Eric Gordon was booed by the New Orleans fans last weekend while competing in the three-point contest and now he's back for a regular season game tonight with the Rockets. Will the fans boo again Thursday night? "I always expect different, it is what it is," Gordon said. "I'm here to win tonight and that's all that matters." Gordon spent five injury-filled seasons with New Orleans averaging 15.3 points per game. "It's fun, they have a good culture here and they're starting to love basketball a little bit more," Gordon said of the city. "It's definitely going to be a exciting game tonight with (DeMarcus) Cousins here and I expect a good crowd." Gordon isn't the only Rockets making a return to New Orleans. Ryan Anderson, who spent four seasons with New Orleans, will start at power forward for the Rockets tonight.
