--Chris Paul is one of the NBA's best guards, and with the playoffs on the horizon, Paul's taken his game to another level. While his assist, rebound and steal numbers are postseason-esque, Paul's struggled to make shots.
"We just have to play better, especially me," Paul said. "All those shots in the lane, lay-ups and stuff like that-I have to make those."
Against the Grizzlies, Paul was just 7-for-17 from the field.
In five of his last eight games, Paul's shot under 45 percent from the field.
"I couldn't make a shot, couldn't throw a rock in the ocean," Paul said. We had a lot of easy ones tonight that we just couldn't convert."
--Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro tightened his rotation against Memphis on Monday night. Reggie Evans and Bobby Simmons, two regular members of the second unit, didn't play.
