Chris Paul had 23 points and seven assists while Blake Griffin added 15 points, seven boards and seven assists in Wednesday's 104-98 road win vs. the Pistons.
CP3 made 9-of-12 shots including three 3-pointers, and he and Griffin had it going most of the game vs. Detroit's defense. "This is our fourth year together ... we both realize our bread and butter used to be when I would attack downhill and [Griffin] was rolling to the basket," Paul said. "So we are trying to mix that in more." An emphasis on pick-and-rolls should only help the Clippers' All-Stars for fantasy purposes, but they're both elite options no matter which plays they're running. Nov 26 - 10:55 PM

Chris Paul played one of his best games of the season in a 113-92 win over the Hornets, handing out a season-high 15 assists to go with 22 points, five rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

When CP3 checked out for the first time, the Clippers were extremely flat, so coach Doc Rivers put his star point guard back in the game much sooner than usual. Paul is playing some of the best ball of his career with 129 assists to go with just 19 turnovers.
Nov 24 - 11:30 PM

Chris Paul had just one turnover in Thursday's 110-93 win over the Heat to go with 26 points, two rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers on 8-of-13 from the field.

The Clippers put up 39 points in the first quarter with a magnificent offensive rating of 169.6. They were first in the NBA in that category last year, but they only rank sixth so far this year. As for Paul, he's been the No. 3 player in fantasy leagues so far on the season -- fitting for CP3.
Nov 20 - 11:55 PM

Chris Paul was too much for the Suns on Saturday during a 120-107 win, making 10-of-13 from the field for 32 points with five rebounds, nine assists, two steals and five 3-pointers.`

A 96.2 effective field goal percentage in a 32-point game isn't bad at all. Paul is having a strange year shooting the ball, making 57.1 percent of his mid-range shots and only 46.7 percent at the rim. Additionally, he's also dribbling before his shots a lot, putting the ball on the floor at least seven times on 32.0 percent of his shots in his previous seven games. Regardless, he's the best pure point guard in the NBA right now.
Nov 16 - 3:38 AM

Chris Paul narrowly missed a triple-double with 12 points on 6-of-13 shooting (no threes) with 10 rebounds, nine assists and one steal in Monday's loss to the Spurs.

Paul would surely trade in his popcorn numbers for some extra intensity out of his team, but they're struggling right now and Doc Rivers is going to lose more than his voice. Blake Griffin added 23 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and a steal in the loss.
Nov 11 - 1:55 AM

Chris Paul handed out 11 assists without a turnover against the Blazers on Saturday, adding 22 points, four rebounds, one steal and one block.

He has an absolutely ridiculous assist:turnover ratio of 63:5 on the season. Paul is in complete control of his offense and the Clippers getting off to a somewhat slow start has nothing to do with him. He's one of the best point guards we've seen in a long time.
Nov 8 - 8:35 PM

Chris Paul said he felt fine after taking a Steph Curry elbow to his jaw during Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.

Paul took an elbow to the face in the third quarter of Wednesday's loss and picked up a technical foul afterwards for complaining to the referees. Curry later apologized to Paul, but it doesn't sound like that will quell the bad blood between the two teams. "It doesn't make my jaw feel any better," Paul said of the apology. Paul only hit 6-of-15 shots for 15 points in the loss, but the fact that he was still able to provide fantasy owners with 12 assists in an off game shows why he's one of the top fantasy point guards in the game.
Nov 6 - 12:09 PM

Chris Paul hit 6-of-15 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, 12 assists and four steals in Wednesday's ugly loss to the Warriors.

CP3 still came through with a decent game against Steph Curry and company, but owners were looking for more. The good news is that his foot problem is quickly becoming a distant memory, and Paul should continue to play well for the Clippers, who are now 3-2 after losing badly to the undefeated Dubs.
Nov 6 - 1:53 AM

Chris Paul triple-doubled with 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting (including a three), 10 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and one block in Monday's win over the Jazz.

Paul had a foot/ankle issue on Sunday when Rudy Gay stepped on his foot and he had to leave a portion of the game. He'd be the first to admit that he and his teammates aren't playing well despite their 3-1 record, but fantasy owners will be thrilled with this sort of output on a 'bad' night.
Nov 4 - 1:57 AM

Chris Paul will start against the Jazz on Monday.

He had a foot issue over the weekend, but we still able to play 37 minutes on Sunday. Paul has 28:1 assist:turnover ratio and should have a lot of success against Trey Burke.
Nov 3 - 9:02 PM

Chris Paul was his usual effective self vs. the Kings on Sunday, scoring 16 points to go with 11 assists, four steals, five rebounds, two 3-pointers, one block, and zero turnovers.

Paul has 28 assists through the first three games of the season, and has only turned the ball over once; which is pretty amazing. He briefly went to the locker room after the first quarter to deal with a left foot sprain, but he ended up playing 37 minutes, so that's obviously not going to be an issue moving forward. Paul's one of the best point guards in the league, and if he can remain healthy this season, he has a shot at finishing with top-5 value on the year.
Nov 2 - 6:57 PM

Chris Paul suffered a left foot sprain during Sunday's game vs. the Kings, but he is expected to return.

Paul was seen going to the locker room at the end of the first quarter, but it seems like everything is fine. He's been cleared to return to the game, so this will likely be a non-issue moving forward.
Nov 2 - 4:19 PM

Chris Paul double-doubled in a win against the Lakers on Friday, by scoring 12 points on 2-of-9 shooting while adding 10 assists, two rebounds, two steals, and one 3-pointer.

Yes the shooting was bad tonight, but he shouldn't have any trouble finding his rhythm soon. The Clippers still look a little sloppy on offense and it should be just a matter of time before Paul has this team firing on all cylinders.
Nov 1 - 9:16 AM

Chris Paul scored 22 points during a close 93-90 win over the Thunder, scoring 22 points with four rebounds, seven assists, three steals, one block, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

The Clippers did not look good on offense at all. They led the NBA in offensive efficiency rating, but put up a 39/23/72 percent shooting line from the field, beyond the arc and at the line, respectively. As for Paul, he's probably going to be the best point guard in fantasy hoops as long as he's on the court.
Oct 31 - 2:58 AM

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.
