Taking over a game, according to Paul, who is a self-proclaimed basketball enthusiast, is all about feeling. “It’s just a matter of reading the game,” Paul explained. “We watch sports 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

We were able to see all of the games on Sunday. Today, we watched the games. We know teams aren’t going to lay down in the playoffs.”
