The Rockets put their four-game winning streak on the line today against the Boston Celtics.

The team is also seeking a season sweep over the Celtics after beating them in a 127-113 contest in late December.

A win today could put the Rockets in a tie for third place in the West if the Blazers and Thunder also lose their respective games today.

The Celtics, like the Rockets, find themselves in fifth place in their conference, looking to creep up into the top four to achieve homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

With a lot on the line in today’s game, it should be an entertaining battle.

Go Rockets!
