Rockets star Chris Paul has 5th most games of 25+ points, 10+ assists since 1983
Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul is one of the best players in NBA history for a reason.
Sunday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Paul posted 25 points and 10 assists to help Houston defeat Minnesota by a final score of 117-102 at home.
It was Paul’s 102nd game with 25-plus points and 10-plus assists, the fifth most in NBA history since 1983.

When it’s all said and done, Chris Paul will go down as one of the best floor generals to have ever played the game.
CP3 has career averages of 18.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 9.7 assists while shooting 47.0 percent from the field, 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 86.8 percent from the free-throw line. Paul will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer one day.
The only thing missing from Paul’s Hall of Fame résumé is an NBA championship. The nine-time All-Star has never played in the NBA Finals before. The Rockets were one game away from advancing to the Finals last season. They lost to the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals without Paul, who was out with a hamstring injury he suffered in Game 5.
The Rockets are 44-26 on the season, which is good for third place in the Western Conference standings.
