They lost Harden and now Martin. They have no bench, Reggie Jackson? lol If Houston faces OKC or the Grizzlies I like their chances.

San Antonio is the only team I see beating Houston.

Edit: and houston doesn't need a bench. deepness is overrated you don't even need that much depth in the playoffs just make sure your starters are healthy.

i wouldn't mind an average PF though. houston has below average pfs.

Kevin Martin sucks, but still only Chuckbrook and Durant can score so it would be easy in the playoffs for the opponent teams to game plan against the Thunder.

Depth counts when players like Dwight is in foul trouble. You don't have to worry though with Asik already in your roster. Just make sure Parsons doesn't get benched for foul trouble.

Even if people still considered him very good pre injury, he's been out for the entire season. He ain't going to go back to his prior form.

I wouldn't go that far.

Roy Hibbert is the most important player.

Unless the Spolestra comes up with better offense, but I highly doubt it.

Part of that is because Stan never used that combo much at all. If the opponent has a limited SF, put Jameer/Reddick/Rashard/Howard/Gortat. If they happen to have an excellent onball defender, but limited SF, then Jameer/Hedo/Rashard/Howard/Gortat

Don't see Pau Gasol helping Bulls much. He is WAY out of shape. Granted, he's still better than Boozer.

doesn't matter what player but they need someone else who can create offense. too easy to stop them when it's just rose

That's probably the best player they can get for Granger. Maybe EJ would stop getting frequently injured if he is with the Pacers.
