The Houston Rockets (0-2) will play the Sacramento Kings (3-1) at 7 p.m. ET tonight. The game is on AT&T Southwest if you are in the Houston area, NBC Sports Sacramento if you’re in California, and NBA League Pass for the rest of us. You can also listen to this game on SiriusXM radio.

Washington Wizards alum John Wall is expected to make his first appearance in an NBA game in two years. He will play alongside one-time college teammate DeMarcus Cousins, whom many of you wished would have been a Wizard since June 2010.

Of course, Wall is also playing alongside James Harden, who is looking to get his one-way ticket out of there. Barring him developing a better on-court chemistry with Wall than with now-Wizards point guard Russell Westbrook, it seems like the Beard will get his wish.

As for Sacramento, they have hit the season off on the right note. Rookie guard Tyrese Haliburton has started off being the type of glue guy the Kings needed where he is averaging 10.5 points and 5.2 assists so far. De’Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield are also starting their season off on the right note.

Here is your place to talk about this game with fellow Wizards fans.

Welcome back to the NBA grind, John.
