In what has become his typical way of dealing with an injury, Clippers point guard Chris Paul said Wednesday that his right hamstring injury wasn't an issue. Paul assured reporters that he will play when the Clippers meet the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference first-round playoff series Thursday night in Oakland. The best-of-seven series is tied at 1-1. “I'll be ready,” Paul said. “I'll be ready.” Paul didn't practice Tuesday, and Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said he wouldn't practice Wednesday either.

The NBA issued a statement Sunday that said Clippers point guard Chris Paul was fouled by Golden State forward Draymond Green when he lost control of the ball and should have been awarded two free throws during Game 1 of the first-round playoff series Saturday at Staples Center. “Just prior to the ball going out of bounds, Paul was fouled by Green and Paul should have been granted two free throws,” the NBA statement said. “Contact preceding out of bounds calls is not a reviewable matter.” For the Clippers, it was too little, too late to hear that the league office was being transparent about its officials missing a call during Los Angeles' 109-105 loss to Golden State.

Chris Paul couldn't stop watching the play. Once. Twice. Again. Another time. It bothered him that he didn't make the right call in a late three-on-one, getting his shot blocked by Harrison Barnes instead of passing to J.J. Redick. That didn't even compare with the two free throws he missed with 11 seconds left in the Clippers' 109-105 loss to Golden State in Saturday's playoff opener. Long night for Paul. Long Sunday too.

"What's my motivation?" is a standard laugh line satirizing the acting profession, a livelihood in which it's not always clear why one is doing what one needs to do. At the moment, Daniel Beaty and Keith David may be the two American actors least likely to say it. They are playing (and singing) the role of Paul Robeson in two separate plays on two separate Los Angeles stages. Their shared motivation is telling a story that is the ultimate retort to the idea that there's an unbridgeable gap between being a performer and living a serious life.
