Suns vs. Rockets: How to watch, schedule, live stream info, game time, TV channel

Through 3 Quarters

The Houston Rockets are one quarter away from solidifying a big victory for the organization. They currently hold a 95-89 lead over the Phoenix Suns.

Center Alperen Sengun has led the way so far for Houston, as he has dropped a double-double on 17 points and 13 rebounds. Sengun does need to be careful, however, as he is in foul trouble with four.

Phoenix has been relying on center Deandre Ayton, who has 21 points along with eight boards, and shooting guard Devin Booker, who has 18 points and four assists in addition to two blocks. A double-double would be Ayton’s third in a row.

This is the first time the Rockets have been ahead going into the fourth quarter in the past six games.

What to Know

The Houston Rockets haven’t won a contest against the Phoenix Suns since Dec. 21 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought on Wednesday. Houston will head out on the road to face off against Phoenix at 9 p.m. ET at Footprint Center. The Rockets are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 117.61 points per matchup.

It’s hard to picture a worse defeat than the 135-101 bruising that Houston suffered against the Utah Jazz on Monday. Houston was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 78-53. The top scorers for Houston were small forward Kenyon Martin Jr. (16 points), small forward Jae’Sean Tate (14 points), and shooting guard Eric Gordon (14 points).

Meanwhile, the Suns picked up a 103-96 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday. Phoenix can attribute much of their success to shooting guard Devin Booker, who had 26 points, and point guard Chris Paul, who dropped a double-double on 17 points and 14 dimes along with five boards. That’s the fifth consecutive game in which Paul has had at least 11 assists.

The Rockets are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past five games, so buyers beware.

Houston’s loss took them down to 15-41 while Phoenix’s win pulled them up to 47-10. We’ll see if the Suns can repeat their recent success or if Houston bounces back and reverse their fortune.
