HOUSTON: LAST SEASON: 53-29, lost 4-2 to Golden State in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Mike D'Antoni (fourth season with Rockets, 173-73; 16th season overall, 628-499).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Russell Westbrook (22.9 ppg with Oklahoma City), G James Harden (36.1), F Eric Gordon (16.2), F P.J. Tucker (7.3), C Clint Capela (12.0).
KEY LOSSES: G Chris Paul, G Iman Shumpert, C Kenneth Faried
KEY ADDITIONS: Westbrook, C Tyson Chandler, F Thabo Sefolosha, F Ryan Anderson, F Ben McLemore.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: All eyes will be on Westbrook and Harden as the Rockets try to prove that these two ball-dominant guards can coexist after Houston sent Paul to Oklahoma City in exchange for Westbrook. Harden and Westbrook are longtime friends and played together in Oklahoma City at the beginning of Harden's career when he was the sixth man for the Thunder and insist that things will work out because they want them to. But things have changed a lot since their Oklahoma City days and it will be interesting to see how Westbrook will adjust to playing a supporting role to Harden after being the face of the Thunder for years.
OUTLOOK: The addition of Westbrook to this team starring Harden gives the Rockets two of the league's most dynamic scorers and playmakers a year after Houston lost to Golden State in the Western Conference semifinals. If the pairing of is successful it could help the Rockets become an offensive juggernaut in the stacked Western Conference. While Harden and Westbrook will drive Houston's success, players like Eric Gordon and center Clint Capela will have to continue to improve if the Rockets hope to finally get over the hump and compete for their first title since winning back-to-back championships in 1994-95.
ORLANDO: LAST SEASON: 42-40, lost 4-1 in first round to Toronto
COACH: Steve Clifford (second season with Magic; seventh season overall, 238-254).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Evan Fournier (15.1 ppg), G D.J. Augustin (11.7), F Aaron Gordon (16.0), F Jonathan Isaac (9.6), C Nikola Vucevic (20.8).
KEY ADDITIONS: F Al-Farouq Aminu, G Markelle Fultz (acquired in February from Philadelphia but didn't play).
PLAYERS TO WATCH: There isn't a lot of mystery to the Magic entering this season, since they bring back basically the same team and will be adding a former No. 1 overall pick in Fultz who has worked for months to fix his shoulder and shooting issues. Vucevic is coming off a season where he set career-bests in points, rebounds and assists per game. When Gordon scored big, the Magic were really good; they went 16-8 in the 24 games where Gordon reached the 20-point mark. Terrence Ross is basically a sixth starter for Orlando, needing only 26.5 minutes per game to average 15.1 points last season in an instant-offense role coming off the bench.
OUTLOOK: The Magic improved by 17 wins last season and reached the playoffs for the first time since 2012, doing all that without the burden of expectation. They won't have that same luxury this year, not after bringing back virtually every part of a team that didn't just get into the playoffs but did so by going 22-9 down the stretch of the regular season. Getting to the foul line more would be a major help, after the Magic ranked last in free throws made and free throws attempted last season. The biggest challenge for Clifford may be finding ways for his team to replicate the same get-into-the-playoffs hunger it had a year ago.
Harden leads Houston into Orlando, looking dominant as ever

The regularity with which Rockets guard James Harden executes the extraordinary should not render his feats mundane, but in truth they do. That, sometimes, is the burden of greatness.

When Houston, short-handed in the backcourt with Eric Gordon (knee) and Austin Rivers (illness) unavailable, needed Harden to shoulder a disproportionate load against the spry Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena, he answered the call. Again.

Harden produced his fourth 50-point game of the season, torching the Cavaliers for 55 points plus eight assists to carry the Rockets to a 116-110 victory in the opener of a two-game road trip that will conclude on Friday against the Orlando Magic.

There was a methodical element to how Harden dismantled Cleveland, which opted more often than not to eschew the double teams others have thrown at the two-time league scoring champion. Harden made 10 3-pointers, missed just 14 of his 34 shots, and scored with such relative ease that his point total seemed to come casually despite being anything but.

"I'm kind of used to it," Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters of watching Harden put together such performances. "If it was the first time I'd be like, 'Oh wow, look at that.' But he's done it for -- this is my fourth year -- so he's done it for four years.

"The moment is big, he gets bigger. And he's incredible, no doubt."

The Rockets' inconsistency remains an issue, but Harden provides the stability they can rely upon. There has been some discussion of his 3-point shooting, with Harden making only 34.9 percent of his career-high 14 3-point attempts per game, but his overall shooting percentage (44.0) is in line with his average (44.3) over his previous seven seasons with Houston.

That his scoring prowess is akin to a metronome makes it far too easy for some to overlook what Harden is accomplishing on a game-by-game basis. That Harden has become both cavalier about his individual exploits and team-centric in his approach facilitates the disregard.

"We've got to find a way to sustain our great effort for four quarters," Harden said, referencing in part his 13-0 fourth-quarter individual scoring blitz that answered the Cavaliers' 24-0 run. "Obviously mistakes happen, but for the majority of the game, we've got to make sure that offensively we're moving the ball and we're getting the shots that we want. And defensively we're limiting them to one shot and rebounding the basketball."

The Magic had seemingly reversed course from their early-season doldrums by winning five of six games before suffering back-to-back losses, the second coming on Wednesday at home to the Los Angeles Lakers. But in the Eastern Conference, modest losing skids are rarely punitive, and Orlando entered Thursday in eighth place in the conference standings despite a sub-.500 mark.

Orlando continues to make its mark defensively, but even with admirable effort, execution was lacking against the Lakers. The Magic were without starters Nikola Vucevic (right ankle) and Markelle Fultz (illness), but the players' absences didn't contribute to the loss as much as the team's stubbornness.

For the Magic to thrive, they must adhere to their identifiable traits at this stage of the season.

"Even with those other two guys we're not that team," Magic coach Steve Clifford said of his club's margin for error each time out. "We've got to play with discipline. We have to know who we're playing against and we have to take their strengths away. That's our chance."
