Rockets to host Thunder on Christmas

Russell Westbrook and James Harden will square off on Christmas.

The Houston Rockets will host the Oklahoma City Thunder on Christmas Day, according to a report from Tim MacMahon of ESPN.

The Thunder hosted the Rockets this past season on Christmas.

Carmelo Anthony, who played for the Thunder in 2017-18, will sign a one-year deal with Houston when he returns from Africa. The Thunder traded Anthony to the Atlanta Hawks, who then waived Anthony.

The game will have a lot of star power in it. 2018 MVP James Harden and his backcourt mate Chris Paul versus 2017 MVP Russell Westbrook and Paul George.
