Full 2011-2012 Houston Rockets Schedule Has Been Released

Well, the NBA has managed to release the complete regular season schedule for next year, and the Rockets will be playing on opening night November 1st.

In Utah. What a bummer, don't all Rockets fans hate the Jazz more than the rest of the league combined? Even without Jerry Sloan, I can't stand Kirilenko and the rest of that team. Some of the schedule highlights:

↵

- Houston kicks off the year with a back-to-back on the West Coast, Utah on November 1st followed by a game in Sacramento against the Kings.

↵

- The Rockets' home opener is November 5th, also against the Jazz.

↵

- The Rockets will be playing in their first ESPN game on November 9th on the road against the Philadelphia 76ers.

↵

- They also have a nationally televised ESPN2 game on November 25th in Minnesota against the T-Wolves.

↵

According to this NBA.com schedule, those are the only two ESPN games all year for the Rockets. They're both on the road and both in November. Is something wrong here? I know the Rockets don't have any real superstars this year, but that's ridiculous.

Christmas Day games: Celtics at Knicks, Heat at Mavericks, and Bulls at Lakers.
