    I have seen 90%+ Rockets games this year. This series is the worst team ever. No where close to the team I have watched this year. With that said, changes must be made in order to create a "Spark". Think about it and lets see what you think:

    Starters: Nick Johnson, Beard, Brewer, Ariza, Howard

    Johnson holds Redick: Johnson's defense far outweighs Terry's points (starting only). He's younger and faster and can keep up with him. Plus he can drive and finish or get fouled if motivated correctly.
    Beard holds Barnes: He can keep him at bay...hopefully.
    Brewer holds Paul: Defense and energy
    Ariza holds Griffin: Best defender on him all series.
    Howard holds Jordan: Self explanatory

    Pros: More energy, better defense, more fast breaks, less 3's and more layup attemps, Griffin has to come out on someone leaving the lane less cluttered.

    Cons: Rebounds suffer. (Need Howard to be a beast)

    Bench: Terry, Prigs, Jones, Smith, (Ariza or Brew depending on who comes out first for rest)

    We need a spark and this may be just what the doctor ordered. And if it doesn't work, then its only a starting lineup. Plug can be pulled early.
