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.
SAN ANTONIO: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost 4-3 to Denver in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Gregg Popovich (24th season, 1245-575).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Dejounte Murray (missed last season with knee injury), G Bryn Forbes (11.8 ppg), G DeMar DeRozan (21.2), F LaMarcus Aldridge (21.3), C Jakob Poeltl (5.5).
KEY ADDITIONS: F DeMarre Carroll, F Trey Lyles, G/F Keldon Johnson, F Luka Samanic
PLAYERS TO WATCH: DeRozan spent most of last season processing a trade that unexpectedly sent him to the Spurs and away from the Toronto Raptors, the franchise he pledged his devotion to ' then watched them win a title. Murray's injury also forced DeRozan to become the team's main distributor for the first time in his career. DeRozan set a career high with 6.2 assists per game but also had his second-lowest scoring average in six seasons. Murray is back and spent the offseason sending video of specific plays to show the 30-year-old guard how he could help him score more easily.
OUTLOOK: The Spurs continue to get younger and faster while trying to maintain their veteran presence and corporate knowledge. The latter received a huge boost with the addition of Hall of Famer Tim Duncan as an assistant coach. Duncan's knowledge of the Spurs' system, work ethic and camaraderie should help the team's development as it attempts to an establish an identity separate from but similar to the Big Three era spearheaded by Duncan that led to five NBA championships. Murray's return along with the return of White, expected emergence of Lonnie Walker IV and addition of Carroll should make the Spurs among the best wing defenses in the league.
Spurs draw Rockets with Houston's Harden, Gordon on sideline

If the San Antonio Spurs are going to continue their impressive string of playoff appearances, they likely will need to win their final two games of the NBA's reworked regular season.

The Spurs (31-38) look to take the first step on Tuesday afternoon against the Lone Star State-rival Rockets (44-25) near Orlando, and Houston will be down some serious manpower.

Guards James Harden (rest) and Eric Gordon (ankle) won't play in Tuesday's game, the Rockets announced Monday.

There will be a play-in game for the final spot in the Western Conference. Memphis still resides in eighth place in the standings, but its lead is just a half-game over ninth-place Portland and one full game ahead of No. 10 San Antonio.

The Spurs, winners of two straight and four of their six contests in the bubble, head into Tuesday's game on the heels of a 122-113 victory over New Orleans on Sunday. DeMar DeRozan scored 27 points, Rudy Gay contributed 19 off the bench and Dejounte Murray had 18 for San Antonio in the win.

Derrick White, who has led the Spurs' defense, hit for 16 points before being forced from the game early in the third quarter. He is listed as questionable with a bruised left knee.

The Spurs have played the games in this restart without starters LaMarcus Aldridge, Trey Lyles and Bryn Forbes. But they are still on the hunt to be the first team in NBA history to make 23 consecutive playoff appearances, and it would be foolish to discount San Antonio's chances or doubt its hunger to keep alive that streak.

"If we're able to be in that ninth spot, that's quite a victory -- it would be huge," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "It says a lot about how this young group has come together with three of the starters out. I'm already thrilled with how they played, and it'd be really fantastic if we could get that."

The Rockets, who have already clinched a playoff berth, have three games remaining and could still finish as high as third in the West.

Austin Rivers scored a career-high 41 points off the bench to lead Houston to a 129-112 win against Sacramento on Sunday. Rivers had the most points by a Rockets' reserve since Eric "Sleepy" Floyd (40) in 1991. He said afterward that he understands his role his high-scoring team.

"I believe I'm a premier scorer, but I'm on a team where that's not required of me every night," Rivers said. "So you've got to play a role, and buy in."

Harden added 32 points for Houston, while Ben McLemore hit for 20 and Robert Covington and Jeff Green scored 12 points each for the Rockets.

Houston has won four of its five games in the restart and captured Sunday's contest despite playing without Russell Westbrook. Westbrook, who has missed the past two games with a bruised right quadriceps, will play Tuesday, per head coach Mike D'Antoni, but sit out the following game against the Indiana Pacers.

D'Antoni said his team's success while in the Orlando bubble has been helped by its the defensive end.

"We've put a lot of emphasis on (defense), with a lot of talk and everybody has bought in so it makes it fun to play that way," D'Antoni said. "I think they're starting to enjoy it even."
