That is not a squad that will get far in the West. Maybe in two or three years they'll be worth something,but this year? Only if other teams collapse.
And don't forget,those number last night came against a really bad Detroit team. I'll be impressed when he does it consistently against real opponents.
37-6-11 is good against any team but...OK.
However, you don't think it's possible for Houston to beat out Sacramento, Phoenix, Denver, New Orleans, Golden State or Utah for the 8th spot? It's not out of the realm of possibility. And any team that can make it to the playoffs in the West is a good team. Utah was a fairly good team last season until the Spurs dismantled them.
Houston's not a bad team. Put them in the East and I'm fairly confident they make the playoffs there.
