Houston Rockets Playoff Details
The Houston Rockets have multiple championships to their name, but their playoff history is a fascinating one regardless of individual season results. Some of the more fun teams in the history of the league have worn the Rockets red in the playoffs, including those that have lifted the trophy at the end of the season.
Houston was able to celebrate back-to-back NBA championships in the 1990s, thanks to the efforts of a supremely talented but maybe underrated roster, historically speaking. These Rockets were, of course, led by Hakeem Olajuwon. The Nigerian big man was one of the best players in the league during his era and is one of the greatest big men to ever play the game. Hakeem’s set of moves in the low post were virtually unguardable, as he was able to score in more ways than it should be possible to score from so close to the basket.
The Rockets won their first ever title in 1994, when they defeated the New York Knicks in seven games in the NBA Finals. That series featured Olajuwon getting the better of fellow legendary center Patrick Ewing, with Olajuwon scoring 25 points or more in four of the seven games in the series. Hakeem was the regular season MVP of the league, the NBA Finals MVP, and the league’s Defensive Player of the Year in that season.
Houston then won a second straight title in 1995, when they swept the Orlando Magic to get the job done. The Rockets used their experience to get the better of a Magic team that was ahead of schedule just reaching the Finals behind their young stars, Shaquille O’Neal and Penny Hardaway. Olajuwon closed out the series with back-to-back 30-plus point games to secure Finals MVP honors.
Other fun Rockets teams during their postseason era have included the Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming-led Rockets of the 2000s, as well as the three-point shooting James Harden-led squads of the 2010s. Each of those teams brought a personality to the playoffs that made things difficult on their rivals in those eras, which have included the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors.
