Pratt’s Play of the Day (November 8)

Chris Paul

At 36 years old, surely there’s nowhere for Chris Paul to go but down, right? Wrong. CP3 is averaging a career-high 12.1 assists per game this season, which is by far the most in the NBA (Trae Young comes in at No. 2 with 9.6 apg). After starting out slow, the Suns have rattled off four-straight wins. During that stretch, Paul is averaging 48.1 DKFP per contest. Next up, CP3 will face off against a Sacramento team that ranks last in the league in DKFP allowed to PGs. He’s well worth the $8,700 price tag.
