Let’s talk about the first game of the preseason here.

The Washington Wizards will play the Houston Rockets tonight at 8 p.m. ET. You can listen to the game on The Team 980 AM. If you’re in Houston, it will be televised on AT&T SportsNet. Hopefully, Kevin Broom, who lives in the Lone Star state, will get his chance to watch the game tonight while we listen intently on the radio.

After all of the training and media day drama, the Wizards will head down to Spaceship city.

The result of this game won’t count in the standings of course. But at the same time, it’s important that the Wizards start the regular season off right. The sooner that happens, the better. Houston won’t be much of a title threat this season to say the least, and they also have goals that are more for the longer term. The Wizards’ postseason aspirations on the other hand, are quite short term.

Let the preseason begin. Go Wizards!
