Houston Rockets: 7 Do-or-Die Games Remaining

The NBA Playoffs begin on April 28th.

That's 31 days away.

Each team will play an average of 17 games in those 31 days—a lot of playing in not a lot of time.

This season's Western Conference is insanely compact. The 4th-seeded Los Angeles Clippers sit just three games ahead of the 10th-seeded Phoenix Suns. One bad week can see your team slip all the way out of the playoff spots.

The Houston Rockets, currently in a tie with the Utah Jazz and Denver Nuggets for the West's 7th seed, have 15 remaining games.

Seven of those 15 are at home. Those eight road games include trips to face the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls and Dallas Mavericks. Ten of the 15 are against playoff-contending teams.

However, a select few of those 15 games have increased meaning. These seven games will shape the remainder of the Houston Rockets' season and determine whether or not they make it into the postseason.
