Clippers All-Star point guard Chris Paul and Warriors point guard Stephen Curry are two of the best in the NBA. Paul, who averages 19.2 points per game, leads the NBA in assists (11.3)

OAKLAND -- Tis the season to be jolly? Not so much with the Clippers and Golden State Warriors. Though the Clippers will play the Warriors in Oakland on Christmas night, don't expect the teams to be full of good tidings toward each other because in the past year there has been more acrimony than kindness. The teams couldn't even hold chapel service together when the Clippers played host to the Warriors on Halloween Night at Staples Center. Golden State was angry, saying this violated the NBA custom of teams holding chapel service together, calling it a spiteful gesture by Los Angeles.

PHOENIX - It makes Lakers fans cringe to remember the Smush Parker era, a two-year span decidedly more goofy than golden and characterized by first-round playoff knockouts via the Phoenix Suns. But what's Parker up to these days? Can the Lakers sign him for a few weeks? Down to their fifth-string point guard, the Lakers rode the lead horse in a turnover parade Saturday against Golden State, committing 24 turnovers with only 11 assists, one of the most unbalanced assist-to-turnover ratios in team history.

It's 5 a.m. on a rooftop parking lot in downtown Santa Ana and the night sky is just beginning to fade. Under a lamp's orange glow, people in hoodies and sweat pants emerge from the stairwell, wiping the sleep from their eyes and hugging themselves against the cold. "You guys ready?" asks Marc Payan, clutching a mug of coffee in one hand, his phone in the other. On his command, about 100 people lunge around the concrete lot, then quickly step into two long lines facing each other.

OAKLAND - Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash didn't join the Lakers on their trip but it somehow got worse. Pau Gasol couldn't even leave his hotel room Saturday because of an upper-respiratory infection. To say the Lakers were injury-riddled, short-handed, depleted or any of the other common phrases would be a series of understatements. GAME SUMMARY: Warriors 102, Lakers 83 They're running out of bodies quickly, their latest ailment a surprise that led to something predictable, a 102-83 loss to the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena.

OAKLAND -- Already short-handed, the Lakers will play Golden State tonight without Pau Gasol. Gasol had one of his best games of the season Friday against Minnesota, but has been sidelined a day later because of an upper respiratory infection. Chris Kaman will start in Gasol's place. "We'll give him an opportunity," Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni said. "He played well [Friday] night so I'm sure he's looking forward to it. " Kaman had six points and three rebounds in 16 minutes of the Lakers' 104-91 victory over Minnesota.

The Lakers (13-13) can leapfrog the ninth-place Golden State Warriors (14-13) with a win on Saturday night in Oakland. To do so, they'll need to win a road game on the second night of back-to-back games despite playing without Kobe Bryant (knee), Steve Blake (elbow), Jordan Farmar (hamstring) and Steve Nash (back). The Lakers have already split a pair against the Warriors. Their last visit to Golden State was also on the second night of back-to-back games early in the season, with the Warriors dominating in a 125-94 win. Golden State has struggled recently after losing forward Andre Iguodala to a hamstring injury he sustained during a loss Nov. 22 against the Lakers at Staples Center.

The Lakers lost at Golden State on the second night of the season, 125-94, but beat the Warriors a few weeks later, 102-95, at Staples Center.

The NBA's most notorious villains have largely gone on to disappoint true crime fans. Stephen Jackson gave up his guns and earned the trust of a coach who made him a team captain. Zach Randolph became a brute force against poverty, repeatedly winning the league's Kia Community Assist Award for his work helping underprivileged families. Metta World Peace mingled calmly among the masses, raising money and awareness for mental health organizations. Second, third and fourth chances have mostly worked out for players once perceived as thugs, a few minor slip-ups and James Harden's head notwithstanding.

  A star who had been missing far too long for the Lakers' liking made his return Friday night at Staples Center. You know, Pau Gasol. OK, so the center technically hasn't sat out a game this season, unlike more celebrated teammates Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash. He had been a nonentity for some time, though, making his re-emergence during the Lakers' 102-95 victory over the Golden State Warriors a feel-good story on two fronts. Gasol helped the Lakers and the citizens of the Philippines, his 24 points and 10 rebounds triggering a $24,000 donation to a UNICEF fund established to assist victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
