Chris Paul’s assist-to-turnover ratio through the roof through 9 games
Chris Paul’s emergence into this Houston Rockets system has had a major effect.
Aside from being an undefeated 9-0 during games where he is on the court, the dime maestro has managed a jaw-dropping 4.9-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio in half court sets, and a mind-blowing 9-to-1 ratio in transition, according to Synergy Sports Tech.
Paul was already known as one of the game’s surgical talents at the art of passing, but coupled with Mike D’Antoni’s high pace, pedal-to-the-metal offense, and the Rockets have a system like no other in NBA history.
Houston is playing more like the Showtime Los Angeles Lakers than the current Lakers are, striving to get there someday.
Paul is fresh off an 18-point, nine-rebound, 13-assist masterpiece against the Utah Jazz last night, turning the ball over only twice, while collecting three steals, a block, and two three-pointers made for a Rockets offense that has looked unstoppable during this winning streak.
Despite missing 14 games this season with a knee injury, Paul is back to being one of the league’s leaders in assists and could currently lead the league if he had at least six more games under his belt to qualify.
The 6-foot passing wizard is averaging 13 points, 10.1 assists, and 4.8 rebounds per game through this young season.
