Blazers Blast Rockets Again

Rockets head into All-Star break under .500, outside of playoffs

The Rockets are in trouble. After another ugly showing in which they turned it over 20 times (leading to 31 Blazer points), the Rockets dropped their third straight game, 116-103 in Portland Wednesday night. The loss was significant as Houston now falls below .500 as they head to the All-Star break and are now 9th in the Western Conference, sitting outside of the playoff picture. Dwight Howard scored 28 points on 13-17 shooting and James Harden led the team with 34, but the Rockets had nothing at all going on. They don't seem to be on the same page at all and lack any kind of cohesion on the defensive end.
