And they did it against the hated Dallas Mavericks, no less...
It's been 20 years since the Rockets' last NBA championship, and while as a fan I'd love to see them win it all again this season, I just don't see that happening. The team has suffered some key injuries, they collectively aren't great at the free throw line, they don't match up well with either of their possible second round opponents (LA Clippers or San Antonio Spurs), and one gets the feeling that this is just Golden State's year anyway.
Still, this is a team that is fun to watch, it's good to see the local team have some success in the postseason once again, and hey... anything can happen in the postseason, right?
Speaking of that 1995 championship: do yourself a favor and read the Houston Press's wonderful oral history of that amazing playoff run.
