The Houston Rockets kick off a four-game homestand with Tuesday’s visit from in-state rival San Antonio, and if you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

Houston enters with momentum on the back of a strong road trip, where they went 3-2 — with one of the lone losses at the buzzer to Golden State courtesy of a Steph Curry buzzer-beater. Now, the challenge is to find that form at Toyota Center, where they haven’t won since Dec. 8.

The Rockets defeated the Spurs earlier this month in San Antonio, but the home team was short-handed that night due to health and safety protocols absences, including starting guard Derrick White. This time, the Spurs have a clean injury report for the rematch, and they’re hoping to break out of a recent skid in which they’ve lost 12 of 15 games, overall.

The key matchup could be Houston’s Kevin Porter Jr. versus San Antonio’s Dejounte Murray. Both are young, intensely competitive guards from the Seattle area who also happen to be close friends. Murray had the superior full-game statistics on Jan. 12, but Porter hit several dagger 3-pointers late in the fourth quarter as the Rockets pulled away to win.

With a win Tuesday, the Rockets would come within two games of the Spurs in the Western Conference standings. Both teams are currently outside of the West’s 10-team playoff picture by several games, including the play-in tournament for teams seeded at No. 7 through No. 10.

Probable starting lineups

Houston Rockets (14-33)

San Antonio Spurs (17-30)

Both lineups are from each team’s latest game notes.

Injury reports

Houston’s injury report lists rookie forward Usman Garuba as out with a left wrist injury, though he was not in the rotation, anyway. Two-way players Daishen Nix and Trevelin Queen each remain in the G League, largely due to the majority of the Rockets’ roster being currently healthy.

San Antonio does not list any current injuries. Two-way players Joe Wieskamp and Devontae Cacok are in the G League, while big man Zach Collins and rookie guard Joshua Primo are on assignment.

Unlike the Rockets, the Spurs are on a back-to-back, with another game looming in San Antonio on Wednesday night. That could prompt Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich to be a bit more cautious with minutes totals than Stephen Silas, since Houston won’t play again until Friday.
