The tip-off even had to be delayed due to the number of fans flooding through the Arena doors ahead of their historic debut game at the new venue against Newcastle Eagles.
Rocks' General Manager Daniel Bajwoluk was delighted with the turnout, something which bodes well for the rest of the season.
He said, "It was incredible to see so many Rocks fans pack into the Emirates Arena for the first ever game in our new home.
"The atmosphere was electric and shows what we can expect over the coming months.
"It is a hugely exciting time for basketball and sport in general in Scotland and we can't wait to play a part in that at the Emirates Arena."
Indeed this classic BBL match-up has been a real highlight so far, with the Eagles also having cause to celebrate. The north-east club harvested record gate receipts for their first game of the season at Sport Central when they hosted the Rocks.
Manchester Giants have also had some excellent spectator numbers and have managed a near sell-out for each home game since their return to the BBL.
And, they have certainly repaid those who have come to watch with two wins from their first three homes games including a memorable last second win against London Lions in their first game.
This is indicative of a general rise in attendances right across the BBL as clubs try to get off to a quick start in order to make sure it's a season to remember - both on and off the court.
