Houston Rockets vs. Boston Celtics Preview: How to Watch, Injury Reports, Lineups, More

After their most thrilling victory of the season, the Houston Rockets will continue their three-game homestand Sunday night against the Boston Celtics.

HOUSTON — The Houston Rockets will play the second of a back-to-back Sunday night when they welcome the Boston Celtics to the Toyota Center. The game comes 24 hours after the Rockets had one of their most thrilling victories of the season.

With Alperen Şengün leading the way with a career-best 37 points, 14 rebounds and six assists, the Rockets began their three-game homestand with a 127-126 overtime win over the Utah Jazz Saturday night.

Sengun and the Rockets will be looking to take the momentum from their win over the Jazz into their interconference match against the Celtics, who are coming off a disappointing loss to the Denver Nuggets Friday night.

The Rockets will also try to revenge an embarrassing 145-113 loss to Boston on Jan. 13. All-star forward Jaylen Brown was too much for the Rockets to handle on the defensive end. He finished with a game-best 32 points on 11 of 15 shooting, 4 of 6 from behind the arc inside TD Garden.
