The Houston Rockets will host the Denver Nuggets in today’s NBA Game of the Day.  This will be the fourth and final meeting between these teams this season.  Last night, the Nuggets won the first game of this home-and-home 101-86 and moved a game ahead of the eighth-place Rockets in the Western Conference standings.

To make sure that they remain within the top eight in the West, the Rockets need to win tonight’s game.  A Houston loss coupled with a Phoenix Suns victory over the Portland Trail Blazers would drop the Rockets down to ninth place.  Although Houston and Phoenix would have identical 32-29 records, the Suns would be the eighth-place team because they own the head-to-head tiebreaker (better conference record).

With a win, Denver would move two games ahead of Houston in the standings and clinch the tiebreaker should the Nuggets and Rockets finish the season with the same record.  A Nuggets win would also keep Denver within striking distance of the Dallas Mavericks for the fifth seed in the Western Conference playoffs.
