Chris Paul

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

    Nov 22, 2012, 1:44 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 21, 2012, 11:47 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 21, 2012, 8:42 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 20, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 20, 2012, 8:41 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 20, 2012, 2:26 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:52 AM EDT

    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…

  8. Video: Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan with steals, lobs, slams

    Nov 18, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    There are other contenders for the title, but the Clippers remain the king of highlights. In part because they have Blake Griffin and D’Andre Jordan — the most athletic front line in the NBA. But mostly because they have Chris Paul — watch the lobs on the second of these dunks, almost a volleyball set…

  9. J.R. Smith says Jerryd Bayless may have ‘little man’s complex’ after altercation

    Nov 17, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    J R Smith, Tony Allen

    Late in the second quarter of the Grizzlies’ win over the Knicks on Friday, J.R. Smith and Jerryd Bayless got into it briefly, and received double technicals for the extracurricular activity. Smith appeared to catch Bayless with an elbow after curling around a Rasheed Wallace screen, and Bayless retaliated with a shot to the face.…

  10. Hornets extend contract of GM Dell Demps. Smart move.

    Nov 16, 2012, 11:26 AM EDT

    Dell Demps

    First new Hornets owner Tom Benson locked up coach Monty Williams with a multi-year deal. Now the Hornets have locked up general manager Dell Demps to keep their core in place. Smart move, Mr. Benson. The Hornets have agreed to a multi-year contract extension with Demps, the team announced Friday. (We’re still trying to find…

  11. Heat don’t need Wade to beat offensively-challenged Nuggets

    Nov 16, 2012, 2:00 AM EDT

    Dwayne Wade, LeBron James

    This would have been an easy game for the Miami Heat to lose. The team was playing on the second night of a back-to-back after getting blown out in Los Angeles by the Clippers on Wednesday, and was playing without Dwyane Wade, who sat this one out due to a foot injury. All it would…

  12. Clippers have no trouble blowing out your defending champion Miami Heat

    Nov 15, 2012, 1:54 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The Clippers can make a legitimate claim to the title of the league’s top team, or at the very least, the best in the Western Conference. Their record now stands at 6-2 after an impressive routing of the Heat on Wednesday 107-100, and the teams ahead of them in the standings — the Spurs and…

  13. Video: Kyrie Irving turns Kris Humphries into a statue with a sick pass

    Nov 13, 2012, 11:15 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    A good way to gauge a player’s star value is to watch how opposing crowds treat him. With the Cavaliers visiting Brooklyn tonight, Kyrie Irving absolutely wowed the crowd with his insane handling and off the cuff passes, winning over the fans like he was Rocky in Russia. How good was Irving in a night…

  14. Chris Paul now owns part of a professional bowling team

    Nov 10, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Chris Paul bowling

    Chris Paul loves to bowl. Some of you just raised your eyebrows but I’m not kidding, he loves to bowl. He hosts a celebrity bowling tournament every year and everything. And now he owns part of a new professional bowling team. The PBA (the professional bowling tour folks) have decided to try and grab some…

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

    Nov 7, 2012, 10:10 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 6, 2012, 11:48 AM EDT

    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…

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

    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.…

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

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 3, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 3, 2012, 3:16 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 2, 2012, 10:06 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    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.…

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

    Nov 1, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 1, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    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,…

    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…
