The NBA regular season is a treat in itself for basketball fans. However, the real action begins with the NBA Playoffs and the journey to the NBA Finals. The Association has one of the longest postseasons in all of sports with eight teams from both the Western and Eastern Conference making the playoffs and playing in a host of best-of-seven series leading up to the Finals.

Will the Houston Rockets reach the 2018-19 NBA Western Conference Finals?

  • Coach: Mike D’Antoni
  • 2017-18 record: 65-17 (1st)
  • Pressure is on: Chris Paul missed the most critical games of the most critical series, when the Rockets at least had a fighting chance of knocking off the Warriors. He fell short too many times with the Clippers, so he has motivation this season.

    Rising star: Eric Gordon has been in the conversation for sixth man of the year perennially but how will he handle Carmelo Anthony’s arrival and how does that affect their shot distribution?

    Skinny: There aren’t many questions about the Rockets, who came closest to dethroning the champion Warriors, but fell short. They’ll have to ramp up their defensive effort when it counts. Getting home-court advantage was critical for them and that should be their entire focus in the regular season.
