Dominate buries former team early:

In the OKC Thunder’s second visit to Houston to take on CP3’s former team, there really is no way to describe his game other than extraordinary.

Paul came out in full attack mode on January 20th ready to score on anyone in his way. This mentality propelled him to record a huge 27 point first half. Yes, you are reading that right.

He couldn’t be stopped no matter who was guarding him. One highlight was late in the second quarter of the game when Paul stole the ball on an inbound pass from Rockets defensive master  PJ Tucker. He then dribbled to the corner going up for a beautiful step-back three-pointer.


It was Paul’s second steal of the game adding to his overall 28 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and a block.

Despite scoring only one point after his first-half run, Paul was tenacious and provided a spectacular display helping the Thunder escape with a 112-107.
