The NBA released the playoff schedules, and the Rockets kick off on Sunday night in Houston.

With the season wrapping up today, the NBA released the playoff schedule, and the Rockets will host the Blazers in game one on Sunday night at 8:30pm CST. The schedule was good news on two fronts for Houston; firstly, the team will start on Sunday rather than Saturday, giving the banged up roster an extra day of recovery, and secondly, every game (at least of those announced so far) will be broadcast on TNT, keeping the Houston audience free of the dreaded NBATV blackout.

Here is the schedule in its entirety (all times CST):

Game 1: Sunday, April 20th, 8:30 PM in Houston

Game 2: Wednesday, April 23rd: 8:30 PM in Houston

Game 3: Friday, April 25th: 9:30 PM in Portland

Game 4: Sunday, April 27th: 8:30 PM in Portland

Game 5 (if necessary): Wednesday, April 30th: TBA in Houston

Game 6 (if necessary): Friday, May 2nd: TBA in Portland

Game 7 (if necessary): Sunday, May 4th: TBA in Houston

It promises to be a good series, and we will have a lot more coverage to come here at The Dream Shake. Stay tuned.
