Chris Paul owned Game 1.
He’s the best in the business at finding and exploiting mismatches, and when he realized the Thunder were switching the pick-and-roll and leaving a big on him, he knew he had the mismatch. So he went at it, and couldn’t miss, hitting his first eight three point attempts. Paul had 17 first quarter points and the Clippers had pulled away never to look back.
I know normally when we think Clippers’ highlight we think Blake Griffin dunking, but this was CP3’s night.
Oh, what the heck, here’s Griffin dunking on the Thunder, too.
