Chris Paul and the pursuit of passing perfection

Chris Paul tapped his chest and mouthed, "My bad," to Ryan Anderson after delivering a less-than-perfect pass to his wide-open Houston Rockets teammate.

"Really, man?" Anderson responded.

Anderson wasn't upset about the pass. He was taken aback that Paul apologized after an assist.

Paul had just driven the lane, drawing four Orlando Magic defenders before leaping from the right block and firing a right-hand fastball to Anderson in the left corner, squeezing the pass through a tiny window between the arms of Orlando's Bismack Biyombo and Jonathan Simmons.
