Huge game on the schedule tonight, with the Houston Rockets taking on the Denver Nuggets at the Toyota Center. Lose tonight and any minor hope (and it was already pretty minor) of snagging the two seed is out the window. A loss also puts them in a disadvantageous position for the three seed.
The Rockets have played well against Denver over the last few seasons, though the Nuggets finally got some revenge the last time these two teams met. We’ll see if that was a one-off or if the Nuggets can get a streak rolling against Houston.
Kenneth Faried and Gerald Green will both be out again tonight for the Rockets, with Faried expected to miss even more time after this.
Tonight’s game is the prime time contest on NBATV, and we’ll, as always, be watching it with you every step of the way.
Don’t forget AK’s preview. Go Rockets!
