It’s officially time!
Jabari Smith is set to make his NBA debut for the Houston Rockets against the Atlanta Hawks.
Smith had a great first game of the NBA preseason, but then he sprained his ankle in practice and missed the rest of the preseason.
Smith’s sprained ankle is officially behind him and he is set to make his debut tonight.
The Houston Rockets will face the Atlanta Hawks to open the season, creating an awkward situation as many Auburn fans are also Hawks fans.
The Hawks have some great players in Trae Young, Dejounte Murray and Clint Capela, making this a great first test for Smith and the Rockets.
The Rockets aren’t supposed to be one of the best teams in the league this season, but they’re young, so there’s always a chance this team will click and have a big year.
What time: The game will be played at 6:30 CT.
How to watch: You can watch the game on NBA League Pass (if you’re only interested in watching this game, you can try the free seven-day trial). The game can be streamed on services like SlingTV and FuboTV.
Also, for those who like to attend NBA games, the game is played at State Farm Arena, which is not too far away for many Auburn fans.
This is a special night for Smith, and Auburn fans will be happy to follow this game to see how he plays.
