VIDEO: Thunder guard Chris Paul hits back at referee official after delay of the game call on OKC

Chris Paul, Thunder, Blazers

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul is not shy about pointing out an opposing team’s violation during a game. However, it seems that he doesn’t like it when he’s the one getting called for it.

The Thunder were whistled for a delay of game infraction during the second quarter of their game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. Paul was clearly not happy with the decision and lashed out at the official, claiming that the ref is “trying to prove a point.”

It was the team’s second delay of the game call, resulting to free throws for the Blazers.

It is worth noting that CP3 called the attention of game officials in their showdown with the Minnesota Timberwolves a couple of days ago because he saw that Jordan Bell’s jersey was untucked. It resulted in a technical foul against the Wolves, which allowed the Thunder to tie the game in regulation.

OKC then beat the Timberwolves 139-127 in OT.

Fortunately for Paul, it wasn’t something that made a significant impact on the outcome of the game, as OKC came away with a 108-96 win against the Blazers.
