Chris Paul sends D.J. Wilson absolutely flying with crossover (video)

The problem with defensive tracking data: How do you define who’s defending whom? Teams send help defenders, rotate and switch. Creating formulas to apportion defensive responsibility is no easy task.

Especially with Chris Paul around.

Paul crossed D.J. Wilson so badly, by the time he shot, Paul was was beyond the 3-point arc at the break and Wilson was at the baseline on the opposite side of the basket. “Skates” doesn’t do this justice.

Though the Rockets lost to the Bucks yesterday, Houston’s backcourt is so special. This wasn’t even its most-devastating crossover.
