Paul offers hilarious contrast for Warriors’ poor shooting vs. Suns

When it comes to the Golden State Warriors’ poor shooting performance in their season-opening loss to the Phoenix Suns, Chris Paul has a unique perspective. The NBA veteran, who experienced much worse in the past, isn’t worried about the team’s struggles on the court.

In a post-game interview, Paul was asked about the Warriors’ tough shooting night, with only 35.6 percent accuracy from the field and 23.3 percent from beyond the arc. However, Paul quickly dismissed any concerns and shared a funny anecdote from his career to put things into perspective.

“Yeah, I ain’t really worried about the shooting. I’ve been on a team that missed 27 straight threes,” Paul said with a chuckle. “I don’t think that’s going to be the case over here. Knock on wood.

“With the shooters that we’ve got and guys being unselfish and passing up shots, I’ll live with the shots we’ve got every night.”

Paul recalled Game 7 of the 2018 Western Conference Finals, where his Houston Rockets struggled immensely from the 3-point line, missing an astounding 27 consecutive shots and finishing the game with a dismal 15.9 percent accuracy. The Rockets faced the Warriors in that game, who eventually won and advanced to the NBA Finals.

Although Paul didn’t play in Games 6 and 7 due to a hamstring injury, he vividly remembers the Rockets’ poor 3-point shooting performance. This memory serves as a reminder that no matter how much the Warriors may struggle in any given game, Paul has endured worse in the past.
