Some players, in order to protect their shooting percentage, avoid launching end-of-quarter heaves.
Not Chris Paul.
Paul made a half-court shot to end the first half last night. Those three points proved to be the winning margin in the Thunder’s 100-97 win over the Warriors.
To get the victory, Paul had to contribute more in the clutch. Oklahoma City trailed by 10 late, but ended the game on a 13-0 run – including Paul making a 3-pointer and hitting the go-ahead jumper.
