Chris Paul surpasses the Big O

Chris Paul couldn't leave New Orleans' locker room last night until he finished helping a friend with his tie.

Add another assist to the Hornets' point guard, who set an NBA record in leading New Orleans to a 100-89 win over Miami.

Paul finished with 21 points and 13 assists for his sixth straight double-double of at least 20 points and 10 assists to open the season, surpassing the mark set by Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson in 1968.

"That is very historical for him to be able to pass a name like that that's a Hall of Famer," New Orleans coach Byron Scott said. "If he stays healthy and keeps growing as a basketball player, obviously he'll be a Hall of Famer, too."
