Tonight is the penultimate game in a forgettable season for the Houston Rockets.

The big news tonight is that tonight marks the final game for legendary broadcaster Bill Worrell. Almost every big moment in Rockets history has been called by Worrell, and his voice will be missed on our televisions. His commentary team with Calvin Murphy is where I learned a lot about the game as a young kid.

AT&T SportsNet Southwest has stated that there will be guest appearances tonight to honor Worrell’s legacy. Those will likely come via video, but it would be nice to see Murphy get to call a few moments with Worrell one last time.

As for the game itself, the Clippers are sitting in third place and are trying to hold off the Denver Nuggets. Oddly, third place might not be a great place to end up because the Lakers could end up in sixth place (meaning a first round matchup) or seventh (meaning a second round matchup). So Denver may be just fine in fourth place.

Tip-off is at 8pm CT on AT&T SportsNet Southwest
