Chris Paul

  1. Three Stars of the Night whose seasons are over

    Apr 18, 2013, 2:23 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Miami Heat

    Pau Gasol (17 points, 20 rebounds and 11 assists), John Henson (28 points and 16 rebounds), Zach Randolph (25 points and 19 rebounds), Chris Paul (25 points, 11 assists and no turnovers) and Gerald Green (34 points) will have at least a chance to make their mark in the playoffs, but we’re honoring three players…

  2. PBT’s NBA season awards: LeBron for MVP is the easy one

    Apr 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Heat's James prepares to dunk against the Bulls in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami

    In the NBA, reputations are made and broken in the playoffs — but that is like a different season completely. The NBA gives out its awards based on the regular season. And this season a couple awards are obvious, but a couple could go a lot of different directions. Here are PBT’s awards for the…

  3. Clippers keep dream of three seed alive with easy win over Blazers

    Apr 17, 2013, 1:55 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    In the last couple weeks the Clippers have hit a playoff stride — they had won five games in a row coming into Tuesday night and they were motivated because they still had playoff seeding to play for. On the other side the Trail Blazers had lost 11 in a row and have looked like…

  4. Tuesday And-1 links: Dennis Rodman is heading back to North Korea

    Apr 16, 2013, 7:50 PM EDT

    Retired U.S. NBA basketball player Rodman is welcomed by Son, Vice Chairman of North Korea's Olympic Committe, as he arrives in Pyongyang

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • It’s his life so I pass this along without comment: Dennis Rodman has…

  5. Pistons owner says he expects playoffs next year; quiet on Dumars, Frank

    Apr 16, 2013, 11:46 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons head coach Frank talks with Pistons players during their NBA basketball game against the Toronto Raptors in Auburn Hills

    It’s not hard to see some serious potential in Detroit — rookie Andre Drummond is the real deal and paired with Greg Monroe could form the best front line in basketball in a couple years. Add in some young backcourt guys like Brandon Knight and Kyle Singler who could have a role, and you’ve got…

  6. Baseline-to-baseline recaps: Heat set franchise record for wins, Lakers remain in playoff position

    Apr 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while waiting for Microsoft Office to come to your mobile devices … Lakers 113, Trail Blazers 106: Kobe Bryant scored 47 points to out-duel rookie Damian Lillard, who finished with 38. Bryant dragged his team to victory for the second straight night, and…

  7. What Wednesday’s games mean: Heat can lock up best record; Lakers need win

    Apr 10, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    There is one week of NBA regular-season basketball left — next Wednesday, April 17 is the final day of games, then we get to focus on the playoffs. Right now teams are jockeying for playoff position — or in the case of the Lakers and Jazz a spot in the playoffs. Which means a lot…

  8. Fans tweets to count toward MVP voting

    Apr 9, 2013, 8:15 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James trots back after scoring a basket against the Philadelphia 76ers in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    LeBron James is going to win his fourth MVP going away. It’s a sure thing. But if you think we in the media are clearly missing how great Tyler Hansbrough has been this season and think there should be a vote for him, now you can do it yourself on twitter. The NBA is taking…

  9. Quote of the Day: Dwight Howard says Lakers could still win title

    Apr 9, 2013, 3:38 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    “If we get into the playoffs, there’s no doubt in my mind and in any of our minds, that we can win a championship. It would be stupid of me to sit here and say to you [media] guys that if we make it to the playoffs, we’ll be out in the first round. I…

  10. Carmelo Anthony passes LeBron for top selling jersey

    Apr 9, 2013, 10:18 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony reacts after scoring against Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    LeBron James may be the best player in the NBA, but Carmelo Anthony is the biggest star on the biggest NBA stage — the scorer leading the best New York Knicks team in more than a decade — and that sells a lot of jerseys. Anthony moved past LeBron into the top spot in national…

  12. NBA Power Rankings: Knicks climb up to No. 2

    Apr 8, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd

    Welcome to the penultimate PBT power rankings for the season. If you win 12 games in a row you can get the No. 2 spot, but if you asked me to pick who wins a seven game series between the Thunder and Knicks it would look different than this ranking. Same with the Spurs. But…

  13. Report: Hornets still looking to move Eric Gordon this summer

    Apr 8, 2013, 10:20 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets' Gordon reacts after a call by officials while his team took on the Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in New Orleans

    At the trade deadline the New Orleans Hornets had some discussions about trades for shooting guard Eric Gordon, but nothing came of it. Not surprising — it’s not easy to move a guy on a max contract coming off knee surgery. But after an up and down season where he averaged 16.5 points on 40.2…

  14. Blake Griffin was dunking all over Lakers Sunday (VIDEO)

    Apr 8, 2013, 9:01 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin smiles after hitting a three-point shot against the Los Angeles Lakers during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Blake Griffin dunks on a lot of teams. Of course, it’s easy to say a lot of teams don’t have Dwight Howard protecting the rim and the Lakers shouldn’t allow this. The problem for the Lakers is their perimeter defense is so poor Howard is often trying to stop the guard driving in for a…

  15. Three Stars of the Night: Three All-Stars lead teams to wins

    Apr 8, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    This was a tough night to narrow the list to three, some guys with huge games miss the cut — Russell Westbrook with 36 points and a near triple-double, Nikola Vucevic with 21 points and 21 boards for the Magic. But there was a key theme to go with for the night — current or…

  16. Do Clippers have chemistry issues? Depends who you ask.

    Apr 5, 2013, 7:29 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Clippers

    We need to acknowledge that this is a historic season for the Los Angeles Clippers — it is the franchise’s first time ever to 50 wins and first time ever it will win the Pacific Division. Some luck in the draft, some aggressive moves by management and owner Donald Sterling writing bigger checks has changed…

  17. Kenneth Faried finishes half-court alley-oop from Andre Miller (VIDEO)

    Apr 4, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    The veteran Andre Miller may throw the best lob pass in the NBA right now. Chris Paul is right there, but Miller has a great court sense and is so accurate with his passes. Kenneth Faried can finish. If your nickname is “manimal” you better know how to dunk with authority. Combine them and you…

  18. Why are the Clippers vulnerable? Defense (or coaching)

    Apr 2, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    Before the season started what was the mantra about the Clippers on this site (and most others)? It’s all about the defense. With Chris Paul and Blake Griffin (who has a more diverse game than many fans give him credit for), plus Jamal Crawford off the bench, the Clippers were going to score points. A…

  19. John Wall admits a number of point guards are better than him, still wants to get paid

    Apr 2, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    John Wall

    It remains one of the interesting questions of the NBA off-season: How much do the Wizards offer John Wall in a contract extension? The Wizards are going to make an offer and they’ve suggested it’s substantial. I think something close to Stephen Curry’s four year, $44 million seems about right. Since getting back and healthy…

  20. NBA Power Rankings: The streak is dead, the Heat not so much…

    Apr 1, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    350x-1

    Only two more power rankings after this, so we are starting to turn our view toward the playoffs. Which still feel like the Heat then everyone else. 1. Heat (58-15, last week ranked No. 1). A gutty performance by the Chicago Bulls ended the Heat win streak at 27. But that was a one-time performance,…

  21. Chris Paul says Greivis Vasquez talks too much

    Mar 28, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Greivis Vasquez, Blake Griffin

    Chris Paul and Greivis Vasquez appeared to jaw at each other in the final seconds of the Clippers’ 105-91 win over the Hornets on Wednesday. After the game, Paul was interviewed on the court during the Hornets’ broadcast. “He just talk way too much, man,” Paul said. “He talk too much. I don’t – he…

  22. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Heat finally lose, Knicks now streaking

    Mar 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Martin congratulates Anthony after being fouled by Memphis Grizzlies during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while trying to figure out what caused these pond circles … Bulls 101, Heat 97: It had to end sometime, and Wednesday was the night Miami finally lost after winning 27 straight, ending the second longest streak of victories in NBA history. We…

  23. Wild end to regulation in Mavericks win over Clippers (VIDEO)

    Mar 27, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul drives on Dallas Mavericks Nowitzki during their NBA game in Dallas, Texas

    These were the final three plays of regulation from a dramatic game: First Chris Paul drives around 6’7″ Shawn Marion then elevating and going over 6’8″ Elton Brand, off the glass and in for a bucket that put the Clippers up two. Paul scored the last 10 points for the Clippers in regulation, he was…

  24. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Knicks have won five in a row

    Mar 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while imagining playing video games at the urinal…. Mavericks 109, Clippers 102 (OT): Chris Paul did his best to lift the Clippers — 33 points on 15 shots, including scoring the team’s last 10 points in regulation. But it wasn’t enough and he…

  25. Three Stars of the night: CP3, Dirk trade shots in Dallas

    Mar 27, 2013, 3:51 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Best game of the night was in Dallas, and we’ve got two from that game. Plus the hot hand that did in Boston. Third Star: Chris Paul (33 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists) For much of the game Dallas took the strategy of making Chris Paul the scorer for the Clippers. This is the same…
