HoopsHype Chris Paul rumors

April 28, 2014 Updates

Contrary to Paul and Blake Griffin, Clippers Glen Davis and Redick acknowledged they were distracted over the Sterling situation. "There was a lot going on today," Redick said. "Unfortunately besides all the peripheral stuff, we played a team that played a great basketball game." Said Davis: "You're going to think about it. It's on your brain. It's on your mind. You can feel it. But you got to move past it and move forward." Yahoo! Sports

Golden State Coach Mark Jackson said the disparaging comments attributed to Sterling affected his team as well. Jackson said he had to spend some time talking to his players, but he also was opposed to boycotting the game. "You stand up there and you answer questions as an African American man, and you sound intelligent and you carry yourself and conduct yourself to answer and let people know," Jackson said. "You make a statement by who you are, by players like Steph Curry and Chris Paul getting after it and still communicating and still calling and texting, by handling yourself with class. That's how you respond." Los Angeles Times

Chris Paul couldn't stop watching the play. Once. Twice. Again. Another time. It bothered him that he didn't make the right call in a late three-on-one, getting his shot blocked by Harrison Barnes instead of passing to J.J. Redick. That didn't even compare with the two free throws he missed with 11 seconds left in the Clippers' 109-105 loss to Golden State in Saturday's playoff opener. Long night for Paul. Long Sunday too. "I looked at it, I think, six different times [Sunday] morning," Paul said of the missed three-on-one chance. Los Angeles Times

He rolled his eyes at a reporter Sunday when told about the NBA's ruling, not even needing to say the obvious — the Clippers still shouldn't have lost at home to the undermanned Warriors. Los Angeles Times

In this Clippers game against the Nuggets, Chris Paul pulled a herky-jerky baseline move that just left Evan Fournier pondering exactly where his man was. He was possibly also pondering existential questions like “What is basketball?” and “What does it really mean to ‘guard’ someone?” but that’s just conjecture on my part. For The Win

Erase the name "David Stern" and the phrase "basketball reasons" from your memory bank. Grab a stack of oversized Cliff Paul heads from the State Farm commercials and hold them over your heads while marching down Santa Monica Boulevard. Move on. For some reason, it still isn't happening. "I thought the city would have embraced him," Clippers forward Blake Griffin said of Paul. "I mean, it seems like everywhere we go, people love Chris. I don't know why he would get booed at a Dodger game." Los Angeles Times

Blake Griffin and Chris Paul scored 23 points apiece, and the Los Angeles Clippers hung another rout on the Lakers, winning 120-97 Sunday to take three of four games this season from their beleaguered Staples Center co-tenants. It wasn't quite the blowout of the Clippers' previous two wins — 48 points on March 6 and 36 points on Jan. 10 — but they were easily in command as the designated home team. J.J. Redick added 15 points and DeAndre Jordan had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacific Division-winning Clippers, who improved to 32-6 at home. USA Today Sports
