Houston Rockets 2013-14 Season
8/23/13 - With the addition of prized free agent Dwight Howard
, the Rockets are poised to contend for Western Conference supremacy. After years attempting to acquire the All-Pro center, General Manager Daryl Morrey finally succeeded, beating out the Lakers, Warriors, Mavericks, and Hawks for Howard’s services. Fellow All-Star James Harden enters the 2013-14 season at just 24 years old and has the potential to be a Top 5 player in the NBA. Houston also has a stable of promising young supporting players including point guard Jeremy ‘Linsanity’ Lin
and versatile forward Chandler Parsons. If coach and former Celtic legend Kevin McHale can push the right buttons, the Rockets have the opportunity to challenge not just for the Western Conference title, but also for the NBA Championship
The average price for Rockets tickets at the Toyota Center for the 2013-14 season is $192, the tenth most expensive ticket in the NBA. With the addition of Howard, Houston Rockets tickets shot up in price. Up an average of $126 a ticket since last year, the increase is the second largest in the league. The Rockets season opener on 10/30 against the Bobcats has an average price of $268. Averaging $420, the most expensive home game is on 3/4 against the defending champion Heat. The Rockets host Howard’s former Lakers team on 1/8 in the second-most expensive home game, averaging $400. The Lakers first trip to Houston in the second week of the season on 11/7 is 17% less expensive, averaging $331. Dwight Howard's return to Staples Center is scheduled for February 19. On Christmas Day, the Rockets travel 200 miles west to take on in-state rival and defending Western Conference champion Spurs. The lone-star state showdown is averaging $239, less expensive than all but three Rockets home games.
2/22/13 - Going into the 2012 season the Houston Rockets were a rebuilding team without much hope for this season. Then they pulled off a blockbuster trade that brought them sixth man of the year James Harden to pair in the backcourt with newly acquired free agent Jeremy Lin (formerly of the New York Knicks). Now they are a legitimate playoff contender. Currently on the bubble as the eighth seed, the Rockets are a young team on the rise. They continued to rebuild on the fly at the trade deadline acquiring No. 5 pick Thomas Robinson and forwards Francisco Garcia and Tyler Honeycutt from the Sacramento Kings on February 20 (they also reached an agreement with the Phoenix Suns receiving a second-round pick for forward Marcus Morris). Can James Harden, who was recently voted the NBA's third-best one-on-one player, help mold this new squad into a championship caliber team?
