Over the course of Game 3 and Game 4, Chris Paul hasn't looked like himself due to a shoulder injury. The Phoenix Suns lost those games, partly due to Chris Paul's injury limitations. However, Chris Paul has had an amazing bounce-back game in Game 4 and led the Phoenix Suns to a win with 18 points and 9 assists.

During a postgame interview with Rachel Nichols, Chris Paul shared the details of a funny conversation that he had with coach Monty Williams ahead of the game. Paul mentioned that Williams was going to bench him prior to the game, and Paul stated that his response was "hell nah"

Sometimes players do better as they get into the groove of the game, and it seems as though this was the case for Paul. Chris Paul is the leader of this Phoenix suns team, and they are simply not the same without him. It is unclear whether his injury will limit his in future games, but he definitely looked more healthy on the court than he has been.

The job isn't done yet for the Phoenix Suns, and they still have two games left to win in order to advance to the second round. The Phoenix Suns will certainly perform better if their leader is at full capacity, and hopefully, he will be.
