AROUND THE WEB:

— When Clippers coach Doc Rivers was asked Monday about the knee injury to Stephen Curry that will sideline the Warriors star for about two weeks, Rivers brought up the 2010 Celtics when they lost Kendrick Perkins in Game 6 of the NBA Finals — and that comparison led to some chuckles due to the obvious difference in the players’ abilities. Now, however, Rivers has a more appropriate comparison.

Clippers guard Chris Paul broke his hand in Monday night’s 98-84 loss to the Trail Blazers and is expected to need season-ending surgery.

Paul had scored 16 points in 24 minutes, but midway through the third quarter he tried to slow down a driving Gerald Henderson and appeared to get his right hand stuck in the back of Henderson’s jersey. The result is a fracture of the third metacarpal in Paul’s right hand. He went to the bench shortly after the play and headed to the locker room with a trainer, showing his frustration by kicking a seat cushion on the way.

“It obviously doesn’t look very good for him,” Rivers said. “For this to happen to him, he’s a very emotional guy. … The whole team was in the training room. It’s nice in that way, but the reality is you don’t have Chris Paul.”

To make matters worse for Los Angeles, Blake Griffin missed most of the fourth quarter after aggravating a left quad injury that he initially suffered on Christmas Day and caused him to miss about half the season. Rivers said Griffin is 50-50 for Game 5.

“It doesn’t look good for him, either,” Rivers said.

The Clippers went 3-5 during the regular season when Paul was out of the lineup.

“They’re a different team without him,” Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts said.

The Clippers and Warriors, fierce rivals, would meet in the second round if both teams advance. The Clippers now are tied 2-2, while the Warriors have a 3-1 lead on the Rockets.

— Tigers outfielder Tyler Collins apologized for giving Detroit fans the middle finger during Monday night’s 7-3 victory over the A’s, after they booed him for a defensive miscue.

In the sixth inning, Collins lost Marcus Semien’s pop-up in the lights. Teammate Justin Upton then mishandled the ball, allowing Semien to get to third base. As the fans rained boos, Collins flipped the bird and mouthed some expletives toward the crowd.

Collins, a 25-year-old backup who is batting .105 with one RBI, acknowledged that his frustration got the best of him.

That hurt,” Collins said of the play. “To be at home and to hear boos after that play hit a trigger inside of me and I lashed out completely inappropriately. I’m absolutely embarrassed that happened and I’m very sorry to everybody in Detroit. I just want you guys to understand that I love this team and I want to win. So when we come home and get booed, it’s tough to swallow. But like I said, I apologize completely. I’m embarrassed at myself. I know my family’s embarrassed at me. I’m sure these guys are, too. I’m sorry it happened.”

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said he did not see Collins make the gesture, but he was told about it and checked the video, then talked to his player.

“It’s clearly something that can’t happen,” Ausmus said. “As a matter of fact, I spoke to Tyler immediately in the dugout, in the tunnel after it happened. And I spoke to him after the game. He regrets it. It was an emotional reaction. He regrets it. He knows it was wrong.”

— One month after being awarded $55 million by a Tennessee jury, former ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews settled her lawsuit against the owner and operator of a Nashville hotel where a stalker recorded video of her naked.

The jury had held West End Hotel Partners and Windsor Capital Group responsible for $27 million, and the stalker, Michael David Barrett, $28 million. However, Andrews’ lawyers reportedly were prepared to argue Monday that the companies should be responsible for the full amount. That is, until the settlement was announced.

“This litigation is over,” said Randall Kinnard, Andrews’ attorney. “Erin Andrews is satisfied with the settlement, the terms of which are confidential.”

Andrews, who now works for Fox Sports as well as ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” gets to avoid having the case drag out on appeal, which could have forced her to revisit her emotional testify about the incident.
