Paul accumulated 22 points (9-19 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and five assists over 36 minutes during Saturday's 113-107 win over the Nets.

Paul needed 19 shots to rack up 22 points, but that might be the only "negative" aspect of what was an excellent performance from the veteran floor general against one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. He kept turnovers to a minimum, committing three or fewer for the fifth game in a row, and he also ended just boards shy of putting up what would've been his third straight double-double. While Paul is not going to be Phoenix's main scoring weapon on a nightly basis, he's getting the job done on both ends of the court of late. He's averaging 14.8 points, 8.2 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game over his last five appearances.
