2018 Rockets Season Preview
You’ve got to give it to the Houston Rockets. A couple years back all the buzz in the west was centered on Golden State, Oklahoma City, San Antonio and the Clippers. But little by little the Rockets crept up, surpassed all but one, and has now firmly settled in as the second-best team in the West. Of course, they now need to play, but play they will with new point guard addition, Chris Paul. Chris Paul and James Harden in the backcourt. Few saw this coming. Clint Capela will be catching lob dunks, and PJ Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute are significant upgrades for the Rocket’s perimeter defense. Add in Sixth Man of the Year, Eric Gordon, and this squad is a sure-fire contender. So, where’s the weakness? Well, defense is one. The Houston Rockets have been decent to average, and to get over the Warriors they will need to convert themselves into a Top 10 NBA defensive team. That is no small feat, especially with Harden who tends to disappear from time to time on the defensive end. If Paul can get the rest of the team to buy in, as he tends to do, this will be an awesome year for Houston. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center or supporting the Rockets on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all 2017-2018 Houston Rockets tickets, including home and away games.

Rockets vs. Timberwolves
These two teams have met over 95 times throughout the years with the Rockets holding the edge. The highlight of this matchup came in 1997 when both teams met in the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs. The Rockets-T’Wolves rivalry will only continue to get better in the years to come.
With two teams that play in the same state and have taken turns dominating the Western Conference, it is only natural for it to become a fierce rivalry. Superstars like as Hakeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley, David Robinson, and Tim Duncan have graced this rivalry which has only heightened the significance of this matchup. The highlight of the rivalry came when both teams met in the 1995 Western Conference Finals on the Rockets way to an NBA title.
This rivalry has evolved into one of the better matchups in the NBA. As in-state foes, the intensity level is always at its highest when the Rockets and Mavs meet. This matchup reached its climax in 2005 when the teams faced each other in the playoffs. With both teams playing in the Western Conference and the bitterness of being regional neighbors, this rivalry will only heighten in future seasons.
Rockets vs. Trail Blazers
With over 185 total games between these two teams with the Rockets holding the edge in the series matchup, there is no secret as to who has the upper hand thus far. Throughout the years, the two teams have faced each other in the playoffs multiple times with the Rockets again dominating. This matchup will only become more heated in upcoming years as the Rockets become a premier team in the NBA once again.

2016 Houston Rockets Season Preview
Last season the Houston Rockets ended with a 41-41 record; this was disappointing to fans after they were able to pull off one of the biggest comebacks in the 2014 NBA playoffs. After coaching the Rockets for 5 seasons, Kevin McHale was fired and replaced with Mike D’Antoni. D’Antoni will be coming into a team with a strong offense and one of the best players in the league, James Harden, as well as talented shooters: Trevor Ariza, Patrick Beverly and Corey Brewer. Last season, Harden averaged a career high of 29 points per game and will be crucial to the Houston Rockets roster this season but time will tell how D’Antoni will deal with Harden’s one-on-one offensive style. Houston’s defense will be a challenge as they enter the 2016-2017 season, as there is a need for improvement. Patrick Beverly and Clint Cappella are expected to be the anchors for the Rockets’ defense. As the 2016 season begins the team will need to develop chemistry between players as they go forward into hopefully a successful year.
2015 Houston Rockets Season Preview
The Houston Rockets had a breakthrough season last year, winning their first NBA playoff series since 2008, and reached the Western Conference finals for the first time since 1997. The Rockets enter the 2015 season looking to take that next step towards a 3rd NBA title. The core of the 2015 Houston Rockets roster remains the same as a season ago, with the focus of the team on the star duo of James Harden and Dwight Howard. The Rockets will hope for increased production out of Trevor Ariza, to make up for the hole left by the departure of Josh Smith. But the hopes of the Rockets will once again rise and fall with the play of James Harden. Harden has evolved into one of the premier players in the NBA and will look to guide Houston through a relentless Western Conference schedule.
2014 Houston Rockets Season Preview
There were few teams in the league that had as much hype as the Houston Rockets coming into 2013. Superstar big man Dwight Howard had agreed to leave Los Angeles and team up with Jeremy Lin and James Harden in Houston. Add in front court help from Chandler Parsons and the Rockets looked poised to crack the top 3 in the Western Conference. Houston had a solid season, but ended up losing a hard-fought first round playoff series with the Portland Trailblazers to end their title run. The Rockets enter the 2014 NBA schedule with a slightly adjusted roster. Jeremy Lin is gone, as is Parsons. Houston signed veterans Trever Ariza and Jason Terry, but will put their title hopes on the duo of James Harden and Dwight Howard. If the two superstars can click in Houston, the Rockets will easily match their 54 wins from a season ago and be right in the thick of the Western Conference playoffs once again.
2013 Houston Rockets Season Preview
The offseason was an exciting one for the Rockets as they locked down the gem of the free agent market in big man Dwight Howard. The center opted out of staying in L.A. to give it a go in Houston around Jeremy Lin, Chandler Parsons and James Harden. The Rockets nabbed the final place in the Western Conference Playoffs last season but bowed out to the Thunder in round 1. This year, along with Howard, they added Ronnie Brewer to an already potent team. The Rockets open the season at home against the Mavericks before a west coast road trip. Other key home games are vs. Lakers on Nov. 7, vs. Bulls on Dec. 18, vs. New York on Jan. 3. The Rockets will be on the national stage on Christmas Day when they play in San Antonio against the Spurs.
2012 Houston Rockets Season Preview
The Rockets are looking forward to a year where they can put up the team stats they dished in 2010-11—first in assists, third in points per game, seventh in rebounds—and make the playoffs. They’re past the Yao Ming era, and must rely on a new group of young players like guards Kevin Marchtin and Kyle Lowery to lead the team. While their speedy guard combo likes to dish, Luis Scola is an All-Star center that has the middle clogged, and is now the leader of a front court that ranked seventh in the league in rebounds. If Houston can contain other teams defensively a bit more—they were 22nd in points allowed last year—the Rockets are one of the teams that could be in for bigger things in 2012.
2011 Houston Rockets Season Preview
Despite an injury-plagued campaign last season, the Houston Rockets managed to almost sneak into the playoffs, but fell just short of securing the eighth seed in the Western Conference. The Rockets return this year with a youthful lineup and several new additions in the hopes of returning to the postseason once again. One of the biggest moves the Rockets made during the offseason was signing center Brad Miller. The addition of Miller may prove beneficial as it was recently announced that Yao Ming would be limited to just 24 minutes a game after a season-ending injury a year ago. The Rockets will also be aided by one of the up-and-coming guards in the league, Aaron Brooks. Along with Brooks, Luis Scola is coming off an impressive showing in the FIBA World Championships, and leading scorer Kevin Martin is back as well. Although the core of the team is young, their youth may also be a hindrance. There are eight players on the roster under 25, and the lack of experience may hurt them down the stretch.
2010 Houston Rockets Season Preview
There is a new sheriff in-town for the Houston Rockets, and his name is Trevor Ariza. During the offseason the Rockets essentially swapped with the Los Angeles Lakers; giving up Ron Artest and signing free agent Ariza. If Ariza can bring the same spark to Houston that he provided in L.A., then look for the scrappy Rockets squad to go deeper in the playoffs than they did last season.
2009 Houston Rockets Season Preview
The Houston Rockets are one of the most passionate teams in the NBA. Houston Rockets players are devoted and loyal to the succcess of the team as well as its teammates, most notably its current list of players Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming and Steve Francis. The Rockets are armed and dangerous with a blend of defense and offense that could earn them 60+ wins this season. Look out for this dedicated Houston team, as fans are expecting an enthusiastic and exciting season this year.
