Chris Paul credits LA Clippers teammates for 19 assists

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I mean, I’ve got the easy part, all I have to do is pass and the others guys have the hard part of making the shot. J.J. (Redick) made shots, D.J. (DeAndre Jordan), Paul (Pierce), Wes (Johnson), all those guys.”Paul was almost right. Redick scored 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting, Pierce scored 17 and was 5 of 6 from 3-point range and Jordan had 14 points and went 6 of 7 from the field.As for Johnson, he struggled mightily, making just 1 of 7 shots while scoring five points.Rivers feeling goodReserve guard Austin Rivers contributed nicely Wednesday, scoring 16 points while making seven of his 10 shots, including both of his field-goal attempts from beyond the arc. Chris Paul has averaged 9.9 assists over a career now in its 11th season. Suffice to say, the Clippers point guard has had some big games.The biggest came Nov. 6, 2007, when he doled out 21 assists against the Lakers when he was with New Orleans/Oklahoma City.Paul came close to that number Wednesday when he delivered 19 assists in the Clippers’ 109-98 victory at Portland. Paul didn’t want to take much credit, though, for racking up the most assists in his five seasons as a Clipper.“I didn’t know that, but I always say, ‘Get assists,”’ said Paul, whose Clippers (23-13), have won seven consecutive games — the past six without injured Blake Griffin.center_img Over his past four games he has scored 22, nine, 26 and 16 points on 28-of-46 shooting (60.8 percent) and by going 11 of 17 (64.7 percent) from 3-point range. Before this run, he was shooting 40.5 percent from the field and just 20.6 percent from beyond the arc. He is now shooting 44.4 percent, 29.4 percent from beyond the arc.Following Wednesday’s victory, he talked about the last time he felt this good on the court.“I don’t know, high school, really,” he said. “It’s been back to confidence and that doesn’t just mean scoring; just be comfortable out there playing and having fun. I know what I need to do every night and I try and go in be aggressive.“And, again, I can’t credit our team (enough) right now — our chemistry of us trusting each other, our communication on both ends.”Costly mistakeThe Clippers had an advantage before Wednesday’s game when Portland inadvertently left starting shooting guard C.J. McCollum off the night’s active roster. McCollum, who is averaging 21 points per game, could therefore not play.Rivers, who likely would have guarded McCollum at times, was more than happy.“We’ll take it,” he said. “He’s a hell of a player.”UpcomingThe Clippers are off until Saturday, when they will host Charlotte at 12:30 p.m. at Staples Center. The Clippers will then host New Orleans at 12:30 Sunday.last_img read more
