Just something I wanted to bring up because I read a few comments that people were worried about this set of games.
Specifically, it's one day of rest after a home game against the Nets on Jan 26.
Jan 28 @Utah
Jan 30 @Denver
That's a good sign to me because both of the high altitude away games are next to each other, with a rest day, so ideally the Rockets could fly to Utah right after the Nets, or the morning of the 27th so that they'd have a full day to acclimate to the altitude ("If you are coming straight from sea level, spend at least 24 hours being completely lazy with plenty of sleep and no strenuous activity."), which I think might be particularly vital to Harden because of his slight asthma problems when he was younger. And then if they go straight to Denver after Utah, that means that the previous two day's acclimatization carries over to the higher altitude Denver; which is what you're supposed to do to acclimate anyways, going from lower to higher elevation.
Which basically boils down to this chart:
Utah's last game before the Rockets is on Jan 26 versus the Pacers (2 days rest). Denver's last game before the Rockets is, ironically, also the Pacers, but on Jan 28 (1 day rest). Both of these, when pared with Houston's one day rest between these games, are among the lowest possible home court advantage % when at high altitude (53.3%, actually better than sea level advantage, and 63.9%, not terribly different from middle altitude advantage).
So honestly, I think the Rockets kind of lucked out, schedule-wise.
I just hope they still have enough gas in the tank by the end of Jan that they can take advantage of it.
