1993–94 Houston Rockets season

The 1993–94 NBA season was the Houston Rockets' 27th season in the National Basketball Association, and their 23rd season in Houston. During the off-season, the Rockets acquired Mario Elie from the Portland Trail Blazers. The Rockets went off to a great start, winning their first fifteen games of the season to tie the 1948–49 Washington Capitols for the best unbeaten record to open a season, before the Golden State Warriors surpassed it in 2015. After losing to the Atlanta Hawks, 133–111 on the road on December 3, the Rockets won their next seven games as well, falling just one victory shy of tying the 1969–70 Knicks (23–1) for the best record with one defeat in NBA history. However, the Rockets would cool off as the season progressed, at one point losing four games in a row in January. Still, they finished first place in the Midwest Division with a 58–24 record, a franchise record that stood until the 2017-18 team recorded their 59th win. Hakeem Olajuwon averaged 27.3 points, 11.9 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.6 steals and 3.7 blocks per game, and won the league's Most Valuable Player award, ahead of David Robinson of the San Antonio Spurs and Scottie Pippen of the Chicago Bulls. Anchoring one of the league's best defenses, Olajuwon also won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award for the second consecutive year, also beating out Robinson by a narrow 23 to 22 votes. He was also named to the All-NBA First Team, NBA All-Defensive First Team, and was selected for the 1994 NBA All-Star Game. Otis Thorpe averaged 14.0 points and 10.6 rebounds per game, while Vernon Maxwell provided the team with 13.6 points, 5.1 assists and 1.6 steals per game, Kenny Smith contributed 11.6 points per game, and second-year forward Robert Horry provided with 9.9 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.In the playoffs, the Rockets defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 3–1 in the Western Conference First Round, then defeated the Phoenix Suns 4–3 in the Western Conference Semi-finals after losing the first two games, and the 5th-seeded Utah Jazz 4–1 in the Western Conference Finals.

1994–95 Houston Rockets season

The 1994–95 NBA season was the Rockets' 28th season in the National Basketball Association, and 24th season in Houston. After winning their first championship, the Rockets went on to win their first nine games of the season. However, with increased competition in the West, management felt a change was needed to win another title. On February 14, the Rockets traded Otis Thorpe to the Portland Trail Blazers for All-Star guard Clyde Drexler, a former teammate of Hakeem Olajuwon at the University of Houston, and three-point specialist Tracy Murray. The team also signed free agent Chucky Brown midway through the season. However, after the trade, the Rockets struggled in the second half of the season posting a record of 17–18 on their way to finishing third in the Midwest Division with a 47–35 record. Olajuwon averaged 27.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 3.4 blocks per game, and selected for the 1995 NBA All-Star Game, while Drexler averaged 21.4 points per game in 35 games with the Rockets after the trade. Olajuwon and Drexler were both named to the All-NBA Third Team. Vernon Maxwell provided the team with 13.3 points per game, while Kenny Smith contributed 10.4 points per game, and Robert Horry averaged 10.2 points per game.In the playoffs, the Rockets faced the 3rd-seeded Utah Jazz in the Western Conference First Round. The Jazz would take a 2–1 series lead, but the Rockets went on to win the series in five games.

2007–08 Houston Rockets season

The 2007–08 Houston Rockets season was their 41st season in the National Basketball Association and 37th in Houston. The Rockets won at least 50 games for the second straight season and made the playoffs also on the back of a 22-game winning streak, the fourth longest in the history of the NBA. The Houston Rockets came into the 2007–2008 playoffs without Yao Ming, who was still injured. This injury contributed to the Rockets' elimination by the Utah Jazz in the first round (2–4). This was the second consecutive season where the Rockets had their season ended by the Jazz. The team brought back Steve Francis, but his return was short-lived as he was active for only 10 games, starting 3 of them. It would be his last season in the NBA. Key dates prior to the start of the season: The 2007 NBA draft took place in New York City on 28 June. The free agency period began in July.

2017–18 Houston Rockets season

The 2017–18 Houston Rockets season was the 51st season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and their 47th in the Houston area. The Rockets acquired star point guard Chris Paul from the Los Angeles Clippers due to a multitude of trades after the 2017 NBA draft on June 28, 2017, as well as for being the team's first under current owner Tilman Fertitta. The Rockets also broke their franchise record for most wins in a season with their 59th win against the New Orleans Pelicans, eventually totalling 65 wins on the season. With a loss by the Warriors on March 29, the Rockets clinched the No. 1 seed for the first time in franchise history, which then followed to clinch the best record in this season following a Raptors loss against the Celtics.In the playoffs, the Rockets defeated the 8th-seeded Minnesota Timberwolves in the First Round in five games, advancing to the Conference Semifinals, where they defeated the Utah Jazz in five games. They lost the Conference Finals to the eventual NBA champion Golden State Warriors in seven games. During game seven of that series, with the chance to go to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1995, the Rockets lost 101–92 and set an NBA Playoff record by missing 27 straight 3-point shots.

2019–20 Houston Rockets season

The 2019–20 Houston Rockets season was the 53rd season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and their 49th in the Houston area.After what was an uneventful off-season for the Rockets, failing to land Houston native Jimmy Butler, the Rockets acquired star point guard Russell Westbrook from the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Chris Paul and a trove of future draft considerations, reuniting Westbrook with former Thunder teammate James Harden, who had played his first 3 seasons with the Thunder and was part of the 2011–12 Thunder team that appeared in the 2012 NBA Finals. With the San Antonio Spurs missing the playoffs for the first time since the 1996-97 season, the Rockets would hold the longest active playoff streak in the NBA qualifying every year since the 2011–12 season. In February, Westbrook and Harden became the first teammates in NBA history to average 30+ points and 5+ assists per game.

2020–21 Houston Rockets season

The 2020–21 Houston Rockets season was the 54th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and their 50th in the Houston area.On September 13, Mike D'Antoni informed the Rockets that he would not return as head coach after coaching the team for four seasons. On October 30, the Rockets hired Stephen Silas as their new head coach. On October 15, Daryl Morey resigned from his position as general manager and Rafael Stone was named as his replacement. For the first time since 2011–12, James Harden was not on the roster as he was traded to the Brooklyn Nets in a four-team deal; this reunited him with former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Kevin Durant for the first time since the 2011–12 season.Without Harden and the majority of their players lost from last year’s team, the Rockets were no longer the same team as before. They were off to an 11-10 start, but then immediately followed that up with a franchise worst 20 game losing streak, which tied for the 9th longest losing streak in NBA history and it was the longest since a record setting 28 game losing streak from Philadelphia 76ers between the late 2014–15 and the early 2015–16 season.By April 22, the Rockets were eliminated from the playoff race, missing the playoffs for the first time since the 2011–12 lockout season, and ending the NBA's longest active playoff streak at 8 years, as of the end of the season, the Portland Trail Blazers (who have made the playoffs every year since 2014) now hold the longest active playoff streak at 7 years. The Rockets finished the season last place in the league with a 17-55 record, their worst since a dreadful 14 win season in 1982–83. This season also marked the first time since the 2005–06 season that they have suffered a losing record, ending a streak of 15 years of finishing a season .500 or above.
