Clippers’ Chris Paul on the rebound

Chris Paul suffered through a night of “history” against San Antonio when he had only four points and three assists in 27 minutes. It’s only the third time in his career he’s had such low numbers.
The most recent time was Feb. 8, when he had three points and two assists against Miami. He bounced back the next game with 25 points, seven assists, four steals and only one turnover against New York.
“I like when he starts off aggressive,” Del Negro said. “I like when he’s in attack mode early and trying to score the ball. But he has to feel comfortable doing that. Now with Chauncey (Billups) back we have another threat out there, so that could take some pressure off everybody.
“He’s a pass-first guy, he’s a set-up guy, but we have to let him go and he has no problem with that at times. When he does that he gives us a another dimension out there which opens everything up.”
In the first quarter alone Saturday against Utah, Paul had three points, three assists, four rebounds and no turnovers.
