Dec. 10 9:20 PM PT10:20 PM MT11:20 PM CT12:20 AM ET5:20 GMT13:20 10:20 PM MST12:20 AM EST9:20 UAE06:200:20 ET11:20 PM CTNaN:� - Chris Paul scored 26 points Saturday on 8-of-14 shooting as the Houston Rockets defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 124-117. Paul pulled down three rebounds and dished out seven assists, tallying a plus-minus of +14 in his 34:58 of playing time. He added two steals. Paul went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Paul scored a season-high 26 as the Rockets improved to 10-0 with him in the lineup. Since shooting 3 for 20 in consecutive games, Paul has averaged 19.5 points on 28-of-53 shooting in his past four contests.
Dec. 8 10:34 PM PT11:34 PM MT12:34 AM CT1:34 AM ET6:34 GMT14:34 11:34 PM MST1:34 AM EST10:34 UAE07:341:34 ET12:34 AM CTNaN:� - Chris Paul scored 18 points Thursday on 7-of-14 shooting as the Houston Rockets topped the Utah Jazz 112-101. Paul pulled down nine rebounds and dished out 13 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +12 in his 36:43 on the floor. He added one block and three steals. Paul went 2 of 5 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Paul has tallied 39 points over his last two games after netting just 23 over his previous three, and perhaps most importantly, the 37 minutes were a season high. While his scoring numbers have fluctuated, the perennial All-Star's assist and steal numbers remain rock steady. He's averaged 10.1 assists while recording two thefts or more in six of seven games since returning from a knee injury.
Dec. 4 9:47 PM PT10:47 PM MT11:47 PM CT12:47 AM ET5:47 GMT13:47 10:47 PM MST12:47 AM EST9:47 UAE06:470:47 ET11:47 PM CTNaN:� - Chris Paul scored 21 points Sunday on 8-of-17 shooting as the Houston Rockets topped the Los Angeles Lakers 118-95. Paul pulled down four rebounds and had six assists, tallying a plus-minus of +8 in his 33:00 of playing time. He added two steals. Paul went 4 of 7 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Having tallied only 23 points over his previous three games, Paul was far more aggressive in this one and put up a season high in field goal attempts. That different approach also resulted in a season-high five turnovers, something that hasn't been a problem area during his brief tenure in Houston. CP3 had turned it over a mere nine times in his first seven games as a Rocket.

Nov. 28 6:12 AM PT7:12 AM MT8:12 AM CT9:12 AM ET14:12 GMT22:12 7:12 AM MST9:12 AM EST18:12 UAE15:129:12 ET8:12 AM CTNaN:� - Chris Paul scored four points Monday on 1-of-7 shooting as the Houston Rockets topped the Brooklyn Nets 117-103. Paul pulled down six rebounds and dished out 14 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +12 in his 30:59 on the floor. He tacked on two steals. Paul went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Paul didn't have a turnover, marking the eighth time in his career he has recorded 14 or more assists without a turnover, all coming since the start of the 2008-09 season. No other player has more than five games of doing so.
Nov. 25 7:08 PM PT8:08 PM MT9:08 PM CT10:08 PM ET3:08 GMT11:08 8:08 PM MST10:08 PM EST7:08 UAE (+1)04:0822:08 ET9:08 PM CTNaN:� - Chris Paul scored six points Saturday on 2-of-12 shooting as the Houston Rockets defeated the New York Knicks 117-102. Paul pulled down two rebounds and dished out 13 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +13 in his 30:53 on the floor. He tacked on two steals.
Analysis: Nobody is excited about six points on 2-of-12 shooting, but Paul had a season-best 13 assists as he played a season-high 30:53. He's clearly 100 percent healthy now and the double-doubles should be fairly consistent from here on out.
Nov. 22 7:22 PM PT8:22 PM MT9:22 PM CT10:22 PM ET3:22 GMT11:22 8:22 PM MST10:22 PM EST7:22 UAE (+1)04:2222:22 ET9:22 PM CTNaN:� - Chris Paul scored 23 points Wednesday, going 8 of 11 from the field, as the Houston Rockets topped the Denver Nuggets 125-95. Paul pulled down two rebounds and dished out 12 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +26 in his 27:31 of playing time. He added three steals. Paul went 4 of 7 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Paul remains on a minutes restriction with a cap of roughly 28 minutes per game. He played a season-high 27:31 in this one and made the most of it with season highs in points, assists and field goals. He's 14 for 22 from the field and 8 of 14 from deep the last two games so there's no problem with his shot at all.
Nov. 19 9:04 PM PT10:04 PM MT11:04 PM CT12:04 AM ET5:04 GMT13:04 10:04 PM MST12:04 AM EST9:04 UAE06:040:04 ET11:04 PM CTNaN:� - Chris Paul scored 17 points Saturday on 6-of-11 shooting as the Houston Rockets defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 105-83. Paul pulled down two rebounds and had six assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +10 in his 24:12 of playing time. He added one block and two steals. Paul went 4 of 7 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Paul hasn't looked like he's missed a beat in his two games since returning from a left knee injury, totaling 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting and 16 assists.
Oct. 18 10:55 PM PT11:55 PM MT12:55 AM CT1:55 AM ET5:55 GMT13:55 10:55 PM MST12:55 AM EST9:55 UAE07:551:55 ET12:55 AM CTNaN:� - Chris Paul scored four points Tuesday on 2-of-9 shooting as the Houston Rockets defeated the Golden State Warriors 122-121. 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.
Oct. 18 7:10 AM PT8:10 AM MT9:10 AM CT10:10 AM ET14:10 GMT22:10 7:10 AM MST9:10 AM EST18:10 UAE16:1010:10 ET9:10 AM CTNaN:� - Paul (knee) returned from a 14-game absence and scored 11 points Thursday on 3-of-7 shooting as the Houston Rockets topped the Phoenix Suns 142-116. Paul grabbed four rebounds and had 10 assists, tallying a plus-minus of +12 in his 20:45 on the floor. He added two steals. Paul went 2 of 4 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Paul isn't going to receive huge minutes just yet after missing a month, but Wednesday's effort showed he doesn't need them to be a fantasy factor in Houston's dynamic offense. Owners may want to approach Houston's next game with caution, though, as the Grizzlies figure to present a stiffer challenge than the defensive-deficient Suns.
Oct. 17 12:59 PM PT1:59 PM MT2:59 PM CT3:59 PM ET19:59 GMT3:59 12:59 PM MST2:59 PM EST23:59 UAE21:5915:59 ET2:59 PM CTNaN:� - Paul (knee, shoulder) confirmed after the Rockets' shootaround that he'll play in Tuesday night's season opener.
Analysis: Paul has been battling some soreness, but it doesn't appear to be anything that should hold him back in his Rockets debut.
