Default James is the MVP

Harden that is

Should this go down as his first or second MVP, given that he won the players MVP in 2015?

Since Harden came back from injury on Jan 18th, he has averaged 30/5/9 and the Rockets are 16-1.

He very likely wins it, deservedly so. But he better make sure he keeps cp3 healthy or they could flame out in the 1st round. Some dangerous teams top to bottom in the West playoffs this year.

Even without CP3, they will make the WSF at the least. The team is even better than last year without CP3, let alone with him.

Of course, they should make it to the Conference Finals no matter what as long as Harden is around. But there are scary teams seeded 3-9 that are about a couple of games from each other. Nuggets, Jazz, Spurs, OKC, they could end up playing any of those teams in a series and could lose to any of them if CP3 gets hurt like he is sometimes known to do come playoff time.

At this point, with Butler out and Kawhi out, I would be very disappointed if Houston didn't make it to the WCF.

I could see them losing to OKC maybe, and I guess I'd be okay with that (still disappointed) but for me, it's WCF or bust.

Houston isn't losing to Denver, they can't defend the pick and roll to save their lives and do a crappy job defending the 3pt line as well. Houston has destroyed them this season.

Unfortunately, and OKC L and Pelicans W has dropped the Thunder to the 8th seed. Could make for an intriguing first round matchup
