Watch: Chris Paul scores first bucket as a Warrior against his former team

On the opening night of the NBA season, Chris Paul made his highly-anticipated debut as a member of the Golden State Warriors. Putting the game under more of a spotlight, the veteran point guard debuted with the Warriors against his former team, the Phoenix Suns.

While it took a bit longer than expected, Paul notched his first point as a member of the Warriors in the third quarter. While leading the Warriors’ comeback effort in the third quarter, Paul hit a mid-range jumper from the baseline for his first bucket in blue and gold.

Via @NBA on Twitter:

Paul finished the contest with 14 points on 4-of-15 shooting from the field to go along with nine assists and six rebounds in 34 minutes in the Warriors’ 108-104 loss to the Suns on Tuesday.

Paul and the Warriors will be back on the floor on Friday night for a playoff rematch against the Sacramento Kings at Golden 1 Center.
