Veteran point player Chris Paul did whatever he might to assist his Phoenix Suns look after the New Orleans Pelicans and advance to the 2nd round of the NBA playoffs. That consisted of developing a curfew for his group. 

During a Friday episode of the Brian Windhorst & the Hoop Collective podcast, Windhorst stated Paul established spaces in the group’s hotel to enjoy championship game and play cards. The gamers were permitted to go out around the city, however Paul anticipated them back at the hotel by a particular time. The curfew was supposedly not enforced by coach Monty Williams or any assistants; it was a choice Paul made himself. 

The city of New Orleans is understood for its dynamic environment, specifically locations like Bourbon Street — which is just an eight-minute drive from Smoothie King Arena — that embody a celebration ambiance. It’s reasonable Paul did not wish to take any opportunities for interruptions, specifically considering that star colleague Devin Booker suffered a hamstring injury throughout Game 2 of the series, leaving the Suns without their leading scorer till Game 6.

Phoenix is on a major objective to make it back into the NBA Finals after losing to the Milwaukee Bucks on that phase in 2015. The Suns have actually been on the best track long prior to the playoffs, as they completed the routine season with the very best record in the league (64-18) and made the Western Conference’s No. 1 seed. 

The Suns’ series versus the Pelicans was connected 2-2 after the very first 4 video games, however Phoenix had the ability to cover it up with a 115-109 win in Game 6 on Thursday. Paul made 14-straight basket throughout that video game, which is the most without a miss out on in NBA playoff history. The point player remains in his 17th NBA season and has yet to win a ring, however there is no doubt he is providing it his best shot.

The Suns are set to begin their second-round series versus the Dallas Mavericks on Monday at the Footprint Center in Phoenix.
