L.A. Clippers All-Star point guard Chris Paul took no prisoners during his fourth game of preseason, giving Damian Lillard the business with a ruthless behind-the-back crossover that left him out of the picture during Thursday's 109-108 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.
While Paul might have gotten a bit of an assist from budding mate Blake Griffin who intended to set a pick, the change of direction was phenomenal, creating instant separation between himself and Lillard, who both stand at 6-feet tall. Take a look.
Paul finished with 10 points, 10 assists, and three steals in 23 minutes of action in a game that ended up being too close for comfort, but was ultimately iced by a Jamal Crawford contested jumper to beat the buzzer.
It seems like Paul, an 11-year veteran of this league still has all the moves and plenty of pep to his step to go toe-to-toe with today's basketball sensations.
The Clippers will visit the Blazers for their season-opener on Thursday, Oct. 27, game which will air on TNT.
