ESPN will host Wednesday's matchup between the Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers with tip-off set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime NBA matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription.

If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

The Rockets are bad in a tail slide after actually playing well for a bit. Injuries and players resting have been the major issue, plus it’s sort of what Houston is aiming for anyway. PJ Tucker, Eric Gordon, Victor Oladipo and Christian Wood are all dealing with injuries and could be sidelined Wednesday night. It will be tough for the Rockets to avoid losing their seventh straight game.

The Sixers will be looking to end a three-game skid against the Rockets. Philly had a mini-West Coast trip that did not go well, dropping games to the Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns and Utah Jazz. The Sixers are back home in a game that should be over by halftime. Center Joel Embiid is probable to play, so the Sixers shouldn’t be missing anyone other than Shake Milton.
