Chris Paul just arrived at Staples Center, walking like a peg-legged pirate. Not a good sign for Clippers.— J.A. Adande (@jadande) May 20, 2012
Paul hasn't seemed like 100% throughout the series, especially after the physical beating he took in LA's seven-game win over the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round.
Tony Parker has largely outplayed Paul throughout, a matchup the Clippers had to win to have any chance of pulling off the upset over the rolling Spurs, who have barely been challenged as they've steamrolled through the first two rounds of the playoffs.
LA will certainly need more than 12 points on 5-for-17 shooting from Paul to avoid the sweep.
