Can The Rockets’ Streak Reach 33?

Posted by

No doubt, Houston Rockets is the hottest basketball team at that the moment. Since they lost in January 27 to Jazz, since then they had 19 straight wins. Only the Lakers and Bucks of 1971-1972 have surpassed the Rocket’s winning streak. But with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain in the team, I wouldn’t be surprised that it did not last.

Will the 2008 Rockets even surpass the record of 33 wins by the Lakers without any defeat? Its not impossible. Here is the list of the teams the Rocks will play against to achieve it: Hawks, Bobcats, Lakers, Celtics, Hornets, Warriors, Suns, Kings, Timberwolves, Spurs, Kings, Trail Blazers, Sonics, Clippers and Sonics.

The line-up is threatening to the Rocket’s winning streak. 7 out of 15 teams have a .500 and are potential playoff teams. 4 of these have better records and more talent. Any time any of these teams can win, even the teams below the .500 ranking.

So it’s not likely that the Rockets will go on winning and hit their 34 mark. They are lucky if they win 10 out of the 15 games. The Rockets is a great team with a good momentum at the moment. But facing 5 teams in a stretch wherein anyone could win this year’s NBA title is a tough act to follow. Though the Rockets defeated the Bobcats and Hawks with their record of 21-0, they will quickly lose to the Celtics and Lakers. Both LA and Boston have too much power to be defeated.
