Data template pagination

Is it possible to get Hugo to paginate over a large data file and create separate static pages with N items on each page in the same way it does for content? The use case is that I have a JSON structure with a lot of one-liners and quotes. Right now, everything is displayed on one page, as seen here. Pagination would be a lot more user friendly.

The JSON is pulled from an API I control, so I can make any changes necessary to change the structure of the JSON.

No this is not possible. Hugo pagination only works for Page collections.
