James Harden, Russell Westbrook catch Astros fever at ALCS

With a few days off before the Houston Rockets open the regular season against the Milwaukee Bucks, James Harden and Russell Westbrook were having a blast at Minute Maid Park rooting for the Astros during Game 6 of the American League Championship Series.

Sitting behind home plate, Harden and Westbrook were wearing orange Astros jerseys with their names and numbers on the back. They were shown several times on the television broadcast waving their towels along with the crowd during big moments of the game.

The Rockets traded for Westbrook during the offseason and he is doing his best to embrace his new city.

The Astros won the game dramatically in the bottom of the 9th inning when Jose Altuve blasted a two-run homer. No word if Harden and Westbrook plan to attend Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night.
