Chris Paul has been on a tear for the Phoenix Suns since he returned from a hip injury and now he’s obtained a stat that hasn’t happened since Steve Nash. Paul is the first player at age 37 or older with at least four consecutive games with at least four double-doubles since Steve Nash in 2012-13.

Since returning from injury, the veteran point guard has been on a tear for the Suns. In his last 4 games, Paul has been putting up very efficient numbers that have helped navigate the Suns to a 3-1 record in that span.

If the Suns can continue to get this kind of play from Chris Paul, the sky is the limit for this team once Devin Booker, Cam Payne, and Landry Shamet return.
Paul is hoping to keep the good play going as the Suns are looking ahead to play the Toronto Raptors later tonight at Footprint Arena.
