PLAYA VISTA, Calif. Winning is supposed to cure everything, but in the case of Mo Williams, it's going to take some time.
On a Los Angeles Clippers team filled with star power, Williams is suddenly a backup. It's not a role he figured to play this season, but it's one he was forced to assume when the team acquired point guard Chris Paul from the New Orleans Hornets last month.
Williams, a starter virtually his entire NBA career, has given the Clippers a visible energy off the bench. In Wednesday night's 117-89 victory over the Houston Rockets, he had seven points and seven assists in 22 minutes.
But the transition is coming slowly, which is understandable when you think about it.
"A month and a half ago, this was his team," teammate Chauncey Billups said. "It's going to be an adjustment period, but I don't worry about him. He's a mature veteran. He's been around the league. He'll be fine."
Williams, 28, sounded evasive w...

22-year old power forward Blake Griffin is off to a blazing start this year for the Los Angeles Clippers. He has played in 4 games (all starts) for the Clippers so far this year and he is averaging 36.8 minutes, 26.0 points, 9.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steals per game. He is shooting 54.8% from the floor so far this year, as his range is starting to expand. Griffin is...
Over the years the Los Angeles Clipper have been the worst pro sports franchises in all of sports. Both in terms of record, moves of management and some much more. This pre season the Clippers made a trade that showed they were committed to winning for once.
They traded away a handful of players to the New Orleans Hornets in return for superstar point guard Chris Paul...

LOS ANGELES — “I actually feel like I’m cheating when I play in my shoe,” Chris Paul said, holding aloft his latest signature kick, the Jordan CP3.V.
Paul was speaking this afternoon to a crowd of media gathered in downtown Los Angeles at the Cooper Tower. Jordan Brand transformed an empty loft space atop the building into a temporary showroom...

The likes of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are benefiting from the calming presence of Chris Paul and the savvy of Chauncey Billups, who have preached the need for steady progress.The likes of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are benefiting from the calming presence of Chris Paul and the savvy of Chauncey Billups, who have preached the need for steady progress.
It’s been quite a good new NBA season for the Los Angeles Clippers. They already boasted one of the brightest young frontcourts in the league with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan and things only got better when the stole all-star point guard Chris Paul away from their Staples Center co-tenants the Los Angeles Lakers.
The move instantly made the Clippers relevant...
Blake Griffin had 22 points and nine assists before sitting out most of the fourth quarter, Chris Paul added 20 points and 10 assists, and the Los Angeles Clippers cruised to a 117-89 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. Paul shot 9 for 14 and had three steals, extending his streak to 14 consecutive games with at least one.
After years of futility, the new-look Los Angeles Clippers are suddenly anything but lacking in confidence.
The same can't be said for the Milwaukee Bucks, who let another potential win slip away their last time out.
The Clippers look for an 11th victory in 12 home meetings with a Bucks team hoping to avoid opening 0-5 on the road for the first time in seven seasons Saturday...
Chris Paul visited the Jimmy Kimmel show this week, and handled all of Jimmy’s jabs about the Clippers’ lack of success in the past—and his snide remarks about CP3 preferring the Lakers. He also talked about how he’s living, his recent marriage and of course, hoops.
