Chris Paul

  1. Chris Paul told Byron Scott to let Kyrie Irving guard him

    Nov 7, 2012, 10:10 AM EST

    Dion Waiters, Anderson Varejao,  Chris Paul

    Kyrie Irving played a fantastic game to lead the Cavaliers to a win over the Clippers Monday — 24 points, 10 assists and he had the dagger three at the end (when for some reason DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe both backed off him and gave him a clean look with the game on the…

  2. Video: Chris Paul has some sick handles (in case you forgot)

    Nov 6, 2012, 11:48 AM EST

    Dion Waiters, Anderson Varejao,  Chris Paul

    Chris Paul got outplayed by Kyrie Irving on Monday night. Which really says less about CP3, who was trying to set up teammates, than it does about how good Irving is (and he has less guys around him one would want to set up). But lest you think CP3 has lost anything, enjoy the video…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs, Knicks remain undefeated

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:42 AM EST

    Rasheed Wallace, Tyson Chandler

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while you were finding out where Superman’s home planet Krypton actually was…. Spurs 101, Pacers 79: Don’t look now, but the Spurs are defending again this year. Which is how they crushed the Pacers. We broke it down.…

  4. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EST

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  5. Chris Paul doesn’t buy Jamal Crawford doesn’t practice dribbling

    Nov 3, 2012, 2:30 PM EST

    Jamal Crawford

    At one point in the second quarter of the Clippers win over the Lakers Friday night — on what was supposed to be the Lakers home court — Jamal Crawford crossed over a Lakers defender to get an open look on the left wing, a move so sweet there was an audible gasp from the…

  6. Lakers identity crisis runs into confident Clippers, result is 0-3 Lakers

    Nov 3, 2012, 3:16 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — The Clippers know who they are. They are Chris Paul’s team, Lob City, a lot of pick-and-roll, Jamal Crawford breaking guys ankles, Blake Griffin attacking the rim The Lakers are… still trying to figure it out. Through three games the Lakers have tried on more personalities than an 13-year-old girl. And none…

  7. Steve Nash will sit out for Lakers. Welcome to the Steve Blake era.

    Nov 2, 2012, 10:06 PM EST

    Lakers Steve Nash smiles as he plays in the Lakers season opening game against  Dallas

    As we pretty much all expected, Steve Nash will not suit up for the Lakers Friday night against the Clippers, the contusion on his shin still limiting movement too much, Lakers coach Mike Brown confirmed before the game on Friday. Steve Blake will start, and Brown said both Chris Duhon and Darius Morris could see…

  8. Kobe Bryant: “’Everybody shut up. Let us work.”

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:00 AM EST

    Lakers starters chat during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Hey, Charles Barkley and Shaq. Hey, Lakers haters who have savored the past week. Hey Lakers fans. Yes you. The ones saying the it’s all Mike Brown’s fault the Lakers are 0-2. The ones blaming the Princeton offense for everything except Hurricane Sandy. All of you. Kobe Bryant has two words for you: Shut up.…

  9. Why didn’t Dwight Howard and Chris Paul end up playing together?

    Nov 1, 2012, 11:00 PM EST

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    Today’s NBA is nothing like the eras of the league that have long since passed. Picture Michael Jordan recruiting Isiah Thomas to join the Bulls, or Larry Bird trying to coerce Magic Johnson into leaving L.A. for the bright lights cold weather and rickety conditions of the ancient Boston Garden. Exactly — it just wasn’t…

  10. Eric Gordon says he had recovery setback, there is no timetable for return

    Nov 1, 2012, 3:10 PM EST

    Eric Gordon

    It just feels like there is a missing puzzle pieces in New Orleans. Wednesday, both Hornets GM Dell Demps and coach Monte Williams — two player-friendly guys — basically suggested Hornets doctors say there is nothing wrong with Eric Gordon’s surgically-repaired knee. But he says there is. Then Thursday Gordon said things were pretty bad,…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Lakers defense sucks, too

    Nov 1, 2012, 4:13 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Jodie Meeks

    Our nightly recap of every gamegaround the NBA. It’s what you missed while buying dive bar T-shirts…. Trail Blazers 116, Lakers 106: In the season opener, Dallas scored at a 108.7 points per 100 possessions pace on the Lakers (for comparison, only five teams in the NBA averaged giving up more points per 100 last…

  12. Kyrie Irving would like to remind you he is very good. And Cavaliers win.

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:47 AM EST

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    You know why the Cleveland and Washington were on the NBA opening night schedule along with marquee teams like the Lakers, Heat and Celtics? Because the NBA likes to showcase its future, and here were John Wall and Kyrie Irving to entertain you… except John Wall is out for a while with a cracked patella.…

  13. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EST

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  14. Four teams that could head off a Lakers vs. Heat NBA final

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:42 PM EST

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    It’s the consensus of prognosticators (and me as well) — the NBA finals will be the Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James. You can already sense David Stern drooling like a Pavlovian dog thinking about the television ratings. What teams could destroy David Stern’s dream? There are four. While we…

  15. Video: Daryl Morey talks Rockets’ trade for James Harden

    Oct 28, 2012, 5:31 PM EST

    daryl-morey-rockets

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey has been on a quest for an elite player for more than a year — Pau Gasol (part of the Chris Paul trade David Stern blew up), Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony — and he thinks he finally has one in James Harden. Morey was on Comcast SportsNet Houston to talk about…

  16. With Silver, NBA gets same business with softer face

    Oct 26, 2012, 11:50 AM EST

    NBA Commissioner David Stern Announces Retirement

    Things are not going to change much. There will come a time, just a few years into his tenure as commissioner, when Adam Silver will walk out on the stage at the NBA Draft and be instantly booed by fans. Just as David Stern has been for years. A lot of things will stay the…

  17. NBA season preview: New Orleans Hornets

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:40 AM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Houston Rockets

    Last Season: The player the franchise had built itself around, Chris Paul, decided he wanted out before last season began. He did so in a far less-aggravating way than his superstar counterparts (we’re looking at you, Mr. Anthony and Mr. Howard), but he did it just the same. Since the key piece the Hornets received in…

  18. Video: Another day, another CP3 to Blake Griffin ally-oop

    Oct 26, 2012, 8:44 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul puts his arm around teammate Griffin during NBA basketball game against the Memphis Grizzlies in Los Angeles

    They make it look routine. There are challengers to the “most entertaining team in the NBA” crown that for my money the Clippers still have. OKC is always good, Denver is going to be one of those teams this year but the Clippers are just fun. They have Chris Paul throwing lobs to Blake Griffin.…

  19. NBA Season Preview: Houston Rockets

    Oct 25, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Kevin McHale, Jeremy Lin

    Last Season: Riding a deep roster and the creativity of a coaching staff and front office to cover up their weaknesses with in-season trades, the Rockets were in the playoff hunt into the season’s final days only to fall short and finish 9th in the West. They battled injury, illness, and the transition to new…

  20. Video: Bledsoe no-look to DeAndre Jordan ally-oop slam

    Oct 25, 2012, 2:12 AM EST

    DeAndre Jordan

    You can take Chris Paul and Blake Griffin out of the picture, and the Clippers still have the best highlights in the land. This was Eric Bledsoe with the no-look ally-oop pass to DeAndre Jordan (who has had some impressive nights this preseason). And there you have the dunk of the night. Other teams will…

  21. Seven players who need to answer doubters, have big years

    Oct 24, 2012, 6:37 PM EST

    John Wall

    It’s time gentlemen. Step up or be swept to the side. There are a lot of players in the NBA who need to answer questions we have about them, but maybe none more than the seven below. These are players who either need to show how good they are to get paid next summer; or…

  22. GM Survey: Where Darko Milicic is underrated and Carmelo Anthony is MVP

    Oct 22, 2012, 5:30 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Everyone has that buddy that acts perfectly logical and sane, but forces you to reevaluate your friendship after he blurts out something like, “Carlos Boozer is going to win MVP this year!” Well, good news everyone: NBA General Managers are just like you, me, and your friend you can no longer take seriously. Let’s take…

  23. The case for why Chris Paul is staying with the Clippers

    Oct 21, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is technically back in that same spot so many stars have been in over the past few years which has resulted in a transition of teams. He’s a free agent at the end of this season with his contract expiring. He would have been a free agent this summer but as part of…

  24. Jamal Crawford added working on his game to his summer to do list

    Oct 19, 2012, 1:37 PM EST

    Jamal Crawford drive

    NBA players are in the top one percent of the top one percent of basketball players. You simply won’t find a more talented group of ballers on the planet than the guys who suit up in the association. Talent alone, though, normally doesn’t get a player to the top of their profession. It takes more…

  25. Chauncey Billups targets November return to Clippers

    Oct 18, 2012, 11:41 AM EST

    Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups timetable for return just keeps moving up. He suffered a torn surgery left Achilles’ tendon — a tough injury to recover from at any age — but had the surgery and promised a comeback. His original optimistic timetable was December, but he has recovered to the point he is practicing with the team…
