HOUSTON -- Among the sweetest memories in Houston sports history were the Rockets’ back-to-back NBA Championships in 1994 and 1995.
The Rockets swept the Orlando Magic in 1995 the claim their second straight championship.
The series featured a matchup of two of the best centers in NBA history, Hakeem Olajuwon and Shaquille O’Neal.
The odds were stacked against the Rockets who had to win a record nine road games in the playoffs. They became the first team ever to win the NBA Finals as a sixth seed and the first team to beat four 50-win teams -- including the tough San Antonio Spurs -- in a single postseason.
