Russell Westbrook comes back to play against the his former team — a team that he spent one year on that basically has a completely different roster, coaching staff, GM, no James Harden, and no crowd.
John Wall faces his old team, but it’s not in their old home, so it’s never as fun.
Also, both players are teams that are currently losing, so what’s there really in proving who’s the better worse team, right?
The biggest story here is that Victor Oladipo will play alongside Wall for the first time as a Rocket, so that’s really something to look forward to.
What do you expect to see from the Rockets’ backcourt duo? Do you think Russell Westbrook has something to prove against his one-year team? And will Bradley Beal and Wall get to show some serious love among these newest COVID restrictions?
Let us know your predictions for tonight’s game and who you expect to be the standout player for Houston.
Last, but certainly not least, let’s go ROCKETS!
