Houston Rockets Game 79 of 2015-16 featured the Phoenix Suns who continued their dominance of H-Town.
Continuing SCS series of all 82 games from last season next up is the Houston Rockets Game 79 of 2015-16 versus the Phoenix Suns.
The Houston Rockets added draft picks and signed free agents to improve upon an especially mediocre 41-41 campaign. Big man Dwight Howard left for Atlanta while free agents Ryan Anderson, Eric Gordon, Nene Hilario and Pablo Prigioni joined Houston in free agency.
