It was hard to pick one key matchup to watch in the Spurs vs. Clippers first round matchup, there are so many good ones. Like the coming effort by Gregg Popovich to get in DeAndre Jordan’s head.

But if the Spurs are going to win Game 2 it has to start with the head of the Clippers’ snake — Chris Paul. CP3 put up 32 points and completely controlled the flow of the game in the series opener.

Expect to see a lot more Kawhi Leonard (and Danny Green) on Paul from the start, and a lot less Tony Parker.
