Chris Paul put on a show last night with eight (EIGHT!) three-pointers against OKC

CP3 picked a hell of a night to catch fire.

Paul had plenty of time to tell Blake Griffin about his night while the two of them sat on the bench for the final quarter.

CHRIS PAUL HAD the best night of his career last night.

That’s not hyperbole, exaggeration or embellishment. As far as shooting goes, that’s just fact.

CP3 finished with 32 points — including a ridiculous eight three-pointers from nine attempts — and 10 assists as the LA Clippers shook off the underdog tag to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 122-105.

Paul’s hefty haul fell just short of the NBA Playoff record for the most three-pointers in a single game, which stands at nine.

But he did become the first player to have 30 points / 10 assists / and an 85% success rate in the playoffs. The only other player who even came close to those type of numbers was the legendary Michael Jordan who shot 33/13/83% in a game back in 1991.

That should give you a pretty good idea of how dominant Paul was.

Here’s his shooting breakdown:
