Chris Paul stepped up big time with 27 points and crucial buckets for the Oklahoma City Thunder to push his team towards the win over the Houston Rockets. in Game 6. With their season on the line, the veteran guard and his teammates didn’t feel like returning home.

“For our team, bubble life is different,” Paul said. “When you are on the ropes like that and down 3-2 you got to pack and be ready just in case you have to leave the next day. We were not ready to go yet.”

“The best thing about sports is Game 7,” Paul later added.

The high stakes just added to Paul’ once again displaying his extreme competitiveness on the court vs. his former team. “To be honest: When you are as competitive as myself and the guys on our team, it doesn’t matter if it was my mom and my aunties out there. We wanna hoop, we wanna win. Yes it’s the team I played last year but regardless, it’s going to be the same energy no matter who it is.”
