Two weeks have passed since the NBA trading deadline, two weeks for Matt Barnes to contemplate his future with the Clippers. Barnes has elevated his game during that time, but it still appears to weigh on the small forward that he was among Clippers mentioned in trade talks with the New York Knicks. Rather than sulk, Barnes has seemed to use that as fuel for perhaps his best stretch of games all season. In six games after the trade deadline passed, Barnes averaged 17.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists before the Clippers played the Lakers on Thursday night at Staples Center.

The New York Knicks were reportedly working on a buyout of Metta World Peace's contract Saturday. But there was nothing even the notorious Knicks public relations machine could do about the tweets of Daniel Artest , World Peace's brother. Among the highlights: "Ron wanted to be a knick his entire career and his dream became a nightmare. Knicks need an overhaul. Top to bottom. "Well. At least I got some nice knick gear. " "I'm not threatening [owner Jim ] Dolan on twitter tho. Lol. Some fan is locked up for that.

The Clippers and the New York Knicks have engaged in trade talks centering around Clippers backup point guard Darren Collison and Knicks shooting guard Iman Shumpert, according to NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. With shooting guard J.J. Redick out indefinitely with a bulging disk in his lower back, Shumpert would provide the Clippers with an athletic guard and Jamal Crawford could move from being a starter back to his sixth-man role. Because Collison earns $1.9 million this season and Shumpert earns $1.7 million, the deal would work money-wise.

NEW YORK - The words of Chris Paul still rang in the ears of his Clippers teammates even though their leader was not with the team. "Something CP always says when we're on a road trip, 'Can't win them all without winning that first one,'" Blake Griffin said about Paul, who is out with a separated right shoulder and isn't on the trip with his teammates. And the Clippers did just that, starting their seven-game, 11-day trip with an impressive beating of the New York Knicks, 109-95, Friday night at Madison Square Garden.

An untidy mess It's been such an upside-down season for the New York Knicks that Metta World Peace might represent the voice of reason. Andrea Bargnani has shown a disdain for shot clocks, Coach Mike Woodson has stashed one too many timeouts in his back pocket and now J.R. Smith has become the shoelace bandit. The NBA fined the continually wayward guard $50,000 on Wednesday after Smith unsuccessfully tried to untie the shoelace of Detroit Pistons center Greg Monroe while standing at the free-throw line.

Everyone wants to snuggle with a Victoria's Secret model, right? This time it was Michelle Rodriguez, who with Cara Delavingne drew attention canoodling and otherwise having a good time courtside at Tuesday's New York Knicks game. The "Fast and Furious" and "Lost" actress, 35, looked a bit hammered after a while in photos that showed her and the Victoria's Secret Angel, 21, cuddling, kissing , whispering into each other's ears and generally acting in an outrageous manner. The two also puffed e-cigarettes and took selfies, which as of Wednesday morning were not posted on either woman's Twitter or Instagram accounts.

SAN ANTONIO - Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said an ESPN report about Los Angeles having a discussion about trading Blake Griffin to the New York Knicks for Carmelo Anthony was "so stupid. " Rivers clearly was upset about the report and about being asked about the so-called trade talks by reporters before the Clippers played the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night. Rivers said the Clippers aren't engaged in talks to trade Griffin for Anthony and aren't going to trade their All-Star power forward.
