After watching Chris Paul's amazing game, I kind of wondered to myself who had the better stat line between him and MCW.


Michael Carter Williams: 22 points, 6-10 shooting, 6-8 FT, seven rebounds, 12 assists, nine steals, four 3-pointers and just one turnover on 6-of-10 shooting, 1 TO in a 114-110 Win over the two time defending champs Miami Heat.

Chris Paul: 42 points, two rebounds, 12-20 shooting, 16-17 FT, 15 assists, six steals, two 3-pointers, 6 TO in a 126-115 Win over the Golden State Warriors.

Both exceptional stat lines, but you have to give it to the rookie in his first official NBA game, doing so against the 2 x defending champion Heat, and was pivotal of bringing back the Sixers from that late 4th qtr deficit. Also, the rookie had the better assist to turnover ratio.

Williams: 12: 1
Paul: 5:2

This might be one time where you don't have to dig too deep into the stats to tell. CP3 had 42 points and 15 assists. That's a minimum of 72 points. Carter-Williams may have had a better advanced statistical game some how but his basic stats lead to 48 points by the same standard. I do agree that the 9 steals and 1 TO's make it an interesting question. Chris Paul was dominant tonight. Was MCW dominant in that game?

MCW solely because it was his first game.

MCW did it against a tougher defense in the Heat. The Warriors are getting there defensively, but they're certainly not at the level of the Heat's championship caliber defense.

Interestingly enough, both MCW and CP3 did it against two teams who were on the 2nd end of a back-to-back (Warriors hosted the Lakers night before and Heat hosted Bulls night before).

Another thing to take into account, MCW had multiple late game steals against LeBron by repeatedly stripping him of the ball. Although Paul had a monster game, don't forget that his opposite Curry had an almost equally beastly game as well with 38 pts and 9 dimes.

Yeah Curry almost had a triple double... 11 turnovers as well.

cp3 went berserk, but that rook had pretty close to what I would consider a perfect stat-line against the defending champs, and his strips of lebron down the stretch were huge and his stats were arguably more valuable than cp3s, given the circumstances. Wow what a game by both though, this will be a fun season.

MCW for 2 reasons

1. I'm probably bias as a Sixers fan
2. CP3 I suspect has done things like this before and MCW in his first game and I seem to remember someone posting in another topic that what MCW did has only happened 3 times in NBA history

MCW.

12 assists, 1 turnover > 15 assists, 6 turnovers.

9 steals > 6 steals.

7 rebounds > 2 rebounds.

Scoring is 50/50. CP3 had more points mainly due to the amount of free throws he shot. MCW did a better job spreading the floor.


On top of all that, you have to take into account the context. MCW was playing his first ever competitive professional basketball game against the reigning champs and arguably the best team in the league.

MCW by far. Points are nice, but 1 T/O is ridiculously good especially with 15 assists. Chris had a better offensive performance when it comes to scoring, but being that efficient against the Heat is amazing. Especially in your first game.

I say the kid because of the circumstances. Obviously you can make a sound logicla argument for Paul as a few posters did above but he had a legendary debut.

He is a rookie on a team that is supposed to tank playing against the best team in the world and does that? crazy. Most steals in a debut in NBA HISTORY! plus its not like he made sloppy rookie mistakes. Was very efficient (I know Paul was more so) and only turned the ball over once!

MCW cause it was his first game in a win over the Heat! Also he was 3 rebounds and 1 steal shy of a quadruple double.

MCW.

The only thing CP3 really did better was scoring (the fts helped too), everything else was pretty much all MCW. More steals, more boards, much less TOs and did all of that against the two time defending champs. Not to mention he did all of this in his first nba game.

Great start for the season so far.
