    I hope we have the 3 seed locked up by April, and I hope MDA lets the main guys take 2-3 games off, so no, I don't think 60 wins is likely.

    It depends on rebounds. Grab more rebounds can win easily

    60 wins is good but not good enough to win Harden MVP

    As long as WB gets a triple double, even if he finishes 10+ games behind and 3 seeds behind

    IT ALL ABOUT DAT TRIPLE DOUBLE

    29/11/8 and 60 Wins <<<<<<<<< 30/10/10 and 48 Wins

    2 extra rebounds >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 12 wins

    56, 57 is pretty likely.

    I think that 4-7 stretch in January destroyed any shot at 60.

    It would be awesome for Westbrook to win mvp then get beat out in the first round

    WB all about that MVP title with the clear stat chasing.

    Sorry, but this is a naive thread.

    14 games left, last 5 games: 3-2

    I think the Rockets will end up winning 10-11 games for 58 wins or so.

    The last 5 games will be spent MDA experimenting with different rotations for the playoffs so we're likely looking at 2, 3 losses just there. I think we go 56-26.

    Should have been 60, too bad we didn't show up defensively to a few too many games.

    Still, way better than expected at the start of the season.

    To think of the 4 games we blew this year (Pacers, two Spurs games, Hawks) makes me sick.

    Does D'antoni even believe in resting players? I've seen so many 25 point blowouts where Harden, Ariza, and Beverley are still on the floor in the late 3rd / early 4th quarter and Wiltjer / Brown haven't even checked in!

    I came to sense in December that RW is winning the MVP. Remember Harden has too much help.

    But in 2014 tho

    I think everything under 55 or 56 would be a tad underwhelming after our burst mode but 54 wins is still good.
