Chris Paul

Chris Paul:

Chris Paul stole the Utah Jazz's comeback hopes and eased the New Orleans Hornets' road frustration.

With a four-point lead in danger of being cut in half, Paul stole the ball, ate a little time and then drove for a layup with 27 seconds left to help seal New Orleans' 91-87 victory over Utah on Monday night.

It was just the third road win for the Hornets this season and their first in Utah in almost four years.

"It's big for us, especially with how terrible we've played on the road this year," said Paul, who had 12 points, nine assists and three steals.

Clippers 105, Trail Blazers 95: Chris Kaman scored 20 points, Eric Gordon added 19 and Los Angeles pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat Portland in the teams' second matchup in five days. The Clippers ended Portland's four-game winning streak against them at Staples Center.

Wizards: Gilbert Arenas says he took unloaded guns from his locker in a "misguided effort to play a joke" on a teammate. He released a written statement Monday after meeting with law enforcement officials.

Arenas denied threatening or assaulting anyone. The New York Post has reported that Arenas and teammate Javaris Crittenton drew guns on each other.

Lakers: Forward Pau Gasol has a mild to moderate strained left hamstring and is doubtful for tonight game against Houston. He is listed as day to day.
