Chris Paul with a straight face says he didn’t even notice Scott Foster as the official tonight.
Trying to minimize distractions and knows that is going to continue being something talked about. – 1:10 AM

Chris Paul on getting a win in a Scott Foster game:
“I ain’t even notice.” – 1:09 AM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Chris Paul didn’t attempt a single free throw in the game that ended his 13-game playoff losing streak to Scott Foster. He took 14 shots.
This streak couldn’t have ended any other way. – 12:41 AM
Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Was the Chris Paul streak 13 or 14 games with Scott Foster? – 12:36 AM

Chris Paul’s 13-game playoff losing streak against Scott Foster is officially over. For the first time since 2013, Paul has won a playoff game officiated by his nemesis. – 12:33 AM

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
not sure when it happened exactly but this went from being a bad CP game to an awesome one. – 12:27 AM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Chris Paul worked that right hand a little bit after the deflection of the ball. Started dribbling with it.
Hits jumper. Stares into crowd. Gives Durant 5.
Timeout #Clippers. Suns up 121-109 with 2 minutes left in game.

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Chris Paul heard you. – 12:25 AM
J. Michael Falgoust @ThisIsJMichael
NBA needs to make up its mind when using past history to explain punishment. I’m fine w/it. Yet that principle not applied when CP3 superkicked Alvarez in the junk last yr’s playoffs. No penalty. Ample history of attacking opponents’ “crotch-al regions,” as Ron Burgundy might say – 12:22 AM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
Felt to me like the balance of the offense was off for the Suns in the fourth quarter in Game 1. Lot of Chris Paul versus KD/Booker being the primary initiators. Big part of the second half success for me has been the use of those two in a more primary role. – 12:10 AM
Michael Pina @MichaelVPina
there were so many games this year where you knew in the first 5 minutes if chris paul had it or not. thought tonight was going to be one of them, but those last two shots were big – 12:00 AM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Suns up 11. If they hold on, I want Chris Paul and Scott Foster to exchange jerseys afterward. – 11:59 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Chris Paul is 5-of-6 since his 1-of-5 start. Him getting it going has been a nice boost in the second half – 11:58 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
When the Suns were grinding through being all out of sorts in the Pelicans series last year and it was tied 2-2, Mikal Bridges had his best performance in purple and orange ever. CP3 followed it up in Game 6.
Phoenix needs that type of half from someone. Who will it be? – 11:07 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Devin Booker’s 3 just erased a 13-point Clippers lead and ties game at 59 at halftime.
23-10 Phoenix run in last 5:32 of 1st half. That’s just powerful offense, and that’s reflected in 57.1% FGs Suns are shooting.
Russell Westbrook: game-high 17 points
KD/CP3/Ayton: 41 points – 11:06 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Wow. Kawhi Leonard showed emotion after making a jumper over Chris Paul and being upset there wasn’t a foul call. – 11:04 PM
Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob
Bones Hyland pulled a rip through on CP? Oh this might be a wrap – 10:52 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Bones just CP3’d CP3 – 10:51 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ivica Zubac shot a dead ball 3 after a Chris Paul foul — and he made it 👁️ – 10:51 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers lead Suns 42-32 with 7:20 left in 1st half.
The Westbrook bench has come in and pushed the lead to double digits for the first time with Kawhi Leonard resting, and CP3/Durant/Ayton all on the floor.
T Mann outscoring Suns bench 8-5 by himself.
The depth is depthing. – 10:47 PM
Michael Pina @MichaelVPina
chris paul is getting absolutely worked – 10:46 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Chris Paul picks up his 2nd foul and is 1-for-5. Too much midrange. Suns only have 7 3-point attempts, but Damion Lee is in to see if he can help – 10:42 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Two fouls on Chris Paul. – 10:41 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Russell Westbrook starts game on Kevin Durant… KD scores right away.
Batum is on CP3. – 10:08 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin

Norman Powell on Suns defense: “They’re a veteran team that knows how to work the game, knows the angles. Knows what the refs are looking for, especially CP. He’s really good with his hands. Craig, being physical with Kawhi. Okogie on me, blocking my lines…” (more) – 2:32 PM

You probably already know that Chris Paul is one of the smartest players in the league. He’s also one of the best at picking off the playcalls from opposing coaches.
On the Point God’s mastery and manipulation of sign-stealing:
