Chris Paul Puts On A Show As The West Top The East.
Chris Paul takes home MVP honors as he lead the Western Conference to another win over the East.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Put to rest any rumors that CP3’s injury was going to impact his game.
Chris Paul took home MVP honors with 20 points and 15 assists as he lead the West over the East last Sunday at the NBA All Star game.
“You just want to play fast. I like to throw the lob. I like to see guys hit 3s,” Paul said. “When we’re out on the court with all that firepower, why wouldn’t you want to make passes? You’ve got KD filling one of the lanes, you’ve got Blake, Kobe on the wing. There’s nothing like it.
In the end it turned into the Kobe vs. LeBron show and Kobe came out on top blocking King James twice in the final moments of the game to ensure a Western Conference win.
“It was all in good spirit, man. It was just two guys that love to compete, love to go at it. So I had a lot of fun,” said James, who at 28 has plenty of time to catch up to Jordan and Bryant when it comes to NBA championships.”I think we played really good defense at the end of the game as a team,” Durant said. “
Note, Durant went for 30 points of his own on Sunday. This only adds to the generally accepted view the Durant is the most unstoppable scorer in the game today.
Kobe was really going with the ball. It’s tough to stop LeBron, but he did his best. He was able to block a few of his shots. But CP did a really good job of keeping us in the game.”
