The NBA's golden era for point guards continued to be tarnished on Friday night when Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers announced that Chris Paul will be out three to five weeks with a right shoulder injury suffered in a win against the Dallas Mavericks. Anyone who has watched the Clippers in action during the three seasons with Paul in town knows of the profound value he brings to their group, an impact that's up there with the likes of fellow injured point guards like Boston's Rajon Rondo, Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook and Chicago's Derrick Rose. But just to pound the, um, point, we present a trivia question: Who trails Paul in the Clippers' assist category as the second-ranked playmaker? That's right. It's power forward Blake Griffin (three per game). USA Today Sports

The Clippers' biggest "kid" is meant to be seen and heard. Otherwise, DeAndre Jordan isn't doing all he can to be the defensive menace his team needs. The 6-foot-11, 265-pound center continued to be active on both fronts Wednesday, saving sluggish teammates from a potential letdown against the New Orleans Pelicans. "We had to push through, and I think D.J., his energy, he just kept telling us, 'Come on, come on, fellas,' and we fed off it," Clippers guard Chris Paul, who struggled through an off shooting night, said after his team's 108-95 victory. "I love what D.J.'s doing. He's the corner of our defense." Los Angeles Times

Paul and Anthony have been close for a long time, especially through their experiences with Jordan Brand, two Olympics (2008 and 2012) and spending time together in Los Angeles, where 'Melo resides in the offseason. Paul even attended Anthony's wedding in 2010, reportedly saying, "We'll form our own Big Three," referring to Amar'e Stoudemire as well. According to a source close to the Knicks, "Playing together has been their plan from the beginning." Another source familiar with the situation also noted that their basketball partnership has been in the works for a while, and that's it's the "perfect timing" to make it happen with the Knicks struggling and the Clippers needing a fuse to be lit.

According to Rivers, Paul has done things better than he even thought he would. “He is a better passer than I thought, a way better shooter than I thought,” Rivers said. “I knew he was tough, but he’s tough.” How tough? “As tough as they come,” River said. “It is really nice to have him and it makes me smarter, that is for sure.” Paul says there has been one thing missing during this first part of the season. “When you get to be a good team is when you get consistent,” Paul said. “It is all about consistency.” HoopsHype
