Chris Paul led the Rockets in scoring with 27 points on 13-of-23 shooting with a 3-pointer, 12 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in Sunday's Game 4 win over the Jazz.
Paul was surgical in all of the mismatches that he was presented with and was yo-yo dribbling all over the Jazz defenders tonight. On a night where James Harden struggled to take care of the ball, Paul was able to get to his comfort zone in the mid-range and drain enough jumpers to keep the Jazz at bay and draw Rudy Gobert out further than he would have liked. Tonight were a prime example of why the Rockets needed Chris Paul, his mid-range is lethal and it opens up another dimension for a Rockets team that lacks diversity with shot selection. Paul is one game away from his first trip to the conference finals, but he's been in this position before.
