Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets couldn't find the November form they used to hand the Blazers one of their four losses. LaMarcus Aldridge put up 31p & 17r while Dwight Howard posted 32p & 17r.

The Trail Blazers got their revenge on the Houston Rockets with a 111 - 104 victory in Portland to continue their franchise best start of 19 - 4.

The Houston Rockets kept pace until the start of the fourth quarter when the game stood at 76 - 76. The quarter began with 10 unanswered Trail Blazer points. The Rockets never got closer than five points from then on.

LaMarcus Aldridge flashed his all-star credentials with a mammoth 31 p, 25 r performance taunting Rockets fans who dream of one day seeing him in a Houston uniform. Aldridge started the game with a 1 of 8 shooting performance. he finished the game with a 11 of 14 shooting performance.

Jeremy Lin was a non-factor in his return to the court posting 5 p, 2 r, 2 a in 15 minutes. After returning from a two week absence he was a step slow on offense and regularly leaked drives on the defensive end (more than usual).

Patrick Beverley recorded a career high 11 rebounds. A total which eclipsed his 9 points.

The Rockets were without head coach Kevin McHale after the passing of his mother.

Houston had previously defeated the Blazers in the Rose City in a November game 116 - 101.
