3 key matchups to watch this year for the Houston Rockets
Rockets at Celtics – March 3 at 2:30 p.m. CT
The Rockets and Celtics played two of the more entertaining games of the year last season when they met on December 28 and March 3. They split the season series and both were down to the wire.
This year, they play a primetime Sunday afternoon game on ABC. It will be a great chance for the Rockets to see how they match up with a very great team in the Eastern Conference. If all goes according to most projections, the Celtics will be able to make their way to the NBA Finals this season.
The Rockets will be looking to meet them there. They obviously have to make it past the beast that is the Golden State Warriors (and that’s an understatement), but if they manage to do that, the Celtics will likely be waiting in the Finals. This game will be a good chance for the Rockets to see where they are with the rest of the league apart from the Warriors.
Let’s hope this game is just as fun to watch as the two against Boston last year. Both teams will be fully healthy, hopefully, and ready to challenge the rest of the NBA.
