    EGo should still play 15-20 mins, he is rusty.

    Rest PJ, RoCo, Green (34) and House (toe). They will be needing all their energy/legs for OKC series. Or at least put them on same mins restrictions as EGo.

    If there is going to be new starting lineup, may want to see for 15 mins. Or should we unveil vs. OKC since CP3 has been scouting us?

    Even if the bubble is tiers below a real postseason, Rockets going all out for a title is A OK.

    If EG comes out of this game without any issues, that's a win.

    The actual game result win/loss make 0 difference

    Give the end of the bench a real workout. Let’s see what they can do, what they can’t do, and really limit the minutes of the guys in the rotation, except for those who have barely played, like Gordon. Mix things up. Why not?

    Looking forward to seeing Ben, rivers, and Gordon do made up shi* on the court. Improvisation at its best.

    Rockets lose but stay healthy.

    Gordon gets his groove back.

    Bruno gets playing time and his production is there. Then it will be stated that talent level within the game was to low really tell anything. So everyone here knows he shut down the fake “MVP” in summer play not even a year ago. He is a monster one on one defender.
    Systems Systems Systems where does he fit in?

    Rest the starters. I'd rather be healthy (sans Westbrook ATM) going into the Playoffs.

    Play the lineups you are going to work with the next series for at least a couple of minutes each. Nothing beats real game speed as a sparring.

    Last game of the regular season.
    And literally for us, the last game of the last day of longest regular season ever. Of course it was going to be us watching until midnight.
