The NBA Playoffs are right around the corner for the Houston Rockets, which makes it time to take a look at their 15 greatest playoff moments of all-time.

The Houston Rockets are currently 48-28 in the West, fourth in the standings just a season after making it all the way to the 2018 Western Conference Finals. They fell in seven games to the eventual NBA champion Golden State Warriors but this year, they hope to return to spread a little playoff magic à la James Harden.

Harden seems to have hit a whole other level this season, averaging 36.2 points, 7.5 assists, 6.5 rebounds and 2.1 steals per contest. He held a streak of 32 games with at least 30 points that spanned from December to February, as he looks to lead the Rockets to the promised land.

They’ve won two NBA titles thus far since their organization was established led by Hall of Fame center Hakeem Olajuwon. He’s one player who truly changed the way the game is played around the rim with his patented “Dream Shake” maneuver.  Now, with Harden leading the way the Houston Rockets hope it’s a sign of things to come.

Harden and the Rockets are on course for another rematch with Golden State. As they get healthy and prepare for the playoffs, we take a look at the top playoff moments. Here’s a look at the 15 greatest playoff moments in franchise history.
