Perfect Paul: Chris Paul Makes NBA Playoff History

Chris Paul made NBA playoff history by setting the record for most field goals made without a miss in the postseason, going 14-of-14 in Phoenix's 115-109 series-clinching victory in Game 6.

The Suns star finished with 33 points, five rebounds, and eight assists to eliminate the Pelicans for good and advance to the second round of the playoffs.

With Phoenix trailing by 10 at the half, Paul led the Suns' third quarter attack, scoring 13 points in the period. He continued to pour it on in the fourth, scoring 10 points in the final frame.

In a one possession game with under a minute left, CP3 made 13-footer with 28.7 seconds remaining to extend Phoenix's lead to five and essentially put New Orleans away.

Paul has been spectacular this entire series and saved his best for last by putting together the perfect game to get the Suns to round two. He averaged 22.3 points and 11.3 assists and shot (because of his 14-of-14 night) an elite 56.7 percent for the entire series.

Nonetheless, the upstart Pelicans still gave the top-seeded Suns all they can handle. It won't get any easier for the Suns though, as they will take on Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference semi-finals.

Game 1 for that series will be on Monday at Phoenix.
