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

The Brooklyn Nets (17-27, 11th in the Eastern Conference) will be hosting the Houston Rockets (21-23, 11th in the Western Conference) at Barclays Center on Saturday 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 narrow 96-94 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday in which Brooklyn most likely lost this game in the second quarter as opposed to the fourth. Despite winning the second half 46-36, the Nets lost the second quarter to the Timberwolves 36-17 and spent the rest of the game climbing their way back into it.

The Rockets come into this game after a 138-104 win at the Charlotte Hornets on Friday thanks to 36 points and 10 rebounds from guard Jalen Green. Houston will be playing on the second night of a back-to-back so the Nets may have the rest advantage in this contest.
