If we were to go by current records, the Los Angeles Clippers have been the best team in the NBA so far this season. 

They are a league-best 13-2 and are among the top offensive and defensive teams. Only the Golden State Warriors have a better offence and they're behind only the Atlanta Hawks in terms of defence.

There are several reasons why the Clippers have shown a huge improvement from previous years, but chief among them is the form of their two All-Stars. 

Chris Paul and Blake Griffin have been playing some of their best basketball and after suffering season-ending injuries in the first round of the playoffs in the last campaign, they look healthy and more determined than ever. 

This is the sixth season that the point guard and power forward have played together in Los Angeles and CP3 has acknowledged that their chemistry on the floor is the best it's ever been.

Speaking to USA Today's Sam Amick, Paul said: "Oh, no question (it's) better now than ever. Like I'm saying, we both have matured so much, and our communication is amazing right now, so sometimes it takes time.

"That's what (happened) with me and BG, and there's nothing like it right now. We are having some of the most fun that we've had in our time together."

The Clippers' core unit of Paul, Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick have been together for four years now and that continuity is having a great effect for Doc Rivers' team. 

Unsurprisingly, there is skepticism about the franchise's chances of challenging for a championship, but there's no doubt this represents their best opportunity and some in L.A. are daring to believe.
