Fantasy owners were given a nice pre-break gift Sunday night, as Los Angeles Clippers PG Chris Paul (shoulder) was able to return to action. He was limited to 23 minutes, but presumably it was due to the fact the game was so lopsided, and not because of any team-imposed limitations due to his health.
Lob City Isn’t Done: Blake Griffin And Chris Paul Teamed Up For Back-To-Back-To-Back Alley-Oops In 35 Seconds
Before the season started, Blake Griffin said that the Clippers Lob City identity was “done.” Two games into the season, this happened.
Hey look, it’s Dwight Howard and Chris Paul in the same uniform. The two stars are trying to make that happen again. It’s tough to imagine the Clippers and the Lakers working together on a trade, but rumors are flying that the Staples Center roomies might do just that.
With the Clippers now on the cusp of greatness, having a chance to re-sign the league’s best point guard and secure its future long-term, you’d think owner Donald Sterling would finally wise-up to the fact that owning a good team is fun for everyone.
You know when you’re hot and you feel like you can’t miss? That’s what Joey Crawford felt at the end of the Clips Griz game, except with ejecting star players. “I am the law!” Judge Dread once said, channeling Crawford. Everybody in club gettin’ T’s after the jump.
Chris Paul’s Fantastic Game-Winner Is A Little Less Fantastic When You Consider All The Rules He Broke
Big, huge, enormous props to Chris Paul, who cemented his place as one of the league’s best and most clutch players last night. With Game 2 between the Clippers and Grizzlies tied at 91, Paul drove to his right and hit a tough bank shot with 0.1 seconds left, effectively winning the game. If only he hadn’t carried the ball and committed an offensive foul on the way to the hoop — I’d be a lot more impressed.
We’re not sure why Chris Paul so egregiously flopped during Clippers-Kings last night. DeMarcus Cousins didn’t do anything, the teams have no bad blood, and there’s no distinct advantage to a foul call (which didn’t come anyway). But what we’re left with is a pained look on Chris Paul’s face, a no-call, and something to rival the Chris Bosh timber flop.
Chris Paul is really good at basketball. You knew this. He’s the best point guard in the game, and one of the best of all time. His presence has propelled the Clippers franchise to a completely different level over the last two seasons. Seeing him embarrass defenders is nothing new. But the Pacers’ Paul George is no ordinary defender.
