Rockets vs. Pelicans game thread: Three games left

It's seven days before the playoffs start.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets need to recover from back-to-back losses against the Spurs to regain momentum before the playoffs.

That effort begins tonight against Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans, fighting for their playoff life. The Rockets have had their struggles with the Pellies, but this is a very winnable game. They then end the season with contests against the Hornets and Jazz.

Every win counts now, both for playoff seeding and for confidence heading into the postseason. A three-game winning streak sure sounds a heck of a lot better than a (potential) five-game losing streak.
