8 PM Sportsnet/Sportsnet 360

Daryl Morey and the Houston Rockets have had a couple of successful years in terms of building their team, turning a handful of assets and cap space into the All-Star duo of James Harden and Dwight Howard. While they are still figuring things out in Houston, they represent a very tough test for the visiting Raptors this evening.

Toronto is coming off of a blowout victory over the Utah Jazz at home on Saturday in which their bench was a huge advantage. Tyler Hansrbough, Terrence Ross and the rest of the Raptors second unit is going to need to bring the same energy into Houston in T.O is going to have a shot at taking down the mighty Rockets.
