The Rockets streak is at 21 in a row, the 2nd longest win streak in NBA history. They've moved from 10th to a share of 1st place in the Western Conference with the Lakers. Who they just happen to play this Sunday.
Can you say showdown?
This team is playing some really great, team basketball with someone different stepping up every night. Not to mention Tracy McGrady's all around play and fantastic defense anchored by 41 year old Dikembe Mutumbo who is blocking shots like he's on a mission. The pundits are still saying they can't win in the playoffs, but I'm not so sure about that. The next five games will tell; against LA, Boston, N.O., Golden State, and Phoenix.
