Biggest Needs for Houston Rockets During 2014 Offseason

Thanks to Damian Lillard's improbable three-pointer with 0.9 seconds left in Game 6, the Houston Rockets were dismissed from the postseason after one round. James Harden and Dwight Howard put in valiant efforts, but after falling behind early in the series, the road ahead was simply too steep.

It was a high-scoring, electric series that showed off the best of what Houston has to offer.

But it also revealed the slightest of cracks in an otherwise promising team. The Rockets will be back. The Rockets also have some work to do.

This is no time to blow things up, no time to sound any alarms.

If Lillard's three rims out, we're looking at a very winnable Game 7 in Houston. After that, anything would have been possible. All the same, the line between very good teams and legitimate title contenders is a thin one. This organization won't rest until it's primed to win close series like this one.

As Houston looks to take that next step, it will have a few needs to address.
