Nov. 21 7:43 AM PT8:43 AM MT9:43 AM CT10:43 AM ET15:43 GMT23:43 8:43 AM MST10:43 AM EST19:43 UAE16:4310:43 ET9:43 AM CTNaN:� - Pau Gasol scored six points Monday on 2-of-6 shooting as the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Atlanta Hawks 96-85.

Since shooting 2 for 11 against Phoenix on Nov. 5, Gasol is 18 for 26 from the field, including 7 for 9 from deep, in his last three games.
Nov. 10 8:06 PM PT9:06 PM MT10:06 PM CT11:06 PM ET4:06 GMT12:06 9:06 PM MST11:06 PM EST8:06 UAE05:0623:06 ET10:06 PM CTNaN:� - Pau Gasol scored eight points Friday, going 2 of 6 from the field, as the San Antonio Spurs lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 94-87.

Analysis: Gasol will have off-shooting nights like this one every once in a while, though he's still hit at a 50.8 percent rate from the field over his last seven games. The 37-year-old is averaging a useful 10.9 points, 8.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.6 blocks during that span.

Oct. 27 7:33 PM PT8:33 PM MT9:33 PM CT10:33 PM ET2:33 GMT10:33 7:33 PM MST9:33 PM EST6:33 UAE (+1)04:3322:33 ET9:33 PM CTNaN:� - Pau Gasol scored 12 points Friday on 5-of-7 shooting as the San Antonio Spurs fell to the Orlando Magic 114-87.

Oct. 26 10:18 PM PT11:18 PM MT12:18 AM CT1:18 AM ET5:18 GMT13:18 10:18 PM MST12:18 AM EST9:18 UAE07:181:18 ET12:18 AM CTNaN:� - Pau Gasol scored 13 points Wednesday on 5-of-8 shooting as the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Miami Heat 117-100. Gasol pulled down nine rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 19:00 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
Analysis: Despite a terrible start to the season, the 37-year-old does still have something left and showed it with a solid performance on this night. Gasol may no longer be the fantasy sure-thing he was in his younger days, but there are worse options to choose from at the center spot.
Oct. 24 11:15 PM PT12:15 AM MT1:15 AM CT2:15 AM ET6:15 GMT14:15 11:15 PM MST1:15 AM EST10:15 UAE08:152:15 ET1:15 AM CTNaN:� - Pau Gasol scored one point Monday, going 0 of 6 from the field, as the San Antonio Spurs topped the Toronto Raptors 101-97. Gasol pulled down seven rebounds and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of +7 in his 22:00 of playing time. He added three blocks.
Analysis: Gasol may be three years younger than the 40-year-old Manu Ginobili, but he's looked like that oldest player on the Spurs' roster in the early going. The declining center is 6 for 22 from the field while failing to score more than 10 points in any of the first three games. He is still consistently contributing as a rebounder, passer and shot-blocker, but clearly isn't the point-producer he once was.

July 21 1:12 PM PT2:12 PM MT3:12 PM CT4:12 PM ET20:12 GMT4:12 1:12 PM MST3:12 PM EST0:12 UAE (+1)22:1216:12 ET3:12 PM CTNaN:� - A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Gasol has agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the San Antonio Spurs. The 7-foot Spaniard and the Spurs came to agreement on Friday on a deal that is partially guaranteed for the third season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not made an official announcement.
Analysis: Gasol declined the $16 million option on his contract in June with the intent of signing a longer-term deal with the Spurs. The Spurs re-signed Patty Mills and added free agents Rudy Gay and Brandon Paul. Gasol averaged 12.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 25.4 minutes for the Spurs last season. ESPN first reported the agreement.
