Chris Paul is obviously really good at minimizing turnovers, but I think people are making too big of a deal of the zero turnovers thing. In game 2, the announcers were talking about him not having any turnovers during some particular stretch, and literally right then, someone poked the ball out away from him from behind, and it pinballed around between multiple players and bounced back to him in the paint, and he made one of his midrange shots. It was a total fluke that he got it back and it wasn't a turnover.
For a guy who handles the ball as much as he does, I'm not sure that zero turnovers on the regular is a good thing. Is he only making safe passes? Is he not willing to take chances because he doesn't want turnovers? It's all good as long as they're winning, but Denver has looked as soft as a marshmallow so far, and it will get tougher in future rounds.
Just an observation and speculation.
the lack of agressiveness is a common criticism to cp3 but i have always felt it more "feeling" that evidence based tbh when his portfolio of great offensive teams is so strong
cp3 teams always are great to elite in offense wherever he goes, this suns team included (top 5 this year i think) so i dont think results indicate a problem with his aproach
