VIDEO: Suns’ Chris Paul whips out nutmeg in absolute clinic against Rockets youngsters

Chris Paul, Jalen Green, Kevin Porter, Suns

Phoenix Suns superstar Chris Paul just doubled down on his ‘Point God‘ nickname and took the entire Houston Rockets squad to school. The 11-time All-Star was deep in his bag on Sunday night as he once again proved that he’s one of the craftiest court generals in the league today.

First off, the Suns point guard schooled Spanish youngster Usman Garuba with one of the slickest nutmegs you’ll ever see. Paul was sizing up the rookie the entire time and waited for the perfect opportunity to trick Garuba en route to a patented mid-range jumper.

I can watch this over and over again (via House of Highlights):

And, CP3 wasn’t done yet. Paul went on to teach these young Rockets a few more lessons. This time, it was on the defensive end as the 9-time All-Defensive Team member put on the clamps on a few more Houston youngsters (via NBA Central):


First, it was Kevin Porter Jr. who tried to go past Paul with a dazzling dribbling display. Unfortunately for Porter, CP can do all these moves with his eyes closed so it was pretty easy for him to tap the ball away from the 21-year-old. After that, Paul kept his foot on the gas and stayed locked in defensively. With the Rockets retaining possession on the same play, the Suns star kept at it and poked the ball away again, this time against this year’s second overall pick Jalen Green.

Back to school, boys. Principal Chris Paul is in the building.
