Los Angeles Clippers veteran point guard Chris Paul found himself a new toy in Denver Nuggets’ Mason Plumlee Thursday night.

Here, Paul plays with Plumlee’s mind to the point of confusion. First, with a convincing shot fake followed by a seemingly even more convincing fake pass before dropping in the 19-footer.

As expected, Clippers fans tweeted out their responses in awe of Paul’s prowess, while Nuggets supporters came to Plumee’s aid to emphasize that the Nuggets still won the contest.

 

Plumlee helped the Nuggets to a 129-114 win over the visiting Clippers with 10 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in just his fourth start with Denver this season.

Paul also left his mark despite finishing on the losing end of the night, as he posted 18 points and 14 assists.

Though the Nuggets ultimately had the last laugh, Paul helped the Clippers earn the first.
