The beauty of Marc Gasol is that when the 7-foot-1, 265-pound center for the Memphis Grizzlies has it going the way he did Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center, almost every asset of his multifaceted game stands out. He is hitting three-pointers that no one expects him to make. He is recording seven assists, pounding the boards and muscling in shots around the basket. Gasol scored 27 points and had seven rebounds as the Grizzlies beat the Sixers, 103-100. He also made the defensive play of the night.

Deron Williams made an NBA-record nine three-pointers in the first half, finished with 11, and scored a season-high 42 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 95-78 victory over the Washington Wizards on Friday night in New York. Williams made his first eight shots behind the arc, became the first player in a decade to match the opposing team's score in the first half, and was one shy of the NBA record of 12 threes as the Nets opened a huge early lead and coasted. He missed with 1 minute, 8 seconds left, leaving him one shy of the record shared by Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall.

The Hornets have agreed in principle to deal Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers for guard Eric Gordon, forward Al-Farouq Aminu, center Chris Kaman and a first-round draft choice, people familiar with the deal said. Commissioner David Stern approved the trade on behalf of the league-owned team, people told the Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the NBA had not ratified the deal. The 26-year-old Paul is a four-time all-star who averaged 18.7 points and 9.8 assists last season, his sixth in the NBA. His move to the Clippers means he'll now be able to make alley-oop lobs to Blake Griffin, who averaged 22.5 points and 12.1 rebounds last season, his first in the NBA. The Hornets get a prolific young shooting guard in Gordon, who turns 23 on Christmas Day and averaged 22.3 points last season.

Yesterday, Detroit gave Richard Hamilton a 3-year contract extension. Last night, he rewarded their generosity by scoring 19 points to lead the Pistons to a 101-83 win over the host Charlotte Bobcats.

Rasheed Wallace added 15 points and four other players scored in double figures.

OKLAHOMA CITY Thunder forward James Harden underwent tests Monday following his concussion in the previous day's game against the Los Angeles Lakers and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. Harden participated in limited activities on Monday but must go through additional steps under the NBA's concussion policy before he is cleared to play again. Harden dropped to the floor after taking a vicious backward elbow to the head from Metta World Peace after the Lakers' forward had dunked over two Thunder players late in the second quarter of Los Angeles' double-overtime win Sunday.

CHRIS PAUL IS headed to Los Angeles for real this time - to the Clippers, not the Lakers. The Hornets have traded Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers for guard Eric Gordon, forward Al-Farouq Aminu, center Chris Kaman and a first-round draft choice. The deal required the approval of NBA commissioner David Stern because the Hornets are owned by the league. The move puts an end to a tortured week in which the Hornets' season sat in limbo while the NBA took a public relations beating over everything from potential conflicts of interest, to retarding the Hornets' pursuit of free agents, to disrespecting the New Orleans fan base.

After the 76ers set a new franchise standard for futility by losing 17 consecutive games to start the season, a loss to one of the NBA's elite teams may not seem like a big deal. But it's how they lost that pains the Sixers. They blew an 18-point, fourth-quarter advantage en route to suffering a 120-115 overtime embarrassment to the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center. "That is a cruel loss. That is a very cruel loss," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. The setback dropped the Sixers to 2-21 and extended their recent losing streak to three games.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Grizzlies sharpshooter Mike Miller slipped through the 76ers defense in the second quarter for a wide-open three-pointer, and, just before calling a timeout, Sixers coach Brett Brown threw a haymaker into the air. His team had competed valiantly for most of the first half, but the Grizzlies' lead had swelled to 12 because of a simple defensive lapse. Sequences like that one ultimately undid the 76ers in a 117-95 loss to the Grizzlies, their 31st loss in 33 games.

The Bulls wiped out a 14-point deficit late in regulation to beat the Brooklyn Nets, 142-134, in triple overtime Saturday in Chicago and take a three-games-to-none lead in the first-round playoff series. The Bulls were trailing, 109-95, with less than four minutes to go in the fourth quarter when Nate Robinson put the Bulls on his back and carried them to the wild victory. "I always think I'm on fire, kind of like the old-school game NBA Jam ," Robinson said. "You make a couple in a row, the rim's on fire.

LEBRON JAMES scored 25 points as the visiting Miami Heat overcame a 27-point deficit in the third quarter and won their 24th straight game, 98-95 over the short-handed Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night to extend the second-longest winning streak in NBA history. The Heat are within nine games of matching the record of 33 consecutive wins held by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers. James and his teammates have insisted the record isn't one of their goals, and for more than 30 minutes the defending champions seemed disinterested and on the verge of losing for the first time since Feb. 1. Miami trailed 67-40 with 7:44 left in the third quarter.

SOMETIMES THE game of basketball is an easy one. If you can set hard picks, cut hard to the basket, take care of the ball and get to where you're supposed to be on the defensive end in a timely fashion, good things usually happen. For the second straight game all those things were prominent for the 76ers at the start of the game. But good things haven't happened in twos in almost 2 months and the Sixers dropped a 103-100 decision to the visiting Memphis Grizzlies, denying them a second straight win for the first time since Nov. 30. Saturday, coach Doug Collins changed his starting lineup, and it proved beneficial as newly implemented starters Spencer Hawes and Nick Young helped the team jump out to a 12-2 lead in an eventual easy win over the New York Knicks.

IT DOESN'T matter that the Sixers were undone by a pair of last-minute offensive rebounds, or that they missed two good shots in the final moments. It doesn't matter that they blew a 17-point lead. What matters is that they emerged from the wilderness a bedraggled tribe, exhausted and starving for wins. Still, somehow, the promised land is in sight. The Sixers exited the toughest stretch of their fractured season barely breathing and hardly relevant. They went 7-19 after November until, in desperation, coach Doug Collins - a believer in bench balance - put all of his better scorers on the court at once.
