PHOENIX (AP) — Chris Paul's performance in his first NBA Finals game was the headliner on the marquee for the 30-something lineup in the series.

The 11-time All-Star is one of several players in the NBA Finals showing that a little veteran savvy can overcome a little loss of athleticism.


The Bucks have four players in their rotation who are at least 30 years old and Khris Middleton turns 30 later this summer.

The Suns have veterans like Torrey Craig and Jae Crowder providing important minutes. Paul, 36, is looking for a repeat performance in Game 2 Thursday night in Phoenix.
