Baseball Tonight @BBTN

Big 1st inning for Chicago! @Cubs bat around & score 5 runs off Carlos Martinez. Travis Wood with a hit & RBI before he takes the mound.

Chicago's work comes from outside-in

The closer you are to the rim, the easier it is to score, right? Not tonight for the Bulls, who are shooting better outside the paint (56.7%) than they are inside the paint (52.9%).

Carlos Martinez off to rocky start

The Cardinals allowed 4 runs in their previous 3 games. They've allowed 5 in the top of the 1st to the Cubs. (via ESPN Stats & Info) Watch live on ESPN/WatchESPN

ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo

With Chris Paul off the floor, Clippers were outscored by over 7.5 pts per 100 possessions, which would have ranked 27th in NBA.

Chris Paul's absence a touchy subject

Paul will not play in Game 1 vs. the Rockets. He's 1 of just 5 players averaging 100+ touches this postseason, joined on that list by teammate Blake Griffin. Said coach Doc Rivers on the injury: "I just don't think he's healthy enough to play. I guess in a Game 7 he could play but I don't think the risk is worth it."
