Point guard Chris Paul remains the only player who has dished out at least 10 assists in every NBA Playoff Game so far during the 2017 NBA Playoffs. The Los Angeles Clippers guard has had four games against the Utah Jazz with no fewer than 10 assists per game. The 31-year-old assisted 11 times in the first game, 10 times in the second and third games, and most recently had 12 assists in Game 4. He has been averaging 10.8 assists per contest so far in the postseason, according to ESPN.

Paul's assisting has not harmed his scoring contribution, as he has been a regular contributor to his team when it comes to making buckets.

The guard has been posting 26.8 points per game so far during the postseason, along with the already mentioned 10.8 assists. The 2013 NBA All-Star game MVP has been the leader of his team so far, which is tied at 2-2 against the Jazz after four games played.

The team needs Paul to keep up his output

Their star power forward Blake Griffin has been ruled out for the rest of the 2017 NBA Playoffs due to a toe injury. The 28-year-old suffered the injury in the second quarter of Game 3 in Salt Lake City. Griffin was putting up good numbers in the postseason, and he was on pace to have another good game when he was forced to leave Game 3 with 11 points.

The team from L.A.

needs Chris Paul to continue his great form in order to prevail over the Jazz. The loss of Griffin is a huge one, and the Clippers' chances of making it all the way this season have taken a huge hit. However, the team still has a good shot at reaching the next round, as they will be hosting the Jazz in Game 5.

Nene makes history

Brazilian center Nene became the second player in the history of the NBA to post a 20 point and 10 rebound game without a miss from the field in a playoff game. The center went a perfect 12-of-12 from the field to score 28 points, while grabbing 10 rebounds along the way. He was a big contributor in Houston's win over Oklahoma on the road in Game 4.

The Rockets are now in a great position to reach the Western Conference semi-finals, as they have a 3-1 lead over the Thunder. Nene has been averaging 13.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game so far for his team during the 2017 NBA Playoffs.
