The Houston Rockets will be facing eight different teams when their season resumes on July 31st. Here’s a breakdown of how they stack up with each one.

The NBA schedule recently was released that details the remaining eight regular season games for the Houston Rockets.  When games pick back up, James Harden and company will be right in the thick of things in the Western Conference, and they now know who they will be facing as they look to secure a higher seed going into the playoffs.

According to Ben Dowsett of Forbes Sports, the schedules were tweaked from what was originally thought.

On deck for Mike D’Antoni’s squad are the following opponents: The Mavericks, Bucks, Trail Blazers, Lakers, Kings, Spurs, Pacers and 76ers. It’s important to remember that every team will have a tougher schedule now that the bottom eight teams have been eliminated from contention.

With two fresh superstars in Harden and Russell Westbrook training hard and ready to go, the pressure will be on Houston to reach their ultimate goal of finally taking the NBA championship back to the city.

Here’s a look at how the Houston Rockets have matched up with each of these opponents recently and what to expect.
