Paul, who missed the ultimate two video games of the collection with an injured hamstring, was relegated to the bench because the Rockets blew a Three-2 collection lead and went ice chilly in Recreation 7, lacking an NBA-record 27 consecutive Three-pointers.

Previous to his damage, Paul averaged 21.1 factors, 5.9 rebounds and 5.eight assists in the course of the playoffs. This was his first journey to a convention remaining.
