NBA: Chris Paul praises Mikal Bridges after career-high performance [WATCH]

On Sunday, Phoenix Suns forward Mikal Bridges dropped a career-high 34 points in the team’s win over the Indiana Pacers.

Later in the post-game, the Suns knew they had to celebrate Bridges’ career performance with a water bath inside their locker room.

Veteran point guard Chris Paul, who was acquired during the offseason via a trade, had high remarks for his new teammate, as reported by Kellan Olson of Arizona Sports:

Paul added Bridges not only is a tough offensive creator but is also a great person off the court.

The 24-year-old Bridges is averaging 15.2 PPG and 5.4 RPG, while shooting 49% overall from the floor.

The 3rd year pro has blossomed in a starting role, and the Suns are currently in the playoff picture, thanks to Bridges’ valuable contributions.
