No, this isn't a memorable single-game performance, but a series of them for a Rockets team that put together a 22-game winning streak, the second longest in NBA history. With complementary players like Rafter Alston, Luis Scola and Carl Landry supporting stars Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming (before he got hurt), the Rockets went unbeaten for seven weeks. And they sustained the streak even after losing Yao (foot surgery) for the season 12 games into it. The streak was snapped March 18 in a 94-74 home loss to the Celtics.
