The Phoenix Suns still have a long way to go to win an NBA championship, but Chris Paul may have already won his personal title.

Tuesday night’s win over the Los Angeles Clippers ended one of the most bizarre streaks in league history.

Prior to Game 2, Chris Paul had lost 13 straight playoff games coached by Scott Foster.

Needless to say, this became a hot topic of discussion among fans and members of the media, so many took to Twitter to discuss the matter.

The streak included some notable and important season-deciding games, and no one fully understood what was going on.

Of course, many fans claimed that Foster had something against Paul and rigged games against him.

And while that may seem like the obvious and logical conclusion — I mean, he lost 13 straight games, some of them in incredible fashion — that’s a pretty serious allegation that we’re not going to make.

There was a scandal of point-shaving and game-fixing with banned referee Tim Donaghy, but even an FBI investigation determined he was a rogue agent and not a league-wide trend.

It is likely that this was just a coincidence, although it is extremely unfortunate.

What matters now is that the series is even at one win each, and the Suns will now go on the road to try to take homecourt advantage after their blowout in Game 1.

Whatever the case, though, Paul can be relieved to know that someone else will be whistling on that game.
