Using a light shove, Chris Paul was able to separate himself just enough from Tony Allen’s tenacious D to knock in the game-winner. Watching Game 2 of this intense Grizzlies/Clippers Playoff matchup from home, Phil Jackson jokingly tweeted that CP3 did something similar to what Michael Jordand did to Bryon Russell in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals: “As per MJ’s shot in game 6. That wasn’t a push off. It was a helping hand to a broke down comrade. :-)”
