    Rockets could only beat Philly in a series and that is dependent on Capela not being rag-dolled by Embiid.

    this years utah team should be on the list. they're as good as any of the teams on the list and can be as much of a threat if not more

    yes i realize small ball works... but we really do need some size in the playoffs, when the game slows down. any team that can run a BIG lineup against us is a threat in that scenario.

    Nothing has happened to change my mind on any team that is the length with above-average shooting and average or decent defense will be our demise.
    Additionally, we will be our own demise if the following continues as it has been for the past couple of years.
    Tired legs in the playoffs from playing 8-man rotation in the regulation games
    MDA's pathetic tiny ball lineups
    Inconsistent defense, especially lack of transition defense

    what's the point when we have the worst defence in the league and allow even the wizards to score 158 points?

    What’s the point of this question when none of these teams (including the Rockets) have reached their final form? Ask me this in March...

    All 4 of those teams aren’t problems for the Rockets they are outright better than the Rockets. At least as the teams stand now.

    Been watching the lakers and clips game. The refs are no longer with gsw, they have shifted to Los Angeles
    It’s going to be annoying again facing them(ref) in the post season.

    None of the above. The fact our team can't hit wide open shots is the biggest threat.

    We can be a lot better in that area but we have to have fun EGo. Keep in mind in the playoffs the bench rotation will probably only be ego, rivers and chandler.

    James, ego, and house will probably be taking 70+% of our threes. I believe if healthy we can make ENOUGH to where it won’t lose us the game. From there turnovers and rebound battle will probably determine things.
