Let Chris Paul join your team to win, just like Friday’s surprising Phoenix Suns fourth quarter explosion.
It can also make the cake go away, such as defeating the Memphis Grizzlies 128-97 on Saturday.
In the past few weeks, as Paul has found his own elite players, the Suns will play a role to some extent almost every night. With the talent of Paul around Phoenix, following the leadership of the point guard will produce great achievements.
Last Saturday, this meant that the Grizzlies, who lacked manpower, would barely sniff the chance of winning.
Head coach Monty Williams (Monty Williams) praised his team̵
He said: “This kind of game will make you lose your rhythm.” “You can play this game when they have so many people out, and we didn’t do that tonight.
“I went into a suspended state, just to express my gratitude to the way we played in the fourth quarter, because at that time you could run around and make poor shots. I had to call the timeout to get us back where we needed to be, we are tonight No need to do this.”
Memphis head coach Taylor Jenkins (Taylor Jenkins) met with employees on Friday night after defeating the Detroit Pistons and tried to take any necessary precautions during the rotation. That’s because the Grizzlies against Phoenix on Saturday played the fourth game in five nights and the fifth game in seven nights.
Prior to this, Memphis was already dealing with some injuries and COVID-19-related absences, so for safety reasons, it had to sit some players with Phoenix. It was guard Grayson Allen, forward Kyle Anderson and big man Brandon Clark. Because the Grizzlies already lack starters Dillon Brooks (Dillon Brooks) and Jaren Jackson Jr. (Jaren Jackson Jr.), the number of rotations has decreased.
Connecting with God in the city is not a good idea.
Watching Paul seize control of the game, this is truly timeless. He started offensive from the first quarter, and since then he has been determined.
Paul shot all 13 goals in the first half. Overall, he has only 16 points and 6 assists, which proves his outstanding performance. He can use statistical lines to imply precise manipulation of opponents.
The Suns maintained a double-digit lead in 10 minutes, staying above 15 points for most of the second quarter, and things have gotten worse since.
The Suns performed well in defense of the Grizzlies. Memphis looked decent, but it never fell. Just as the Suns breeze in their defeat of the Orlando Magic in early February, it seems that the Grizzlies have not all appeared due to the lack of many people.
The Grizzlies missed 16 consecutive three-pointers to start the game.
By the time they tried No. 17, the Suns had risen by 25 with 41.4 seconds left in the first half.
The Phoenix cruises all the way. After the Suns saved from a jumper, the Grizzlies didn’t fight enough. In the second half, the Suns’ half-time advantage was only 31 points, and the second half dropped to 26 points.
Regardless of the shooting trend, this game will not cause fierce competition, but the Suns also created a team’s history of 24 three-pointers, which is of no avail.
In such an open game, some players can get rhythm scores. Devin Booker set a game-high 23 points, while Mikal Bridges, Cam Payne and Dario Saric Saric) contributed 19 points.
Memphis made 5 out of 33 three-pointers (15.2%). The Suns only had 35 assists and only 9 turnovers.
Sun audiences this season often think of Paul’s greatness. In addition to the influence in the last two victories, there is also the fact that he defeated Robertson at the Ascar on Saturday, becoming the highest assists ranking in history and rising to sixth.
Everyone on the sun does not take this for granted.
Williams said of Paul’s achievements: “For me, we won a big game, but I’m surprised that I can participate in it with him.” “When you think of the name Oscar Robertson, K The way Reese plays him is unrealistic…I just think it is amazing and blessed, and when he does this, I feel very honored and humble to be a member of this team.”
Booker made sure to get the ball for Paul, so the team could give him the ball, and Paul still insisted on a ball when talking to the media.
Booker said: “It’s hard to tell, being a game fan for so long, being a game fan for so long-it’s incredible to have him on the court with him now.”
“It really means everything,” he added to Paul. “This is just part of history, man-that’s Chris Paul. I say this every day. I call him by his first name and last name, because that’s how I grew up.”
Booker said, “There is no doubt” that Paul is just like him among the best basketball players because he has seen Paul’s daily work in the past few months.
This particular mentality was reflected when asked if he was trying to catch up with Magic Johnson (fifth place) in this season’s leaderboard.
“I’m trying to accumulate victory,” Paul said with a smile.
