The Houston Rockets will return home after going 2-1 in their overseas games as they host the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday evening.
After games in Honolulu and Tokyo, the Houston Rockets are finally back home. James Harden and company have had a successful preseason so far by winning three of their four contests, while LaMarcus Aldridge and the Spurs have yet to come out victorious in their three.
The news hasn’t all been good for Houston, as it was announced Tuesday that reserve swingman Gerald Green is likely out for the season. While certainly an important loss, the Rockets have plenty of capable players that can pick up the slack, such as Ben McLemore, Austin Rivers and surprising undrafted guard Chris Clemons.
Houston goes into the matchup coming off a 118-111 victory over the defending champion Toronto Raptors, while San Antonio comes in 0-3 after a 123-114 loss to Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans.
While Mike D’Antoni has been playing James Harden and Russell Westbrook regular minutes in most games, Gregg Popovich has demonstrated a more conservative approach, resting Aldridge and Rudy Gay in their last game. As the preseason draws to a close, it will be interesting to see how each team balances rest with wanting to get into a rhythm for the regular season.
