Chris Paul was quiet in Wednesday night’s loss to the Warriors, scoring 15 points with five assists, six boards, one triple and one steal.
It’s a testament to his brilliance that this type of balanced line can even be called “quiet,” but he and the rest of the Clippers were simply outgunned by Golden State. The Warriors pulled ahead early behind Klay Thompson and Draymond Green and never gave the Clippers a chance to find their offensive rhythm. Paul’s elite assist and steals numbers have made him a top-10 player so far this year and there’s no reason that should change while he’s healthy.
