Join the Houston Rockets, fellow Rockets faithful, and, well, anyone else who loves basketball on Sunday for a virtual watch party.

The Rockets’ Facebook account will host, for the second time, a live showing of their documentary “Where Amazing Happens.” If you don’t know — there’s no way you’re reading a Rockets blog and don’t know this — the documentary relives the extremely improbable 22-game win streak that the fan-favorite Rockets reeled off in the 2007-2008 season.

Where Amazing Happened

The Rockets' 21st straight win put them tied for first in the West with the Lakers. And guess who was coming to town? Join us for a virtual watch party, on Sunday, March 29th, to follow the team's journey in the documentary Where Amazing Happened.

If you’re like me and haven’t seen this documentary, but still somehow call yourself a die-hard Rockets fan, this would be the perfect time to see this piece. Not only are you watching the most important non-postseason moment in Rockets’ history, but you’ll get to watch it in real time with tons of other people and engage in discussion — or lurk the comments section like I will. It’s also a great opportunity to take your mind off of quarantining yourself with some media that you hardly get a chance to consume while interacting with other human beings in a high-energy, safe space.

With the city of Houston under a “Stay Home-Work Safe” order until at least April 3, I’d like to see the Rockets explore possibly hosting live viewing parties of each those 22 games themselves. The first half of the win streak will probably not seem all that special, but the latter half of them were electric and it’s probably the most consistently fired up I’ve seen a Rockets crowd during the regular season. It’s a good excuse to emanate energy and great vibes all around.

It’s a long shot, but getting people interacting in a positive arena is important now more than ever. I hope to see you in the comment section on Sunday.
