The NBA denied a request by the Rockets to move Tuesday’s scheduled game with the Cleveland Cavaliers to an earlier start time to minimize a potential conflict with Game 6 of the World Series, according to a source.

The tipoff for Houston’s matchup with the defending champion Cavaliers is 7:10 p.m. ET. The first pitch of Game 6 between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians is set for 8:08 p.m. ET.
