Notebook: Trail Blazers 112, Rockets 105


Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Apr 24, 2014 2:14 AM - Updated Thu Apr 24, 2014 2:14 AM

THE FACT: Only three teams in NBA history (1968-69 Lakers, 93-94 Rockets, 2004-05 Mavericks) have won a best-of-seven series after losing the first two games at home.

THE LEAD: The Rockets still have no answers for Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who followed his sensational Game 1 performance with 43 points on 18-for-28 shooting, eight rebounds and three blocks to carry Portland to a 112-105 victory over Houston in Game 2 of their first-round Western Conference playoff series on Wednesday at Toyota Center. Dorell Wright keyed a much-improved performance from the Blazers' bench, finishing with 15 points on 4-for-5 shooting. Damian Lillard added a double-double of 18 points and 11 assists to go with eight rebounds.

Dwight Howard led the Rockets with 32 points, 14 rebounds and four blocks, while James Harden scored 18 points on 6-for-19 shooting and committed five turnovers before fouling out in the final minute of the contest.

Portland may not have to return to Houston this postseason, as it heads home with a 2-0 lead in the series and a chance to complete the sweep this weekend. This marks the first time the Blazers have begun a playoff series with two victories on the road since they took the first two tilts in Los Angeles during the 1977 Western Conference Finals.

QUOTABLE: "Definitely not on this type of stage in this moment. This is definitely the best I've felt going into a game, and I think this team in general just believes in me so much. They just ride the wave so well. ... I think having 15 guys have your back like that, it's great."
-- LaMarcus Aldridge on where his performance ranks among other great ones in his career

THE STAT: Aldridge joined Clyde Drexler as the only Blazer to score at least 30 points in back-to-back playoff games while also becoming the first player to register 80-plus points and 15-plus rebounds in his team's first two playoff games since Michael Jordan in April 1997.

QUOTABLE II: "Since we tried to change it up tonight, that first game he got in the paint and wore us out. Tonight, he was picking and popping and moving, and we were having a hard time running people at him because he was on the perimeter most of the time. We were trying to get the ball out of his hands as much as we could, but a lot of the stuff he did was pick and pop."
-- Houston coach Kevin McHale

TURNING POINT: The Rockets battled despite Harden and Howard's struggles in the second half, but the Blazers began to pull away in the fourth quarter after Mo Williams and Wright drained back-to-back 3-pointers to push a two-point Portland advantage to 89-81 with 8:28 remaining. Houston tried to stretch the game out long enough to complete a late rally, but breakdowns on defense and the boards sabotaged its comeback effort.

HOT: Howard was aggressive from the opening tip and got Houston off on the right foot with a historical first quarter. The 6-foot-11 center poured in 19 points on 8-for-9 shooting to go with five rebounds, breaking Hakeem Olajuwon's franchise record for scoring in the opening period of a playoff game (1995 vs. Utah Jazz).

NOT: The Blazers have dared Harden to shoot so far in this series, and Harden clearly has not been up to the task. The fifth-year guard has connected on only 29.8 percent (14-for-47) of his field-goal attempts, including 26.3 percent (5-for-19) from 3-point range.

QUOTABLE III: "I'm not worried about my offense. I'm worried about our defense as a team. When we get stops and get out in transition, everybody feels good about themselves, and that's when assists flow in and things start going well."
-- James Harden

GOOD MOVE: With the Blazers' lead trimmed to four in the final minute of the game, an alert Lillard swooped in from the perimeter to snatch the long rebound off a rare Aldridge miss. Lillard was fouled after securing the board and hit two free throws, snapping a two-minute offensive drought for reeling Portland and quieting the raucous Rocket faithful hoping for a miraculous finish.

BAD MOVE: McHale remained stubborn and refused to consistently send a double-team to force the ball out of the hands of Aldridge, allowing the 6-foot-11 All-Star to bury an assortment of jumpers against one-on-one coverage throughout the game. Many of Aldridge's shots were contested fairly well, but that simply did not cut it against arguably the NBA's best big man from mid range.

NOTABLE: Aldridge is the only Blazer in franchise history to score at least 40 points in two different playoff games, as well as the first NBA player to reach 43 points in back-to-back playoff games since Tracy McGrady in April 2003. ... After the game, Portland owner Paul Allen and general manager Neil Olshey visited with each Blazer in the locker room to show appreciation for their effort so far in the series. ... Clubs that take a 2-0 lead in a best-of-seven series have won the series 94 percent of the time (239-16). ... The Rockets have lost consecutive home games for the first time since Nov. 7 and 9, 2013.

UP NEXT: Game 3, Friday @ Portland, Game 4, Sunday @ Portland, Game 5 (if necessary), Wednesday @ Houston.
