With many predicting the Clippers as a title contender, their 1-5 preseason record heading into last night’s game against the Suns did not bode well for their championship aspirations. So Paul, along with fellow all-star, Blake Griffin, decided to treat their second-to-last preseason contest like they had something to prove. Read More »

This sick halfcourt alley-oop against the Golden State Warriors is just such an example. Read More »
