Rockets vs. Suns game preview: Houston welcomes Chris Paul back to Toyota Center

Photo by Barry Gossage/NBAE via Two years ago, the Houston Rockets were coming off a disappointing Western Conference Finals exit. They pushed the eventual champion Golden State Warriors, but a key injury to Chris Paul and a bevy of missed three pointers (and some Scott Foster) conspired to dash Houston’s hopes of a third franchise championship. The Rockets re-signed Chris Paul to a 4-year contract for the maximum and committed to running the team back for another shot. We’ve come a long way in two years. Tonight, the Rockets will look completely different from...

Though they currently hold the best record in the Western Conference, the Los Angeles Lakers are still expected to be active on the market before the 2021 trade deadline.
