VIDEO REVIEW : Relive Sports Favorites on Home Video


The Houston Rockets' remarkable surge to a repeat National Basketball Assn. title, New Jersey's dominating run through hockey's Stanley Cup playoffs, college football's greatest games and wackiest moments, golf's one-in-a-million shots, the America's Cup and even the "Extreme Games" are now available on home video.

The NBA championship video runs 60 minutes, slightly longer than its title, "Double Clutch--The Houston Rockets Second Championship Season: The Official 1995 NBA Finals Video."

The video captures the excitement of sixth-seeded Houston's domination of the showdown playoffs and the pivotal play of Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler. Interviews with key players and behind-the-scenes footage are included. Order at (800) 622-3865, $19.98.

"The Official 1995 NHL Stanley Cup Championship Video," chronicling New Jersey's playoff drive, was released just 34 days after the Devils' sweep of regular-season champion Detroit in the finals. The $19.98, 60-minute video can be ordered at (800) 466-4595.

In Video Stores: College football scores twice with "College Football's Greatest Games" and "The Football Hall of Shame." ESPN analyst Beano Cook adds insight to the highlights (45 minutes, $14.95), and cohort Chris Myers narrates the reel of funny and not-so-funny oddities on the gridiron, including a Bucknell-Hofstra game with 15 turnovers, and a 222-0 victory by Georgia Tech (40 minutes, $14.95).

"Golf's One-in-a-Million Shots" (50 minutes, $14.95) includes great shots by great players in great events, including Arnold Palmer's 346-yard drive in the 1960 Open, Jack Nicklaus' 1-iron in the 1972 Open and shots by Curtis Strange, Tom Watson, Lew Worsham, Tom Kite and Bob Tway.

"America's Cup '95" (60 minutes, $19.95) recaps the 4-0 sweep by New Zealand's Black Magic I over Young America, as well as the Defender and Challenger series.

From the bungee-jumping and sky-surfing set comes "Extreme Games," which took place a month ago in and over Rhode Island (60 minutes, $14.95).

Also just released is the highlight video of the Washington Redskins' 1994 season--yup, 30 minutes about a 3-13 season--from PolyGram Video or directly from NFL Films (800) 635-1913, $14.95.
