Houston Rockets playoff schedule released

USA TODAY Sports

With their loss in Los Angeles last night, the Rockets face off against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round of the playoffs. What does the schedule look like?

The Houston Rockets completed a wonderful fall from the sixth seed in the Western Conference all the way down to the 8th seed in two games this week, giving them a matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. Let's take a look at their schedule.

Game 1: Sunday, April 21st at 8:30 CT in Oklahoma City (TNT)

Game 2: Wednesday, April 24th at 6:00 CT in Oklahoma City (TNT)

Game 3: Saturday, April 27th at 8:30 CT in Houston (ESPN)

Game 4: Monday, April 29th (Time TBD) in Houston

Game 5 (if needed): Wednesday, May 1st (Time TBD) in Oklahoma City

Game 6 (if needed): Friday, May 3rd (Time TBD) in Houston

Game 7 (if needed): Sunday, May 5th (Time TBD) in Oklahoma City

Welcome to the NBA Playoffs, guys. If the Rockets and Thunder go the distance, the series will take over 2 weeks to complete. About the only upside I see to this is that Royce White's bus should be able to make it between Oklahoma City and Houston with that extra time.

On a more serious level, even though it's a bummer to catch the Thunder, this series promises to be extremely exciting and the Rockets dodged the NBATV bullet. Look for a lot more playoff content on the site in the coming days.
