Chris Paul recorded 20 points and 19 assists in the Suns’ win over the Spurs, making him the 5th player in history to record 100 15-assists games.
Chris Paul is widely considered as one of the greatest passing guards in league history. Ever since the 6-footer Paul set foot on the NBA hardwood as a young 20-year-old, he instantly established himself as a premier playmaker, setting up and finding his teammates.
Dishing out over 9 assists per game during the span of his career, CP3 is one of the rare players who manages to make his teammates around him better. Even in his 17th season, the “Point God” doesn’t seem to slow down. In fact, some would say the pass-first PG is aging like fine wine.
The 11-time All-Star displayed his incredible basketball IQ during the Suns-Spurs matchup. Chris was absolutely clinical in the 115-110 win, dropping 20 points and dishing out 19 assists, grabbing 8 rebounds, finishing the game with only 2 turnovers and an efficient +/- of +14.
Recording his 100th 15-assist game, Paul is now only the 5th player to do so, joining the likes of John Stockton (293!), Magic Johnson (180), Steve Nash (110), and Oscar Robertson (106).

In all seriousness, if you told me Chris Paul was going to have his three most successful seasons in the league following the Clippers tenure, I would’ve thought you were nuts.

If he’s not an All-Star reserve, there needs to be an investigation.
