Chris Paul On The Verge Of Unwanted NBA History

Chris Paul is one of the greatest floor generals to ever grace an NBA floor. However, losing another game to the Bucks in this year's Finals would put him in uncharted — specifically, undesirable — territory. Paul would become the first player in league history to lose four best-of-7 series in which his team led 2-0, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Paul is not the only player who has surrendered multiple 2-0 series leads, as former teammate Blake Griffin has also accomplished the unfavorable feat three times.

The 36-year-old lost his first series while leading 2-0 in 2008, falling to the defending champion Spurs in seven games. History would repeat itself for Paul in the first round in 2013 against the Grizzlies, and again in 2016 versus the Blazers.

While this series is far from over, the Point God's play has steadily diminished since Phoenix's first two wins at home. In his last three games, Paul has 10 turnovers — which is incredibly uncharacteristic — and hasn't attempted more than 15 shots; the 11-time All-Star attempted 19 and 20 field goals in games one and two, respectively. 

Many fans and pundits alike are attributing fatigue to Paul's recent subpar performances. ESPN's Stephen A. Smith posits that "something is wrong with Chris Paul," referring to a possible injury. 

Paul and the Suns will have their season on the line in game 6, where the Point God will attempt to alter the course of his legacy.
