Suns’ Chris Paul channels Joel Embiid with full-court heave to Devin Booker
Remember how Joel Embiid nearly sank Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns with a ridiculous 80-foot heave on Wednesday? Well, it looks like CP3 remembers that quite well, as Devin Booker could tell you. Paul made his best JoJo impression against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden.
But instead of attempting an incredibly long-range bomb for the Suns, Paul did what he does best: locate his wide-open teammates with pinpoint accuracy.
The 11-time All-Star looked like an NFL quarterback in this sequence, as he threw a long one to Suns teammate Devin Booker on the fast break. Book did the rest, making sure the highlight pass did not go to waste with an easy lay-in.
Check out the amazing synergy between the Suns’ All-Star backcourt dynamos.

Chris Paul truly deserves the title of “point god”. In the last seven games for Phoenix prior to the game versus the Celtics, the 35-year-old playmaker has recorded a total of 67 assists on just three turnovers. He’s been averaging 9.6 dimes during that stretch and has led the Suns to a 6-1 record.

The four-time All-NBA First Team member will likely go down as one of the best floor generals the game has ever seen. For instance, Booker’s life has been so much easier with CP3 setting the table for him every night for Phoenix.
