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.
GOLDEN STATE: LAST SEASON: 57-25, lost 4-2 to Toronto in NBA Finals.
COACH: Steve Kerr (sixth season, 322-88).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Stephen Curry (27.3 ppg), G D'Angelo Russell (21.1 with Brooklyn), F Draymond Green (7.4), F Alfonzo McKinnie (4.7), C Kevon Looney (6.3).
KEY LOSSES: G/F Kevin Durant, G Shaun Livingston, G Andre Iguodala, C DeMarcus Cousins, G Quinn Cook.
KEY ADDITIONS: G Russell, C Willie-Cauley Stein, F Robinson III.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: All-Star guards Curry and Russell getting in sync with their communication on the court, which might be a work in progress but they seem to be having fun as they shoot together at practice the way Curry and Durant used to do with good-natured competitions. Curry is the oldest player on the team at 31.
OUTLOOK: The new-look Warriors lost two-time NBA Finals MVP Durant to Brooklyn. After five straight trips to the Finals, they will look to find their way in new Chase Center with the leadership of returning veterans Curry and Green as Klay Thompson works back from left knee surgery after he tore his ACL in a Game 6 Finals loss to the Raptors that clinched Toronto its first title. Thompson's surgery was July 2 and he is expected to be out at least until the All-Star break, leaving Curry and Russell as backcourt mates in the meantime.
Tinkering Rockets test style against stumbling Warriors

The Houston Rockets are expected to trot out an even newer lineup Thursday night when they return from the All-Star break to face the Golden State Warriors in San Francisco.

Since last seen beating the Boston Celtics 116-105 on Feb. 11, the Rockets have agreed to terms with forwards Jeff Green and DeMarre Carroll, each of whom had been cut by a fellow Western Conference playoff contender.

Green signed a 10-day contract Wednesday, giving him in essence a four-game tryout to see how well he fits into the Rockets' system. He practiced with his new team for the first time Wednesday in San Francisco.

Green was waived by the Utah Jazz in December after averaging 7.8 points in 30 games.

Carroll was waived by the San Antonio Spurs earlier this week after agreeing to a contract buyout. Carroll (2.2-point average in 15 games) had to clear waivers before signing with the Rockets. That announcement is expected by Thursday.

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni, whose team has the fifth-best record in the Western Conference (34-20), admitted there might be a feeling-out period for his rearranged cast.

"We're trying to get better. At the same time, we have to win games," he expressed to reporters Wednesday. "We want to get a good seed if possible. The most important thing is to get the team right and playing well as we go into the playoffs. The second thing is to get a good seed. Our objective is to do both."

The Rockets went into the break having won five of seven to move 1 1/2 games ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Dallas Mavericks. They've gone 2-2 since trading big man Clint Capela to the Atlanta Hawks in a four-team deal that netted forward Robert Covington from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Covington averaged 12.3 points and 6.3 rebounds in those four games, shooting 11-for-32 (34.4 percent) from 3-point range.

The Rockets have attempted 40 or more 3-pointers in nine straight games, including all four since Covington has been adding an average of eight per game to the total.

They made 21 of 45 when they beat Golden State 129-112 at home in November but then made just 16 of 51 in a Christmas Day loss in San Francisco.

The Warriors took a four-game losing streak into the break, and due in part to having had the past seven days off, haven't won a home game in over a month. They've gone 0-4 at their new home venue since beating the Orlando Magic on Jan. 18.

Golden State (12-43), which has two fewer wins than any other team, enters the final 27 games counting the days until the arrival of three key players -- Stephen Curry from his broken hand, Klay Thompson from his torn ACL, and an expected high draft pick in June.

Curry, who sustained his injury in the fourth game of the season in October, is scheduled for an examination next Friday. He is expected at that point to get a green light to return to practice, and shortly thereafter to games.

Thompson probably won't be back this season.

The recent addition of Andrew Wiggins and the upcoming draft pick, whoever it might be, had Warriors owner Joe Lacob gushing about a bright future during the All-Star break.

"You add one guy and it can change everything," he said. "We already happen to have two of the greatest shooters of all time. Look at the games. We've only been losing by six or eight points. But add those two guys, and we're already pretty good."

While the Rockets were adding players over the break, the Warriors were subtracting. Jeremy Pargo and Zach Norvell Jr., signed to 10-day contracts earlier this month, were not retained.
