Pauls shooting touch has become a mystery, with his shooting percentage dropping to 26.2% in the past four games. I dont know why he cant shoot at all. But even if he cant throw, Pauls role in defense and organization is still very important, and his overall efficiency is still positive in the four consecutive wins.
Todays game is the same, Paul does not value his own score, but assists Gordon and Harden to score outside, he only shot three points in the first half, or did not enter. He rested until the end of the season and finally had output. He fouled with the ball and made two penalties. Then he raced up three points and snatched Walter in the last 5.9 seconds to help Knight hit back.
Paul scored 5 points and 3 assists in the first quarter, and started the second quarter with three points in a row with Green, leading the bench to open the score. Nine minutes and fourteen seconds, like Harden, he tried his hand on the outside and scored three points. The goal also led the Rockets by more than 10 points.
Its not easy for a former mid-thrower to incarnate a rocket into an external turret. Nine minutes and thirty seconds later, Paul interfered with Arizas fast break, then assisted Gordon to make another three points. In 8 minutes and 42 seconds, Paul held the ball singles Bryant, a playful breakthrough score, the opponent as a stake, let netizens sigh: I just witnessed a murder.
After Harden came on, it rained three points and ended the suspense. Paul clocked in seven minutes and 36 seconds, and it was a great victory.
