Nets at Rockets preview: How to watch, TV channel, start time

The Brooklyn Nets (15-19, ninth in the Eastern Conference) visit Toyota Center on Wednesday to face the Houston Rockets (16-15, ninth in the Eastern Conference) for the second leg of a back-to-back and if you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place!

The Nets enter this matchup following a 112-85 loss at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday in which Brooklyn was essentially non-competitive from the opening tip. The Nets allowed the Pelicans to get out to a 16-3 lead early in the first quarter and the game continued to go downhill from there.

The Rockets come into this game after a 136-113 win over the Detroit Pistons in which Houston blew the game open in the third quarter by winning the period 47-25. Each player in the Rockets’ starting lineup had a plus/minus of at least +15 as a testament of how well the unit played against the Pistons despite missing Dillon Brooks.

Here’s when and where you should tune in:
