Paul pulled down eight rebounds and had 11 assists, tallying a plus-minus of -12 in his 33:04 on the floor. He added one block and two steals.
Analysis: Paul's highly anticipated Houston debut was a dud from a points perspective, though he certainly contributed in other areas. He's also dealing with a sore knee that may have affected his performance, something fantasy owners need to monitor with the Rockets in action again Wednesday in Sacramento.

Paul had four points and shot 2 for 9 in the Rockets' season-opening win at Golden State on Tuesday. Coach Mike D'Antoni isn't counting on him Saturday for the home opener against Dallas. ''I think he's still in play but I think it's hard," D'Antoni said.
Analysis: Paul was hampered at the end of the preseason by the knee pain which continued flaring Tuesday, and D'Antoni says the perennial All-Star ''is playing on one leg right now.'' Tuesday's game was the first since March 9, 2015 where Paul was held to four points or less.

Analysis: Paul has been battling some soreness, but it doesn't appear to be anything that should hold him back in his Rockets debut.
