After a surprising Game 1 win, it feels like the Clippers are playing with house money. Los Angeles earned at least a split on the road to start its second round series against Houston; the Clippers showed the toughness from the Spurs series that the Rockets were unprepared for (the Clippers are not the Mavericks).
So should Doc Rivers sit Chris Paul in Game 2? Should he give CP3’s strained hamstring more time to heal, as those are tricky injuries that can be easy to aggravate?
That’s what Jenna Corrado and I discuss in this latest PBT Extra. Personally, if he’s not 100 percent I would rest him again — make the Rockets prove they can stop the offense going through Blake Griffin first.
More than 24 hours before the game, CP3’s status remains a coin flip.
