The All-Star Point Guard scored a pre-season high of 40 points, whilst also racking up 11 assists and 7 rebounds in the pre-season thriller against Denver, and outlined the kind of performances Clippers fans will be hoping to see this season with Doc Rivers at the helm.
Darren Collison also added 27 for the Clippers, with Forward Blake Griffin adding a further 17 points.
Denver had seven players score in double figures in a balanced scoring attack, and could have stolen the game late in regulation, but Javale McGee failed to convert his mid-range buzzer beater.
The Clippers will see this as a great performance with the regular season creeping up on the league and will be hoping to see Paul produce even more dazzling performances when the games are added to the standings.

It’s a rare thing to see when an athlete walks away from the game early or while still at the peak of their primes. Barry Sanders certainly did it.
