The Houston Rockets finally know who their second round opponent will be.

The Rockets will face Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference Semifinals after the Clippers finished off the Spurs in seven games Saturday night. Game One starts this Monday, May 4th, at 8:30 PM at the Toyota Center.

The Rockets and Clippers have the same record but the Rockets have home court advantage by virtue of the division winner tiebreaker.

The Rockets were 2-2 against the Clippers this season. The good news for Houston is Dwight Howard did not play in any of those games. James Harden was held under his scoring average in the four games, posting 20.0 points on just 35.8 percent shooting.
