Chris Paul scored 22 points with six 3-pointers, six assists, two steals, one block and one turnover in just 29 minutes of action on Tuesday, playing in his 82nd game of the season.
CP3 ramped up his scoring to a season-best 22.6 points per game in March, followed by 20.3 points in April, and he's showing no signs of fatigue despite playing 82 games for the first time in his NBA career. It's worth mentioning that Paul's six 3-pointers tonight were a career-high and they came against a Suns' defense which ranks No. 8 in fewest 3-pointers against. Apr 15 - 1:31 AM

Chris Paul scored 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, nine assists and two steals in the Clippers' 110-103 win over the Nuggets on Monday.

Paul is working on an 82-game season and the Clippers can finish with either the two, three or five-seeds. They'll bring out their A-game against the Suns on Tuesday and watch the scoreboard both that night and on Wednesday as the rest of the West playoff teams finish their final games. Blake Griffin added 22 points, nine boards, eight assists, two blocks and an 8-of-9 mark from the line, DeAndre Jordan went for 20 and 21 with one steal and four blocks, and J.J. Redick scored 20 points with three treys in the win.
Apr 14 - 5:30 AM

Chris Paul handled his business against the Grizzlies during a 94-86 win on Saturday, scoring 15 points with five boards, 14 assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

This game probably seals his crown for dimes per game and he's certainly going to win the total dime distinction. Thanks to staying healthy, CP3 has 52 more assists than second place (John Wall). If you drafted him, you probably stole him due to all the knee injuries he had leading up to this season.
Apr 12 - 1:19 AM

Chris Paul controlled Sunday's game despite scoring only seven points on 3-of-7 shooting -- he added four boards, 15 assists and two steals while leading his team to a 28-point drubbing of the Lakers.

CP3 also had the play of the game when he dribbled through Carlos Boozer's legs on a fastbreak attempt, a viral-video moment you can watch via the link below. His fantasy owners should be pleased that the Clippers and Spurs have the same record at 51-26, as we're unlikely to see CP3 rested as a precaution this week.

Chris Paul scored 23 points with nine assists in a win over the Nuggets on Saturday, adding five boards, two steals and four 3-pointers.

He shot 6-of-10 from the field including a perfect 4-of-4 from beyond the arc, and he only turned the ball over one time in 32 minutes. To be fair, Paul was matched up with Erick Green due to injuries to Ty Lawson and Jameer Nelson, but he still deserves a lot of credit for his stellar performance. Paul should be ready to feast again in a favorable matchup with the Lakers on Sunday.
Apr 5 - 12:11 AM

Chris Paul had a season-high 41 points, five rebounds, 17 assists, four steals and five 3-pointers on 13-of-21 shooting, and also hit 10-of-10 free throws in Wednesday's tough win over the Blazers, which is a fight for home court advantage in the playoffs.

CP3 tied his season high in assists and got fired up after Chris Kaman shoved him from the blindside, and the Blazers probably wish they had a do-over on that play, as they were up at the time. Blake Griffin added 24 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers, and DeAndre Jordan added 13 points, 13 boards, a steal and a block in the win. As long as these guys are in the lineup for the Clippers, they are must-starts in fantasy, obviously. The Blazers, who are on the verge of clinching the Northwest Division, hold just a one-game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed in the West.
Apr 2 - 1:47 AM

Chris Paul scored 27 points in a losing effort vs. the Warriors in L.A on Tuesday, finishing with one 3-pointer, two rebounds, nine assists and one steal.

CP3 has been a top-5 fantasy value by virtually any metric this season -- 8-cat or 9-cat, per-game or cumulative. He rivals Kawhi Leonard as one of the game's deadliest mid-range shooters and his 10.3 ppg off pull-up jumpers are tops in the NBA, far ahead of Mo Williams (8.9), Stephen Curry (8.6) and Russell Westbrook (8.4). He also leads the NBA in assist-to-turnover ratio (4.1) and will be a fixture on plenty of championship-winning fantasy teams this season.

Chris Paul was magnificent against the 76ers during a 119-98 win on Friday with 25 points, three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers on 9-of-15 from the field in just 30 minutes.

It was all just too easy for CP3 with 19 points coming in the first half. Paul's offensive game is clicking at the right time, averaging 23.8 points, 4.4 boards, 12.0 dimes, 2.2 steals and 1.8 treys on 55.6 percent from the field and 88.9 percent from the line in his last five. If CP3 keeps this up, he'll likely be on a lot of fantasy championship teams.
Mar 27 - 11:30 PM

Chris Paul led the Clippers to a 107-100 win vs. the Pelicans on Sunday, scoring 23 points with seven rebounds, 11 assists and four steals.

He did his damage in 38 minutes and he's averaging a stellar 22.3 points, 11.3 assists and 1.6 steals since the All-Star break. The No. 5 seed Clippers are in the thick of the playoff race with 2.5 games separating the No. 7 and No. 3 seeds, so CP3's owners shouldn't have to worry about precautionary DNPs this week.
Mar 22 - 6:22 PM

Chris Paul scored 30 points on 12-of-21 shooting (1-of-3 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with six rebounds, 15 assists and one steal in the Clippers' 113-99 win over the Wizards on Friday.

Paul is a forgotten elite fantasy play this season returning top 3-4 value. He wasn't the only one to get off tonight, as J.J. Redick scored 26 points with four treys, Blake Griffin scored 22 points with a full line, and DeAndre Jordan went for 10 and 23 with two steals and three blocks in the win.
Mar 21 - 3:10 AM

Chris Paul had 30 points, 11 assists, a steal and four 3-pointers on 13-of-20 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Kings.

DeAndre Jordan had just six points, but added 15 rebounds, a steal and a block, and these two guys continue to put up fun fantasy stats for their owners, night after night.
Mar 19 - 1:47 AM

Chris Paul struggled from the field during Sunday's loss to the Rockets, scoring 23 points on 7-of-21 shooting (8-of-8 from the line), adding five assists, two steals, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, two steals and three turnovers through 37 minutes of action.

Paul, like many point guards around the league, found it difficult to score effectively against Patrick Beverley of the Rockets. He'll get a better matchup against Charlotte on Tuesday, so look for him to bounce-back during that one. Although, with Blake Griffin back in the lineup and co-running the offense, owners of CP3 can expect to see a minor dip in production.
Mar 15 - 7:08 PM

Chris Paul not only hit 11-of-19 shots and five 3-pointers to go along with four rebounds, nine assists and two steals, but also played incredible defense on Russell Westbrook as the Clippers got an easy win against the Thunder on Wednesday.

It's quite obvious Paul, who had a sore knee coming in, was fired up about going head-to-head against Westbrook and he showed the kid a few things tonight, on both ends of the floor. When guarded by Paul, Westbrook hit just 2-of-8 shots for seven points and seven turnovers. Paul tweaked his left ankle during the game, but Doc Rivers said after the game he doesn't think it's anything serious. Watch for updates on Paul's ankle and knee, but at this point, it would be surprising if he misses time.
Mar 12 - 1:00 AM

Chris Paul (knee) will start vs. Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Wednesday.

In what will arguably be the most exciting matchup of the night, Paul's owners can comfortably deploy him like they normally would. Paul is dealing with a bruised kneecap, and even though it doesn't look like he will be in danger of missing any time down the stretch, we will continue to monitor his status very closely in the coming days. Those of you who speculatively picked up Austin Rivers and Nate Robinson should probably look elsewhere.
Mar 11 - 12:28 PM

Chris Paul (bruised kneecap) is expected to start vs. the Thunder on Wednesday, but he's officially listed as a game-time decision.

CP3 didn't look right during Monday's game and he faces a brutal matchup with Russell Westbrook, so owners should check for updates after L.A.'s shootaround. Paul hasn't missed a game all season and owners can anticipate having him available, but if he's forced to sit out the Clips will rely on Austin Rivers, J.J. Redick and maybe Hedo Turkoglu for ball-handling.
