Chris Paul

  1. Chris Paul’s shoe closet is bigger, has more Jordans than yours

    chris-paul-sneaker-room

    So, I’m thinking Chris Paul is a sneakerhead. That photo you see to the right is from one of the bedrooms in his Los Angeles area home that was converted into a shoe closet. Seriously. Then again what else was he going to do with hundreds and hundreds of Jordans. Our own D.J. Foster would…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: Streakers go to front of the line

    Mar 25, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Kings Heat Basketball

    Obviously the Heat are undefeated in their last 10 games, but in the East the Brooklyn Nets are the only team with a better than .500 record in their last 10 games. Which is why after the Heat the next five spots on this list come from the Western Conference. 1. Heat (54-14, last week…

  3. Chris Paul finishes incredible and-1 play to seal Clippers’ win over Nets (VIDEO)

    Mar 24, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Deron Williams

    This wasn’t one of the best games played by the Clippers, when you look at the entirety of their night of basketball against the Nets. But Chris Paul is good enough to to take over a tight game and drag his team to victory, and that’s exactly what went down in the fourth quarter of…

  4. Chris Paul, Tyreke Evans get flopping warnings from league

    Mar 21, 2013, 5:57 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Since the calender turned to 2013, the NBA had issued only four flopping warnings, something pointed out by Beckley Mason at TrueHoop. You’d like to say that the league early season push to reform behavior had an impact on the incidents of flopping (I’m sure it did have some), but often when the league pushes…

  5. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Night of wild finishes all over NBA map

    Mar 21, 2013, 9:19 AM EDT

    Marc Gasol, Kevin Durant

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while reading the oral history of Ace of Bass’ one hit…. Heat 98, Cavaliers 95: Crazy game. I mean certifiable, off its meds kind of game. Starting with a 40-minute delay at the start to fix a coolant leak in the scoreboard that…

  6. Chris Paul may have had the flop of the year (VIDEO)

    Mar 20, 2013, 10:58 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I know the video quality is not great, but that video does a great job of getting you to see what is my new favorite flop of the year. Chris Paul kind of makes contact with DeMarcus Cousins on Tuesday night then tries to sell a flop with some Keanu Reeves doing Shakespeare bad acting. Whoa.…

  7. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Clippers lose, fall to fourth

    Mar 20, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Isaiah Thomas, Chris Paul

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while rethinking everything you knew about Star Wars…. Nuggets 114, Thunder 104: Denver won their 13th game in a row and in doing so made a statement that come the playoffs they are not to be dismissed. The Thunder went cold for the…

  8. Three Stars of the Night: Fourth quarter heroes edition

    Mar 20, 2013, 2:31 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas, Chris Paul

    There were people who put up bigger numbers on each of their teams, but these three players had the big fourth quarters that got their teams the win Tuesday night. So yes, that means guys like Kevin Durant with big lines (34 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists) miss the cut. That’s life. Third Star: Monta…

  9. Chris Paul with the spin move, behind-the-back, half-court alley-oop pass (VIDEO)

    Mar 20, 2013, 1:38 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Isaiah Thomas

    The Clippers are a nightly highlight show. And Chris Paul is the ringmaster — he knows how to set up the show, keep it moving, and entertain the crowd by himself when he needs to. And against the Kings Tuesday he did a little of that — he made a beautiful move at halfcourt that…

  10. Cuban thinks Nowitzki can be elite three more years. Dirk not so sure.

    Mar 19, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Mike Scott

    It took a while after he recovered from knee surgery during training camp, but Dirk Nowizki is back to being his old self. In his last five games he’s averaged 19.6 points per game on 50.7 percent shooting and 52.6 percent from three. He’s pulling down 9.2 boards a game, too. Basically, All-Star numbers. So…

  11. Monday And-1 Links: Paternity suit against Michael Jordan dropped

    Mar 18, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    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 like I love a good Guinness…. • We told you when it happened, to…

  12. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Clippers dust off what’s left of the Knicks

    Mar 18, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Clippers center Jordan dunks the ball uncontested against the Knicks during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while making the case for the 68th team, the one left out of the NCAA Tournament, because they really had a shot to win it all…. Heat 108, Raptors 91: The Heat tied the second longest winning streak in NBA history with this…

  13. Blake Griffin finishes monster one-handed alley-oop in Clippers’ win over Knicks

    Mar 17, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    We showed you DeAndre Jordan getting loose for a windmill jam on a fast break early in the Clippers’ win over the Knicks, and as it turned out, that was only the beginning of the highlight show. Blake Griffin got his share of dunks along the way, none more exciting than this one-handed throwdowm off…

  14. Clippers know team they have been recently isn’t good enough

    Mar 15, 2013, 3:02 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    More and more it feels like they are just not there yet. The Clippers are 6-4 in their last 10, and as it has been with the Clippers the second half of the season you can’t say that is bad. They keep scoring points, they keep having highlights, they keep getting wins and having moments…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: After the Heat it gets interesting

    Mar 11, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers guard Stephenson is guarded by Heat forward Andersen and Battier during their NBA game at the American Airlines Arena in Miami

    Going to be an interesting week out West — Thunder and Spurs on Monday, while the Grizzlies play the Clippers and Nuggets this week. Those games don’t foreshadow playoff outcomes as much as hint at seedings — if Denver can get home court in the first round whoever has to face them is in trouble.…

  16. Clippers try to jump-start defense for playoff run. Hapless Pistons help out.

    Mar 11, 2013, 1:06 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Brandon Knight

    LOS ANGELES — Since the start of the season there have been two questions that seem to define just how far the Clippers can go: 1) How good is DeAndre Jordan playing at the five? 2) How good is the Clippers defense? The answer to both of those questions of late was “not good.” Which…

  17. DeAndre Jordan flat out destroys Brandon Knight (VIDEO)

    Mar 10, 2013, 10:55 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    DeAndre Jordan would like you to witness his entrant in the Dunk of the Year contest. It’s a good one. First off, that is a fantastic alley-oop pass from Chris Paul, he anticipated this really well. Brandon Knight did not, and so he ends up the unwitting guy just getting destroyed. I was at the…

  18. Two 10-day contracts: Maalik Wayns to Clippers; Malcolm Thomas to Warriors

    Mar 8, 2013, 11:11 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Dallas Mavericks

    ‘Tis the season for 10-day contracts as teams take a look at guys who are not going to see a lot of action in the short term but teams might want to keep around through the summer and see if they can develop. A couple of those came up Friday. The Clippers have signed Maalik…

  19. Sixers CEO calls Andrew Bynum trade a move that “should have worked”

    Mar 4, 2013, 10:19 PM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    There is a palpable frustration surrounding the Philadelphia 76ers. Whether you’re a fan watching at home, a season ticket holder, the head coach, or an executive in the front office, the odds are that you are not happy with the way this season has progressed. They have lost eight of their last 10 games, are…

  20. Thunder overcome late rally by Clippers to win a physical one in Los Angeles

    Mar 3, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    ibaka griffin

    The Thunder and the Clippers are likely second round playoff opponents, should neither team be able to overtake the Spurs for the number one overall seed in the Western Conference. If it ends up happening, and if Sunday’s contest at Staples Center was any indication, we’d be in for a battle of epic proportions. Oklahoma…

  21. PBT Podcast: Warriors, Clippers, Bulls, Lakers, and some Heat talk with Ira Winderman

    Mar 1, 2013, 1:40 PM EDT

    Lebrion James, Dwyane Wade

    In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I discuss the amazing 54-point performance put in by Stephen Curry during a loss to the Knicks earlier this week. We look at the Warriors playoff prospects, before looking back at last night’s games, the best of which didn’t make TNT’s nationally televised schedule. Chris Paul…

  22. Three Stars of the Night: Two guys from Los Angeles and a Frenchman

    Mar 1, 2013, 1:29 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    There were three games Thursday night and each one had a clear star. Actually, each was an All-Star. Third Star: Kobe Bryant (33 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists) Kobe Bryant played like a guy trying to will his team into the playoffs — he returned to scoring mode on Thursday night, but it was hard…

  23. Chris Paul makes sure the Clippers leave with a win over Pacers

    Feb 28, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul looks to get past defending Indiana Pacers' West and Pendergraph during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    The Clippers probably thought they had sealed a quality road win over the Pacers much earlier than they had, getting out to a lead of as many as 17 points with 5:38 remaining in regulation. But as they’ve done all season long, the Pacers refused to quit, and went on a furious 13-0 run in…

  24. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Kings take Heat two overtimes

    Feb 27, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    LeBron James,

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while scrolling through the Florida Man twitter feed…. Heat 141, Kings 129 (2OT): What looked like a blowout on paper ended up being the best game of the night. The Kings may deny it was a moral victory for them, but it was.…

  25. Blake Griffin put on a dunking exhibition against Bobcats (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Bismack Biyombo

    If you’re going to beat the Clippers, you have to take away their ability to get easy baskets. The Bobcat’s didn’t. Blake Griffin was catching lobs and throwing them down all night from Chris Paul against the Charlotte “defense” and that was one of a few reasons the Clippers cruised to a 106-84 win. Above…
