Watch: Suns PG Chris Paul nutmegs defender in win over Rockets
There goes that bad man again, the Point God.
Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul added yet another highlight-reel play to his Hall of Fame resume in a 115-89 win over the Houston Rockets on Sunday.
With a 22-point lead and four minutes to go in the contest, Paul dribbled the ball through Rockets forward Usman Garuba’s legs en route to a pull-up jumper.

It still would’ve been a cheeky play even if the guard missed the shot.
But Paul’s attempt was taken right along the free throw line, perfectly in between the two elbows — his usual trademark shot.
The 36-year-old finished the contest with 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting (54.5%) from the field and 2-for-5 from three-point range.
Paul also added three rebounds, four assists and seven steals in the win.
