Untouchable against the Nuggets and qualified for the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 2010, the Suns put in a show of strength against Denver, unable to meet the challenge presented by Chris Paul’s Cactus. Quite simply at the top of his game despite his 36 brushes, Chris Paul who just launched one of the best streaks of his career. We had to go back to it.
We remember this photo from the first game of the first round of the playoffs between the Suns and the Lakers. Chris Paul, holding his shoulder to the floor. We said to ourselves, ‘No, not that, not him, not after the great regular season that The Sun had.’ We obviously freaked out at first and even then, once back on the field, it was painful to see CP3 play with one arm missing, far from his best. Everything seems to be a thing of the past now. Because the Chris Paul we just saw during the series vs Nuggets is one of the best versions of his entire career It means a lot when you know the genius of a man. Under his leadership, the Suns truly outperformed the Nuggets to reach the Western Conference Finals after finishing second in the regular season, just an extraordinary run for a series that hasn’t tasted playoffs since 2010. It’s the Point God effect. After a necessarily complicated streak against the Lakers due to his sores, CP3 regained all his feelings and the Nuggets couldn’t do anything about: Averaged 25.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 10.3 assists, 1.5 steals, and only 1.3 in runs, all in moonshot proportions. (61.8% success, 58.3% parking lot, 100% free throws). It is often said that perfection does not exist in this world, but Chris Paul comes very close.
“A couple of years ago, I was erased from the map, they said I couldn’t do it anymore.”
So yeah, even if we liked the Grinta Facundo Campazzo, there wasn’t a backcourt for the corresponding century and back from Will Barton’s injury was a bit weak hoping to slow Chris Paul, 37 point author (14/19 in shooting, 9/9 in free throws) last night to wrap up the series with a good old family sweep.. But today it is impossible not to appreciate the extraordinary level of this maestro of the game, who has just joined Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the very closed circle of players who finished a playoff with at least 35 pawns at 36 or more. The legendary Ischia Thomas has also been surpassed in his passing postseason (No. 13 with 989 assists according to Basketball reference), CP3 achieved total Nuggets in scoring and making games. The mixed streak made in the third quarter yesterday was particularly epic, with a mid-range streak that left Nuggets fans tired of basketball. Earlier in the series, in Game Two, CriCri’s performance also dropped at 17 points, 15 caviar for… zero ball loss., the kind of feat you see once every ten years at PO. Simply great art. And just for the record, know that only two other players aged 36 or older (Steve Nash and John Stockton) were able to exit a playoff on 20 points and 10 assists that CB3 was able to do in the first game of the series against Denver. When we see that his average against the Nuggets was finally 25-10, we realize how huge he is now. Full control of the game is always there step up When a limited Denver team had to be pushed, Chris Paul looks like this Daron teaches his kids basketball based on basics, basketball intelligence and drive, all with that touch of genius that makes the difference between very good players and entertainers.
After moving from the Rockets, Chris Paul finally looked and had one of the worst contracts in the NBA. Today, the limit gives the impression that it is in it president By playing basketball purely dreams the maestro is. On the verge of playing in the finals of his second career, Point God this time wants to get a taste of the NBA Finals and seeks his first buck that will take him to a new dimension. Throughout his career, a man’s greatness has sometimes been called into question due to some qualifying failures, and this is an opportunity for CP3 to leave these episodes behind for good.
