this is just a poll of what one thinks of the words 'the streak'

all of 3 of those events really did happen.

who is LOF? I don't hate a person named LOF. Is that his initials?

Lester Olajuwon Feigen?

I went to the 22nd game against the Lakers. Was an awesome experience, especially watching Battier up close defending Kobe Bryant. Truly makes you appreciate a great perimeter defender. Of course I also went to the 23rd game where we lost to the Celtics. Still, that two year period were some of the brightest in recent years between the streak and the 2009 playoff run. Makes me miss Yao, Chuck, Battier, Landry, Scola and even Rafer occasionally.

This 22-win streak is really getting old. It's a great piece of Rockets history but c'mon tinman, it's not an NBA record. Lakers own that and it's one of the NBA records that it will probably never be broken, not only in NBA but in any professional team sports.

The 2007-08 Houston Rockets season was their 41st season in the National Basketball Association and 37th in Houston. The Rockets won at least 50 games for the second straight season and made the playoffs also on the back of a 22 game winning streak, the second longest in the history of the NBA. The Houston Rockets came into the 2007-2008 playoffs without Yao Ming, who was still injured.

Houston made it into the 1st round and was subsequently eliminated by Utah 4-2

Although Novak was not being paid as much as he is post-Linsanity. He is remembered for hitting clutch shots to maintain this epic streak.





Fortunately for Steve Novak he finally got his due when Jeremy Lin exploited the abilities of discount triple-check.



I've been told I can't post hot chicks, but I think a Rocket Cheerleader is acceptable unless told otherwise.

Sometimes you just have to walk away and just let someone hold onto their memories. Show some love and just walk away!

Why does it matter what "The Streak" means to someone? It's not like real fans knew everything that happened before they themselves became fans. These threads serve no purpose but to drive down the quality of the site and drive away potential real fans. This is so immature.

How about the 15-0 and 22-1 streaks to start the 93-94 season? No to take anything away from 2008, but the Rockets actually won a championship in 1994, so in some ways I still consider it a more important streak.
