March 30 vs. Portland: Paul’s game-winning bucket on J.J. Hickson finished his 20-point, 14-assist night and ended a crazy game. He was 3-of-4 in the fourth and he continued going right through the lane, with not one attempt coming outside of 15 feet. Normally I would wonder why Raymond Felton wasn’t checking Paul in this moment but if you’ve followed Portland’s season you can tell why they were happier Hickson — who’d been on the roster all of five games — had the try.
April 11 vs. Oklahoma City: His layup with 8.8 left gave the Clippers the winning hoop in a 5-on-1 situation. Every Thunder defender had his eyes on Paul, and two of them, Kendrick Perkins and Thabo Sefolosha, are actively guarding Paul at the start. He darts by them and a helping Russell Westbrook for the score.
