Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison continues to post big numbers with Jamal Crawford out of the lineup.
Insight: Collison is averaging 18.0 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 4.0 apg, 1.8 spg over the past six games. Crawford has missed four of the past five games and apparently came back too soon from his calf injury and could miss more time.
Description: Ondrej Palat was involved in all three Tampa Bay goals Monday in a loss to Phoenix.
Insight: Palat (17 goals, 25 assists) scored two goals of his own and assisted on another. The six shots Palat fired on net were more than he had in his previous three games combined (four). The Lightning have now lost four straight.
Description: Oakland catcher Derek Norris will be out a few days longer to due a tightness in his back.
Insight: That\'s not good for a guy who has to squat for the next six months. Norris is expected to do the majority of the A\'s catching this season. He batted .246 with nine homers and 30 RBI in 264 at-bats last season.

Insight: Revis is costing the Buccaneers an absurd amount of money ($16 million a season) but it\'s hard to believe they\'d be willing to trade their best player after he arrived in Tampa less than a year ago. The 28-year-old is set to earn a $1.5 million roster bonus later this week.
Description: By voiding the final two years of his contract, defensive end Jason Babin has officially become a free agent. SOURCE: John Clayton, ESPN
Insight: Babin recorded 7.5 sacks with Jacksonville last season. He was one of the best pass rushers in the league while with Philadelphia, collecting a career-best 18 sacks during the 2011 campaign. Maybe a change of scenery will do him some good.
