I guess it’s safe to say that Paul was extra inspired in Game 4 with his family in the building. The Point God had another exceptional game against Denver and led the way with 37 huge points alongside seven assists with just two turnovers.
Paul played an incredible four-game series against the Nuggets. In 144 game minutes, the 11-time All-Star had a total of 41 assists while turning the ball over just a handful of times. He also averaged 25.5 points per game in the series. Not bad for a 36-year-old who people had counted out a few seasons ago, huh?
The veteran’s arrival in The Dessert has been nothing but huge for the franchise. With a young squad behind him with the likes of Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton, Paul is spearheading the attack and is making sure that this Suns team doesn’t go unnoticed. Phoenix is now just four wins away from making it back to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1993.
