MEM looks like a Playoff Shoe-in, NO no. All eyes on NO and DAL

I don't think the focus is on Memphis.  In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they win the rest of their games on their schedule:  LAC, SAC, NO, POR, and LAC again.

So here's the situation and prediction...

HOUSTON (41-36) REMAINING SCHEDULE:

TUE 05 VS SAC (42-36) Most likely win.
WED 06 VS NO (43-36) Tough game, can and MUST win.  We're 1-2 with NO in relatively close games.
SAT 09 VS LAC (44-36) Most likely win.  We're 1-1 this season in close games, but have home court advantage and they're coming off a back-to-back with the Mavs.
MON 11 VS DAL (44-37) Could win.  We're 0-2 on DAL this season, but close games.  Let's just assume the loss.
WED 13 VS MIN (45-37) Likely win.  We're 2-1.

ROCKETS FINISH OUT WITH PREDICTED 45-37 SEASON

NEW ORLEANS (44-33) REMAINING SCHEDULE:
WED 06 VS HOU (44-34) See above.
FRI 08 VS PHX (45-34) Winning record with PHX, NO wins.
SUN 10 VS MEM (45-35) They're 2-1 against MEM in close games, but I think MEM is playing better ball now as evident from their game a few days ago. MEM wins.
MON 11 VS UTA (45-36) Pretty even match this season, recently won a close one.  However, UTA wins since NO is coming off back-to-back with an important game against MEM, UTA surprise win.  UTA is also rested for a day.
WED 13 VS DAL (45-37)They've had zero luck against DAL, not even close.  DAL wins.

HORNETS FINISH OUT WITH 45-37 SEASON AND MAKE PLAYOFFS DUE TO DIVISION STANDING...SUCKS.

So In my opinion, all eyes are on that HOU/DAL game.  That could be the deal breaker there, where HOU can end up with the 46-36 overall record to unseat NO which means HOU must win every remaining game.  It's possible, but extremely difficult.

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
