It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for. Chris Paul returns to the lineup after a one-month absence. We’re all eagerly anticipating what the Houston offense will look like tonight with another play maker, though CP3 will be kept on a strict 20-minute limit.
In addition for the Rockets, Nene will also return to the court tonight after sitting out with a foot injury, though Luc Mbah a Moute will miss the game with an illness.

D'Antoni said even with Mbah a Moute out, he's holding Chris Paul to 20 minutes. Said if not, Jason Biles would tackle him.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) November 17, 2017
We may see a little awkwardness tonight, as the team works Paul back into the regular rotation, but the Rockets should be able to handle business tonight in Phoenix. The Suns are 5-10 and currently sit at 13 in the Western Conference. Even with the game taking place at the Arena formerly known as America West (now known as Talking Stick Resort Arena... what the heck), I’d like to see the good guys make it a short night.
The game starts at 9:30pm CST and airs nationally on TNT.
