Chris Paul voiced his frustration after the Phoenix Suns lost their third straight game on Wednesday.
"We're not ..." Paul started, pausing briefly, "playing well enough right now. I'm not going to say we're not good enough, but we're not playing well enough right now."
The Suns are now 8-8 on the season and have been without Devin Booker for two straight games.
"We play in spurts," Paul said. "We've gotta respect who we're playing against. Every night. Respect the opponent. They get paid just like we do."
