Houston Rockets are the hottest team in the NBA

Chris-Paul-James-Harden

Last month, the Rockets had their first perfect month since February 2008, and the team is currently riding the same wave as the Rockets from a decade ago, the team that won 22 straight.

Houston's dramatic 123-120 win over Boston on Saturday gave the Rockets their 15th consecutive victory, tied for second-longest in franchise history. The feat equals that set by two teams from the Hakeem Olajuwon era, including one 15-game run from their first championship season (1993-94).

The Rockets are just seven games away from tying their franchise record, and it will be difficult. There is a reason why only four teams have been able to win 22 in a row. But if any team can match that mark from ten years ago, it is the Rockets.

The Rockets won 14 consecutive games earlier this season, making them the first team with two winning streaks of at least 14 games in the same regular season since the Phoenix Suns in 2006-07.

Seven games the Rockets need to win in order to tie the streak and with 15 games over the next 27 days, the Rockets surely have a grueling schedule for March.

In Order to Tie the Streak

vs @Thunder (3/6), @Bucks (3/7), @Raptors (3/9), @Mavericks (3/11), vs. Spurs (3/12), vs. Clippers (3/15), @Pelicans (3/17)

Saturday's victory makes the Rockets 22-2 since Jan. 8 and an undefeated 16-0 when they score at least 120 points this season. Houston is 32-1 when James Harden, Chris Paul, and Clint Capela all play in the same game.
