Houston Rockets vs.
San Antonio Spurs
Friday 3/22/2019 7:00 PM
This Friday weekend game will be the Rockets fourth meeting with San Antonio this NBA season with Rockets so far at 44-26 record and San Antonio with a 41-29 season.
These two franchises have been at rivalry since 1976 when the Spurs moved from the American Basketball Association along with the Denver Nuggets, New York Nets, and Indiana Pacers. The Rockets and Spurs competed for the division title, with the Rockets winning it first in 1977 and the Spurs in 1978 and 1979. In 1980, they met in the playoffs for the first time as the Rockets led by Moses Malone and Calvin Murphy beat the Spurs led by George Gervin and James Silas 2–1. The rivalry grew intense as both teams moved from the East to the West. They met again in 1981, this time in the second round.

Houston Ballet Present's
thru Sunday 3/24/2019
This weekend Houston's Ballet introduces the world to three performances that may or may not take the dance world by storm.
After the triumph of her World Premiere Angular Momentum created in 2012 for Houston Ballet, Aszure Barton returns with Come In, a contemporary work for thirteen male dancers.
The ballet company also said, following the tremendous response to Justin Peck’s Year of the Rabbit, they're welcoming him back with Reflections. The company boasts it looks forward to seeing his approach, which is, they say, "always energetic, current, and focused on the power of the music."
The ballet also announced the continuing tradition of bringing Jirí Kylián’s ground-breaking works to Houston like Petite Mort, they're pleased to present Kylián’s Dream Time. As part of the choreographer’s iconic repertoire at Nederlands Dans Theater, this ballet captures the power of dance to transcend time and communicate across all barriers, beautifully danced to a gorgeous score by the legendary Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu.
