    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Chris Paul overcame a slow start, scoring 22 of his 26 points during the second half, adding six rebounds, three assists and three steals in 37 minutes on Monday as the Thunder rounded out another impressive victory to level the series against the Rockets.

    Paul provided his usual calming influence on the Thunder, nailing his mid-range game as the Thunder once again best the Rockets at their own game. All three guards have stepped up for the Thunder, especially over the past two games, and the Rockets will have to make a few adjustments of their own moving forward.
