Chris Paul Likes To Steal
Apparently, Jane’s Addiction was singing about Chris Paul; although, CP3 has never technically been caught. Not once. Not even when he was five. It is safe to say, however, Paul enjoys stealing, especially on the basketball court. It doesn’t hurt when it sets an NBA record either. When Paul deflected a pass from Tony Parker and then corralled said deflection, he collected not only the steal, but the record of 106-straight games with a defensive theft.
Paul’s productive evening didn’t end there, either. Besides setting records, Paul led his Hornets to victory over the Spurs with this gaudy stat line: 19 points, 12 assists, 6 rebounds, 3 steals and 1 block. Don’t forget about that crucial jump ball he won from Manu Ginobili as well. It’s safe to say Paul had a productive Wednesday night.
It should also be noted CP3 is leading the league in assists and steals, averaging almost 12 and 3, respectively. Not only does Paul giveth, he taketh away just as effectively.
