    Of course they are.

    No sane team wants to face the Rockets.

    LoL

    HA! Booker is going to go for 60 and look like a poor mans Harden in this game. I might watch.

    Yeah I'm not sure why people are worried about them in the playoffs. They got some good young talent but CP3 isn't enough to carry them in the post season.

    So if they do intentionally go for the 6th seed, would Rockets best case scenario be Jazz in 1st round and Lakers in 2nd? Didn't really think that was an option until recently. Thunder still have Heat and Clippers to play.

    If anyone is definitely avoiding Houston, it's the Jazz. The rockets just have their number and im sure they're sick of playing them continuously for the past couple of years. so why matchup again. they've been sitting their guys, including today vs dallas who has also sat their guys

    only problem with them tanking is that Dallas might get the fifth? and then one of them falls to the seventh to play clippers?

    A healthy CP3 makes playoff games competitive against all teams.

    Well can’t the clippers still end up 3 seed with another loss? I doubt they would want to play them over the rockets.

    The Thunder are going to have a lot of trouble scoring on the Rockets in a playoff series.

    Utah and OKC are a bunch of COWARDS. Bring either on!
