Rockets vs. Bulls - game thread

The Rockets are lineup shuffling again tonight.

NBA: Houston Rockets at Chicago Bulls Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Houston Rockets (2-5) vs. Chicago Bulls (2-7), Nov. 3, 2018, 7:00 p.m. CDT

Tonight at the United Center in Chicago, the Rockets look for their first winning streak of the season as they take on the Chicago Bulls on the second night of a back-to-back.

The good news is that James Harden returns tonight. The bad news is that there still is no continuity, as Eric Gordon will now miss the game with what’s being called a “sore right leg”. He’s officially listed as day-to-day.

James Ennis will, in fact, be in the lineup after all, which is good news, but it’s still difficult to get into a solid rhythm with so many lineup changes. If the Rockets are going to use last night’s victory over the Brooklyn Nets as a springboard to jump start their season, they can’t slip backwards and look lost again tonight against the Bulls despite that lack of continuity.

Tonight’s game airs locally on AT&T Southwest, and for those of us out of market, we’ll catch you on the NBA LP.

Go Rockets!
