Paul posted 27 points (9-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 13 assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 133-124 win over the Wizards. Paul was spectacular, scorching the Wizards for one of his more efficient double-doubles of the season. He now has 20 double-doubles and one triple-double here in 2016-17, and a matchup with the lowly Suns is scheduled for Thursday. For as long as the Clippers have a shot at stealing home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, Paul is a good bet to keep pumping out quality stats.
Paul scored 17 points (4-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding nine assists, four rebounds, a steal and a block in 31 minutes during Sunday's 98-97 loss to the Kings. The 31-year-old's production continues to lag behind his usual pace -- Paul's last double-double came five games ago, and he's scored more than 20 points just once in his last eight. After averaging more than 10 assists a game in each of the last three seasons, the point guard seems poised to fall well short in 2016-17 at 9.1 a night, but he's at least making up for it with a career-high 2.1 three-pointers a game.
Paul provided 15 points (6-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, six assists and three steals across 35 minutes per game during Thursday's 97-95 loss to the Mavericks. Despite having an impressive month of March -- averaging 18.1 points and 7.7 assists per game while hitting 49.7 percent of his shots from the field and 47.1 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc -- Paul has been relatively inconsistent. In 13 March games prior to Thursday, he had three games scoring in single digits and four games with less than six assists. That being said, owners in year-long formats are likely impacted significantly less by Paul's up-and-down month compared to those who take a chance on him in DFS.
Paul scored 27 points (9-15 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, four assists and a steal across 25 minutes in Tuesday's 133-109 win over the Lakers. Paul's stat line could have been much bigger but this game was essentially over at halftime, as the Clippers held a 30-point lead going into the third quarter. While the blowout did affect DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin's production, Paul was immune. It can be tempting to start players on a powerful team like the Clippers, but as the season winds down, coaches will rest their stars if they have the game well in hand. Of course, Paul is a must-start when he's playing, but in the final weeks you may see him resting--owners should monitor him for unexpected late scratches in the final weeks.
Paul provided five points (0-8 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven assists and four rebounds across 27 minutes during Saturday's 108-78 victory over the Cavaliers. With Kyrie Irving (rest/knee), LeBron James (rest) and Kevin Love (rest) all out for the Cavaliers, fantasy owners likely expected Paul to have a monster game, even if he played a sub-30-minute workload. Instead, Paul had one of his worst games of the season -- failing to knock down a field goal attempt, committing three turnovers with his seven assists, and failing to record a steal. That being said, Saturday's outing can likely be brushed off as an outlier considering Paul is averaging 19.0 points, 7.6 assists, and 1.4 steals across 32.2 minutes per game since the beginning of March.
