Chris Paul says he will play in Game Three on Thursday despite dealing with a hamstring injury.

If the Clippers want to be advance to the next round, they are going to need their floor general on the court, and Paul knows that. He was limited to just 27 minutes in Game 2, but that was a result of an extremely lopsided contest. Unless this game gets out of control as well, expect him to receive well over 30 minutes on Thursday in an effort to break the series tie in favor of the Clippers.ANALYST: Matthew Beck Mobile App
