Chris Paul Drops 40 in Win vs the Kings, Loses Game of Dodegeball With DeMarcus Cousins
With a little more than 2 minutes left in regulation, a frustrated Boogie Cousins tried to save a ball from going out of bounds and take Chris Paul’s head off as a bonus. The Kings kept possession but the Clippers kept the lead and went on to win 117-107 behind a season-high 40 points (3 shy of a career-high), 13 assists and 8 rebounds from the not-so-great Dodgeball player, Chris Paul.
“Just play. Just play. Once they throw up the ball, everything else is out the window,” said Paul, who sat out practice earlier in the day with a couple of injuries. “I’ve had games like this before. They were leaving me open so I was shooting.”
Cousins also flirted with his 5th career-triple double with 26, 15 and 9.
