HOUSTON Houston Rockets fans will have the opportunity to relive some of the teams most memorable moments when Clutch City Classics debut on FOX Sports Houston beginning Wednesday, November 9 at 9:00 p.m. The original episodes, which will be hosted by Rockets Lone Star Emmy award winning play-by-play announcer Bill Worrell and include commentary from former Rockets players such as Clyde Drexler, Mario Elie and Matt Bullard, will air each Wednesday in November. The Rockets will also host a special pre-broadcast viewing party at Stadia Grill (20900 Katy Freeway, Katy, TX 77449) on Wednesday, November 9 from (6:30-9:00 p.m.) to commemorate the premiere episode. Elie will be on hand to interact with fans and recount his thoughts on his famous kiss of death series-clinching basket against the Phoenix Suns in the 1995 Western Conference Semifinals (52095). We are excited to offer our fans the opportunity to relive some of our defining franchise moments, said Rockets Chief Executive Officer Tad Brown. Mr. Alexander has built a storied franchise that has provided a host of memorable championship moments. Clutch City Classics will offer our fans the opportunity to experience those thrilling franchise achievements while listening to our former players recount their fond memories of the games.
