The Rockets’ winning streak ended on Tuesday when the Toronto Raptors came into the Toyota Center and ran Houston pretty good, 129–113.
Houston looked ragged and the Raptors are a really tough team. They are among Houston, Boston, San Antonio and possibly Cleveland a couple others that can lay claim to being the second-best team in the NBA.
James Harden scored 38 and threw 11 assists in the loss. He wasn’t as efficient as he’s been so far this season, though. Half of those 38 came at the free throw line (where he was perfect), which is awfully efficient. But 8-for-25 shooting from the field is an off-night for him.
Reports are that Chris Paul will play in this game. He’s been out since the first game when he scored four points in 33 minutes. Aside from being a world-class talent, Paul adds desperately-needed backcourt depth. Harden and Gordon have been playing huge minutes.
Nene, meanwhile, missed his second game in a row with a foot sprain. It doesn’t sound like he’ll miss much time but his status for Thursday isn’t certain.
The Suns aren’t must-see tv but it seems like I see a Marquese Chriss rejection every few days on Reddit for the internet to admire. He’s one of Phoenix’s young players that has the front office and fan base excited about the future.
TJ Warren and Devin Booker and volume scorers who will probably enjoy this game quite a bit. Neither will be bashful about throwing up three-pointers in this one.
Otherwise, much of what the Suns have is in future assets. Seven first-round picks in the next four drafts, for one. And then a lot of untapped potential in the current young core. It’s not a team built to play with the Rockets on Thursday, however.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction: Houston.
Now we can resume scrutinizing the Chris Paul Houston project. As long as Eric Gordon keeps shooting it off the bench like he’s been shooting it as a starter, there shouldn’t be any cause for concern.
