Chris Paul is 31 years old, but he’s still the Point God. The Los Angeles Clippers star still has handles, too, and New Orleans Pelicans big man Alexis Ajinca found that out the hard way on Saturday night.
With the ball in the middle of the floor and Ajinca guarding Paul on a mismatch after a screen, the Clippers guard went straight at the rim.
Paul gave a little stutter step, and Ajinca got a little too happy with his feet.
The result? Tangled legs for Ajinca, an easy 8-foot basket for Paul, and a damaged sense of pride for the New Orleans center.
