The Suns bring a loaded backcourt to town with Chris Paul and Devin Booker, while Houston counters with Victor Oladipo and Eric Gordon.
After a solid rookie season, his scoring average increased each of the next three seasons and this season started as his best yet. He was averaging 18.5 points, a career high 6.0 assists and a career best 4.3 rebounds prior to the trade. Though teams conduct physicals at the start of each season, LeVert wasn't sure if the Nets ever scanned his lower back.
Zach LaVine scored 33 points, and the Chicago Bulls overcame a strong effort by Victor Oladipo in his Houston debut, beating the Rockets 125-120 on Monday night. LaVine led seven Bulls players in double figures and added seven assists. He scored nine points in the closing minutes of the third to help send Chicago to the final quarter with a 93-86 lead.
