Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Clippers starters

The Clippers started Paul George, Reggie Jackson, Luke Kennard, Ivica Zubac, and Marcus Morris Sr. against the Rockets on Monday. The Clippers have had four different starting lineups over their first seven games, so their starting lineup is always a game-time decision. Paul George, Reggie Jackson, and Ivica Zubac have started every game, but with Jackson’s shooting struggles, John Wall could be in line for his first start of the season.  

The Rockets started Jalen Green, Kevin Porter Jr., Alperen Sengun, Jabari Smith Jr., and Eric Gordon Monday against the Clippers. With Tate out, the starting lineup should remain the same, but Kenyon Martin Jr. had an excellent game Monday and could force his way into a start.
