One of the keys to these NBA Finals is being the poor performance of Chris
Paul. The Phoenix guard, one of the most confident and creative in the league with the ball in his hands, is performing below expectations in games against the Bucks.
Many have theorized that its performance is due to the injury he sustained to the ligaments of his right hand during the Conference Finals against the Clippers.
Paul wanted to silence these speculations on the return of the Finals to Phoenix: “I’m fine, there’s no more than that”. However, the numbers do not deceive and after some spectacular playoffs, Paul is curdling a rather poor title eliminator.
Is chaining more turnovers than ever, missing easy shots and even his passes seem far from level that he had shown during the year. Following his team’s defeat in Game 5, Paul admitted that he has to do better if they want to avoid the Bucks’ title.
It is true that the last quarter of the game this Saturday showed us the best version of Paul in the Finals but his performance until then had been very mediocre. The Bucks will try to close the series in front of their audience next Tuesday, unless CP3 can prevent it.
