Chris Paul

  1. Kyrie Irving crosses up Monta Ellis and drops a perfect dime (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    Kyrie Irving has the best handle in the NBA. Look, I know what you’re thinking. You’re probably worried that the Clippers’ winning streak has caused me to develop temporary amnesia and forget about the existence of Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford. Those guys are great, but I don’t remember seeing a player with a handle…

  2. Chris Paul’s son apparently not convinced Dad can dunk

    Dec 20, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    There is the video proof. I think we all knew Chris Paul could dunk, he’s plenty athletic, but he’s the below-the-rim guy on the high-flying Clippers. But CP3 threw a quality two hander down against the Hornets on Wednesday night and after the game he tried to get a respect from his son (who is…

  3. Video: Is New York “Lob City?” Sure looks like it lately.

    Dec 20, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Tyson Chandler, Gerald Wallace

    The Clippers — with Chris Paul‘s impeccably-timed passes to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan — has been Lob City ever since Griffin said that when he found out CP3 was coming to Los Angeles. But no combo has connected on more alley-oop dunks this season than Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler of the Knicks. That…

  4. Eric Gordon to rejoin Hornets Saturday, start workouts to return this month

    Dec 20, 2012, 10:28 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon is about to be back with the Hornets. That’s when the work begins. First the work of practices and conditioning to get back on the court following the months of rehab to get his right knee healthy. Then there is the work of winning back a fan base that is ticked at him.…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: That Kevin Durant guy is pretty good

    Dec 20, 2012, 8:29 AM EDT

    Thunder forward Durant reacts after a three point shot against the Atlanta Hawks in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while being more than willing to do your part to fight breast cancer…. Knicks 100, Nets 86: Battle of New York? Not really. The Knick are an elite team that got Carmelo Anthony back and he dropped 31 (that makes it…

  6. Kings players want Isaiah Thomas to start; don’t know what they’re running on offense

    Dec 19, 2012, 10:17 PM EDT

    Isaiah DeMarcus

    If you’ve caught yourself watching a Sacramento Kings game lately and thought to yourself, ‘this can’t get any worse’ only to see it get much, much worse – you’re not the only one. As it turns out, the Kings players themselves are having a real hard time understanding the train wreck they’re a part of…

  7. Monday And-1 Links: Should the Rockets send Jeremy Lin to the bench?

    Dec 17, 2012, 7:29 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    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. • Should the Houston rockets bring Jeremy Lin off the bench? What has been…

  8. Jeremy Lin returns to Madison Square Garden Monday, without “Linsanity”

    Dec 17, 2012, 11:54 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Jeremy Lin is back in the place it all came together for him. But it’s not the same. Monday night Jeremy Lin brings his new team the Houston Rockets into Madison Square Garden to take on the team where for a stretch he played stunningly good, exciting basketball that energized a sullen fan base. It…

  9. The biggest advantage in basketball

    Dec 13, 2012, 7:05 PM EDT

    Chris Paul,  Eric Bledsoe

    A quarter of the way through the season, which team do you think possesses the greatest positional advantage in basketball? Is it the Heat with LeBron overwhelming every 3 in the league? The Thunder with Durant at the 3 and the 4? Carmelo thriving at power forward with the Knicks? Kobe beating up on the…

  10. While you weren’t looking, Golden State got really good

    Dec 13, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

    They are 15-7, on a five-game winning streak all on the road with a signature win now in Miami. Their shooters and offense starting to find a groove while they dominate the glass. They are a team to watch in the Pacific because they are just going to get better. The Lakers wish we were…

  11. Nothing shocking here: Kobe, LeBron lead All-Star ballot early returns

    Dec 13, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    We don’t exactly need Nate Silver to break down these voting returns and trends — the players in the lead early in the NBA All-Star balloting almost always stay on top. Occasionally guys close small gaps, but generally what you see now is what you get. In which case — good job public. No glaring…

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

    Dec 13, 2012, 10:17 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 13, 2012, 6:57 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 12, 2012, 2:59 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 11, 2012, 7:12 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 11, 2012, 4:13 PM EDT

    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…

  17. Utah’s Favors officially diagnosed with plantar fasciitis

    Dec 4, 2012, 11:57 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 4, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 4, 2012, 3:42 AM EDT

    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.…

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

    Dec 4, 2012, 2:13 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 28, 2012, 3:21 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 27, 2012, 1:46 PM EDT

    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…

  24. Three Stars of the Night: Super Sub Edition

    Nov 27, 2012, 1:44 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 25, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    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…
