Chris Paul

  1. Video: Chris Paul with double behind his back crossover

    Dec 13, 2012, 10:17 AM EST

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is very, very good. The Clippers have won eight in a row and while CP3 doesn’t put up gaudy numbers that get him in the MVP conversation, he could. He chooses to worry about winning, about leading a team, about controlling the flow not just getting his own. But if you ever doubted…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pierce, Rondo lead Celtics to win

    Dec 13, 2012, 6:57 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching the Sandy relief concert and thinking the Who looked really old… Celtics 117, Mavericks 115 (2OT): This game was fun. It entertained. Oh, no it wasn’t pretty at all — Dallas had 27 turnovers — but it had its…

  3. Terrell Owens asked for a 10-day contract with Clippers

    Dec 12, 2012, 2:59 PM EST

    Premiere Of  Summit Entertainment's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" - Arrivals

    Terrell Owens can’t get an NFL contract right now (39-year-old receivers rarely do), so he’s looking at some other career options. Like the NBA. Maybe not officially, but he’s been around the Clippers and their workout facility. Blake Griffin was talking about him on the Dan Patrick Show (which you can see on the NBC Sports…

  4. Video: Clippers players talk about how they like Del Negro

    Dec 11, 2012, 7:12 PM EST

    Vinny Del Negro

    When I put together a list of coaches who could be on the hot seat I added Vinny Del Negro because it was obligatory. Fans saw him in Chicago, they heard the now-gone GM wanted him out the middle of last season and there is a national sense he can’t be the guy that coaches…

  5. Who is next NBA coach to be fired? Watch your back, Dwane Casey

    Dec 11, 2012, 4:13 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Clippers

    We’ve had one coach canned in the first quarter of the NBA season, and just as we expected it was Mike Brown from the Lakers. Which is why it is ironic to listen to Lakers brass and supporters say it’s too early to judge Mike D’Antoni because so many players are injured and they haven’t…

  6. Utah’s Favors officially diagnosed with plantar fasciitis

    Dec 4, 2012, 11:57 AM EST

    favors-fined

    If you want to know how much the Utah Jazz miss Derrick Favors, watch Chris Paul’s layup that gave the Clippers the lead for good on Monday night. Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are good players, but Favors provides athleticism on the defensive end they do not. And that the Jazz miss. And Utah may…

  7. Video: Chris Paul with the go-ahead driving layup vs. Jazz

    Dec 4, 2012, 8:01 AM EST

    Chris Paul

    This is about Chris Paul being Chris Paul and making the play that put the Clippers up for good and got them the win. But it’s also about the Jazz defense and how they miss Derrick Favors. Paul called DeAndre Jordan out and uses the screen well to pick-off DeMarre Carroll, but notice how Al…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Robin Lopez, Luke Babbitt key wins. It was that kind of night.

    Dec 4, 2012, 3:42 AM EST

    Brandon Jennings, Robin Lopez

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while trying to decide if you love or hate the new Air Jordan XX8…. Clippers 105, Jazz 104: Blake Griffin has his biggest scoring game of the year and the Clippers hand the Jazz their first home loss of the year.…

  9. Clippers 105, Jazz 104: Don’t make Chris Paul angry

    Dec 4, 2012, 2:13 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    The city of Los Angeles may not have Phil Jackson, but Chris Paul is doing his best to carry on some of the Zen Master’s most notable traits. Remember how Jackson would never call timeouts when his team was on the bad end of a big run? Timeouts were considered to be bailouts. Jackson wanted…

  10. Report: Billups to return to Clippers Wednesday, will start

    Nov 28, 2012, 3:21 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    Most players who have a major Achilles tendon injury at age 36 are done. It’s time to walk away from the game, spend more time with your family and your golf game. Not Chauncey Billups. Not Mr. Big Shot. The Clippers guard was going to leave the game on his own terms and worked hard…

  11. LeBron James back on top, King of NBA jersey sales again

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:06 AM EST

    Miami Heat's LeBron James gestures during a free throw in the second quarter of Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs against the Boston Celtics in Miami

    The deepest of LeBron James haters didn’t want to hear it but we were telling you this from the day after the decision — win a ring and the public perception of him would change. He’s got a ring, a gold medal from London, he was the NBA regular season and finals MVP — and…

  12. Are Griffin, CP3 comments the start of pressure on Vinny Del Negro?

    Nov 27, 2012, 1:46 PM EST

    Vinny Del Negro

    The Clippers are struggling — 1-4 in their last five. The why is that two of the reasons they showed so much improvement at the start of the season have regressed — their defense has been a total mess the past week plus and DeAndre Jordan has reverted to his old self. That and defenses…

  13. Three Stars of the Night: Super Sub Edition

    Nov 27, 2012, 1:44 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    The towel waver. The dancer. The 27-step handshake guy.  Every bench player has their role, but our Three Stars of the Night broke the mold and did a whole lot more than watch the starters. On a night where Brooklyn beat up on their big brother and the Hornets bested Chris Paul, anything seemed possible…so…

  14. Reminder: Jeremy Lin likely to be voted in as an All-Star starter

    Nov 25, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    Knicks Lin talks during a new conference before the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    This is not exactly breaking news, because (A) it hasn’t actually happened yet, and (B) it’s been widely speculated about since last season. But it is worth reminding you about nonetheless. When the NBA’s All-Star festivities descend on Houston in February, Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin is more than likely to appear in the mid-season…

  15. Blake Griffin’s incredible block on Deron Williams in super-slow motion (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2012, 6:01 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Brooklyn Nets

    We showed you Blake Griffin‘s insane block on Deron WIlliams last night, because hey, that’s what we’re here for. But the NBA recognizes greatness, and has the cameras in place to give us a more special look at plays like this when they happen. This super-slow motion look at it makes it seem even more…

  16. Five early season NBA trends to be thankful for

    Nov 22, 2012, 4:29 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Shane Battier

    We are 10 games or so into the NBA season and one thing is clear — this is fun. Not everything is fitting neatly into the preseason prediction boxes and that is the best part of being a sports fan. We at PBT are thankful for a lot of things. All of you who read…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers, Celtics both lose; it’s not the ‘80s anymore

    Nov 22, 2012, 5:22 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Our nightly recap of the games from around the NBA. Or, what you missed while going out tonight because you have to deal with your family tomorrow… Thunder 117, Clippers 111 (OT): Nobody stops Chris Paul, but the Thunder did a better job of slowing him down than anyone has this season and that’s how…

  18. Three Stars of the Night, two Kevins, and one kiss

    Nov 22, 2012, 2:14 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant is guarded by Los Angeles Clippers' Griffin and Odom during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Just a monster 14-game slate this Wednesday night before Thanksgiving, so before we give you our Three Stars, let’s break off a few honorable mentions. In Boston, there was Tony Parker shredding the Celtics for 26 points and six assists on 12-of-17 shooting. In Miami, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade each had 28 points, but…

  19. Thunder 117, Clippers 111: A Chris Paul survival guide

    Nov 22, 2012, 1:44 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Chris Paul is terrifying, and he knows it. Paul doesn’t score just to score — he does it to establish the threat. When you’re 6-foot-nothing in a league filled with giants, you manipulate instead of overwhelm. Paul can have 6 points and it will feel like he’s dominating, just because he made his shadow look…

  20. Metta World Peace rubs Nets coach Avery Johnson’s head after hitting a three (VIDEO)

    Nov 21, 2012, 11:47 AM EST

    Metta World Peace

    Late in the fourth quarter of Tuesday night’s win over the Nets, Metta World Peace hit a three from the corner to cut the New Jersey lead to two. There was no celebration, no flexing, and no kissing of his own biceps after doing so. But he did have a little something for Avery Johnson…

  21. Jeremy Lin thinks he will still be an All-Star. Someday.

    Nov 21, 2012, 8:42 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Based on his play so far this season, Jeremy Lin doesn’t deserve to be an All-Star. He’s been below replacement level. Frankly, he’s looked a young point guard learning how to play in the league and finding his game. He’ll improve, but that’s a process. This year, if the fans don’t vote in Chris Paul…

  22. Popovich calls Spurs soft and an “embarrassment” after loss

    Nov 20, 2012, 12:58 PM EST

    Gregg Popovich

    When it’s a grind-it-out game, the Spurs usually win. They expect to win. But Monday night the Clippers went into San Antonio, had an off night from their leading scorer (Jamal Crawford), had banged up starters, got into a defensive struggle and won. The Clippers ground down the Spurs, played good defense and made the…

  23. Video: Chris Paul hesitates, crosses, spins, then nails dagger for Clippers

    Nov 20, 2012, 8:41 AM EST

    Chris Paul

    The Spurs are too good to make things easy on the Clippers — we all expected this one to go down to the wire and we got just that. Up two with 30 seconds to go in the game Chris Paul had Tony Parker up on him and drove, used a hesitation move to create…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nuggets, Warriors win thrillers

    Nov 20, 2012, 2:26 AM EST

    Andre Miller, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while being thankful you don’t live next door to the guy with 478 birds… Clippers 92, Spurs 87: The temptation is to say it’s too early to say the Clippers are legit contenders. And it is, but they have now beaten…

  25. Clippers 92, Spurs 87: Making a list, checking it twice

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:52 AM EST

    Matt Barnes, Manu Ginobili

    Doubting the legitimacy of the Los Angeles Clippers is not a new or particularly uncommon practice. Despite laying waste to the Grizzlies, Spurs, Lakers and Heat in convincing fashion already, there was a sense that this would be the first true test for the Clippers. They’d be out on the road, against the team that…
