started running ...

"I don't know how it could happen. I've never seen something like that. I hope I don't see it again."

No Kidding?

Jason Kidd turned 38 on Wednesday but said he plans to honor the final year of a three-year contract he signed in 2009 whether a lockout delays or cancels next season or not.

Anything's possible

Houston 6-6 center Chuck Hayes -- that's right, 6-6 center -- delivered his first career triple-double (13 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists) in Wednesday's victory over Golden State. That's one more than Steve Nash, Chris Paul or Deron Williams has this season.

"I'm sitting here and I'm so excited," he said. "I'm jumping up and down and going crazy on the inside. I just don't want to let it out and yell and look like a fool. This makes me proud. This is something that the great players do. I never thought I would be able to do anything like this."

Chasing the greats

Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant played his 300th NBA game last week. Only Shaquille O'Neal and LeBron James scored more points in their first 300 games than Durant.

O'Neal scored 8,150, James 8,008 and Durant 7,760.
