Default Paul sets new record...

breaking the Big O's 40 year old record...

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Chris Paul couldn't leave New Orleans' locker room Saturday night until he finished helping a friend with his tie.

Add another assist to the Hornets' point guard, who set an NBA record in leading New Orleans to a 100-89 victory over Miami on Saturday night.

Paul finished with 21 points and 13 assists for his sixth straight double-double of at least 20 points and 10 assists to open the season, surpassing the mark set by Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson in 1968.

''That is very historical for him to be able to pass a name like that that's a Hall of Famer,'' New Orleans coach Byron Scott said. ''If he stays healthy and keeps growing as a basketball player, obviously he'll be a Hall of Famer, too.''

Paul also had seven rebounds and four steals to help the Hornets (4-2) snap a two-game losing streak. Nevertheless, Paul wouldn't take complete credit for the record.

''This is a very unusual stat,'' Paul said. ''Assists only occur when your teammates do what they are supposed to be doing.'' ef=T1

I like seeing point guards who get a lot of assists. Points are good but everybody plays better when they get a couple of easy baskets.

Thumbs up Re: Paul sets new record...

Most people try to compare this guy to Jason Kidd, I think or should I say I know he is better than Jason Kidd. Jason Kidd can't score the points as CP3 can put up. Nothing against Jason, but Chris is the best thing that could ever happen to New Orleans
