Recent history has not been kind to the Houston Rockets.
They have missed the playoffs for three straight seasons, having losing records in each campaign.
Their woes have mainly been due to a lack of star power across their roster, leading to less-than-ideal circumstances.
However, the Rockets seem to be turning things around if early-season play is any indication.
As NBA Central has recently pointed out on Twitter, the Rockets have won six in a row, which has included taking down the defending NBA Champions, the Denver Nuggets.

The Rockets have seemed to find lightning in a bottle from recently added veterans alongside young, upcoming superstars.
This recent surge has excited fans across the league, who are hoping the Rockets can keep up this dynamic run.

Several fans have cited Dillon Brooks as the main reason for the Rockets’ success.
After a six-year career with the Memphis Grizzlies, Brooks made his way to the Rockets to try and be one of the team’s stars.
He was seemingly in Ja Morant’s shadow on the Grizzlies but has now set off on his own path.
This has resulted in a great year for Brooks, and an even better campaign for the Rockets.
The Rockets’ new coach, Ime Udoka, has also gotten significant praise for his ability to turn this team around.
Udoka was the head coach for the Boston Celtics before being dismissed for off-court matters.
He knows what it is like to foster a winning culture within a locker room, something he has captured early on with the Rockets.
Can they keep this up throughout the rest of the season?
