Chris Paul barely misses in Game 1 vs OKCPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Los Angeles Times on Clippers point guard CP3 and the great things he did last night:
Tired from a grueling seven-game first-round playoff series?
Not Chris Paul and the Clippers.
Exhausted from the dark cloud that enveloped them at every turn?
Not Paul and the Clippers.
Paul orchestrated an impressive show of force Monday night that carried the Clippers to 122-105 demolition of the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1 of a Western Conference second-round playoff series.
His 32 points in only 27 minutes 44 seconds propelled the Clippers to a resounding win in the opener of the best-of-seven series at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Even more impressive was his shooting. Paul made his first eight three-point attempts and finished eight for nine, and hit 12 for 14 shots overall as the Clippers snatched the home-court advantage away from the Thunder.
