Notebook: Trail Blazers 99, Rockets 98


Kerry Eggers, for NBA.com
Posted Sat May 03, 2014 3:05 AM - Updated Sat May 03, 2014 3:05 AM

THE FACT: Damian Lillard becomes the first player to make a buzzer-beating shot to win a playoff series since Utah's John Stockton against Houston in 1997.

THE LEAD: Lillard's 3-pointer as time expired gave Portland a 99-98 victory over Houston Friday night at the Moda Center.

Lillard's game-winner closed out the Rockets in six games and sends the Trail Blazers into the Western Conference semifinals. Portland will face the winner of the San Antonio-Dallas series, which stands tied at 3-3.

LaMarcus Aldridge collected 30 points and 13 rebounds and Lillard added 25 points for the Blazers, who won a playoff series for the first time since 2000.

James Harden scored 34 points and Dwight Howard contributed 26 points and 11 rebounds for the Rockets.

Chandler Parsons had given Houston a 98-97 lead on a put-back with 0.9 remaining. After a timeout, Portland inbounded the ball to Lillard, who turned and launched a 25-footer that found nothing but net as time expired.

QUOTABLE: "It was a hell of a win. I don't know that it could have been any more dramatic."
-- Portland coach Terry Stotts

THE STAT: Aldridge averaged 29.8 points in the series, second highest by a Trail Blazer in history behind Clyde Drexler's 31.4-point average vs. Phoenix in 1992.

TURNING POINT: When Lillard's shot tickled the twine, touching off a massive celebration in the Moda Center. What else?

HOT: Lillard scored 25 points on only 14 shots, shooting 8-for-14 from the field, including 6-for-10 from 3-point range.

NOT: Houston's Jeremy Lin and Portland's Wesley Matthews were both 4-for-13 from the field.

QUOTABLE II: "It hurts. When you put everything you got on the floor and somebody hits you with a dagger like that, it's a tough pill to swallow."
-- Dwight Howard

GOOD MOVE: After an eight-point performance in Game 5, Aldridge was much more aggressive Friday night, especially early. He had 21 points and seven rebounds in the first half.

BAD MOVE: For some reason, Houston coach Kevin McHale had the 6-foot-9 Parsons guarding the 6-foot-3 Lillard on the last play. For some reason, Parsons didn't play between Lillard and the inbound pass, allowing Lillard to get free for a open 3-pointer.

QUOTABLE III: "That's definitely the biggest shot of my life -- so far."
-- Damian Lillard

NOTABLE: It was Portland's first playoff series win since 2000, the longest such drought in the Western Conference. ... Lillard scored seven points in the final minute of the first quarter -- on a 3-point shot and a four-point play. ... In the six games, Houston scored 672 points, Portland 670.

UP NEXT: For Portland, a Western Conference semifinal series against either San Antonio or Dallas.
