Chris Paul's near triple-double of 25 points, 11 assists, and seven rebounds were not enough to ward off elimination at the hands of the Thunder Thursday.
Paul finished the postseason averaging 19.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 10.4 assists but it was not enough to carry the Clippers to the Western Conference Finals. Although the Clippers are no longer playing second fiddle to the Lakers in Hollywood, there will need to be some adjustments made to the personnel if they want to take the next step forward and Paul will have a big say in how they approach this situation now that the season is over.

The Indians recalled Danny Salazar from Triple-A Columbus Saturday.
The expected move was announced Thursday after the Tribe felt they needed to push Carlos Carrasco (head/jaw) back to Monday. Salazar was dominant in his one Triple-A start, and as Fantasy Alarm's Brad Costilo noted earlier in the week, Salazar was very solid in his final 12 starts [of 2014], limiting opposing hitters to a .255 average/.668 OPS while striking out 1/4 of the batters he faced.
