Chris Paul returns to help James Harden, Rockets thump Suns

Chris Paul returns to help James Harden, Rockets thump Suns

The Rockets are already setting franchise records with Chris Paul in the lineup. James Harden scored 48 points, and Chris Paul returned to the lineup with a vintage double-double in just 21 minutes of action, while the Rockets set a franchise record with 90 points in the first half on their way to a 142-116 destruction of the Phoenix Suns. Paul and Harden, who were last seen on the court together in the Rockets’ season-opening win over the Golden State Warriors, picked up right where they left off, and they really turned on the jets in the first half. So much so that The Bearded One told...

CP3 returns on national TV. It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for. Chris Paul returns to the lineup after a one-month absence. We’re all eagerly anticipating what the Houston offense will look like tonight with another play maker, though CP3 will be kept on a strict 20-minute limit. In addition for the Rockets, Nene will also return to the court tonight after sitting out with a foot injury, though Luc Mbah a Moute will miss the game with an illness. Luc Mbah a Moute is out with an illness for Rockets vs. Suns tonight.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) November 17,...

Houston Rockets vs. Phoenix Suns game preview

It’s the return of Chris Paul and literally nothing else matters. I can see it now: Houston struggles to integrate Paul quickly and soon fans call for the Rockets to just stick the ball in James Harden’s hands and play the same offense as last season. After all, that’s what got Houston 11-4, so that’s what works. Right? Wrong. The Rockets didn’t get Chris Paul for the regular season. The Rockets didn’t get Chris Paul just so Harden could keep running the offense and piling up unimportant regular season wins. The Rockets traded a chunk of their rotation for Paul because of April,...

Chris Paul will return Thursday night

The Rockets will finally get CP3 back on the court. He’s back. Chris Paul, the key offseason acquisition of the Houston Rockets, is finally expected to return to the lineup after sitting out a month with a bruised knee.

Chris Paul should be back soon

Chris Paul should be back soon

The Rockets’ star point guard is getting healthy, and everyone is ready for his return. The Houston Rockets have gotten off to a fast start this season, sprinting out to an 8-3 record that has them sitting atop the Western Conference standings. It’s been even more impressive that they’ve done it without their top offseason acquisition. Chris Paul has only played one game so far this season due to a knee injury, and up until now, it’s been pretty unclear when the star point guard will return. But according to head coach Mike D’Antoni, we should be seeing Paul back on the court...

James Harden's Hot Hand Complicates Chris Paul's Eventual Return

James Harden has Houston's offense humming once again. Will the Rockets turn over the keys to Chris Paul once he returns from injury? Or will a different strategy reveal itself?

Despite parting ways with the veteran guard, there’s no doubting the Clippers' desire to beat the Warriors. Unfortunately for them (and 28 other teams), their ability to pull it off is a problem.

For Clippers, Pistons Match-Up A Reminder that Early Success Can Be Fleeting

Things were going great at the beginning of last season, too. It was only 11 months ago—November 21st, 2016—when national pundits were essentially in agreement that the Clippers were among the best teams in basketball. They had risen to the top spot in quite a few of the major national power rankings (Sports Illustrated, CBS Sports, NBA.com), and HoopsHype had Clippers guard Chris Paul in first place in the MVP race (with Blake Griffin in 8th). The Clippers were 14-2, with one of the best SRS marks of any team in NBA history, heading into a November 25th game against the Detroit...

The Clippers Are Still the Best Show in Los Angeles

Are the Clippers a better team without Chris Paul? Let’s not even entertain that idea. But the team's 4-0 start has proved one thing: Blake Griffin and his new teammates are certainly more fun to watch.

Clippers Blaze an Escape from Portland

Blake Griffin’s buzzer beater gives the Clippers a 104-103 victory. Chris Paul may have left for Houston, but the Los Angeles Clippers still have their franchise player in Blake Griffin. The Clippers remained undefeated (4-0) after Griffin hit a three-pointer to beat the final buzzer and give the Clippers a hard fought road victory in Portland, 104 to 103. Griffin led the Clippers with another impressive line of 25 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists. His only blemish on the night was his poor 3/8 from the free throw line. The Portland Trail Blazers (3-2) were led by their guard duo of...

Preview: Clippers Head to Portland for First Big Test

After three easy wins in Los Angeles, the Clippers head to Portland for their first true road test of the young season. The Big Picture The 2017-18 Los Angeles Clippers are the best defensive team in the history of the sport. Don’t @ me. Most expected the Clippers to play a plucky, grind-it-out style with Patrick Beverley replacing Chris Paul, but Doc Rivers has to be incredibly pleased with the way his team has started the new season. Despite having to incorporate a number of new faces, the Clips have looked like a well-oiled machine on both ends of the floor. It’s only been three...
