Rockets vs. Nuggets game thread

The Rockets have a tough assignment tonight.

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets are taking on the Denver Nuggets tonight in the mountains, and they have some good news in that Chris Paul, who was battling a sore back, will be going tonight. He’ll likely sit tomorrow, according to Jonathan Feigen:

Nene, on the other hand, will sit tonight, and play tomorrow against the Utah Jazz instead.

The Nuggets will be without Gary Harris and Jamal Murray, but they’re still 35-15 and winners of their last four straight.

The Rockets are looking to rebound from a tough loss to the shorthanded New Orleans Pelicans, but’s it’s not gonna breeze tonight in Denver.
