    I know this will probably never happen but I think this is the only way were going to be a true contender...

    I've pretty much given up on the harden- russ-capela or Chandler trio.

    Russ needs to come off the bench with Gordon and you can leave him in there in the tuckwagon lineup in the fourth....he can play 3 straight quarters anyways. We need to minimize him off the ball with harden. He needs to have the ball to create with space or in the post. We can't afford his bad three point shooting and having teams doubling harden.

    Austin rivers is much better with harden and Clint and gives Clint another pick and roll option. He's a better defender too. He has brought his game to the next level and I think it's time to consider making the change.

    Thoughts?

    You'll be glad to know that the rivers here in Austin run all the time. 24/7. They started many years ago. They do swell up under heavy rains and when they open the floodgates.

    I’ve recently learned that the slowest moving river in the world is The Everglades. Never realized that was considered a river.

    Russ has been solid wtf. This is the same exact formula as harden and CP3 except even better cuz Russ and harden slightly play better on the floor together

    Bench an MVP for a streaky sub? No thanks Doc.
    Not happy with Capella? He just started playing well this season.

    The sky is the limit for this team.

    Thoughts?? Seriously?? You realize that the Rockets starting 5 has graded out as the best starting 5 in the league so far this season, right?

    This is an insane suggestion. Rivers should only start if House has to miss time because of his back contusion. Also, Westbrook played really well last night.
