The veteran point guard and future Hall of Famer absolutely dominated the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals. CP3 was on fire during perhaps the biggest game of his career, dropping 41 points to go with eight assists, four rebounds and three steals in a 130-103 win. The 36-year-old guard tied his career playoff high in points in the victory, and was noticeably on fire in the third quarter, hitting three 3-pointers and going on an 8-0 run to close it out by himself.
In appreciation for Paul making his first-ever NBA Finals, his fellow stars gave him props on Twitter.

Suns coach Monty Williams also received a nice tribute from Jeremy Lin.
Monty Williams and his journey is impossible to not love and root for. Sooo heartwarming. Faith, perseverance and hope :pray::skin-tone-3:— Jeremy Lin (@JLin7) July 1, 2021
The next day, Patrick Beverley even apologized to CP3 for shoving him later in the game.
@CP3 emotions got the best of me last night gang. My bad wasn't meant for you. Congrats on making it to the Finals. Best of Luck 🤞🏾— Patrick Beverley (@patbev21) July 1, 2021
