Still, Houston will have to beat one of LA or San Antonio and I still don't think they can do it.
And don't forget New Orleans and Utah too.
Wing defenders can only do so much against Chris Paul and Deron Williams, who may well be the two biggest individual threats in the West not named Kobe.
If I had to make a prediction, I would say that this team is still in the bottom half of the West playoff picture and doesn't make it out of the first round.
