Chris Paul and the Houston Rockets have a tough challenge in front of them in the form of the Golden State Warriors. If they are going to get past the Warriors and earn a slot in the NBA Finals, they are going to need Paul and James Harden to outplay Golden State’s superstars. At least in one play in Game 2 of the series, Paul did just that when he sent two-time league MVP Stephen Curry splashing into the floor with a sleek behind-the-back dribble that led to a sweet dish to a cutting PJ Tucker, who finished the sequence with a powerful slam.

This was not the first time that Chris Paul made Stephen Curry buckle like a three-legged table in the series. Back in Game 1, Paul dropped the Warriors guard with a sweet crossover that caused Curry to stumble into the ground.

It’s as though Paul is on a personal mission to get back at Curry as many times as possible in this series as a form of revenge for that famed Curry crossover on him that launched a thousand memes on social media three years ago when Paul was still with the L.A. Clippers.
Will Paul embarrass Curry again in Game 3?
