The Rockets head to Phoenix tonight to take on the Suns, one day after their 10-game winning streak came to an end in a tight loss to the San Antonio Spurs. The Suns are 8-20 and come into the contest on a three-game losing streak, so this is a great opportunity for the Rockets to get back on the winning track.
They've done a pretty good job so far this season winning the games they are supposed to, and they'll be bolstered by the news that Nene will in fact be playing tonight's back-to-back. Though it will actually be Montrezl Harrell who draws the start tonight, his first of the season.

Excited to see what Trez does tonight as a starter, and here's AK's preview in case you missed it.
