SNC Update: Texans lose; Rockets in Asia
The Rockets have landed -- in Asia, that is.
After a 116-115 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans to open its preseason, the team boarded a 20-hour flight to the Philippines. Houston will play the Indiana Pacers at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday morning. Then the teams will travel to Taipei, Taiwan, and face each other at the Taipei Arena at 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
Our CSN Houston crew, reporter Leila Rahimi and photographer Allen Reid, is with the team and will have daily reports on our SportsNet Central shows.
