Covers Preview - The Houston Rockets locked up the No. 4 spot and homecourt advantage in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs on Monday. The Rockets figured to rest some of their key players when they close out the regular season by visiting the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday. Houston is taking on a Pelicans team with several key players injured but still has to find someone to guard swingman Tyreke Evans, who is closing out the season with a bang.
