The Rockets received a tough blow on Tuesday as they fell 121-110 to Memphis. James Harden had 41 points and six assists in addition to six rebounds. Houston squandered an early 11-point lead in the defeat. Despite Houtston's setback on Tuesday, the Rockets will enter tonight's matchup with the second-ranked scoring offense in the NBA, averaging 119.0 points per game.
Meanwhile, it was a close one, but on Monday Portland sidestepped Charlotte for a 115-112 victory. It was another big night for Damian Lillard, who shot 5-for-10 from beyond the arc and finished with 30 points and nine assists. Anthony Tolliver had a season-high 16 points, all in the fourth quarter.
However, the Trail Blazers found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 132-108 punch to the gut against Houston the last time the two teams met in November.
