NBA Playoffs — Chris Paul did it again. The “Point God” delivered when the Los Angels Clippers needed him most, sinking a tough game-winner against the Memphis Grizzlies.
After Marc Gasol tied the game on the other end, the Clippers inbounded the ball with 13.9 seconds remaining. With just over 6 seconds on the time clock, the ball found itself in the hands of CP3. He had one of the best perimeter defenders in the NBA on him, and getting a high-quality look over Tony Allen would be no walk in the park.
Allen was all over Paul, who eventually created just enough separation to get a tough floater up in the air. He banked in the shot and Staples Center exploded.
Thanks to Paul’s late-game heroics, the Clippers will now go to Memphis with a 2-0 advantage, having defended home court.
