Chris Paul did it all during Sunday's tough Game 4 defeat, posting 27 points, 12 assists, nine rebound, one steal, one 3-pointer and just two turnovers in 38 minutes.
The Clippers need CP3 to be extra aggressive with Blake Griffin (toe) done for the postseason, and he obliged tonight with 10-of-21 FGs and 6-of-8 FTs. He was particularly effective in pick-and-roll sets, for which Utah had few answers, and Jazz coach Quin Snyder is sure to throw new wrinkles at him in Game 5. Paul has seen it all, of course, so we're anticipating another big game from the future Hall-of-Famer on Tuesday. Apr 24 - 12:11 AM

Chris Paul carried the Clippers to a comeback 111-106 win in Utah on Friday, scoring 34 points with seven rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

No Blake Griffin in the second half, no problem. The Clippers overcame a 14-point deficit for their largest road comeback since 2012, and CP3's 24 points in the second half were a big reason why -- also had seven rebounds in the second half. Even if BG has to miss time, the Clippers may be OK with CP3 at the helm and getting more shots. He also passed Wilt Chamberlain for 30th on the all-time playoffs assists list. The Clippers will take their 2-1 lead to Utah again for Sunday's Game 4.
Apr 22 - 1:16 AM

Chris Paul hit 9-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, two rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, a block and five turnovers in Tuesday's 99-91 Game 2 win against the Jazz.

As well as CP3, DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin all played, it's interesting that the Clippers didn't win by more points. It's also interesting that this series is tied 1-1 and heading to Utah for the next two games, starting on Friday night. Paul was great tonight, despite the TOs, and we get the feeling he's simply going to will the Clippers to win this series. But if that's going to happen the Clippers will likely need to take either Game 3 or 4 in Utah. Paul is now tied with LeBron James for the second most playoff games with at least 20 points, 10 dimes and three steals with 10 of them.
Apr 19 - 1:35 AM

Chris Paul scored 25 points during a 97-95 Game 1 loss to the Jazz on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

What a tough loss at home and this one isn't on Paul. CP3 kept the Clippers in this game with 10 consecutive Clippers points, but he just didn't get much help from the other stars. His 10 assists in the first half were the most he's handed out in any postseason half of his career, but he turned into a scorer late. Paul is coming in red hot over his previous seven, averaging 23.1 points, 4.7 boards, 10.3 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.9 treys. He's going to be asked to do a ton against the Jazz, so it's fair to expect even bigger games than this one especially if Rudy Gobert (knee) is out.
Apr 16 - 1:16 AM

Chris Paul scored 18 points during a 115-95 win over the Kings on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, nine assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

This win locked up the No. 4 seed to give the Clippers homecourt advantage against the Jazz. As most point guards do, CP3 didn't fare well against the Jazz, averaging 18.7 points, 4.0 boards, 7.0 assists and 2.3 turnovers. Paul could not finish the playoffs last year due to injury, so he'll have a little extra edge this time around. Expect him to score in the mid-20s with plenty of other stats to go with it.
Apr 13 - 1:11 AM

Chris Paul finished with 19 points, nine assists, five rebounds and four steals over 29 minutes in Monday's 125-96 blowout victory over the Rockets.

CP3 will play in Wednesday's regular-season finale, but fantasy owners should be scoreboard watching. The Clips and Jazz are tied for the 4-seed heading into Wednesday's game. Utah plays at 9pm ET in San Antonio, so Paul could potentially be rested in the second half if the Jazz lose earlier in the evening. That's good news for the likes of Jamal Crawford, especially as a speculative pick in DFS.
Apr 11 - 1:37 AM

Chris Paul scored 19 points (9-of-16 FGs) with eight rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and one triple in Saturday's 98-87 win over the Spurs.

With tonight's win, Doc Rivers ties Mike Dunleavy (215) for the most regular season coaching victories in Clippers franchise history, and the Clippers have won their season series vs. Spurs for the 4th time in team history. The Clippers have the same record as the Jazz with two games to go, but they hold the tiebreaker with a 3-1 advantage over them in the regular season. The No. 4 seed is theirs to lose.
Apr 9 - 12:06 AM

Chris Paul scored 29 points in Saturday's easy 115-104 win over the Lakers.

CP3 has scored 27+ points in three straight games and hasn't missed a contest since he returned from his thumb injury on Feb. 24. Most head-to-head fantasy leagues end this weekend, but if your league runs through the end of the regular season, the bad news for CP3's owners is that the Clippers only play twice next week. He finished 9-of-14 from the field and a perfect 10-of-10 from the line, adding 12 assists, four rebounds, one steal, one triple and six turnovers.
Apr 1 - 7:22 PM

Chris Paul had 29 points, five rebounds, 10 assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 10-fo-17 shooting in Thursday's win over the Suns.

Paul is fully healthy and rolling right now, and the Clippers are still fighting for playoff position. They're within striking distance of Utah and are still trying to hold off the Thunder for the No. 5 seed. Hopefully CP3 is good to go the rest of the way after missing half of January and most of February. In hindsight, that rest likely helped him and should have him ready for the postseason, as well as a push down the stretch for seeding position. The only problem is that the Clippers only have two games next week, meaning owners in weekly leagues may have some lineup decisions to make on Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin.
Mar 31 - 12:40 AM

Chris Paul scored 27 points during a 133-124 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, 13 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

The Clippers just smashed to match a season-high 133 points in this win. Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Paul and J.J. Redick reached the 20-point mark in the same game for the first time ever. CP3 appears to be out of his shooting slump and has now made 5-of-10 from deep in his last two, but there was never really much concern to begin with. Moving forward, the Clippers have a lot going on with playoff seeding, trailing the No. 4 seed Jazz by 1.5 games while holding a slim 1.0 lead over the Thunder. That should allow CP3 to log plenty of minutes in his team's final eight games.
Mar 30 - 2:01 AM

Chris Paul missed a potential game-winner vs. the Kings on Sunday, but he still finished with 17 points (4-of-9 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), nine assists, four rebounds, three 3-pointer, one steal and one block.

The Clippers came in half a game behind Utah for the No. 4 seed and homecourt advantage in the first round, but they blew a huge lead for an inexplicable loss at home today. The good news is that the tight race should encourage Doc Rivers to play his key veterans heavy minutes down the stretch, reducing the likelihood of DNP-CDs.
Mar 26 - 7:12 PM

Chris Paul made 5-of-18 from the field for 14 points during a 108-95 win over the Jazz on Saturday, adding three rebounds, five assists and one steal in 29 minutes.

He is in a rough shooting slump right now, making just 7-of-31 from deep in his last five. He has been solid as a midrange guy with 11-of-21 (52.4 percent) in that span, so it's really just about the long-range stuff. CP3 has struggled in particular on pull-up treys, so that's the missing piece right now. Despite his subpar play, Paul should still be an elite option.
Mar 25 - 7:27 PM

Chris Paul scored 15 points with six rebounds, six assists, three steals and one 3-pointer during a 97-95 loss to the Mavs on Thursday.

He did suffer what looked like a minor left arm injury, but Paul stayed in the game. After the game coach Doc Rivers said he liked the Clippers pushing the ball more, so maybe that'll help out CP3 with some better output in a more fantasy-friendly setting. He's a stud regardless of pace, of course.
Mar 23 - 11:43 PM

Chris Paul scored 27 points in a 133-109 blowout win over the Lakers on Tuesday.

CP3 didn't touch the floor in the fourth quarter for the second straight game due to blowouts. That might not be a bad thing for his fantasy owners, as the Clippers play three more times this week including a back-to-back set -- his low minutes early this week decreases the chances that he will be rested for a game. He finished 9-of-15 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and four triples, so his owners should be in great shape.
Mar 22 - 1:12 AM

Chris Paul double-doubled in a 114-105 win over the Knicks on Monday with 13 points and 13 assists in 28 minutes.

He had one of his worst games of the season on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers when he missed all eight of his shot attempts, so it was good to see CP3 start the week off right in this one. He finished 5-of-11 from the field and hit his only free throw, adding five rebounds, one steal and two triples. The Clippers play four more times this week and play the Lakers on the second night of a back-to-back set on Tuesday, but considering CP3 didn't play in the fourth quarter tonight, he should be relatively fresh.
