(SportsRadio 610) -- The Rockets officially have a schedule for the restart of the NBA season.

Houston is among 22 teams resuming the season at Disney facilities in Orlando, Florida. 

Each team will play eight games to determine seeding for the playoffs. 

The Rockets' first game back is against the I-45 rival Dallas Mavericks. They will play July 31 at 8 p.m. CT.

As Ben DuBose of The Rockets Wire notes, the game has significant implications. 

The sixth-seed Rockets would take a 2.5-game lead and the tiebreaker over seventh-seed Dallas. If they lose, it's only a half-game lead and the Mavs hold the tiebreaker. 

Here is a look at the Rockets' complete:

July 31: Mavericks (8 p.m. CT)

Aug. 2: Bucks (7:30 p.m. CT)

Aug. 4: Trail Blazers (8 p.m. CT)

Aug. 6: Lakers (8 p.m. CT)

Aug. 9: Kings (7 p.m. CT)

Aug. 11: Spurs (1 p.m. CT)

Aug. 12: Pacers (3 p.m. CT)

Aug. 14: 76ers (TBD)

The last time the Rockets were on the court, they snapped a four-game losing streak with a win against the Minnesota Timberwolves at Toyota Center.
