The Houston Rockets now know when they will play the first four games. The schedule for the first-round matchup was just released.
The Rockets will start their championship run on Tuesday, August the 18th at 5:30 CT and game two will be at 2:30 on the 20th. With no travel and no homecourt advantage, the Rockets will play every other day. Instead of the normal three sometimes four days in between playoff games.
The one silver lining in all of this is the fact that the Rockets don’t play Monday and that will give Russell Westbrook on an extra day to hopefully be back by game 3.
