Why was the Houston Rockets and Celtics Game on TNT Blocked Out in Houston Last Night?

Why was the Houston Rockets and Celtics Game on TNT Blocked Out in Houston Last Night?

Last night we could only see the Rockets game on the At & T Sports Network. It was blacked out on TNT and this has never happened before. Usually the Rockets are only blacked out on the NBA network. Can somene explain to me why this happened and will this be the norm because it's disappointing to not see the hometeam on the national channels.

Hello StacyR1, It looks like your issue falls under your regions blackout rules. A blackout is when sports teams and leagues (or schools and conferences) prohibit certain games from being seen on certain channels due to ticket sales or games being carried on other channels. I apologize for the inconvenience, these rules are set by the networks in your region.
