MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies have a history of playing intense, tough, hard-nosed basketball games, during both the regular season and playoffs. That was the case again Friday night, the teams playing down to the wire and the Clippers coming up short in a 102-96 loss to the Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum. To make matters worse for the Clippers, All-Star guard point Chris Paul suffered a sprained right thumb late in the fourth quarter while trying to get a rebound against Marc Gasol.

"I [visit] every year at St. Jude," said Gasol on a telephone interview with The Times. "I do it a few times a year here at the children's hospital in L.A.

Lakers forward/center Pau Gasol has had an up-and-down season, recently playing through an ankle sprain that limited his mobility. "I felt better the last two games," Gasol said in a phone interview with The Times.  "More effective, more explosive. " In a loss to the Atlanta Hawks and a win over the Memphis Grizzlies, Gasol averaged 18.5 points while shooting 76.2% from the field. Conditioning has been a challenge for Gasol after off-season knee procedures to help alleviate tendinosis.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - If this were college football, it would've been the Injury Bowl. The Memphis Grizzlies played without Marc Gasol and Mike Conley, a big problem it turned out, while the Lakers continued to play NBA games without any healthy point guards. When it was over, the Lakers would have been the ones joyfully hoisting a brass trophy of a guy on crutches. Or parading around with a priceless crystal sculpture of a swollen ankle. BOX SCORE: Lakers 96, Memphis 92 They outlasted the Grizzlies, 96-92, Tuesday night, adding just enough feel-good indicators to finish their trip with a 2-2 record.
