I'd say that is a pretty good number considering some people thought we would be one of the worst teams in the league this season.

The more interesting aspect of this is that we are 'projected' to play the nuggets in the first round..
Then the winner of Utah/Phoenix..

77.8% is very gracious. I do not believe anyone in the national media would have given us that high of a percentage before the season.

It could be higher if they would finally bring back T-Mac....... right now they don't have a consistent scorer or shot maker. No, I don't consider Landry to be either of these

Hmm although if we bring back Tmac Barkley would have his "out" from his worst team in the West comment.

Just numbers (unfortunately), and let me say stupid numbers.

I don't believe in those numbers which will change dramatically as the season progresses.
Besides, why Oklahoma City ranks this high? why Portland even drops out of playoffs?

Hollingers rankings and odds and predictions are all crap. His predictions for the playoffs last year had Portland beating us in 6 games. Since then he has lost his credibility trying to predict things in my book.

Numbers are just numbers, it ain't gonna play out that way if there's something major happen to other teams like Portland, who lost their big presence inside aka Greg Oden, and Andre Miller want's to start instead of being a sixth man coming off the bench.

But yea, 77% is a pretty high percentage of making playoffs received from national media like ESPN, which shows no love for the Rockets the past few years I may say.

Aye, ESPN, where JINX happens.

Pretty good considering Jemele Hill was the only one who had Houston in the playoffs with their preseason predictions... and I hate Jemele Hill

Happy to see so-called expert show their final respect for this team.

though the chance to win a champion is really out in the air.

The numbers alone say Portland's chances are low. We with our own eyes can now say they are even lower, with Oden out for the year and Fernandez done for 4-6wks.

Don't even bother reading their bull****. At the beginning of the season, everyone was saying we had no chance of making the playoffs. Now everyone's like, OMG let's jump on the Rockets bandwagon.
