Game thread: Rockets vs 76ers

Houston battles Philly for the second time in a week.

NBA: Houston Rockets at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

It’s rematch time for the Rockets and 76ers, since Philly is apparently one of only two teams Houston is allowed to play along with the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Rockets get Eric Gordon back in action tonight, and not a moment too soon (both for Houston and for my fantasy team), while Nene is listed as a game-time decision.

For Philly, Rocket killer J.J. Redick will not play, which means Dario Saric draws the start, according to Jonathan Feigen.

It’s a 7pm CST start for tonight’s contest, and we’ll be looking for the Rockets to rebound after their loss to Memphis over the weekend. For what it’s worth, Houston stayed in the top spot in ESPN’s weekly Power Rankings despite the defeat. We’ll see tonight if they deserve it. Philly is a tough out, but one the Rockets should be able to handle if they’re as good as we think they are, especially at home.

Go Rockets!
