Basketball's back for the official 2015-2016 NBA season, so get ready, MstarsNews readers!
The Houston Rockets battle it out on the court against the Utah Jazz in Week 17 of the regular season on Tuesday, February 23 at 9:00 p.m. EST from the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City. Read on to see where fans can watch and listen to a live stream of the highly-anticipated Tuesday evening basketball game online and catch up-to-date feeds and coverage on highlight plays and scores.
Now heading into mid-season, Utah maintains a rather impressive top spot in Marc Stein's official NBA power rankings for ESPN.com, while Houston lags just a bit behind (out of a total 30 teams):
Jazz (10): "Rudy Gobert is one of just three players in the whole league, along with DeAndre Jordan and Hassan Whiteside, who can claim to average at least 10 PPG, 10 RPG and 2 BPG. The French Rejection - or Stifle Tower, if you insist, @DJJazzyJody - is also becoming one of the more entertaining Twitter follows on the NBA map, as he proved again Sunday night with this post-game blast."
Record: 27-28 (9th in Western Conference).
Rockets (17): "After they elected not to trade Dwight Howard, this is a huge week for the Rockets. The team pegged to finish No. 3 in the West by ESPN Forecast has to visit both Utah and Portland in the increasingly tight race for the last few playoff spots in the West, with Portland just one win away from clinching the head-to-head tiebreak just like the Blazers did Sunday night against the Jazz."
Record: 28-28 (8th in Western Conference).
