Coach Doc Rivers says Paul might play a few more minutes Sunday because he was feeling better a day after the Clippers won 124-99 to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference semifinals.
Paul had 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting and seven assists in 23 minutes Friday. He missed 4 of 6 3-pointers and never got fouled.
The Clippers plan to continue monitoring Paul closely because Rivers says he doesn't think hamstring injuries completely heal until the offseason.
Paul says the injury is a tricky one but he knows how to manage it.
