Until last night, the L.A. Clippers had started the season like a house on fire with a record of 10-1.

They might have fallen to the Memphis Grizzlies and a late Marc Gasol three-pointer last night, but their hot start has got fans speculating that the Clippers may finally realise their potential and become real contenders.

Chris Paul has been as influential as anybody in the early going and the 31-year-old point guard looks more determined than ever.

Although he only managed nine points last night, he has been registering an average of 18.3 so far this season with 8.3 assists.

At a shootaround prior to last night's game with Memphis, CP3 told Dan Woike of the OC Register the secret behind his surge in form this term.

As a 36.8 percent career three-point shooter, Paul is connecting on 47.3 percent of his three-point attempts so far this season, easily a career-high.

He's also always been excellent at the free throw line, but his 91.4 percent mark this season is the best of his career, too.

Better eyesight seems to be making a difference for the Clipper guard - as one would expect it might for anybody - but how far can it carry them this season?
