The Houston Rockets will be taking part in the Orlando Pro Summer League from July 7-12 at the Orlando Magic’s practice court at Amway Center.  25 games will be played in the six days, and the league will feature the Orlando Magic, Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, Philadelphia 76ers, and the Utah Jazz to go along with the Rockets.

Each team will play five games over the six-day event, with a championship day being played on the final day of the league. A point system will establish the standings leading up to the final day, with seven points awarded each game based on: three points for winning the game and one point for winning a quarter (in the event of a tied quarter, each team will receive 0.5 points). In the event of ties in seeding heading into championship day, three tiebreakers will be in place: 1) total point differential; 2) total points allowed; 3) coin flip.

Here’s the Rockets schedule:
