After meeting for more than seven hours on Monday, NBA commissioner David Stern emerged from the negotiations and announced that the first two weeks of the NBA regular season has been cancelled. The league and the players' association met for most of Sunday and Monday but couldn't close enough of the gap to save the start of the regular season.
This announcement means that the Houston Rockets first seven games will be cancelled. The Rockets lose four road games including the season opener at Utah on Nov 1. Other road games include Sacramento, Indiana and Philadelphia. Houston also loses three home games including the Nov 5 home opener against Utah as well as home dates against Golden State and Los Angeles.
