Chris Paul says they did what they were supposed to do

Post-game, Shaq asked CP3 how it felt to be up 2-0 and what are they gonna do to not get overconfident. Chris Paul said: “I have been playing long enough to stay even keel. 2-0 is what it is supposed to be. You know, in this league, series don’t start till somebody lose at home. We only did what we were supposed to do so, we aint did nothing yet.”

Chris Paul’s attitude is the key to this team’s success. Likewise, his teammates have adapted to this attitude and have been seeing success ever since.

Now, Chris & co will head to Milwaukee to try and wrap up the series. While talking to Shaq, Chris said: “Got a few days before game 3. Know Milwaukee is going home, they gonna be ready, they gonna be comfortable at home with their fans. But, we’ll be ready too.”

This Phoenix team has surprised everybody, and with Chris Paul leading the team, he has done wonders with the team.
