The 1994–95 NBA season was the Rockets’ 28th season in the National Basketball Association, also 24th year in Houston.  After winning their first championship, the Rockets went on to win their first nine games of this season. However, with greater competition in the West, management felt that a change was required to win another name. On February 14, the Rockets traded Otis Thorpe into the Portland Trail Blazers to get All-Star guard Clyde Drexler, a former teammate of Hakeem Olajuwon at the University of Houston. But following the trade, the Rockets fought in the second half of this season posting a list of 17–18 on their way to finishing third at the Midwest Division with a 47–35 record. Olajuwon was chosen for the 1995 NBA All-Star Game.
In the movie, the Rockets faced the 3rd-seeded Utah Jazz in the first round. The Jazz would take a 2–1 series lead, however, the Rockets went on to win the series in five games. In the semifinals, they confronted the Phoenix Suns for the 2nd consecutive year. The Rockets managed to defeat the 2nd-seeded Suns in seven matches ahead of the Western Conference Finals. In all Texas Western Conference, they faced the San Antonio Spurs. The two teams lacked home court advantage in the show, only winning on the street until the Rockets won Game 6 at The Summit and advanced to the NBA Finals. From the event, they swept the Orlando Magic in four straight matches, and won their second consecutive championship.
