    Aside from the Warriors, which teams are the most likely to derail this team's championship hopes?

    That depends, are we counting the referees/NBA as a team?

    1) Warriors
    2) Injuries
    3) Spurs(if fully healthy)
    4) Raptors

    That's basically it. And honestly, I don't even know if the Raptors should be included yet. Their win over the Rockets at Toyota Center was the last game played before CP3 returned from his early season knee injury(after which the Rockets rolled off 14 straight).

    Playoff James Harden and playoff Chris Paul. Both have a history of disappointing playoff performances. I agree that the Rockets are their own worst enemy. The performance against Dallas last night is a case in point. They let a bunch of benchwarmers light them up by playing harder, faster, and better. Their talent level ultimately prevailed, but they didn't look like a playoff team doing it.

    On the other hand, I think they "can" win it all. The formula is less isolation, working for the high percentage shot, defensive intensity, and rim protection. I actually think the additions of Johnson and Wright could be a "tipping point."
