While most Rockets fans are closely monitoring Laker games and Laker fans keeping a close eye on Rockets games as well, am i the only one who thinks that HOU and LAL could BOTH eventually make the playoffs when all is said and done? Why you ask?

Well, take a look at the remaining schedule for this particular team..

@ LAC
vs BOS
vs ATL
vs CHA
@ MIl
@ CLE
@ CHI
@ NYK
vs DET
@ OKC
vs MEM
vs NYK
@ HOU
@ SAS
@ DAL
vs PHI
vs PHO
@ POR
vs BKN
vs POR
vs DEN
vs NOH
@ GSW
vs OKC
vs MIN
@ MIN
@ MEM


Based on how tough that is, i believe they will inevitably fall to the 9th spot. Guess which team this is.

Rockets have the easiest remaining western schedule. It will take a choke job to miss the playoffs, especially with how March sets up for them.

I almost hope Utah makes it in just to **** over the Mavs and the Lakers.

No one wants to see those old *** teams in the playoffs.

It's the Lakers because the last game for the Rockets is against the Lakers

I know, I was joking. (failed attempt at a joke since I thought he said it was either the rockets or lakers schedule)

Utah is too good at home to not make the playoffs.

The Rockets do have a weak remaining schedule, but then again, they just lost to the Wizards. So, you never know.

Teams like the Heat, Thunder, Nuggets etc. have also lost to the Wizards. They're not as bad as what their record indicates. Especially the way they've been playing as of late.

Being undermanned in back to back close games will not be the case for the rest of the season for us. We have help on the way. I feel T-Rob and Garcia will fit in right away

Garcia will also hit some big shots for us at some part of the season, book it. He's just that kind of player as well.

Rockets are in, it's out of Lakers/ Warriors/ Jazz to make up the final 2 spots.

And that's twice against Miami.

Didn't we have like a 96% chance last year before the collapse? A lot can happen in the 20 games
