Chris Paul

  1. Video: Pau Gasol, happy to still be with the Lakers

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:25 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol drives between Boston Celtics Brandon Bass and Celtics Jermaine O'Neal in the first half of their NBA basketball game at TD Garden in Boston

    It was a rough first half of the season for Pau Gasol. Ever since training camp, when he was included in the trade that would have sent him out of town in exchange for Chris Paul, except that it was vetoed … well, it was never really agreed to by the Hornets’ ownership, so technically…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls beat Heat even without that Rose guy

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James is guarded by Chicago Bulls' John Lucas and Luol Deng during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while waiting for Dwight Howard to change his mind again…. Bulls 106, Heat 102: This just shows the different mentalities of these two teams. No Derrick Rose, no Richard Hamilton and yet the Bulls just brought it with fantastic energy. They defended, guys like John Lucas III (24 points) and Jimmy Butler…

    Mar 13, 2012, 11:20 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo celebrates during their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Los Angeles

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Rajon Rondo’s pregame meal? Sushi, of course. (I was in the locker room last night and can confirm this.) What would life be like if…

  5. Danny Ainge: “Rondo’s not being traded”

    Mar 13, 2012, 8:37 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo (9) shoots over Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    Danny Ainge was unequivocal as you can be in speaking with A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com before the Celtics took on the Clippers Monday night. “Rondo’s not being traded,” Danny Ainge, Boston’s president of basketball operations, told CSNNE.com prior to the Celtics facing the Los Angeles Clippers. “I don’t know how many times I have…

  6. Celtics suck the fun out of Clippers style, earn the win

    Mar 13, 2012, 2:54 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics Avery Bradley slam dunks over the Los Angeles Clippers during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Teams have to learn how to win at the NBA level. How to play to their strengths, how to recognize the mismatch and exploit it, how to go to the counter when the first option is taken away. Boston knows how to do that — their depleted roster and aging bodies may not let them…

  7. Reports: Portland shopping Crawford to Clippers, Bobcats

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    Jamal Crawford and his up-tempo, shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later style has not meshed with the grind it out ways of Nate McMillan in Portland. It hasn’t been fun for him. What could possibly be worse. Charlotte. On the other hand, he could land with everyone’s new favorite team the Clippers. There are a few different reports out there.…

  8. Report: Howard likes Clippers, Heat. Please make this stop.

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Another day, another report that the Orlando Magic are leaning heavily toward keeping Dwight Howard in their camp and trying to convince him to stay. This time it’s in a series of tweets of from Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated we hear that Dwight is staying and that he still has no interest in going…

  9. Clippers not likely to get Ray Allen, won’t risk long term for short

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:48 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    It’s pretty easy to picture the Clippers as a serious threat to the Thunder in the West if they added Ray Allen — the Celtics sharp shooter who takes on the Clippers Monday night. The Clippers have struggled with production from the two guard spot since Chauncey Billups went down with an Achilles tendon injury.…

  10. Lakers, Celtics talk then kill Gasol for Rondo; LA still looking

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season. Both were offered up in a trade for Chris Paul, and when that didn’t work out they became the names fans of the Lakers and Celtics talked about shopping. For their part, both teams said they wanted to keep the guy publically,…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: What kind of team are the Knicks?

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:07 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    What you missed while thinking if you are going to have two wives you may want to get off Facebook…. Lakers 97, Celtics 94: This rematch of a couple recent finals — which looked like those finals if you squinted really hard — was our game of the day. Sixers 106, Knicks 94: How this…

  12. Report: Chris Paul has nasal fracture, will wear mask just like you know who

    Mar 11, 2012, 10:21 PM EDT

    cpmas

    It’s apparently a fad now. From the Los Angeles Times: Chris Paul warmed up for Sunday’s game against Golden State with a very familiar accessory. A Kobe mask. Paul was hit in the face during the first quarter of Friday’s game against San Antonio. A Clippers spokesman said that Paul received an X-ray on Saturday and it…

  13. Pau Gasol remaining calm as trade deadline approaches

    Mar 7, 2012, 8:46 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    Over the next week, Pau Gasol’s name is going to come up a lot in rumored trade talks. Most of which have little if any foundation, but the rumors will be out there. Gasol said it doesn’t bother him anymore. He’s moved past it. Here is what he said, via the Los Angeles Daily News.…

  14. Video: Was Blake Griffin’s takedown of Luke Ridnour dirty?

    Mar 6, 2012, 2:11 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Blake Griffin is a chippy player. Which he needs to be — he’s a big man who is physical and other teams respond with physicality. If he didn’t push back and hold his ground (both physically and in terms of intimidation) he’d be swept aside. But there is a line there with being chippy and…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kevin Love outduels Blake Griffin

    Mar 6, 2012, 7:43 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is fouled by Los Angeles Clippers forward Reggie Evans in Minneapolis

    What you missed while buying way more Girl Scout cookies than you really should… Thunder 95, Mavericks 92: Oklahoma City scored the final eight points to win another close contest, which was our game of the night. Timberwolves 95, Clippers 94: With all their mistakes late, I have no idea how the Timberwolves pulled this…

  16. Baron Davis says playing for Clippers almost killed his love of the game

    Mar 5, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Right now, the Los Angeles Clippers are the most entertaining team to watch in the NBA. They are athletic, fast paced, smart thanks to Chris Paul at the helm. They are learning to be contenders. There is a buzz around their games that is reminiscent of that other team in Staples Center — the building…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s the Deron Williams show

    Mar 5, 2012, 5:18 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while suing your college because your dorm roommate had too much sex… Celtics 115, Knicks 111 (OT): Rajon Rondo dominated Jeremy Lin, put up a monster line — 18 points, 20 assists, 17 rebounds — and got the Celtics a big win in one of our games of the day. Lakers 93,…

  18. Video: Deron Williams drops 57 points on the Bobcats

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:10 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Deron Williams scored 57 points on just 29 shots against the Bobcats Sunday— he hit 16 of his shots and was 21-for-21 from the free throw line. You can see all of them above. Well, not the free throws, but everything else. It was an impressive performance — it is more points than any player…

  19. Jeremy Lin who? Rajon Rondo dominates in Celtics victory

    Mar 4, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Jeremy Lin, Boston Celtics, New York Knicks

    All-Star weekend, the Nets Deron Williams (who put up 38 on the Knicks) said all the hype around Jeremy Lin would have other teams’ point guards looking to take their frustrations out on the Knicks. Meet Rajon Rondo. The Celtics point guard had 18 points, 17 rebounds and 20 assists and dominated the Knicks in…

  20. Lots of people who Pau Gasol will not save want Pau Gasol

    Mar 4, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett and Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol compete for the ball in Boston

    It’s really interesting to watch the evolution of a player like Pau Gasol, not only from the public’s consciousness perspective, but from that nebulous aspect of basketball which metrics can’t define. Our ability to define efficiency and production is better than ever and shouldn’t be disregarded when considering Gasol’s value. But there is another part…

  21. Nene totally might have possibly gone to Houston if a trade that didn’t happen had happened. This is a thing, for some reason.

    Mar 3, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Nene nuggets

    I’m begging you to let this story die. No one’s happy with how the first Chris Paul trade fell apart. The NBA shouldn’t have owned the team, so that it wouldn’t have been in a position to turn down the trade as the owner (not the league; to say otherwise is basically twisting reality and…

  22. Suns shut down Blake Griffin, win ugly over the Clippers

    Mar 3, 2012, 3:39 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Channing Frye, Grant Hill

    As the starting lineups took the floor Friday night in Phoenix for a nationally televised contest between the Clippers and the Suns, the matchup that looked to be far and away the most favorable for L.A. was Channing Frye against Blake Griffin. Griffin, after all, leads the league in dunks, and is so athletically gifted…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another day, another Thunder comeback

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:22 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Ryan Anderson

    What you missed while taking Google to court because their “street view” map option caught you urinating in your front yard…. Miami 107, Trail Blazers 93: This score doesn’t do justice to how much the Heat dominated this game, which we broke down as our game of the night. Thunder 105, Magic 102: Who says…

  24. Celtics President Ainge says he anticipates Rondo “being here for a long time”

    Mar 1, 2012, 5:50 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The Rajon Rondo trade rumors have started up again, but Celtics President Danny Ainge is doing his best to downplay them. The Boston Herald has the report: Danny Ainge, despite another wave of Rajon Rondo trade speculation, said this afternoon that he expects the all-star point guard to still be a Celtic following the March…

  25. Report: Odom meets with Cuban, will return to Mavs soon

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:34 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Vince Carter

    Personal issues surrounding an illness with his father have kept Lamar Odom away from the Mavericks since before the All-Star break. But it’s more than just that — the entire fit with Dallas has been poor this season. Odom has not seemed happy and he is not one of those players who can compartmentalize his…
