CP3 brings back memories in New Orleans

Chris Paul's 13 assists in the Clippers' win over the Pelicans gave him 107 career double-digit assist games at the Smoothie King Center. Greivis Vasquez and Tyreke Evans are tied for the next most with 20 -- more than five times less than Paul. (Elias Sports Bureau)

Can you say de ja vu?

For the second straight year on December 3rd, UCLA defeats a No. 1 ranked Kentucky. UCLA now has 12 wins against the AP No. 1 team, the second-most in the AP Poll era (since 1949).

The Lakers and the terrible, horrible, no-good game

Friday night was only the second time since 1970-71 that the Lakers made less than 35 percent of their field-goal attempts, fewer than 60 percent of its free-throw attempts and committed 15 or more turnovers, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

UCLA has just one turnover since the 10:50 mark of the first half. Bruins have outscored Kentucky by 18 points during that stretch.

T.J. Leaf told me he knows people think he is soft. Showing some toughness today.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

I think Steve Alford has to be confident knowing he's up 4 at halftime on the road against the No. 1 team and his star PG hasn't played well.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Most NBA guys have De'Aaron Fox listed fourth or even fifth on board of top point guards. Fox has been sensational thus far -- and it'll be interesting to see if he moves up in eyes of executives. Right now most agree top 3 are some combo of Markelle Fultz (Washington), Dennis Smith (NC State) and Lonzo Ball (UCLA). French point guard Frank Ntilikina also in mix for possible lottery pick.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Aaron Holiday started every game last season and has come off bench this season with addition of Lonzo Ball. He's been UCLA's best player in first half - and has thrived in new role. Told me last week he doesn't care about coming off bench, just wants to do what's best for the team.

UCLA's TJ Leaf entered this game shooting 73 percent inside the arc. He has seven rebounds and two assists to go along with his six points (3-for-4). Was overlooked with the Lonzo Ball-De'Aaron Fox buzz. Could end the night as the most significant player on the court for the Bruins.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Lonzo Ball hasn't made a shot, has turned it over 4 times already and hasn't guarded anyone. But UCLA only down 3 with 7:33 left in first half.

Eamonn Brennan ESPN Staff Writer 

In addition to his offensive gifts (which are considerable, and already readily evident), Lonzo Ball has the tools to be a really, really good defender ... one day. Today? It's a bit of a mess.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Malik Monk is a great defensive presence for Kentucky right now. Doing a great job of playing the passing lanes. On the turnover he just forced, he didn't even see the pass but he had his hands up and deflected it. So active. All from a guy who admits he didn't play a lot of defense in high school because he didn't have to.
