Chris Paul got tired of not contending in the Western Conference against the Golden State Warriors, so he bolted from Los Angeles to team up with James Harden and the Houston Rockets. NBA pundits automatically made the Rockets a force in the stacked West, but the jury is still out as to how this partnership will pan out.
In this interview with The Jump‘s Rachel Nichols, both Harden and CP3 talk about what it has been like playing together thus far and what fans should look forward to.
The Beard says his pressure to handle the ball will significantly decrease, while Paul is glad to be able to do more on the court besides set up plays. The two have motivation to go deep in the playoffs and they’re hoping them playing together will make the Rockets a team to be scared of.
