Chris Paul and Co. laid an egg in the Clippers' Game 3 loss to the Spurs, with Paul hitting just 3-of-11 shots for seven points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and six turnovers.

Paul was hardly the worst offender with Jamal Crawford hitting just 1-of-11 shots in 23 minutes. J.J. Redick went 2-of-7 for seven points and not much else, and Blake Griffin was 6-of-15 from the field for 14 points, 10 boards, five assists and a block. This was your prototypical goose egg and they'll look to get back on track in Sunday's Game 4.

Chris Paul was terrific again during a tough 111-107 Game 2 loss on Wednesday, scoring 21 points with eight boards, seven assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He continues to be remarkably efficient in this series. In the two games combined, Paul made 20-of-30 from the field with six 3-pointers to give him a 76.7 effective field goal percentage. As for the non-scoring stuff, the second guessers are going to be out in force because of Blake Griffin having some bad turnovers late, especially considering how CP3's assist:turnover ratio is off the charts. The Clippers will have to win one in San Antonio now.

DeAndre Jordan made 7-of-10 from the field and 6-of-17 from the line for 20 points against the Spurs on Wednesday with 15 boards and three blocks in 44 minutes.

The Hack-A-Jordan was on tonight and it obviously worked for the Spurs. Jordan was struggling from the line so much that coach Doc Rivers had to take him out for a little while. Expect the Spurs to continue hacking Jordan throughout the series. Besides that, his defense has been great and he had a terrific block on Tim Duncan down the stretch, too.
Apr 23 - 1:53 AM

Matt Barnes made 1-of-10 from the field for four points against the Spurs on Wednesday with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

His defense was just as bad as his offense tonight. Simply put, Barnes will want to forget this game ASAP.
Apr 23 - 1:50 AM

Jamal Crawford made 4-of-13 from the field for 11 points in 21 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday with four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

After a big Game 1, Crawford was on the other end of the spectrum tonight. He didn't play down the stretch with the Clippers needing some extra size at small forward and J.J. Redick having a slightly better game. He'll likely be better in Game 3 and has actually shot the ball better on the road than at home this season. Redick scored 16 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.
Apr 23 - 1:46 AM

Blake Griffin put up a triple-double against the Spurs in a Game 2 loss on Wednesday, scoring 29 points with 12 boards, 11 assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers in 47 minutes.

He had a really bad turnover with 11 seconds left in regulation, which led to Patty Mills tying the game with eight seconds left. Griffin has been posting some massive numbers, but the costly turnover will be the story here. Basically all of his stats are up from the regular season and he's poised for another monster outing in Game 3 on Friday.
Apr 23 - 1:43 AM

Jordan Hamilton (concussion) will not play on Wednesday after suffering a concussion in practice.

He is out of the rotation and would only play in garbage time. Hopefully, everything is fine with Hamilton as an emergency guy.
Apr 22 - 9:30 PM

Glen Davis scored three points in 12 minutes and Austin Rivers added two points in 13 minutes during a lackluster bench effort vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

Jamal Crawford was terrific, saving L.A.'s second unit with 17 points, but at some point Davis, Rivers, Spencer Hawes and Hedo Turkoglu will need to step up. The Clippers had one of the NBA's least-efficient bench units this season, along with the Magic, Cavaliers and Heat, and that was glaringly obvious to start the second quarter when L.A.'s reserves let a 12-point lead dwindle to a two-point lead in the course of two minutes.
Apr 20 - 2:23 AM

Blake Griffin finished Sunday's win vs. the Spurs with 26 points (9-of-20 FGs, 8-of-10 FTs), 12 rebounds, six assists, three steals, three blocks, one turnover and a pair of highlight-reel dunks in 43 minutes.

The Clippers won by 15 points but this was as intense a Game 1 as we've seen this year, starting a stand-out series on an impressive note. NBA fans on the East Coast should consider a late-night cappuccino before L.A. and San Antonio lock horns in Game 2 on Wednesday.

Jamal Crawford scorched the Spurs on Sunday for 17 points with three 3-pointers, shooting 7-of-10 overall in 23 minutes off the Clippers' bench.

The former sixth-man of the year had been shooting 27.8 percent since returning from a calf injury that caused him to miss 17 games. Doc Rivers had "zero" concern about his veteran before the game and that was borne out tonight as Crawford dipped into his sampler-pack of pull-up jumpers and dribble-drives. As coach Rivers said, "Jamal will be fine" for Wednesday's Game 2.
Apr 20 - 2:13 AM

Chris Paul was unguardable down the stretch of Sunday's Game 1 win vs. the Spurs, finishing with a game-high 32 points on 13-of-20 shooting with three 3-pointers, seven boards, six assists and two steals.

CP3 started the postseason with a bang. He led the NBA with 10.2 assists per game this season, played 82 games for the first time in his 10-year career, and looks ready to step up offensively vs. the Spurs' elite defense. Paul knocked down a career-high 139 three-pointers this season and was 3-of-5 beyond the arc on Sunday, abusing every defender the Spurs threw his way.
Apr 20 - 2:09 AM

DeAndre Jordan attempted 12 free throws vs. the Spurs on Sunday, making five of them to finish with nine points, 14 rebounds and four blocks in 38 minutes.

Gregg Popovich isn't shy about intentionally fouling Jordan -- he did it in February and Jordan finished just 10-of-28 at the line. The horrendous FT shooting is juxtaposed with his historically-excellent 71.0 percent field goal average this season, which ranks No. 2 all-time in the NBA behind only Wilt Chamberlain. He's a matchup problem for the Spurs, to say the least.
Apr 20 - 2:03 AM

DeAndre Jordan expects to spend plenty of time at the free throw line against the Spurs, but said that he wasn't worried about it.

"It’s happened all season, and I feel like a lot of the games that they’ve done it we’ve won," Jordan said in regards to teams intentionally putting him at the foul line. "I’m not really worried about it. When it does happen, which I know it will, I’ll just go to the line and shoot the basketball. It’s not something that I’m dreading, but I’m prepared for it. I’m ready." Despite shooting just 39.7 percent from the line this season, the Clippers are 9-0 when he shoots at least 14 free throws.
Apr 19 - 11:19 AM

Jamal Crawford came off L.A.'s bench for 10 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, four assists and three steals in 29 minutes during Tuesday's road victory.

Crawford passed Pete Maravich on the NBA's all-time scoring list tonight, though in fairness Pistol Pete played 10 seasons while Crawford is in his 15th season. The Clippers' regular season is over and they're currently the No. 2 seed in the West, but they could fall depending upon the results of Wednesday's games. No matter what happens, L.A. has to feel confident heading into the postseason without any players on the injury report.
Apr 15 - 1:37 AM

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.
