Houston Rockets' 22 game win-streak recently ended, the NBA best Boston Celtics snapping their streak.  Houston lost by 21, as it was a tough game.  Houston Rockets' PG Rafer Alston had a bad shooting night, the week before shooting 8/11 3 pt fg's.  Tracy McGrady also had a bad night. 

Since the streak began, the Rockets have won 12 with Yao Ming, the Houston Rockets' All Star center, and won 10 without him.  The absense of arguably the best center in the NBA has brought out the real spirit in many players of the Rockets.  Rookie Carl Landry has been an undoubtedly AMAZING contribution to their success.  Rafer Alston has been another contribution, even Shane Battier, the Houston Rockets' primary lockdown defender has been a great contribution.  

Since the work stress has been lifted off Houston Rockets' All-Star Tracy McGrady's shoulders, it has been easier for him.  Tracy had been scoring 25, 33 pts in a game against the New Orleans Hornets.  Tracy played all 48 minutes. 

Though this amazing piece of history made in our time has ended, we saw history in the making. The longest was with Wilt Chamberlain's Lakers, who put together a 33 game win streak.  But comeon, 22 wins in a row?  That's amazing.
