    TIME (ET) SHOW EPISODE DESCRIPTION

    7:30 AM Old School Monday Rockets/SuperSonics, 1987 Western Conference Semifinals - Game 6

    Rockets C Hakeem Olajuwon delivered an incredible performance with 49 points and 25 rebounds in a Double-OT classic against the SuperSonics.

    10:00 AM Old School Monday Clippers/Rockets, 1993 Western Conference 1st Round - Game 5

    Hakeem Olajuwon's 31 points and 21 rebounds were too much for the Clippers, as the Rockets go on to win the deciding game.


    12:00 PM Old School Monday Suns/Rockets, 1994 Western Conference Semifinals - Game 7

    Rockets C Hakeem Olajuwon proved to be too much for Phoenix as he dominated with 37 points and 17 rebounds, knocking the Suns out of the Playoffs.

    2:00 PM Old School Monday Knicks/Rockets, 1994 NBA Finals - Game 6

    Hakeem Olajuwon led Houston with 30 points, and had a game-saving block on Knicks G John Starks in the closing seconds.

    4:00 PM Old School Monday Knicks/Rockets, 1994 NBA Finals - Game 7

    Rockets C Hakeem Olajuwon finished off the Knicks with 25 points, and rookie G Sam Cassell chipped in with 13 points off the bench.

    9:00 PM Old School Monday Magic/Rockets, 1995 NBA Finals - Game 4

    In a back-and-forth affair (13 lead changes in the 3rd quarter alone), Hakeem Olajuwon and the Rockets proved to be too much for Shaquille O'Neal and the Magic.

    If you have nbatv you should record it and watch these games.

    These performances were truly clutch, hence they named the team clutch city

    This is the true origin of that name.

    "Clutch City" came from the Suns Western Con. finals 93 94 when " chock city "(after blowing the two home games) became "Clutch City" when the Rockets went to the Suns and the rest is history.

    1995, a.k.a. Houston's second title? I was a 16y old kid then, when getting up at 3 AM to watch NBA was unheard of in among my friends. I still can't forget Nick the Brick who missed four consecutive free throws in first game of the finals and Orlando not fouling Houston with 3 point lead at end of the regulation. It seemed like the wheels fell off for Orlando after that game and Houston won easily the next three games.

    Man, the NBA has changed so much. Rockets currently running an ultra-big line-up in overtime

    Rodney McCray
    Robert Reid
    Cedric Maxwell
    Ralph Sampson
    Hakeem Olajuwon

    Watching the first OT now. An exciting game! The 93-94 games will be recorded later.

    Thanks, Tinman!

    Love that lineup. I remember Maxwell's old basketball card in this stats game I used to play--all he would do is draw fouls.

    Game 1 was awesome.

    Showing game 4 when we win the title, I don't think they show this one often.
