Devin Booker Calls Chris Paul's Fourth Quarter 'A Work Of Art' After Comeback Win 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Feb 20, 2021 6:29 pm

The Phoenix Suns turned an 11-point four quarter deficit into an 18-point win in their 132-114 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night.


It was the largest defeat in the shot-clock era for a team that entered the fourth quarter with a double-digit lead.


Devin Booker credited Chris Paul, who finished with 15 points and 19 assists, for the comeback.


"Man is orchestrating out there. He knows what's going on on the floor before it even happens. With him, the game is never out of reach ... In that fourth quarter, it's a work of art. The way he was picking apart their defense and making plays for others and at the same time scoring when he had to," said Booker.


Paul also finished plus-28 in the fourth quarter.


The Pelicans are now 12-9 in games in which they've had a double-digit lead, the most losses for a team when leading by double digits this season.

Get you a point guard smarter than Stan Van Gundy
You need 2-way wings, 2-way shooting bigs, and you can't allow low iq players on the court. Assist/turnover ratio is crucial. Shooting point guards are icing on the cake IF they are plus defenders.
Weaver & Casey, govern yourselves accordingly!

Agreed. Suns found the point guard they need but only for a few years. Hope they can run deep in the playoffs
