The Rockets’ 82-game schedule will be released in the near future, but we now know the logistics for one of those games.

The Rockets will travel, possibly for the first time, to the Chase Center in San Francisco to take on the Warriors.

The Rockets-Warriors rivalry will enter a new chapter this season with both teams looking dramatically different. D’Angelo Russell will get his first action in the series and so will Russell Westbrook as he suits up for Houston.

With the Warriors down Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant, it could be an opportunity for the Rockets to strike and win what could be a pivotal game for the team.

The meeting will be Houston’s fourth Christmas affair in the last five seasons and the 12th all-time Christmas game for the franchise.
