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 Portland Trail Blazers in Week 17 of the regular season on Thursday, February 25 at 10:30 p.m. EST from the Moda Center in Oregon. Read on to see where fans can watch and listen to a live stream of the highly-anticipated Thursday evening basketball game online and catch up-to-date feeds and coverage on highlight plays and scores.
Now heading into mid-season, Portland maintains a rather impressive top spot in Marc Stein's official NBA power rankings for ESPN.com, while Houston now lags a bit behind (out of a total 30 teams):
Trail Blazers (9): "Hell hath no fury like a Dame scorned (by Western Conference coaches). So much for that 2-9 career record for All-Star snub Damian Lillard against Steph Curry that we were talking about last week. The conversation now has to be about how the Lillard-led Blazers just became the first of five teams to beat the mighty Warriors this season andfollow that up with a win in their next game."
Record: 30-27 (6th 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: 28-29 (9th in Western Conference).
