It's not where it needs to be, but it's getting better.
The on-court chemistry between Chris Paul and Blake Griffin hasn't reached its full potential, but as the Clippers have gone deeper into the playoffs, the continuity has shown in key moments.
"It's a lot better than it was at the beginning of the season, but it's a situation where we haven't had much practice time," Griffin said. "We haven't had time other than in real games to work on it. It can be better, and it will get better."
Paul continued to find Griffin in the right spots in the first half Monday in game four, helping Griffin score 16 points. Griffin finished with 30, and Paul scored 27.
