Shane Battier apparently contracted either food poisoning or a stomach virus
before game 1 and went to a Portland hospital before game 1. Battier said he felt weak throughout the game. "It was terrible. I didn’t feel good yesterday. I was still sluggish. The adrenaline got me through the game."
That probably explains his poor showing in game 1, when he shot 1-5. Battier still had the highest +/- for the Rockets.
Good luck to Portland in game 2.
