Game thread: Rockets vs. Cavaliers

The Rockets are on ESPN tonight in a big one against Cleveland.

NBA: Houston Rockets at Cleveland Cavaliers Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockets are on national TV (ESPN) tonight in a massive contest against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Lebron James and Kyrie Irving are active, despite being on the second night of a back-to-back. So all healthy Cavs will play tonight, though Kevin Love, Kyle Korver and Andrew Bogut are all out with injuries.

The Rockets, on the other hand, should be at full strength, and after a tight game against the Cavs earlier in the year that Houston lost, this game at home should be a good a barometer for the Rockets as to where exactly they stand at this point in the season.
