Chris Paul scoffs at notion that Clippers players don’t like each other

first_imgWith all the heat the second unit has taken this season, Rivers was stoked to see three of his reserves score in double figures New Years Eve. Jamal Crawford scored 13 points on 4 of 10 shooting, Jordan Farmar had 11 points on 3 of 5 from the field and Spencer Hawes scored 10 on 4 of 7.Farmar made 3 of 5 from 3-point range and Hawes was 2 of 3 from beyond the arc; Crawford was 2 of 7.“I hope so, that would be nice,” Rivers said, when asked about getting more of the same moving forward. “Jamal is the dominant scorer in that group, he is. But it would be nice to have more people involved as well. We have to do that.”Clippers have two terrific passersPaul scored only five points but had eight assists New Years Eve. He averages 9.4 assists, fourth-best in the league. But Blake Griffin is also a heck of a passer, and he doled out 11 assists in the victory. It’s quite a luxury to have both of these guys on the same team, Rivers said.“When you have Chris Paul, who is probably the best passer in the league, then you have Blake, who I believe is the best passing big-man in the league, and they are passing the ball around, we are very good on offense,” Rivers said.Scouting the 76ersPhiladelphia, which is slated to play Friday at Phoenix, began the season 0-17 and did not get its first victory until it defeated Minnesota 85-77 on Dec. 3 on the road. The 76ers have since won at Detroit, at Orlando and at Miami, meaning all of their victories have come away from home.Shooting guard Tony Wroten leads the 76ers with a 16.4 scoring average; he also doles out 5.3 assists per game. Point guard Michael Carter-Williams averages 15.1 points and 7.3 assists and power forward Nerlens Noel averages a team-best 7.1 rebounds. Prior to tip-off against the Knicks, both coach Doc Rivers and post DeAndre Jordan said that as far as they are concerned, that is absolutely false. Paul backed their play.“I didn’t see that report, I didn’t know what you were about to say,” Paul said to the inquiring reporter. “I mean, you see us in the locker room, so you know.”The reporter told Paul he was surprised to hear of the alleged discord. Paul was, too.“Yeah, we’re fine,” Paul said.Solid bench play Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul spent some time talking about his team following its 99-78 victory over the lowly New York Knicks (5-29) on New Year’s Eve at Staples Center.One reporter asked Paul what he has learned about this team, which is now 22-11 and in sixth-place in the Western Conference standings, 4 1/2 games behind frontrunning Golden State (25-5).“Man, that we’re still one of those teams that control their own destiny,” said Paul, whose team next plays host to the even lower Philadelphia 76ers (4-26) on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.. “You know, a lot of teams go into games hoping that they can win and things like that. But we really control our own destiny in that if we play the way that we are capable of, we can win every night.”Then Paul was asked to touch on a news item that was surprising to many reporters who cover the Clippers on a regular basis. David Aldridge wrote on NBA.com this week that a Clippers insider told him that the Clippers players don’t like one another.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
