Chris Paul totaled 21 points (9-15 FG, 3-3 3PT), two rebounds, eleven assists, and one block in the Suns’ 123-119 loss to the Bucks on Saturday.
Paul double-doubled in the Suns’ home loss against the Bucks, as he had 11.0 assists to go along with 21.0 points. After two games of underwhelming fantasy performances, he was able to bounce back. Even though this game resulted in a loss, Paul was able to break out of his slump, which in some ways could be seen as a better outcome for the Suns’ championship run than the instant gratification of a win, especially if the Suns win this Game Six. The thought of a revitalized Paul, an empowered Sun's squad after stealing Game Six, and the roars of a home crowd in a Game Seven sounds like a recipe for final's success. Tuesday's game could showcase an excellent effort from the future Hall-of-Famer.
