After enduring a seven-game losing streak in the month of January, the Houston Rockets look to turn the page on the calendar and look towards an 11-game schedule in February.
What's in store for the Rockets in the shortest month of the year?
February is a quirky month on the NBA calendar. Both the All-Star break and the trading deadline make for a hectic month, despite fewer games than any other full month.
As the Rockets look to hold onto the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference and possibly move up the ladder, seven of the 11 games they will play will be against teams that would make the playoffs if they started today.
The .541 (264-224) winning percentage of Houston's opponents points to a difficult month for Houston.
Each game will have its own challenges along the way.
