Round two of the Texas swing is now up for the Brooklyn Nets. It’ll be James Harden and Houston Rockets on Monday night. 

The Rockets last game, a 109-87 victory against the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night, saw the team put up a blistering 36-points in the first quarter. And it came off the second night of a back-to-back situation.

Brooklyn will have its hands full as Mike D’Antoni‘s team is second in the league in points scored (111.6 per contest, just 6.4 off the pace of the Golden State Warriors).

Kenny Atkinson’s squad is coming off a humbling thrashing at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night. The positive is that point guard Jeremy Lin makes his long-awaited return to the lineup tonight.

Opening tip-off comes your way for this one at 8 p.m. ET and can be seen on YES Network.
