Chris Paul shared his thoughts on facing James Harden and the Houston Rockets in the first round of the playoffs.

The star of the Oklahoma City Thunder admitted it would be difficult to guard Harden, but added his team has different plans on stopping the “Beard” and the Rockets’ small ball.

“I don’t know. We got different ideas over here. He has a unique way of scoring on a nightly basis. We gonna see. Russ has been unbelievable as dynamic as he is. They got a solid team,” Paul told reporters.

Paul is ready for his clash with his former team, with Game 1 taking place on Tuesday. Oklahoma City and Houston both finished with a 44-28 record.

Russell Westbrook will miss the game, due to a quad injury.
