The All-Star selection is Paul's ninth consecutive and fifth with the Clippers.
After starting the 2015-2016 season with a series of nagging injuries including a broken finger, the now healthy Paul has been a force for the Clippers especially in Blake Griffin's absence. Since the start of the new year, the Clippers star is averaging 20.8 points, 11.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds in 12 games.
Paul was named the Western Conference Player of the Week in early January after a three-game span averaging 23.7 points, 12.3 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.3 steals
