Chris Paul tied his season high with 35 points vs. the Celtics on Wednesday, adding 13 assists, five rebounds, three steals and one block in an OT loss in Boston.
The Clippers lost for only the third time in their past 15 road games, an incredible feat given the injuries they've endured. CP3 appeared to have a minor hand injury but he played through it and should have plenty of time to recuperate during the much-needed All-Star break -- it obviously didn't affect him tonight, as he drained 13-of-21 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs with three triples.

Chris Paul scored 22 points on 8-of-23 shooting Sunday, to go with seven assists, two rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and just one turnover in 34 minutes.

Paul couldn't get anything to drop to start the game, going 0-of-9 from the field, but in typical CP3 fashion he connected on eight of his final 14 shot attempts to close out the win. He's going to be a top-3 option moving forward.

Chris Paul did his best to avoid a fine for post-game comments on a late-game technical foul in Wednesday's loss to the Timberwolves.

Paul received a late-game technical foul from referee Lauren Holtkamp, but was measured in explaining the call. "It's crazy," Paul said. "I guess it was for what I said." Asked what he said, Paul said, "Nothing. I said nothing." Paul has a history with Holtkamp, so was smart to avoid elaborating on his feelings. Paul scored 22 points with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and four treys in the loss and is a must-start option as long as he's healthy.

Chris Paul scored 22 points with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Wolves during a 108-102 loss on Wednesday.

He picked up a late technical foul, which most will call controversial. Referee Lauren Holtkamp T'd up Paul and he was asked about his history with Holtkamp after the game. "They done got my money already," Paul said. "I'm cool. My kids in private school." Paul was fined $25K last year for saying a tech from Holtkamp was "terrible" and that being an NBA ref "might not be for her."

Chris Paul scored 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting during Sunday's easy win over the Bulls, adding seven assists, one rebound, one 3-pointer, two steals and one turnover through 32 minutes of work.

Chris Paul’s usage rate has jumped to 30.0 through the month of January and his assist percentage is up to 55.8. He’s been a top-3 option during that span owning averages of 21.1 points, 10.4 assists, 4.4 rebounds, 2.2 three-pointers, 2.3 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.9 turnovers per game, and that trend will continue over the next couple months with Blake Griffin (hand) sidelined.
Jan 31 - 6:31 PM

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said that Chris Paul will "probably" get an occasional game off before Blake Griffin (hand) returns.

"He won't have to ask," Rivers said. "It will be, 'You have to sit one.'" CP3 had a couple of nagging injuries at the start of the season, but he has been healthy for the most part since then. He is averaging 32.4 minutes per game, but Rivers may want to monitor his workload because he will have to take on a lot more responsibility with Griffin likely out for a couple of months. CP3's owners shouldn't be too concerned and he is going to be a stud the rest of the way.
Jan 31 - 1:27 PM

Chris Paul scored 27 points on 11-of-18 shooting during Friday's easy win over the Lakers, to go with seven assists, three 3-pointers, one rebound, two steals and just two turnovers in 31 minutes.

With Blake Griffin (hand) out until late-March, and possibly longer, Chris Paul is going to be a monster for the Clippers over the next couple months. He’s been a top-5 guy over the past month with averages of 19.9 points, 11.1 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 2.3 steals, 2.1 three-pointers and 3.2 turnovers per game on 44.9 percent shooting from the field and 82.6 percent from the line. He’s a stud.
Jan 30 - 1:34 AM

Chris Paul made 5-of-15 from the field for 11 points with four rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and two turnovers in 33 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

It wasn't a great game from CP3, but his owners shouldn't be worried at all. The loss of Blake Griffin (hand) in the past two seasons has led to a higher usage rate, higher efficiency and more dimes. He'll be close to a lock for top-five value as long as he's healthy.
Jan 27 - 11:47 PM

Chris Paul hit 11-of-21 shots and four 3-pointers for 26 points, six rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Pacers.

CP3 should have the ball in his hands a ton the rest of the way, as Blake Griffin could be out until April with a broken hand. Hopefully his body is ready to deal with the heavy workload coming his way.
Jan 26 - 10:20 PM

Chris Paul's double-double wasn't enough to defeat the Raptors on Sunday, as he scored 23 points with 11 assists, three 3-pointers, four rebounds, two steals and one block in a tough road loss.

CP3 has a sterling assist-to-turnover ratio of 3.5, trailing only Ricky Rubio, Jose Calderon and league-leader Mike Conley. He's been phenomenal in January, ranking second for overall value in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. Blake Griffin's return will put a dent in CP3's shot volume and scoring, but not enough to substantially dampen his fantasy outlook.
Jan 24 - 8:58 PM

Chris Paul scored 16 points during an easy 116-88 win over the Knicks on Friday with six rebounds, 13 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He started really slow with just one field goal in the first half, but he turned it up a notch in the second half to turn this into a blowout. Paul was also hit in the mouth by Robin Lopez and was bleeding. "I don’t think I hate anything more than getting my lip busted," Paul said. "I can’t eat for like a week, two weeks." CP3 is dominating in fantasy.
Jan 23 - 12:16 AM

Chris Paul didn't get help on Thursday during a 115-102 loss to the Cavs, scoring 30 points with three rebounds, nine assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

He made 11-of-19 from the field and all seven free throws for a wonderful fantasy line. To nobody's surprise CP3 was already having a stat-stuffing January with averages of 20.6 points, 5.3 boards, 11.7 dimes, 2.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.4 treys in his previous games this month. Only Stephen Curry has more standard-league value in January.
Jan 21 - 11:34 PM

Chris Paul filled up the stat sheet on Monday against the Rockets with 28 points, six rebounds, 12 assists, six steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 43 minutes.

The Clippers offense has been outstanding since Blake Griffin (quad) has been out, posting a higher offensive rating than the Warriors since Dec. 26. Paul put up a whopping 119.3 offensive rating in those 11 games, averaging 19.5 points, 4.9 boards, 11.2 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.7 treys. CP3 is the No. 8 player on the season with an upward trend.
Jan 19 - 2:10 AM

Chris Paul scored 15 points with seven assists in Saturday's 109-103 loss to the Kings.

CP3 got into some early foul trouble with three fouls in the first half, so he only played 27 minutes in this one. He shot 4-of-11 from the field, 3-of-5 from beyond the arc and hit all four free throws, adding four boards and one steal. The Clippers' 10-game winning streak was snapped with the loss, but they will look to get back on track vs. the Rockets on Monday.
Jan 17 - 1:03 AM

Chris Paul scored 15 points during a 104-90 win over the Heat on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, 12 assists, one block, four steals and two 3-pointers.

The Clippers are on an NBA-best 10-game winning streak right now, which is even more impressive considering Blake Griffin (quad) did not play in nine of those games. Paul is on cruise control over his last five, averaging 20.2 points, 5.4 boards, 12.6 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.8 treys. CP3 has been a top-five player in standard leagues over the past four weeks.
