Atlanta Hawks vs. Houston Rockets, game on the way to the playoffs. The Rockets are much closer to the playoffs than anyone, so far they are the third team in the Western Conference with a good record. The season of the Rockets did not have a good start but until now they have recovered and continue winning games to reach the playoffs.
