Chris Paul said that the Houston Rockets' 108-94 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks should have no impact on MVP voting between James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
"James went on a historic run. Know what I mean? Obviously I'm biased about the MVP and whoever or whatnot, but those of you that decide it on head-to-head games with a few games left in the season, good luck with that," said Paul.
Harden finished with 23 points, 10 assists, and 7 rebounds. Antetokounmpo had 19 points and 14 rebounds.
Eric Bledsoe and George Hill guarded Harden on his left hip throughout the game, forcing him to drive right. But Harden dismissed their defensive impact.
"I still got my shots up. I still was aggressive. I still did what I was supposed to do. Obviously, some shots didn't go in like every other game, but as a team we had our shots that we got. Tonight, they didn't go in. If they go in, it's a different ballgame," said Harden.
