The NBA is fighting through its own lockout, but teams must assume disputes will be resolved in time for regularly-scheduled games.
The Rockets are scheduled to tip off the regular season at Utah on Nov. 1. They’ll open at home Nov. 5 against the Jazz.
As for home games, the start times have changed.
“In an effort to accommodate the wishes of the vast majority of our season ticket holders, as well as monitoring the trends from around the league, we have decided to move our start times up to 7:00 p.m.,” said Rockets Chief Executive Officer Tad Brown. “We will continue working with our fans to find ways to improve their experience at Rockets games and Toyota Center events.”
