Chris Paul’s disastrous Game 4 gets unique assessment from Suns coach Monty Williams
Knowing Paul since his time with the then-New Orleans Hornets, Williams and the rest of the Suns have full trust in CP3 that he can lead them to the promised land. In fact, Williams expressed his belief that the veteran guard’s 10-point, five-turnover display in Game 4 was only a “blip on the screen” and nothing more.
“There’s not a person in our locker room that’s not expecting him to come out and play well,” Williams said of Paul, per Gerald Bourquet of Fan Sided.
Chris Paul has taken responsibility for the Suns’ Game 4 loss, which allowed the Milwaukee Bucks to ties the series at 2-2. The 36-year-old playmaker made the biggest fumble of the contest when he turned the ball over with less than 35 seconds left and the Cream City squad leading by just two, 101-99.
The turnover led to Khris Middleton banking the and-1 to give the Bucks the lead for good.
Paul, for his part, acknowledged that he needs to do better in taking care of the ball for the Suns in Game 5. However, he is not crying over spilled milk.
“It’s something I don’t dwell on. Even though it may be an anomaly, it happens. I turned the ball over hella times before,” Paul said, per ESPN. “End of the day, we got to win the game. Me turning the ball over is not giving us enough shots at the basket. I’ll figure it out.”
Luckily for Paul, Monty Williams and the Suns have his back no matter what.
