Chris Paul PG LAC Jan 05 '79
Chris Paul played through his balky knee and went off, hitting 12-of-15 shots for 33 points, six rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers as the Clippers lost a heartbreaker in overtime in Dallas.
He committed seven turnovers, but the fact he played so well as a game-time decision says a lot. The Clippers still have three games left this week and owners have to hope Paul's knee is feeling good when he wakes up in the morning. The fact he played at all and played so well has to be frustrating, as he could have gotten some much needed rest and the Clippers would have had the same result - a loss.
