VERY DEEP HOLE

Repeat: Harden struggles, Aldridge dominates, Rockets down 0-2

The Rockets are in a world of hurt. After losing home court advantage with a shocking Game 1 loss, the Rockets dug themselves into a deeper hole Wednesday night, falling 112-105 to the Blazers, sending the series to Portland down 0-2. LaMarcus Aldridge (39 of his 43 points came through three quarters) could not be contained in any way as he drained mid-range jumpers all night, but more worrisome? James Harden, who has dominated Portland his entire Rockets career, again came up with a clunker, going 6-19 from the field. MK Bower and Clutch break down what happened in Game 2 in a post-game podcast.
