HOUSTON – The Houston Rockets’ revised schedule is loaded with some of the top opponents in the NBA.

The team will play on national TV six out of the seven games in Orlando with game 8 against the 76ers, also likely to be played on TV.

Here’s a look at the Rockets’ schedule:

July 31 - Dallas Mavericks

One of the Rockets’ natural rivals and division rivals have been revived by superstar guard Luka Doncic, but the Slovenian star has been called “out of shape” by his trainer.

The Mavs are 1.5 games behind the Rockets in the West and will be hungry for a win.

August 2 - Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks have the best record in the NBA and the league’s reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. This one will be heated after James Harden and Antetokounmpo took shots at each other.
