Houston looks oddly vulnerable and beatable in this game. Hopefully it's not a mirage! A win would be a great way to start this tough stretch of the season.

Part of it may be Houston is on the second of a B2B. If Portland can hold onto the lead heading into the 4th quarter I like their chances against Houston's tired legs

The bench unit needs to hold this cushion.

Portland pushing back against Houston's comeback attempt - I love seeing the composure out there!

Hey Russ, maybe Lillard can't guard you, but he sure can beat you!!!

Lillard and CJ continue to get better integrating Melo into a fluid attack. When Nurkic and Collins are back, this team could be the best we've had since the 99 team that collapsed in the WCF against the Lakers.
