The 2005-06 Houston Rockets season was the team's 39th in the NBA. They began the season hoping to improve upon their 51-31 output from the previous season. However, with Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming missing 70 games due to injuries, they came up seventeen games shy of tying it, finishing 34-48, and failing to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in three seasons. This season was the only time the Rockets did not make the playoffs under Jeff Van Gundy. As Houston hosted the 2006 NBA All-Star Game, McGrady and Yao were the only team representatives. [1]
