For four consecutive years, the Rockets led the Philadelphia 76ers by double digits in Toyota Center. For four consecutive years, the Sixers rallied to win in some of the Rockets' most maddening, team-meeting-inspiring losses of each season.

With the Rockets heading toward a bad sequel, Kevin Martin and Kyle Lowry carried them through the fourth quarter and to a 93-87 victory, their fourth win in five games of this homestand.
