Transcript 3-24 lift-Olf! Houston, We Have Basketball. The Houston Rockets jumped into the 2003-04 season with a new look, in more ways than one. First, there was the change in uniforms from the deep blue jerseys with white pinstripes that somewhat resembled pajamas to a more streamlined, simple red-and-white combination with just enough style for this millennium. And to go with the new unis was a new arena n the Toyota Center — which replaced the Compaq Center as the Rockets' home. Then there was the change at head coach - out was longtime (and nearly lifetime) Rocket Rudy Tomjanovich, the coach who helped bring two NBA championships in 1994 and 1995, and in was Jeff Van Gundy, a disciple of Pat Riley who was known for his commitment to defense and tireless work ethic. The Rockets began the season with high hopes, as their young budding star center Yao Ming entered his second season with the team, hoping to build on a largely successful rookie season in 2003. He teamed with guards Steve Francis and Cuttino Mobley to form a trio of talent that had the ability to be explosive offensively at times and hold opposing teams down defensively as well. Players like forwards Jim Jackson and Maurice Taylor, and center Kelvin Cato nicely filled complementary roles to Francis, Mobley and Yao helping the Rockets to a 45-37 record, good for seventh place in the Western Conference and the team's first trip to the playoffs in over four seasons. In the playoffs the Rockets met the Los Angeles Lakers, led by four future Hall-of-Famers in Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone and Gary Payton. Francis was impressive in the series, averaging 1 9.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 7.6 assists in helping to keep the Rockets close in nearly every game of the series. But the Lakers big four would prove to be too much as they defeated the Rockets four games to one, ending Houston's season.
