Austin Rivers now has two career playoff starts to his name, filling in for the injured Chris Paul for (at least) the first two games of Los Angeles Clippers' second-round series with the Houston Rockets.

And coach Doc Rivers' son has gotten a lot out of it—invaluable experience, probably a bigger contract next season, even a new signature move:

If Rivers' ill skills from Game 2 look at all familiar, you must have watched Game 1 as well:

Paul will reportedly test his hurt hamstring on Thursday to see if he'll be able to go in Game 3 on Friday.

Keep those fingers crossed, Clippers fans and Austin Rivers' psyche.
