Chris Paul leads the way with 28 points as Thunder force Game 7

Chris Paul scored a team-high 28 points (10-20 FG, 3-6 3PT, 5-5 FT) with seven rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 40 minutes as the Thunder win 104-100 and force a Game 7.

Fantasy Impact:

Since the playoffs began, Paul has turned into much more of a scorer than a facilitator. In six games vs. the Rockets, he's now averaging 21.7 points and just 4.2 assists. He's become more of a scorer for Oklahoma City this season to begin with, averaging a career-low 6.7 assists per game on the season, but 4.2 assists per game in the playoffs shows you Paul is really shouldering more of the scoring load on offense. Paul was also a +20 in Game 6. He'll look to help his team get into the second round of the playoffs with a Game 7 win Wednesday night.
