Paul’s strong finish helps Hornets beat Knicks 100-88
New Orleans’ latest victory left everybody talking about Chris Paul—except Paul himself. He seemed more in awe of Tyson Chandler.
Paul scored 27 points and had a hand in three clutch baskets in the final minutes, leading the Hornets to a 100-88 victory over the New York Knicks on Monday night.
Paul made two of those buckets himself and found Chandler for an alley-oop dunk on the other, part of the Hornets’ 10-0 run to close the game.
“Tyson is one of the most athletic centers in the league,” Paul said. “Nate Robinson was talking to me out there on the court and he was like, ‘Wish I had a big guy who could go up to the rim like that.’ It’s amazing how much him doing that has changed my game. I take it for granted that when he’s not in the game with me, it’s like ‘What am I going to do?”’
Maybe just win it by himself. It looked as if he could have while speeding by the Knicks for 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting in the second half.
