Game #23: Houston Rockets vs. Portland Trail Blazers

New, comments

The Rockets have already downed the surprisingly dominant Blazers once this season but the Blazers have been busy. Robin Lopez has been playing out of his mind, Aldridge/Batum/Lillard are exceeding expectations and Portland now has a adequate bench. Will the Rockets be able to repeat their success behind enemy lines?
