The four lucky fans will also enjoy dinner before the game at the Toyota Center’s Red and White Bistro, have access to the Lexus Lounge and receive four $100 gift certificates to the Houston Rocket’s retail store.

“We are excited to offer XFINITY and Rockets’ fans a chance to meet and greet some of their favorite basketball players,” said Ralph Martinez, Senior Vice President for Comcast's Houston Region. “Our community and sports partnerships offer our customers unique opportunities, such as this, to get an up-close look at some of the best players in the NBA.”

Weekly winners will also be selected at random throughout the sweepstakes and rewarded with prizes including autographed basketballs and framed photos, and gift certificates to the Houston Rocket’s retail store.

To be eligible to win the XFINITY Sweepstakes package, fans must “Like” the Comcast Houston Region Facebook page, and complete the entry form. The contest began on February 1, and a winner will be chosen at random the week of February 24.
