Watch 76ers vs. Rockets: TV channel, live stream info, start time

Through 2 Quarters

Both the Philadelphia 76ers and the Houston Rockets have kept the scorekeepers busy with 128 between them two quarters in. It’s anybody’s game, but Philadelphia is ahead 65-63.

The 76ers have been riding high on the performance of center Joel Embiid, who has posted a double-double on 22 points and ten rebounds in addition to four assists. One thing to keep an eye out for is Isaiah Joe’s foul situation as he currently sits at three.

Small forward Garrison Mathews has led the way so far for Houston, as he has 17 points along with six boards.

Houston hasn’t been much of a second-half team this year, losing 83% of the time when they were down at the break.

What to Know

After a three-game homestand, the Houston Rockets will be on the road. They will take on the Philadelphia 76ers at 7 p.m. ET Monday at Wells Fargo Center. Houston has been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with Philadelphia and is hoping to record their first win since Jan. 3 of 2020.

The contest between the Rockets and the Denver Nuggets this past Saturday was not a total blowout, but with Houston falling 124-111 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. Houston was down 99-74 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Houston’s loss came about despite a quality game from shooting guard Jalen Green, who shot 5-for-8 from downtown and finished with 29 points.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia was able to grind out a solid victory over the Brooklyn Nets this past Thursday, winning 110-102. The 76ers’ center Joel Embiid did his thing and had 34 points along with seven boards. Embiid’s night made it three games in a row in which he has scored at least 34 points.

The Rockets have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 13 point spread they are up against. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past seven games, so buyers beware.

Philadelphia’s victory lifted them to 19-16 while Houston’s defeat dropped them down to 10-27. Allowing an average of 115.19 points per game, Houston hasn’t exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We’ll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming game.
