Where to watch the game?
Houston comes into this game on the heels of a solid road trip in which they went 3-2, with one of the lone defeats coming at the buzzer against Golden State. The Rockets trounced the Spurs in San Antonio earlier this month, but the home team was short-handed that night because of health and safety procedure absences.
