Chris Paul talked about the heavy loss to the Memphis Grizzlies (121-92) and stated the Oklahoma City Thunder have been a different team lately.

The superstar of the Thunder said the absence of Dennis Schroder (who has temporarily left he “bubble” in order to be close to his pregnant wife) has cost the team.

“We’re a totally different team without Dennis. There haven’t been many times this season that we sort of play without having a couple ball handlers on the court. It is what it is, we’re gonna fight, we’re going to keep getting through these games,” Paul said, via Logan Newman of USA TODAY SPORTS.
