TSN presents a full day of NBA action on Thursday, including Pau Gasol facing his former team as the Chicago Bulls take on the Los Angeles Lakers and Stephen Curry and NBA-leading Warriors facing the Los Angeles Clippers. Mason Rudolph Steelers Jersey . Watch all five Christmas games on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5. Lakers vs. Bulls After winning a couple titles alongside Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol is a major reason why the Chicago Bulls are thinking big. Gasol faces his former team for the first time as the surging Bulls host the Los Angeles Lakers, who should have Bryant available on Christmas night after pulling off a huge upset without him. You can watch the game live on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, TSN5 at 8pm et/5pm pt. Gasol signed a three-year, $22 million deal with Chicago this summer following six-plus seasons with the Lakers, including championship runs in 2009 and 10. The Spanish big man is averaging 18.0 points and what would be a career-best 11.4 rebounds. Emotional, weird, hard to focus, but at the same time I kind of look forward to it in a way, he said of Thursdays showdown. To see some of the people that Ive been through a lot with. ... Just makes Christmas a little more special. Gasols arrival has provided a huge lift for the Bulls (19-9), who have climbed atop the Central Division behind a 7-1 run. Chicago is on the verge of a season-best fifth consecutive victory after winning 99-91 at Washington on Tuesday. Derrick Rose came up big again with 10 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter after scoring 15 of his 29 over the final 12 minutes against Toronto the night before. Rose is averaging 22.7 points on 50.9 percent shooting over his last six games and is starting to look more and more like his old self. Hes having fun out there. When hes playing, hes playing at a really high level. A lot of guys are stepping up, it just feels good to have Derrick back on the court, center Joakim Noah said. Its real, Chicago Bulls are getting healthy again. Its very real. ... We know the skys the limit for our team. Our confidence is getting better, and were just going to keep working. Its all coming and its going to be a special year. It appears the Bulls will get their first glimpse of Bryant in two seasons with the 16-time All-Star expected to return after sitting out Tuesdays surprising 115-105 win over NBA-leading Golden State due to rest, his first absence since missing last seasons final 57 games with a fractured left knee. The 36-year-old Bryant is averaging 24.6 points and over 35 minutes while shooting just 37.2 percent, way down from his career mark of 45.2. Looking at our schedule coming up, I just thought it was a good time to give him a day of rest and let him prepare for the next game, coach Byron Scott said. Hes on board with it. ... Youve got to remember - this is 19 years in this league. Thats an unbelievable career. I dont care how much his mind is willing. Youre not going to be able to play 82 games at the level that he is accustomed to playing. The Lakers (9-19), who snapped a three-game losing streak, shot 51.7 percent against the Warriors for their highest mark in 12 games. Former Bulls forward Carlos Boozer scored 18 points off the bench to lead seven players in double figures while Ronnie Price finished with 17 points - his most in three years. Like Gasol, this game could have extra significance for Boozer, who landed in Los Angeles after the Bulls used the amnesty clause to cut him this offseason. I think he should get some love, Noah said of his former teammate. Carlos was big part of this team for four years, and somebody who fought hard every night. The Bulls had dropped seven straight against Los Angeles before taking five of the last six meetings. Noah is averaging 18.3 points and 17.0 boards during a three-game stretch in the series. Rose hasnt faced the Lakers since scoring 22 points - including the winning basket with 5 seconds left - in an 88-87 road victory on Christmas Day in 2011 in what was both teams first game following the lockout. Rose is averaging 24.6 points against Los Angeles for his second-highest mark against any team. Bryant is averaging 30.4 points over his last nine games on Christmas. Warriors vs. Clippers Stephen Curry and the NBA-leading Golden State Warriors have been one of the seasons big stories, and theyre excited to showcase their talents on the biggest of stages. The Los Angeles Clippers also have earned plenty of accolades, though theyre trying to put an end to a recent rough patch. The high-scoring Pacific Division rivals will go toe-to-toe Thursday night at Staples Center in the fifth and final game of the leagues much-anticipated Christmas Day slate. You can watch the game live on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, TSN5 at 10:30pm et/7:30pm pt. Theres big moments throughout the course of the season that you enjoy, Curry said, and you have fun showing what you can do. Curry has averaged 23.4 points in leading Golden State to a 23-4 start - at least three fewer losses than every other team. The Warriors are third in the league in scoring with 108.1 points per game, while Los Angeles (19-10) ranks fourth at 106.8. Theyre really good, Clippers coach Doc Rivers told the NBAs official website. But we are, too. Golden State came out on the losing end of a seven-game, first-round series against Los Angeles this past spring, but it took this seasons first meeting 121-104 on Nov. 5. Curry poured in 28 points to lead all scorers, Draymond Green added 24 and the Warriors shot a season-best 58.1 percent. The Warriors have strung together six consecutive regular-season home victories in the series, but have dropped 15 of 20 road matchups since 2004-05 - including the last three by an average of 16.6 points. Playing on Christmas Day is special, forward David Lee said. You know its a bigger stage than a normal regular-season game would be, and we enjoy that and we enjoy the challenge of facing a good Clippers team that we beat once this year. Its two teams that have had fun the last couple years playing against one another. Golden State has split its last four overall following a franchise-best 16-game winning streak, with both defeats coming on the road. The Warriors were handed a 115-105 loss against the Lakers on Tuesday despite Kobe Bryant getting the night off to rest. They kicked our (butts). They were much better than we were, said coach Steve Kerr, whose team had 20 assists negated by as many turnovers. We werent ready to play. We started turning the ball over immediately. We never had any energy, which is going to happen occasionally in the NBA with 82 games. Thats where we have to improve, you have to be able to stay in games with your defense. Aside from Tuesdays display, the Warriors have mostly shined on that end of the floor. They lead the NBA with a defensive rating of 96.9 - the number of points allowed per 100 possessions - and are holding teams to a league-low 42.2 percent shooting. That doesnt bode well for a Clippers team that shot just 40.2 percent in Tuesdays 107-104 loss at Atlanta, their worst mark in 26 games. Los Angeles also fell 125-118 at San Antonio the night before to drop to 3-5 since Dec. 12. Im fine with where were playing, Rivers said. It was a tough trip. Im not going to over-analyze it. Blake Griffin finished with 21 points, eight rebounds and a career high-tying 11 assists against the Hawks, while DeAndre Jordan scored 15 to go with 22 boards. Jordan has averaged 16.5 points on 82.8 percent shooting and 17.0 rebounds over a four-game stretch against the Warriors, including playoffs. Despite their recent efforts, the Clippers wont be making any excuses Thursday. If you cant find energy for that game, thats a problem, Griffin said. I think well be ready for that game. Getting back home could make all the difference for Los Angeles, which has won each of its seven games there this month by an average of 14.7 points. Griffin is averaging 29.6 points on 52.5 percent shooting over a five-game stretch at Staples and the Clippers are 9-1 at home when hes scored at least 21. All-Star point guard Chris Paul is averaging 22.9 points against the Warriors since joining Los Angeles in 2011-12, his highest mark against any team during that span. Mason Rudolph Jersey .The McLaren MP4-30 was launched on Thursday, with chief executive Ron Dennis saying it marks the start of a lengthy journey back to winning grands prix and eventually world championships.McLaren, which hasnt won a grand prix since 2012, will be using Honda engines for the first time since 1992, and has signed two-time world champion Fernando Alonso to partner Jenson Button for the upcoming season. James Washington Steelers Jersey .com) - Sixth-seeded Feliciano Lopez was a first-round winner on Monday at the Delray Beach Open tennis event. http://www.steelerspronfl.com/Youth-Terr...te-Jersey/ . -- Those impatient for the Stanley Cup to return to Canada will have just one team to root for in the NHL playoffs -- the Montreal Canadiens. ST. LOUIS -- The overflow crowd at Rams Park did not intimidate Michael Sam. He seemed almost eager for the attention and scrutiny. The first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team was confident and engaged Tuesday as he was formally introduced by the St. Louis Rams, handling questions and scrutiny with aplomb well beyond that of a typical seventh-round pick. "Im determined to be great," Sam said. "I understand that right now you guys want to make a big deal of it." Sam put his arm around coach Jeff Fisher after sharing the podium with other late-round picks. He joked that hed never before heard the term "tweener" and even rose in his chair in mock intimidation of fellow Missouri draftee E.J. Gaines, a sixth-rounder whod been asked what the SEC co-defensive player of the year was like as a teammate. Sam, who came out to teammates and coaches before his senior season at Missouri, disagreed that his sexuality had been a secret. "Apparently, everybody else makes a big deal out of it," Sam said. "But my teammates and my school didnt." "Its OK to be who you are," he added. "Whether youre gay, straight, black or white, its OK to be comfortable in your own skin." After getting the go-ahead from owner Stan Kroenke and making the pick Saturday, Fisher called it a "second historic moment" for a franchise that signed running back Kenny Washington in 1946 as the NFLs first black player in the modern era. Just as in his post-draft teleconference with St. Louis media that was sprinkled with salty language, Sam was feisty. Hes had a few months to get accustomed to the role of trailblazer instead of a silent star. Sure, hes a role model. Right now hed much rather be the Rams description of "designated pass rusher." "I will always support equality, period," Sam said. "But my job is to focus on football and help this team win a championship." The appearance of perhaps the most famous seventh-round pick in NFL history attracted a massive amount of people. A half-dozen TV trucks lined a crammed parking lot at Rams Park, an hour before the teams two first-round picks were due at the podium. About 80 media members attended the news conferences. Three days earlier when the Rams chose Sam with the No. 249 overall pick, the media contingent was in single digits. "Theres some energy here," general manager Les Snead said with a smile between rounds of interviews. "But I dont think this is a circus. This deserves attention, but well get it over and well get to work." Sam shared the dais with five other players taken in the sixth and seventh rounds Saturday as the draft came to a close. Steelers Jerseys. Snead joked that Tennessee State centre Demetrius Rhaney, taken one pick after Sam at 250th overall, should get the first question after it got lost in the hubbub Saturday. "Im not sure anybody knows we drafted Demetrius," Snead said, adding that he hoped someday that pick 249 will someday be a footnote in sports history, and not such a big deal. For Sams subsequent solo session with reporters, he was flanked by Fisher and Snead, with Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff joining the group. Everyone seemed eager to embrace Sam. Second-round pick Lamarcus Joyner, a cornerback from Florida State, has never had an openly gay teammate. He applauded Sams decision. "Hes a courageous young man," Joyner said. "Hes a brave young man that we need in this organization." The teams two first-round picks were first to the podium. Offensive tackle Greg Robinson, chosen second overall, sported a bow tie. Both got their due. Both welcomed Sam to the family. Robinson and Sam did a TV commercial together for a credit card company. Aaron Donald met Sam at ceremonies for the Lombardi and Nagurski awards. "Hes a cool guy," Donald said. "Hes a football player, he works his butt off and thats what you want. You want playmakers around you and hes a playmaker. Third-round pick Tre Mason, a running back from Auburn, said Sam was a "man of his own and hes entitled to do that." "Were a team and hes also a family member to me now." Sam will put on the pads later in the week when the team holds a three-day rookie orientation, much, if not all of it, closed to the media. The Rams drafted Sam even though they didnt need help at defensive end, where they have a pair of first-round picks as starters. Robert Quinn was second in the NFL with 19 sacks last season and Chris Long has been a standout since getting chosen second overall in 2008. But the Rams were well-stocked with picks, finishing with 11 selections, putting them in unique position to make history. "Shortly before we got to our pick, Michaels value as a football player was off the charts," Fisher said. "He has an opportunity now to come in and compete to try to make our team." Sam realizes its up to him to make the most of this chance, and he bristles at the naysayers who contend hes in the NFL only because he came out. "Will I make the cut?" he said, repeating a question. "You want to find out in a couple months, huh?"
