Chris Paul scores 11 points with 10 assists in return for Rockets

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul is expected to make his return Thursday against the Phoenix Suns after missing nearly a month with a bruised left knee. We have Devin Booker slated as our top play tonight, and believe your lineups should be built around him.

Paul started the season opener but left in the second half and missed the next 13 games while recovering from a bone bruise in his knee originally suffered during the preseason. James Harden poured in 48 points with seven assists, Ryan Anderson drained six three-pointers en route to 24 points while Eric Gordon chipped in with 13 points.

Greg Monroe did his best to bolster that total in his Suns debut and registered 20 points (10-of-14 shooting) and 11 rebounds, but Phoenix was outscored 63-30 from beyond the arc and had no answer for Houston's impeccably spaced attack.

"What we've done up to now doesn't count", D'Antoni said. "We've got a new team (Thursday)".

Coming off a 38-point outing in Tuesday's 129-113 loss to the Toronto Raptors, Harden turned in an efficient gem as he tallied his 48 points on 12-of-22 shooting, including 6-of-11 from three.

Harden also made all 18 of his free throws and is now a flawless 42-of-42 from the charity stripe over Houston's last three games. Booker will lead his Suns into battle against the Houston Rockets tonight in a game that projects to be a shootout. Booker, 21, is averaging 23.2 points and combined for 71 points on 27-of-49 shooting in the last two games - a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves and a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers that dropped the Suns to 1-4 on a six-game homestand that ends Thursday.
