Russell Westbrook makes his Houston Rockets debut this morning, as they team takes on the Toronto Raptors in the first of two contests against them for the NBA Japan Games.

It’s a relief to get back to basketball after the political drama from the last several days, and I’m sure we’re all curious as to how Russ is going to look alongside his new teammates and in that new uniform.

Because it’s an international game, tip-off is at 5am CST, but the game’s airing live on NBA-TV, so maybe we can get a few quarters in before getting ready for work.

Go Rockets!
