The Houston Rockets are clinging to their playoff lives and have a crucial matchup with the Miami Heat on Sunday.
The Houston Rockets look for their second consecutive win and aren't ready to give up on the playoffs chase just yet. Houston finally snapped a six-game losing streak on Saturday with a 99-96 win over Golden State. The Rockets are currently in 10th place in the Western Conference Standings but just one game behind eighth place Utah for the final playoff spot with two games left to play.
There is virtually no margin for error for the Rockets but Miami may be without some key players for Sunday's matchup. LeBron James and Chris Bosh sat out Saturday's loss to the Washington Wizards and Dwyane Wade left the game with a finger injury. James is expected to play on Sunday but the status of Wade and Bosh has yet to be determined.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, April 22, 6:00 p.m. ET
Location: American Airlines Arena, Miami, Florida
TV: NBA TV, Fox Sports Houston
Radio: 610 AM, 96.5 FM and 850 AM
