Scott Halleran

The Rockets leapfrogged the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference standings, landing in sixth place.

After winning seven of their last nine games, the Houston Rockets have snagged the No. 6 spot in the Western Conference standings for the time being.

Houston (18-14) holds a slim half-game lead over the Denver Nuggets (18-15) for sixth place, and trails the No. 4 Golden State Warriors (22-10) by four games.

The Oklahoma City Thunder (24-7) have reclaimed the top spot in the conference after the Los Angeles Clippers (25-8) had their 17-game winning streak snapped and lost two games in a row. The conference's hottest team is the San Antonio Spurs (26-8) who have won eight of their last 10 games and have rattled off seven wins in a row, a streak that has them sitting in the No. 2 spot in the Western Conference standings.

The Rockets are currently in third place in the Midwest Division, trailing the Spurs by seven games and the second place Memphis Grizzlies by 3.5 games.
