The Houston Rockets is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Oklahoma City Thunder at 8:00 A.M. (PHI time) on October 29, 2019 live from the Toyota Center, Houston, USA.
The Rockets will try to make two consecutive wins while the Thunder wanted to do the same and improve to .500 mark when the 2019-20 NBA season resumes in Houston.
Team Houston is fresh from their victory against the Zion Williamson-less New Orleans Pelicans last October 27.
In that game, Russell Westbrook passed Magic Johnson for the second-most-triple-doubles as he now got 139 under his belt.
“He’s not fazed by anything,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said. “He remains calm. That’s a mark of a winner, and he had a triple-double tonight. I mean, the guy is relentless. He’s a gamer.”
Westbrook delivered 28 points, 20 rebounds, and 13 assists in that win while James Harden had 29 points.
For team OKC on the other hand, they humiliated the Golden State Warriors at the Chesapeake Energy Arena yesterday.
The lead after the final buzzer was heard was 28 points and it was the largest made by the franchise after it moved from Seattle.
Dennis Schröder led Oklahoma City in that victory with his 22 points while Danilo Gallinari chipped in with 21 markers.
