    Unless Austin Rivers turn into TMac or Brandon Roy, I don’t expect the Rockets to do anything.

    I agree with Brian and Scottie. This is a really good team. Morey needs to stop trying to break this team up!!! KD is gone. Klay is out to All Star Break. Houston can win the West!

    As stupid of a question as this sounds, it's actually a big W for Houston, outside of Harden and PJ I'd say he's arguably the 3rd most consistent player for them in the playoffs, great defender and could hit the open shot. Houston still should be confident that the can win it all. Shouldn't be favorited, but with a top 4 player in the game right now in his prime with good shooters and defenders around him, they could bet any team in a 7 game series (and lose to many as well) their biggest issue is that they need to find a more consistent way to play, not new personnel.
