Chris Paul returned from a night of rest and hit 12-of-18 shots, four 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws on his way to 34 points, five rebounds, nine assists, four steals and a block in Wednesday's gritty win over the Suns.
Both teams treated this as a real game, which was a nice change from some of the other games tonight. CP3 was fantastic, and if he could score like this on a more consistent basis, we'd be more likely to tell you to take him before guys like Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook. Oct 23 - 1:52 AM

Chris Paul said he is beginning the 2014-15 season with improved mental toughness.

Following a tumultuous 2013-14 season that included the Donald Sterling saga and a second-round playoff exit, Paul is beginning 2014-15 on a positive note. "Mental toughness is one of the things I always thought I was strong in but I worked on that this summer," Paul said. "You can always get better at different things. Doc talked to us about not having any bad days." While his detractors will say that Paul has yet to play a full 82-game season in his career, the 29-year-old is still a sure-fire first round pick headed into fantasy drafts.

Chris Paul said it's "unacceptable" if Donald Sterling is still the owner of the team when the season begins and he could sit out in an effort to boycott the Clippers.

"That's something me and Doc are both talking about," Paul said. "Something has to happen, and something needs to happen soon -- sooner rather than later." Donald Sterling keeps dragging this drama out with multiple lawsuits, but the NBA seems like they'll take over the Clippers on Sept. 15.

Chris Paul made the 2013-14 NBA All-Defensive First Team.

Paul lead the league in steals this year with 2.5 per game, which is the fourth consecutive year he's lead the league in that category, and sixth time in his career. This is Paul's fourth appearance on the All-Defensive First Team, and he is the first Clipper in franchise history to be named to an All-Defensive Team.
Jun 2 - 2:23 PM

Chris Paul played well in Thursday's season-ending loss to the Thunder with 25 points, seven rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

After a ridiculous start to the series with a 32-point outing in Game 1, Paul averaged a very solid line of 20.6 points, 12.4 assists, 3.0 steals and 1.4 triples in 39.6 minutes in his last five. The Clippers lost four of those five games despite how Paul turned it over just 2.4 times per game in that span and the Clippers didn't make too many sloppy mistakes. CP3's range flourished a bit down the stretch and coach Doc Rivers has made him an even better player. He's a stud.
May 16 - 1:29 AM

Chris Paul disagreed with current Clippers owner Donald Sterling's statement that his players still love him.

In reacting to Sterling's CNN interview with Anderson Cooper, Paul didn't agree with Sterling's assessment that his players still love him. "I don’t know about all that. We’re here. We’re focused," Paul said. "I love my wife, my kids, my family, my teammates. Yeah." With the Clippers and Thunder deadlocked heading into Tuesday's Game 5, the Clippers and Paul can't seem to escape the specter of Sterling's comments that have put his ownership of the team in jeopardy, and they'll have to quickly shift their focus from their embattled owner to the formidable Thunder.
May 13 - 1:52 PM

Chris Paul scored 17 points with five rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes vs. the Thunder during Wednesday's Game 2 loss.

He got into a bit of foul trouble and wasn't as confident with his stroke as he was on Monday. Paul received a technical foul on the bench in the fourth quarter, which upset coach Doc Rivers during the blowout. This was one of his worst games on the defensive end, but it probably has little to do with the hamstring injury that bothered him in the first round vs. the Warriors.
May 8 - 12:36 AM

Chris Paul had one of the best offensive games of his career during Monday's easy 122-105 win over the Thunder, making 12-of-14 from the field for 32 points with, two boards, 10 assists, eight 3-pointers and two turnovers.

The eight treys gave him an absurd effective field goal percentage of 114.3. His eight treys were a career high and it was also just the fourth time he's turned in a effective field goal percent greater than 100 in his career, so it's not much of a stretch to say this was his best offensive game ever. He's obviously not going to be this hot, but the Clippers were in complete control in half-court sets tonight with only 10 of their 122 points coming via fast-break. They led the NBA in offensive efficiency during the regular season and coach Scott Brooks found out why quickly tonight.
May 6 - 12:35 AM

Chris Paul said that his hamstring is fine as the Clippers gear up for the second round of the playoffs.

CP3 fought through his injury vs. the Warriors and posted 22 points, 14 assists and four steals in Game 7, and the Clippers will only go as far as he's able to take them this postseason. His hamstring injury is still on the radar, but for now it appears he'll play without limitations.
May 5 - 1:58 PM

Chris Paul labored through his hamstring injury during Game 7's 126-121 over the Warriors, scoring 22 points with two boards, 14 assists, four steals and one 3-pointer.

It was probably his best game of the series on his way to his 23rd postseason double-double. Paul attempted 5.7 attempts per game from beyond the arc in this series, which has been an added focus to his game considering he shot just 3.4 per game during the regular season. Paul won't get much time to rest up for Game 1 against the Thunder on Monday. As a side note, all three home teams won today and are now 94-24 during Game 7s in NBA history.
May 4 - 2:06 AM

Chris Paul is playing through a thumb injury on his right (shooting) hand.

Perhaps it's one of the reasons Paul is shooting just 40.2 percent in the series, way off his career mark of 47.2 percent. The woes culminated in an ugly nine-point outing in Thursday's Game 6 loss. Paul has also been battling a hamstring issue throughout the series, but he's obviously going to play in Game 7. We'd just be a little wary of expecting the CP3 we all know to suddenly show up and dominate.
May 2 - 9:00 AM

Chris Paul battled through leg and hand issues during Thursday's 100-99 loss to the Warriors, finishing with nine boards, five rebounds, eight assists and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

The training staff spent a lot time working on his left hand, but there was no word of Paul getting an X-ray. He's also been dealing with a hamstring strain for the entire postseason and tonight may have been his toughest test. CP3 hasn't been at his best in this entire series and he'll look to get it going in Game 7 on Saturday. There should be plenty of updates on his status in the next couple days.
May 2 - 1:44 AM

Chris Paul made just 6-of-17 from the field for 20 points during Game 5's 113-103 win over the Warriors on Tuesday, adding six boards, seven assists, five steals and three 3-pointers.

His biggest contributions didn't come in the box score and he played outstanding perimeter defense. Although, Paul became the first player since Rajon Rondo in 2010 to total at least 20 points, seven assists and five steals in a playoff game and he's played great despite some increased press going to teammate DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin. The Clippers had a huge win on a big stage with all the off-the-court issues surrounding them and they'll look to close out this series on Thursday at ORACLE Arena.
Apr 30 - 1:58 AM

Chris Paul and the Clippers didn't play well during Sunday's 118-97 loss to the Warriors in Game 4 with Paul's 16 points, five boards, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

Due to the idiotic racist comments from Clippers owner Donald Sterling, Paul said his team talked about not even playing in today's game, and they did make some statements at ORACLE Arena. They took off their official shooting shirts and put them on the floor at halfcourt during warmups and also played with black wrist bands and socks. It's nice to see the players have a lot more class than their owner and they'll get to play in front of the home crowd on Tuesday in Game 5.
Apr 27 - 6:45 PM

An NBA spokesman said the league is "conducting a full investigation" into TMZ's "disturbing and offensive" audio recording of Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

Sterling makes numerous racist comments during the nine minutes of audio, including asking his girlfriend, who is black and Mexican, not to be seen with black people at Clippers games. Sterling's presence as an owner and member of the league's Board of Governors is a blight on the NBA's reputation and threatens to sully its image around the globe, so hopefully the league will react forcefully to his latest debacle.
