After a disappointing regular-season opener, the Houston Rockets will launch the home portion of their 2021-22 schedule when Oklahoma City visits Toyota Center on Friday night. If you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

At 17-55 and 22-50, respectively, the Rockets and Thunder finished 2021-22 with two of the Western Conference’s three worst records. While both sides added intriguing talent in the 2021 NBA draft, the consensus expectation is that each roster remains too young to make a significant turnaround this season. As such, for both sides, it’s a rare opportunity to enter a game with what they view as a clear path to victory.

Here’s when you should tune in to see the game:

  • Date: Friday, Oct. 22

  • Time: 7 p.m. Central

  • TV Channel: AT&T SportsNet Southwest, NBA League Pass

  • Live Stream: fuboTV (watch for free in Houston markets)

  • Guard: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
