mavs crushed in game 2; chris paul breaks franchise record


chris paul will finish not lower than second in the MVP balloting in my humble opinion. and if people who voted for kobe did so because they were not sure how cp3 would fare in the playoffs, they must be shaking thier heads. i bet chayee won't agree. hehehe

but even the most loyal kobe bryant fan would agree that chris paul had two mvp-caliber performances in his first two career playoffs game. the feisty guard from wake forest broke the franchise record for assists in a single regulation playoffs game after dishing out 17 helpers in the game 2 of the series between the new orleans hornets and the dallas mavericks.

the next two games will be in dallas and surely, avery johnson would be doing everything in his power to win the two games at home. dirk nowitzki, josh howard, jason terry, jerry stackhouse, jason kidd, big names with great skills. but somehow, they cannot come up with an answer to cp3's dominance in the series.

i'm rooting for the hornets and i hope that they can win the next game. am not looking beyond that though. geaux hornets!
