Gordon grabbed four rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +14 in his 34:49 of playing time. Gordon went 4 of 13 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Gordon started in place of the injured Chris Paul and came through with a good performance despite struggling from the field. At least he hit some 3s after going 0 for 6 in Tuesday's season opener, when he scored 24 off the bench. It's unclear if Paul will return Saturday, but even if he does, the Rockets could limit his minutes, meaning more time for Gordon.

Gordon grabbed one rebound and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +4 in his 29:23 on the floor. He added two blocks and one steal. Gordon struggled from behind the arc, coming up empty on all six of his attempts.
Analysis: Gordon couldn't get his outside shot to fall, but he was deadly from midrange while playing a key role in the Rockets' comeback from a 15-point deficit. The good news is he's still going to have plenty of scoring opportunities in Mike D'Antoni's fast-paced offense even with Chris Paul now in the fold.
