Houston Routs the Trail Blazers Friday night
The Houston Rockets are the top-scoring team in the NBA. Friday night at the Rose Garden, they showed why. With James Harden leading the way, the Rockets blew out Portland 116-98 for their fourth straight victory. Harden went for 33 points, seven rebounds and six assists as Houston remained in seventh place in the Western Conference playoff race, a game behind Golden State.
"He makes that team go," Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge said. "I'm not saying he's LeBron (James), but he's like LeBron in that he likes to pass the ball, he's so good at the pick-and-roll and he's so hard to guard."
