Chris Paul bites so hard on Pau Gasol’s epic fake, Cliff Paul felt it (Video)


Nothing went correctly for the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night as they were destroyed by fellow Staples Center resident, the Los Angeles Clippers.

The loss was among the worst in Lakers history – an embarrassing moment that Clippers point guard Chris Paul probably understands as well, as he too had a rough evening – though for a set of completely different reasons.

While Paul’s Clippers manhandled the Lakers, he found himself to be the butt of internet jokes on Thursday evening as he was faked out of his shoes by Lakers forward Pau Gasol during a fastbreak.

With Gasol streaking down the court and multiple Clippers defenders ready to pounce, Gasol decided he’d fake to his right – a fake that CP3 bit on quite hard.

Paul is known to be a bit dramatic with his flops and his acting moves seemingly translated pretty well into the fake as he appeared completely lost for a moment.

He bit so hard, I’m pretty sure Cliff Paul felt that one.
