In fact, Pauls positive and negative value today is not bright or even a bit hot eyes: - 3, but his value to the Rockets is not specific points or assists can be explained, but he can ease Hardens holding pressure, let the big showman rest off the scene.
Before the injury, Paul also grabbed the scoring assists, withstood the heats counter-attack during Hardens absence, did not let the score difference further approach, which also gave Harden breathing time, after all, yesterday had just fought a vicious battle, physical strength is easy to overwhelm.
If a game is just a case in point, the teams performance in Pauls absence always tells us something. During his absence, the Rocketsperformance was 0-5. Maybe Paul is not worth 40 million yearly salary, but if he combs the offense on the court, the Rockets dont have to rely on Harden to support them. Even when he plays the second half, Dengo, who is full of strength, is not as inefficient as today.
