How to watch Rockets vs. Clippers: NBA live stream info, TV channel, time, game odds


Through 1 Quarter

The Houston Rockets were expected to take an ‘L’ in this one, but so far it isn’t playing out to script. They have emerged as the frontrunner after one quarter and are ahead of the Los Angeles Clippers 28-21.

The Rockets have been relying on the performance of point guard Dennis Schroder, who has eight points and three assists along with three rebounds. Los Angeles has been led by power forward Nicolas Batum, who so far has five points in addition to two boards and one block.

What to Know

The Houston Rockets will be returning home after a four-game road trip. They will square off against the Los Angeles Clippers at 7 p.m. ET Sunday at Toyota Center. Houston needs to shore up a defense that is allowing 118.15 points per game.

The Rockets came up short against the Orlando Magic this past Friday, falling 119-111. Shooting guard Jalen Green put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 23 points along with five rebounds.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 105-102 win over the Los Angeles Lakers this past Friday. The Clippers can attribute much of their success to small forward Terance Mann, who dropped a double-double on 19 points and ten boards.

Houston is expected to lose this next one by 7. Their home court has been no bettor’s paradise, as they’ve failed to beat the spread in 18 of their 26 home games.

The Rockets took a serious blow against Los Angeles in the teams’ previous meeting earlier this month, falling 142-111. Can Houston avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
