The Houston Rockets have officially completed a perfect month of February. Now, as they head into March, the schedule will have a little more “Madness.”
The Houston Rockets just finished one of the best months in franchise history. They went a perfect 12-0 for February and haven’t lost since January 26.
In a fitting fashion, the schedule for next month definitely brings some March Madness for the Rockets. They will play an incredible 10 of their 15 games against playoff teams, including the two top teams in the East and several of the top teams in the West.
In February, the Rockets were tested but still pushed through. They still managed wins against the Spurs, Cavs, Heat, Nuggets (x2), Timberwolves (x2), Jazz and of course the Clippers last night. Those are all teams bidding for a playoff spot.
While March has just one more playoff team to play against, the quality of opponents is definitely higher. Let’s take a look at the full schedule:
The end of the month certainly eases up, but the beginning is absolutely brutal. The back-to-back away games in OKC and then in Milwaukee should certainly be interesting.
If any team can get through this tough stretch, though, it’s the Rockets. They’ve already shown that they can win back-to-backs as they swept one of the hardest (Denver then Utah). All-in-all, they won three back-to-backs and will face three more in March.
What do you think the record of the Rockets will be after this month? Let us know in the tweet below and we’ll retweet you if you’re right!
