After a brief hiatus last season, the Rockets are featured once again in the NBA's annual Christmas showcase. They have gone 2-0 on December 25 since James Harden joined the squad, with both games coming on the road. Today the Rockets get to play host in front of a Toyota Center crowd that will hopefully arrive on time.
Houston comes into the game nursing a .500 record and a disappointing season thus far.
Most Houston fans are coming into the game expecting a loss, as is Las Vegas, who have the Spurs as 7-point favorites to take the game in Houston.

Keep it civil, and Merry Christmas!
