Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns are one of the hottest teams in the league at the moment. They proved that once again by ending the New York Knicks run of nine-straight wins with a resounding victory on Tuesday night.
As both sides looked to win this, it was an intense affair. It was neck-and-neck right until the final minute of the game when CP3 showed his class and experience to separate the two sides. When his team needed him the most, Paul stepped up to deliver two invaluable shots that looked more like circus moves.
After doing so, Chris Paul was so pumped up that he started shouting at his teammate Devin Booker. The entire bench of the Suns joined into the celebrations as Paul looked to instigate the Knicks by saying, “The fu** wrong with these ni***s man!”

The Knicks had no answer for Paul’s brilliance as they succumbed to their first defeat in 10 games. This win will surely motivate the Suns in performing well in the postseason against bigger franchises.
Chris Paul finished the game with 20 points to his name. Moreover, he also racked up six assists and five rebounds for his side during the game. Apart from him, Devin Booker was back to his best as he scored 33 points and four rebounds in the match.
“Everybody was messing with the young guys before the game like, this ain’t just a regular game,” Paul said. “With the way that team’s playing over there, this was a fun game.”
The Phoenix Suns are second in the Western Conference standings. At the moment, they are well in contention for the playoffs. Stalwarts of the game like Chris Paul and Booker are hitting top gear at the most opportune time. Heading into the post-season, the Suns will be pleased with their position
