Houston Rockets vs Phoenix Suns starters
The Rockets started Jalen Green, Eric Gordon, Alperen Sengun, Jabari Smith Jr., and Kevin Porter Jr. Wednesday against the Nuggets. The group has posted ghastly defensive metrics but remains the Rockets’ go-to starting lineup.
The Suns started Devin Booker, Cameron Payne, Torrey Craig, Mikal Bridges, and Deandre Ayton against the Bulls. With Craig out, the Suns are incredibly thin at power forward. Expect them to start a small forward or guard in his place.
