As the calendar turns toward the Winter Solstice, basketball moves to the forefront of anything non-football. The story of the NBA season has been the Houston Rockets, and their ascension to best team in the league can be traced to a key acquisition. Chris Paul has not lost a game as a starter for the Houston Rockets. 15-0 through Monday. As a complement to perennial MVP runner up James Harden, Paul forces the other team to guard two good ball handlers and shooters which has proven to not be feasible. But for this week, Paul shot 54% from the field, including 46% from 3-point, missing just 1 free throw in 19 tries. Throw in 25 rebounds and 31 assists in 4 games in which the Rockets went 4-0 (and haven't lost a game since he returned from injury), and you have a solid Sportsman of the Week!
