Chris Paul (hamstring) is not expected to practice on Wednesday because of his injured hamstring but it won't affect his status for Game 3 on Thursday.

If he does practice, coach Doc Rivers said CP3 would not take contact. He's been dealing with his hamstring for much of this series, but it hasn't shown on the court. Paul has created 22.5 points per game off his assists while also scoring 14.5 on his own in 35.5 minutes per game, and he'll continue running the offense. The Warriors will have their hands full on Thursday at home after the Clippers crushed them by 40 on Monday.
Head coach Frank Vogel said on Wednesday that he will continue to play George Hill and C.J. Watson together.

With the way C.J. Watson has performed this postseason, Frank Vogel said to expect "a lot more" two point guard lineups. Watson is not scoring at huge rate, but his accuracy from beyond the arc, 4-of-6 this series, spaces the floor well and creates driving lanes for George Hill. Hill had his best game of the series in Tuesday's win, scoring 15 points in 33 minutes. With Vogel committed to a two point guard look, Evan Turner and Lance Stephenson may see a decrease in minutes.
Nicolas Batum led the NBA in distance traveled this season at 216 miles.
He had an avulsion fracture on his finger back in January and was still able to play in all 82 games. Batum and the rest of the Blazers starting five played a whopping 1,373 minutes together this season, which ranked second in the NBA behind the Pacers' starting unit. The Frenchman ranked third among small forwards in assists per game this season while also ranking 18th in effective field goal percentage. He's a fantasy stud and probably doesn't get enough credit for the Blazers' success this season.
