HOUSTON ROCKETS


The Rockets’ franchise was founded in 1967 in San Diego. After four seasons, the franchise relocated to its current home in Houston. The Rockets set a then-NBA record for losses in their inaugural season. They won a coin toss for the first overall pick in the 1968 NBA draft. The selection of Elvin Hayes would change the course of the franchise.

Houston has had a long history of success and has two NBA titles to its credit. The Rockets have made the postseason in 34 of 53 NBA seasons and continue to be a perennial playoff team.

The Rockets are featured often in nationally televised NBA games on ABC, ESPN, ESPN+, and TNT. Regional broadcasts can be watched on TV on AT&T Sportsnet Southwest. Fans can watch the complete Houston Rockets schedule via live stream using the AT&T Sportsnet app or using a streaming service. Games are also available via live streaming by visiting NBA.tv.

HOME OF THE ROCKETS


Upon moving to Houston in 1971, the Rockets didn’t have an official home playing games in the old Astrodome, Sam Houston Coliseum, and Hofheinz Pavillion. Houston began playing at The Summit, which was later renamed the Compaq Center, in 1975.

Prior to the 2003-04 season, the Rockets moved into their current home – the Toyota Center. The arena will seat 18,055 fans for Rockets’ home games.

CHAMPIONSHIP HISTORY


The Rockets first made the playoffs in Houston in 1974-75 back when they were in the Eastern Conference. Houston made the NBA Finals in 1981 and in 1986 but lost both times.

Houston has won seven division titles (1977, 1986, 1993, 1994, 2015, 2018, and 2019). The Rockets moved to the Western Conference in 1981 and since have won four conference titles (1981, 1986, 1994, and 1995). Houston won back-to-back NBA championships in 1994 and 1995.

BEST OF THE ROCKETS


The Rockets have had some great players through the years. Hakeem Olajuwon is a Hall of Famer who is the franchise’s all-time leading scorer (26,511), rebounder (13,382), shot blocker (3,740), and leader in steals (2,088). Olajuwon was the first overall pick in the 1984 NBA draft and was a 12-time All-Star. He made the All-NBA First Team six times and led Houston to back-to-back NBA titles in ’94 and ’95. He was also the NBA Finals MVP both of those years. Olajuwon won the league MVP in 1994 after averaging 27.3 points, 11.9 rebounds, and 3.7 blocks per game.

Calvin Murphy was a second-round pick of the San Diego Rockets who played his entire 14-year NBA career with the franchise. He is second to Olajuwon in scoring (17,949) and is the franchise leader in assists (4,402). At just 5-feet-9-inches tall, Murphy was one of the league’s best point guards. He made the All-Star game in 1979 and finished his career with averages of 17.9 points and 4.4 assists per game.

Elvin Hayes was the first overall pick in the 1968 NBA draft. Hayes spent nine seasons with the Rockets in two different stints. He was a 12-time All-Star selection making it in every year from 1969 to 1980. Hayes would make the All-Rookie team in 1969, the same year he led the NBA in scoring with 28.4 points per game. Hayes retired in 1984 after averaging 21.0 points and 12.5 rebounds per game.
