Chris Paul: It all starts with defensive pressure, which leads to offensive efficiency

Guard Chris Paul on Wednesday was asked if his team can come up with another gem like the one it produced Monday in a 138-98 victory over the Golden State Warriors that evened their best-of-seven Western Conference playoff series.

“We hope so,” said Paul, who is nursing a sore right hamstring. “Everything starts with our defense and we defended pretty well to start that game. It’s one of those things where when you’re playing defense, you try to put pressure on them offensively, too.”

The Clippers, who play Thursday at Golden State in Game 3, certainly did that Monday.
