The new season is fast approaching for the Houston Rockets and there are several key matchups that you can’t miss.

The Houston Rockets are coming off one of the best seasons in the history of the franchise. They retooled a little bit this offseason while also re-signing some of their important free agents, Chris Paul and Clint Capela.

They also added former All-Star Carmelo Anthony, someone the team has pursued quite awhile over the years. He will attempt to turn back the clock a little bit and contribute to the team who finished with the best record in the league a season ago.

Now, as we transition to the next season, the NBA schedule was released just yesterday. There are some key matchups that we can look forward to as the Rockets look to prove themselves to the rest of the league once again after many experts predict that the team will be worse this year.

Let’s take a look at a few that you need to watch during the 2018-19 season:
