Los Angeles Clippers
Golden State Warriors
Reserves Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes each scored 16 points, and the Clippers easily routed the Memphis Grizzlies 99-73 Monday night with Chris Paul missing his first game this season because of a bruised right kneecap.
The matchup between two of the best teams in the West wasn't close much of the way. While Paul watched from the bench, the Grizzlies were without their leading scorer: Rudy Gay was excused for his grandmother's funeral in Baltimore.
This also was the Clippers' first trip to Memphis since they won Game 7 of their opening-round playoff series last May, and they held the Grizzles to a season-low in points while matching their largest-margin of victory on the road this season.
Eric Bledsoe, starting for Paul, had 14 points, and Blake Griffin scored 10.
Zach Randolph had 15 for Memphis, which lost its second straight. Wayne Ellington added 11 in a rare start, and Darrell Arthur had 10.
Both teams were coming off losses, but the Clippers responded much b...
BEST OF MAXIM
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Clippers point guard Chris Paul has a contusion in his right kneecap and will not play Monday night against the Memphis Grizzlies at the FedExForum.
There also is a good chance that Paul won't play in Houston on Tuesday night in a back-to-back game.
Paul didn't participate in the Clippers' shoot-around earlier Monday, sitting on the sidelines with...
Chris Paul did not play for the Clippers on Tuesday night in Houston. The Clippers still won.
This bears repeating.
For a second consecutive night, Paul spent the game on the bench because of a bruised right kneecap. But his team didn't miss a beat, pulling away from the Houston Rockets with a big third quarter in a 117-109 win at Toyota Center.
Unbelievable, right? In truth...
HOUSTON -- While Chris Paul is unquestionably an MVP candidate, Los Angeles Clippers guard Jamal Crawford continues to state his case for an All-Star Game selection despite not having started one game this season. The Clippers performed exceptionally without Paul for a second consecutive game, taking their cue from Crawford en route to a 117-109 victory over the Houston Rockets...
Matt Barnes may be coming off the bench for the Los Angeles Clippers, but he's posting big numbers.
In Monday night's 99-73 win over the Memphis Grizzlies, Barnes led the Clips with 16 points (6-11 FG and 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two steals and two three-pointers.
Barnes has been filling up box scores all season; he's averaging 11 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists...
CBSSports.com: Chris Paul is held as the gold standard in this league when it comes to the point guard position. His work ethic, skill, the way he’s so proficient at everything. But even then, I really believe Kyrie has a chance to be the best point guard in the league in the next, really, four to five years. Do you agree?
Byron Scott: I think it is. I think one thing that he...

The Los Angeles Clippers had to do battle without their star point guard. Chris Paul sat out last night's game against the Memphis Grizzlies with a bruised right knee cap. The injury was suffered toward the end of Saturday's game. He had been listed as day-to-day leading up to last night's contest, but he was not able to go.According to Arash Markazi of ESPN Los...
Chris Paul will miss his second game tonight, according to Houston Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen on Twitter.
Paul missed Monday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies after banging knees with J.J. Redick over the weekend.
The Clips play the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday, so CP3 owners will have to hope he's back in time for them.
The Clippers will once again...
Last night Chris Paul sat out with a swollen knee and will probably miss tonight game, as well. If you’re interested please feel to grab Eric Bledsoe as a streamer everywhere. All he did last night in Paul’s stead was drop 14/3/4 with 2 steals in 28 minutes as the Clips blew out Memphis. Assuming the game is more competitive tonight I’d expect Eric to be closer to 35 minutes...

MEMPHIS – The last time the Los Angeles Clippers were seen in the FedExForum, they broke hearts last April by winning the seventh game of a Western Conference first-round playoff series over the Memphis Grizzlies. The Griz ran out of gas in that game. On Monday, though, in the same place against the same team, the Grizzlies were merely dead on arrival in their worst home performance...

I love jock fashion. Today’s athletes aren’t afraid to express themselves via fashion. Some days that works out really well and other times, it gives us great giggles! Let’s take a look at some of my favorite ensembles from last week. Thunder star Russell Westbrook was giving his best Martin Lawrence “You so Crazy” look, [...]
Eric Bledsoe posted another great line in fill-in duty for Chris Paul Tuesday night in the Clippers' 117-109 win against the Houston Rockets.
Bledsoe scored 19 points, knocked down a three, grabbed seven rebounds, dished five assists and swiped two balls. He shot 7-of-12 from the field and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line. He's deserving of an add while CP3 sits with a...
