Having Chris Paul on your team automatically makes it better. Surprisingly, Paul only played in about 32 minutes per game this season, and no Clipper was in the top 20 for minutes per game.
The Clippers’ bench was second in the league in minutes played. That is hardly surprising considering the bench consisted of Jamal Crawford, Eric Bledsoe, Matt Barnes, Grant Hill, Lamar Odom and Ronny Turiaf. A few of those players could probably start on some teams in the NBA.
