Whatever made Russell a bad free throw shooter might be injury related. If he can return to the shooting he had two years ago the Rockets could be dangerous. If Russ plays with the energy he plays with and Harden can play off ball considerably more they could be very dangerous under MDA. Tucker has evolved to a high level 3-d forward and Capella and Eric Gordon round out a nice top 5.
Hope they face the Clippers
The Rockets are going to be really good. Westbrook and Harden have their flaws and aren't an ideal match, but they're still two of the best attack-guards in the league right now, Tucker-Capela-EG are solid role players and MDA is a great coach. They need to find wing-depth somehow, but the potential of their top 5 is really high.
