HOUSTON: GUARDS: JAMES HARDEN is a franchise player, and as one of the league's elite pick-and-roll threats, he and Dwight Howard have the potential to be dominant . . . Trade rumors will continue to circle JEREMY LIN, who isn't an off-the-ball threat to fit alongside Harden. He is, however, clearly a starting-caliber point guard . . . PATRICK BEVERLEY really shined in back-up minutes last year, and he's part of the reason that Lin is expendable. He's strong defensively, and he proved capable of running the second unit. He'll be one of the league's top back-up PGs if Lin stays . . . Rookie combo guard ISAIAH CANAAN will be developed as a spot-up shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a roster filler . . . AARON BROOKS is around as a reclamation project . . . RONNIE BREWER provides a much-needed athletic perimeter defender. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS is an elite role player. He entered the league with the reputation as a pure athlete, but it's his ability to knock down the corner three that's made him so valuable in Houston . . . GREG SMITH looks like another great find for the Rockets. He's an athletic banger who can allow Dwight Howard to roam a bit on defense . . . DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS showed flashes as a rookie, but the stretch four looks like a situational role player for the foreseeable future . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA will lend a veteran presence to the second unit . . . Versatile TERRENCE JONES could be in for more minutes as the Rockets look for the right role players . . . OMRI CASSPI might be getting his last chance at the NBA. CENTERS: DWIGHT HOWARD should be much happier in Houston, though the Rockets still have to convince him that he can dominate as a pick-and-roll player. He should make everyone forget about his season with the Lakers . . . The fact is OMER ASIK just doesn't fit alongside Howard. But if he stays somewhat happy in Houston, he could be a valuable second-unit player . . . MARCUS CAMBY has latched on to chase a ring.
PHOENIX: GUARDS: ERIC BLEDSOE immediately becomes the Suns' best player. He dominated for stretches while backing up Chris Paul . . . GORAN DRAGIC and Bledsoe will play together since they're the two best players on this team. Dragic also has enough size to match up with most twos . . . After a disappointing stint as a starter, SHANNON BROWN will return to the second unit . . . KENDALL MARSHALL doesn't fit new coach Jeff Hornacek's up-tempo style. The Suns will move him if they can . . . ARCHIE GOODWIN looked lost at times at Kentucky, but his ability to get to the line bodes well for his NBA future . . . GERALD GREEN is the kind of athlete who could make an impact on an up-tempo second unit . . . MALCOLM LEE is here in case Marshall is dealt. FORWARDS: MARKIEFF MORRIS has some upside as a skilled stretch four. He's shown flashes over his first two seasons, and playing in Honracek's up-tempo system should only help him take the next step forward . . . MARCUS MORRIS is still a man without a position, a tweener in a bad way. The Suns will try to make him into an effective second-unit guy . . . CHANNING FRYE missed all of last season with a heart ailment, and the Suns don't seem to be expecting to get anything from him this season.CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT will keep the seat warm for Alex Len. He doesn't fit this up-and-down offense . . . ALEX LEN must become more assertive and the bust factor is high, but 7-footers with his mobility and touch don't come around often . . . MILES PLUMLEE could get minutes as a defensive specialist after making just 5-of-21 FG as a rookie.

*Rockets-Suns Preview* ======================


Houston (37-18) at Phoenix (33-21), 9:00 p.m. EDT

Houston Rockets guard James Harden is coming off his highest-scoring game of the season, but it's possible he won't be available for an encore Sunday night.

With Harden having suffered a hyperextended right elbow, Houston could be without its backcourt star when it visits the red-hot Phoenix Suns.

Harden scored 34 of his 39 points after halftime in a 102-99 overtime loss to Golden State on Thursday. He was injured when he collided with teammate Jeremy Lin in the final minutes of regulation.

Though he stayed in the game, Harden underwent postgame X-rays and initially feared he had broken his arm.

"I couldn't really even grab the ball," said Harden, who's averaged 34.3 points in his last three contests. "I couldn't dribble with my right or do anything, so it was tough."

Despite the injury, Harden could the Suns, as he practiced Saturday.

The Rockets (37-18) will be trying to get back on track after having their eight-game winning streak snapped, with poor shooting a major culprit. Houston made 50.5 percent from the field during the eight straight wins before hitting 36.6 percent against the Warriors.

"It's OK, we're in a good place right now," Harden told the team's official website. "We didn't play well but we still had so many opportunities to win that game. They hit a couple tough shots ... We've got another game on Sunday and just have to get back on a roll."

Center Dwight Howard, who averaged 24.1 points and shot 60.6 percent during the win streak, scored 11 points and went 4 of 13 on Thursday. He did, however, have 21 rebounds and four blocks.

The Rockets will likely need Howard to bounce back if they're going to keep up with Phoenix, winner of four of five and 11 of 15. The Suns (33-21) have averaged 110.0 points in their last four victories and 108.6 in the past 15 games.

The latest win came in impressive fashion, with Phoenix routing visiting San Antonio 106-85 on Friday. The Suns shot a staggering 64.9 percent (37 for 57) on 2-point field goals, lifting them to the lopsided victory as they overcame a 5-for-25 effort from beyond the arc.

The Suns got 60 points from their reserves, led by Markieff Morris (21) and Ish Smith (career-high 15).

"The biggest thing with us is we want to play that pace," Smith said. "We want to constantly push the ball, push the ball. That's what makes us really good."

Smith has helped the club overcome injuries to point guards Eric Bledsoe and Leandro Barbosa. Smith, who played for Houston in 2010-11 and has been with six teams in his four-year career, added seven rebounds and four assists as he continued to emerge as a key role player.

He has recorded 18 assists and nine turnovers in his last eight games.

"Ish is special. It's harder because he's so small and when he goes low, it's even harder to stay in front of him," starting point guard Goran Dragic said.

The Suns have won seven of the last eight matchups with the Rockets in Phoenix.

Harden struggled with his shooting in the first two games against the Suns this season, making 25.9 percent from the field and 20.0 percent from 3-point range while totaling 37 points. The teams split those contests, both in Houston.
