NBA: Playoffs-San Antonio Spurs at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockets schedule was released at 5 PM CT, and while we could fill a few out already, we now know who the Rockets play, where they play them, and where they will beat them.

Houston has 40 nationally-televised games this year, which is a victory for Rockets fans across the country. We only have to rely on mediocre League Pass for the other fourty-two games.

The league this year decided to cut back-to-backs as much as possible. So, what does the start of Houston’s schedule look like?

A back-to-back, of course!

After opening night on October 17 against the Warriors, the Rockets take a trip north to Sacramento to face the Kings the following night. Houston’s home opener pits the Rockets against Dallas for the second straight year on October 21, and the season ends for Houston on April 11, where the Rockets take their second visit to California’s capital.

Ironically, the Kings season begins and ends in the same place, a home loss to the Rockets. Hopefully.

What do you think of the Rockets schedule and which games are you looking forward to the most?
