Chris Paul looked worthy of returning to Toronto in a few weeks, the Clippers point guard putting together another superlative effort that should help land him a spot as a reserve in the All-Star game.
The Clippers reserves didn't look worthy of a Development League showcase.
They were outscored, outhustled and outmuscled Sunday at Air Canada Centre, their many shortcomings resulting in the Clippers' 112-94 loss to the Toronto Raptors.
"It was the second unit," Coach Doc Rivers said during a 90-second postgame media session after Clippers reserves were outscored, 51-29, by their counterparts. "It's not that hard to explain this game."
