“You play long enough and you don’t win, every time you lose, they’re going to say it was your best chance,” said Paul. “But I think for me, us, it’s we’ll be right back next year. I’ll tell you that much.

“I’m not retiring tomorrow, thank God. Hopefully, I’m healthy coming back. But I’m [going to] keep playing.”

Paull, 37, signed a four-year deal worth $120 million last offseason. The deal is partially guaranteed in the final year. 

He had been suffering from a quad injury during the later part of the season, but playing through it, per Marc Spears of Andscape. Paul did not comment on the injury after the game.
