The Houston Rockets looked like a new team with CP3 back in last night’s win over the San Antonio Spurs, and they’ll look to keep it rolling tonight against the Chicago Bulls.
Gerald Green is also back in the lineup, and Nene is listed as probable as well, meaning we could see the veteran big man back on the court for the first time this season, as the team seems to finally be getting healthy.
Brandon Knight is also close to returning, though it sounds like we won’t see him quite yet, even though he’s already been recalled from a one-game stint in the G-League.
Knight is listed as out as he has been throughout the season. The game with the Vipers was considered part of the rehab process. As D'Antoni said last night, it was another step with a long way to go. https://t.co/6H3NhSCRLE— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) December 1, 2018
The Bulls are really struggling at 5-18, so this is a good opportunity for the Rockets to get back to .500 and start up a new winning streak. In a week that featured several bad losses, most notably to the Dallas Mavericks, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Washington Wizards, I don’t think I could stomach another one.
Let’s get this one done at home. Go Rockets!
