Chris Paul says he's 'getting better,' hopes to play against Warriors

Los Angeles Clippers superstar Chris Paul said his strained right groin is "definitely getting better" before Tuesday's practice, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Paul has missed the team's last two games because of the injury, which he sustained against the Golden State Warriors on Nov. 4. Paul said his goal was to participate in Tuesday's practice and then hopefully play in Thursday's game against the Warriors at Staples Center.

"I want to, no question," Paul told the media.

Paul, who is notably one of the most competitive players in the league, said he hated sitting out two consecutive games, but is trying to keep his ultimate goal -- to win a championship -- in perspective.

"It was very tough, but, like I said, you learn to look at the big picture," Paul said. "Obviously you need every game, but it's better to be ready in April, May, June than it is to be ready in November."
