As today is April 26th, let’s take a look at some of the best performances in Houston Rockets history that fell on the same date.
One of the few positives about the NBA’s hiatus is that it’s allowed players to get recognition that they wouldn’t otherwise receive, especially at this time of the year. There’s been additional coverage of many of the current and former Houston Rockets players’ best games over the course of their careers, which was long overdue. Now is the perfect time to recognize these performances, since we don’t have any live basketball right now.
The Rockets have had an abundance of Hall of Fame players who have turned in several great games in the 53-year history of the franchise, and those performances bring back positive memories for Rockets fans. We’ve seen rare, monumental feats, such as Hakeem Olajuwon‘s quadruple-double and the 1994-95 team becoming the first sixth-seed to win the NBA championship.
The Rockets have also had many great moments that fell on April 26th, ranging from highly efficient shooting performances from unheralded players to near triple-doubles from non-point guards. Let’s take a deeper dive into some of the best individual games that fell on today’s date.
