Knicks to test Paul's influence on Rockets' offense

HOUSTON -- Soon enough, the sample size won't be so small that it will be easy to disregard, and the influence Chris Paul has made on Houston's offense will be cause for examination.

With the Rockets (14-4) set to host the New York Knicks (10-8) on Saturday night at Toyota Center, they continue to play at extraordinary levels with Paul in the fold. After missing 14 games with a left knee injury, Paul has provided an already potent Houston offense a boost.

Over their last three games, all with Paul in the starting lineup, the Rockets averaged 124 points while posting a 121.9 offensive rating. Houston shot 49.2 percent from the floor while making 19 3-pointers a game at a 44.5 percent clip for a 60.6 effective shooting percentage.
