Over the course of the night, Chris Paul got much the better of this matchup on his way to 22 points and 15 assists. Kemba Walker could not contain him.
But on this play, it was Kemba who crossed up CP3.
Well, sort of. Paul trips because he steps on DeAndre Jordan’s foot, opening up the shot for Walker. This is more on DeAndre than CP3.
Walker finished with 15 points on 4-of-11 shooting. When his crossover works he looks brilliant, but he doesn’t have much of a bag of tricks beyond that and he isn’t kicking out on drives like he should. Paul has a massive bag of tricks and didn’t need to break them all out to get the Clippers a comfortable and needed win.
