HOUSTON: LAST SEASON: 65-17, lost in Western Conference finals.
COACH: Mike D'Antoni (fourth season, 15th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G James Harden (30.4 ppg), G Chris Paul (18.6 ppg), F P.J. Tucker, (6.1 ppg), F James Ennis (7.1 ppg), C Clint Capela (13.9 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Trevor Ariza, F Ryan Anderson, F Luc Mbah a Moute
KEY ADDITIONS: F Carmelo Anthony, Ennis, G Michael Carter-Williams
PLAYERS TO WATCH: A year after Anthony was not amenable to coming off the bench in Oklahoma City, the 10-time All-Star seems ready to accept a reserve role in Houston if it means helping the Rockets to a title. The addition of the talented Anthony, along with Ennis to pick up the slack on defense Houston lost in Ariza leaves the Rockets slightly better than they were a year ago when they lost to Golden State in the conference finals.
OUTLOOK: Harden, last year's MVP, and Paul should be even better in their second year together and Anthony adds a new dimension which greatly upgrades Houston's second unit. Ennis will have to pair with Tucker to provide a defensive presence and Capela must take another step this season after signing a $90 million contract this offseason if the Rockets hope to finally get past the Warriors and win their first title since back-to-back championships in 1994-95.
LA CLIPPERS: LAST SEASON: 42-40, missed playoffs.
COACH: Doc Rivers (sixth season, 20th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: F Tobias Harris (18.6 ppg), G Patrick Beverley (12.2 ppg), C Marcin Gortat (8.4 ppg, Washington), F Danilo Gallinari (15.3 ppg), G Avery Bradley (14.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C DeAndre Jordan, F Blake Griffin, G Austin Rivers
KEY ADDITIONS: Gortat, F Luc Mbah a Moute, F Mike Scott, G Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, G Jerome Robinson
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Harris will look to build on the promise he showed after coming over in the Griffin trade. Gortat takes over from the departed Jordan in the middle. Beverley, Gallinari and Bradley have the most to prove since they missed big chunks of last season.
OUTLOOK: With Jordan, Griffin and Chris Paul cleared out, the Clippers lack a star player for the first time in years. This group's biggest priority will be to stay healthy after injuries decimated the roster last season and forced Rivers to start an NBA-leading 37 different lineups. Beverley has dubbed this team "Clamp City," saying the Clippers will hang their hat on defense. They face a tough start to the schedule, with 12 of their first 14 games against teams that made the playoffs last season.
Rockets stay in LA to face Clippers

LOS ANGELES -- The Houston Rockets' second game in Los Angeles in two nights will be hard pressed to meet the intensity of the first one.

The Rockets will take on the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night, a day after claiming an electric 124-115 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in LeBron James' home debut.

An on-court fight with just over four minutes remaining Saturday led to the ejection of the Rockets' Chris Paul and the Lakers' Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram.

It is unknown if Paul, a former Clippers player, will face league discipline by the time Sunday's game tips off at 9 p.m. ET.

The Clippers were able to sit back and enjoy the fireworks Saturday night after posting their first victory of the season Friday when they defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-92.

For the Rockets, there was no surprise what fueled their victory. James Harden scored 36 points against the Lakers, and Paul had 28 points and 10 assists. It was a much-improved performance from their season opener Wednesday when they gave up 131 points in a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans.

"I would hope that whether we're picking up five-on-five on the playground we'd have a sense of urgency," Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said heading into Saturday's game. "I don't think that will change anything."

Unlike the Rockets, the Clippers still are in search of their identity. Danilo Gallinari and Tobias Harris each scored 26 points in the Clippers' victory over the Thunder, and Harris added 10 rebounds. Lou Williams scored 17 points off the bench for Los Angeles, who defeated an Oklahoma City team without Russell Westbrook (knee).

The Clippers were also much improved in their second game after also losing their season opener. The Clippers fell 107-98 to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday.

The Clippers' Luc Mbah a Moute not only played with Paul on the Clippers, both played with the Rockets last season, so there should be some familiarity on both sides.

"We do need to get close this season because there are a lot of new guys and lot of guys coming together for the first time," Mbah a Moute said, according to the Los Angeles Times. "So we need that camaraderie. It's been that way since training camp. It's good. When you have good chemistry, you need to lean on that."

The Clippers have put an emphasis on defense this season, which is why Mbah a Moute was brought back. The defensive-minded backcourt consists of Patrick Beverley and Avery Bradley, who will have their hands full, even if Paul is suspended for Sunday's game.

Harden scored just 18 points in the Rockets' season-opening loss, but his 36 on Saturday was more like the player that averaged 30.4 points last season.

While the Clippers are getting offense from Gallinari, Harris and Williams, they are also getting quality minutes from big men Marcin Gortat and 7-foot-3 Boban Marjanovic, who has averaged 15.5 points in two games and has been earning the trust of coach Doc Rivers.
