OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK can do whatever he wants inside the arc and will continue to be a shoot-first point guard . . . JAMES HARDEN will likely keep coming off the bench, but he'll also keep playing starter's minutes . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA is OKC's best perimeter defender. But his role won't become more prominent until the postseason . . . ERIC MAYNOR should be just about all the way back from his torn ACL. When healthy, he's one of the league's best backup point guards . . . DAEQUAN COOK will see limited minutes as a three-point specialist . . . REGGIE JACKSON's role will shrink to near nothing if Maynor is healthy. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT continues to do it all, and has done nothing but steadily improve each season . . . SERGE IBAKA is obviously an elite shot-blocker, but he continues to get lost in space. He's made some strides as a pick-and-roll defender, but that weakness is why he doesn't play 30 minutes per night . . . NICK COLLISON will continue to steal a lot of Ibaka's minutes because he defends the pick-and-roll better, and because he draws so many charges, he's almost as good in help situations . . . PERRY JONES III is an incredible athlete, but needs a year or two to learn the game . . . LAZAR HAYWARD is back as a 12th man. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS will continue to start, but is a part-time player. The Thunder are often better with a small lineup. While Perkins is a bruiser he is too easy to exploit as a defender in space . . . COLE ALDRICH could be ready for a slightly bigger role off the bench . . . HASHEEM THABEET is a reclamation project. There's a sliver of long-term hope, but he won't help this year.
HOUSTON: GUARDS: Houston has gutted its roster, and this is JEREMY LIN's team now. Coach Kevin McHale will use the same pick-and-roll offense he used with Goran Dragic, and Lin should do what he did in New York a year ago . . . KEVIN MARTIN is on the trade block. As long as he's in Houston, he'll be in and out of McHale's doghouse, especially seeing that he's not in the long-term plans . . . JEREMY LAMB should push Martin for minutes early. Lamb will have some defensive issues, but he's a cagey scorer who should mesh well with Lin . . . CARLOS DELFINO replaces Chase Budinger as the team's most reliable marksman from three-point range . . . TONEY DOUGLAS' defensive ability puts him in the running for a rotation spot . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON can give them 12 to 15 minutes a night . . . Rookie SCOTT MACHADO, an outstanding passer, will back up Lin . . . GARY FORBES will have trouble finding minutes. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS was a nice surprise a year ago. He's a fifth option offensively but does the hustle/energy thing well . . . 2011 first-rounder DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS is a skilled 7-footer who fits with Lin. Expect him to grab a starting job by midseason, but he can also play center when required . . . This might be the year PATRICK PATTERSON makes an impact. His game is limited, but he can rebound and score around the basket . . . ROYCE WHITE is a 270-pounder with point guard skills. He needs the ball in his hands though, which is why he's not a great fit with Lin in the starting lineup . . . TERRENCE JONES has a tweener skill set. At this point, he's better suited for the second unit . . . Speaking of 'tweeners, MARCUS MORRIS looks to be nowhere near contributing. CENTERS: OMER ASIK earned his reputation as a defensive stud in Chicago, and he'll get a little more offensive freedom in Houston. He is quite foul-prone though, and he'll be tested on the free-throw line early and often . . . His backup, GREG SMITH, has more fouls (17) than points (14) in his 69-minute NBA career.

*Thunder-Rockets Preview* =========================


Oklahoma City (39-14) at Houston (29-26), 8:00 p.m. EDT

A few days after getting back into the same uniform as Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, James Harden will see them on the court again but as part of the opposing team.

The first two times that happened went very badly for his Houston Rockets.

After shooting poorly against his former team as Houston was blown out in both matchups, Harden has a chance to spoil the Oklahoma City Thunder's return from the All-Star break and help hand them a season-high third straight loss.

Harden, in his first season with the Rockets after spending the past three with the Thunder, played in his first All-Star game Sunday and was among the unofficial hosts for the weekend in Houston. After coaching the winning West team in the All-Star celebrity game Friday night, Harden had 15 points in the main event Sunday in a 143-138 victory over the East.

Durant scored a game-high 30 and Westbrook added 14 as they played on the same team with Harden for the first time since losing Game 5 of last year's NBA finals to Miami.

"Playing with (Harden) today made me miss him a little bit," Durant told the NBA's official website. "I'm happy he was an All-Star, especially in the city he plays in. It was a lot of fun. I didn't want it to be over."

For Harden, the feeling was mutual.

"I miss those guys as well," he said. "Just being with them every day, when you leave somewhere, you definitely are going to miss them. This weekend was good for us just to see each other and catch up on good times."

The times haven't been so good for Harden when his new team has played his old one. His return to Oklahoma City was a 120-98 loss Nov. 28 as he shot 3 for 16 and had 17 points. Harden scored 25 in the rematch but was 6 of 17 from the field in a 124-94 home loss Dec. 29.

The Thunder shot a combined 50.8 percent in those games while limiting the Rockets to 40.6.

Harden played very well in his final four games before All-Star weekend, averaging 32.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 6.8 assists before injuries kept him out of a 106-96 loss to the Clippers last Wednesday.

Houston (29-26) alternated wins and losses in its last six games before the break with poor defense remaining a major issue. All six of those opponents scored more than 100 points as the Rockets allowed an average of 109.3.

Defense also was a big problem for Oklahoma City (39-14) in its final two games before the break, losing 109-94 at Utah last Tuesday and 110-100 to Miami on Thursday. The Thunder are 30-2 when holding the opposition under 100 points.

Durant totaled 73 points in those two games while Westbrook had 48, but the duo combined for 22 turnovers.

Durant is coming off his third straight All-Star appearance with at least 30 points.

"I just go out there and have fun, use this experience a little bit and try to bring it to my team," he said. "Just how fun the game is supposed to be every single night and how blessed we are to be playing on this stage. I'm looking forward to the second half, hopefully it's a good one."

Houston has won four straight and 11 of 14 at home. The only visiting team to win there by more than 10 points this season was Oklahoma City.
