The Houston Rockets got off to rocky start to their six-game western conference road trip by losing their first game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Five games remain against teams directly above and below them in the standings and Kevin McHale will need his top players like Luis Scola, Kevin Martin and Kyle Lowry lead them into some big victories to climb the standings.
The road trip continues in Denver as the Nuggets are No. 4 in the Western Conference while Houston currently sits just outside the playoffs in the No. 9 spot.
