Chris Paul has had a chance to watch the tape, and the Clippers guard is not happy with himself.

He was averaging 23.5 points as the Clippers won the first two games in Los Angeles. Then the series shifted to Memphis, and the Grizzlies held him to eight points with only four assists and five turnovers in winning 94-82 on Thursday night to pull within 2-1 in this first-round series.

Paul said Friday after practice he has to be more aggressive Saturday in Game 4. He notes he didn't attempt a single free throw despite playing more than 30 minutes.

The Grizzlies are expecting the Clippers' guard to try to take control. Guard Tony Allen says they have a scheme to defend Paul that they have to stick.
