Notebook: Rockets 108, Trail Blazers 98


Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Thu May 01, 2014 1:51 AM - Updated Thu May 01, 2014 1:51 AM

THE FACT: Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is the first player to record at least 125 points and 35 assists in his first five career playoff games since Tim Hardaway in 1991.

THE LEAD: Dwight Howard scored 22 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and anchored the Rockets' defensive surge down the stretch, as Houston avoided elimination from the postseason with a 108-98 victory over Portland on Wednesday at Toyota Center in Game 5 of their first-round Western Conference playoff series. Jeremy Lin gave the Rockets a much-needed boost off the bench, scoring a career-playoff-high 21 points on 9-for-15 shooting to go with two steals. Despite a relatively quiet second half, Chandler Parsons finished with 20 points for Houston, which earned its first home win of this postseason.

Wesley Matthews led the Blazers, who will have another chance to close out the series Friday in Portland, with 27 points and three blocks. Damian Lillard added 26 points, eight boards and seven assists, but fellow All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge (eight points, 3-for-12) could not recapture his spectacular form from the first four games of this series. Aldridge's struggles did not prevent Portland from hanging around before putting together a late push to make it a one-possession game. The Blazers' rally fell short, however, as the Rockets closed the game on an 8-0 run to send the series back to Portland.

QUOTABLE: "I felt like I needed to be more of a spark for the team. I haven't done a great job of that this series, so I just tried to come out and be aggressive as I can be. ... Same mindset as Game 4, but tonight was just a better outcome."
-- Jeremy Lin

THE STAT: For the first time in this series, Houston outscored Portland in the fourth quarter.

TURNING POINT: With the Rockets clinging to a two-point lead as the shot clock was winding down, James Harden forced Nicolas Batum to bite on a pump fake and drove past the lengthy Blazer defender to the rim for a reverse layup that put Houston ahead 100-96 with less than four minutes to play. Lillard responded with a driving layup on the other end of the court, but Harden buried a 3-pointer on the Rockets' next possession and added three free throws in the dying seconds to help seal the result for Houston.

QUOTABLE II: "Dwight carried us the entire game. We ran him down a little bit and someone else had to make a play. Chandler was playing well. Jeremy made some big shots. I really hadn't done anything the first three quarters, so it was time to step up and make plays."
-- James Harden

HOT: With Aldridge struggling to find his rhythm against Houston's twin towers and Lillard garnering more attention after a stellar first half, Matthews carried the Blazers' offense through the third quarter with 18 points on 6-for-7 shooting.

NOT: Aldridge was essentially a non-factor on offense for the first time in this series, finishing with only eight points on 3-for-12 shooting.

QUOTABLE III: "He got two quick fouls, and it kind of threw the rhythm of the game off for us and for him. He's our franchise. ... Without him on the court, without him in rhythm, it kind of took away from us. ... They just seemed to make more plays and more shots."
-- Wesley Matthews

GOOD MOVE: Rockets coach Kevin McHale did not rely heavily on a noticeably ill Patrick Beverley and put his trust in a player who committed a horrendous turnover that led to Houston's Game 4 defeat ? Lin. Lin not only made amends for his previous miscue with a strong performance off the bench, but also took pressure off Beverley to log heavy minutes while he is still battling a 100-plus-degree fever.

NOTABLE: The Blazers wore a plaid patch on their uniforms to honor the memory of legendary coach Jack Ramsay, who died Monday in Florida at age 89 after a 15-year battle with cancer. Ramsay led the Blazers to the franchise's lone championship in 1977 and was named one of NBA's top 10 coaches of all time as part of the league's 50th anniversary celebration during the 1996-97 season. ... Portland set a playoff franchise record with 14 blocks. ... The Rockets finished with a 60-40 edge in the paint. ... Beverley said after the game that he was considering checking into an area hospital to get fluids and more treatment for his fever.

UP NEXT: Game 6, Friday @ Portland, Game 7 (if necessary), Sunday @ Houston.
