Chris Paul showed his MVP merit in front of Nikola Jokic

DENVER — Phoenix Suns star Chris Paul got the switch he wanted to close out the first half of Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic was forced to defend the guard out of a pick-and-roll formation. Paul dribbled to the right side of the court to bring the big man out on the perimeter.

Paul danced with the ball in place to keep Jokic on his heels and then he hit him with his patented lean-to-the-right midrange jumper that found the bottom of the net to put his team up eight at intermission.
