From this week's team to watch to the biggest matchups throughout the week, check below for the week ahead on NBA League Pass.

All times Eastern.

Team to watch: Houston Rockets

Monday, Feb. 25 vs. Atlanta, 8 p.m. | Wednesday, Feb. 27 at Charlotte, 7 p.m. | Thursday, Feb. 28 vs. Miami, 8 p.m. | Sunday, March 3 at Boston, 3:30 p.m.

The Houston Rockets are 5-5 over the last 10 games, they enter the week riding the momentum of a six-point road win it earned over Golden State without reigning MVP James Harden. Chris Paul stepped up in Harden's absence, finishing the night with 23 points, 17 assists, five rebounds and two steals.

Injuries to key players have put a damper on the Rockets' season thus far; Paul (23 games), Clint Capela (15 games) and Eric Gordon (12 games) have missed a combined 50 games. However, the team sits nine games over .500 thanks to a historic offensive tear from Harden. Since Dec. 13, the 10-year veteran has scored 30 or more points in 32 consecutive games - the second-longest such streak in NBA history (Wilt Chamberlain, 65).

Over the 32-game span, Harden has scored 40 or more points 18 times, including four games of 50-plus points and a 61-point outburst at Madison Square Garden on Jan. 23. His averages of 41.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 7.4 assists have propelled Houston to the West's fifth seed; including the game that Harden missed in Golden State, Houston is 22-11 since the streak began.

The Rockets have also benefitted from the resurgence of Kenneth Faried, who has averaged 16.0 points and 9.9 rebounds in the 14 games since signing with the team on Jan. 21. Prior to joining Houston, Faried appeared in just 12 of a possible 47 games with Brooklyn and averaged less than 10 minutes per game. The addition of Faried and trade deadline acquisition Iman Shumpert to a healthy Rockets roster makes this a dangerous team to watch during the season's stretch run.

Houston takes the floor four times this week, beginning Monday when they host the Atlanta Hawks. While Harden's status is uncertain, the matchup between the established duo of Paul and Capela versus the up-and-coming duo of Trae Young and John Collins is one to keep an eye on.

The Rockets then travel to Charlotte to take on All-Star Kemba Walker and the Hornets Wednesday before returning home to host the Heat on Thursday. Houston closes the week with a big road test when they face Boston at TD Garden Sunday afternoon.
