Chris Paul, James Harden and the Houston Rockets took a six-point lead into the second quarter of the opening playoff game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. These three points were scored in style:

Paul avoided the charge, stepped back, paused, then hit the three in a defender’s eye to extend the Houston lead. Nicely done.
