Chris Paul has a career night in GM1 vs OKC: 32pts, 10asts, 80+% fg in 28 mins
Chris Paul celebrated his birthday a day early by playing an almost flawless game in the Clippers 122-105 victory over the Thunder in Game 1.
CP3 scored 32 points on 12 of 14 shooting which included 8 of 9 from downtown to go with his 10 assists…in just 28 minutes. Those apples were good enough for him to join Jordan as the only players to ever rack up 30 & 10 while shooting 80+%.
“I thought on a lot of those 3s, especially early in the game, we had a hand in his face and a hand in his shots,” Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha said. “So we did a decent job, but those shots went in and that boosted their whole team.”
“When somebody’s got it going like that, you just try to stay out of the way as much as possible, but also help keep that fire going,” Clippers forward Blake Griffin said.
