Chris Paul came back from injury and didn’t miss a beat. He has 13 and 14 assists in two games since returning. He returned to his normal workload last game with 36 minutes, and I think this is a great spot to target with a mini ladder.
First, I will talk about this Golden State defense. They’ve been terrific this season. They are top 5 in many defensive categories. So why am I targeting them? They have been atrocious lately. Over the last 3 games they have allowed 123, 123, and 121 points. They also allowed 26 or more assists in all of those games, averaging 28.7 allowed in those 3. Chris Paul, a 9.5 assist line, and a struggling warriors defense…sign me up. That 9.5 line is a little too juicy for my liking to play it solo, so I’m gonna get a little riskier on it and mini ladder this up to 12+ as well.
As I mentioned, CP3 is 2/2 since his return from injury. He has hit this in 8 of his last 10 games. He also hit 12+ in 7 of those 10 games. He’s hit the 9.5 line in 63% of games this season. He leads the league potential assists, and has had 22.5 potential per game since his return from injury. I’m looking for Chris to continue his incredible season and let his teammates take care of business vs the Warriors.
