Houston
Portland

[PORTLAND] — The Portland Trail Blazers played host to the Houston Rockets last night and the Blazers did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 117-107 victory. The win bumps Portland's record up to 37-38 on the season, while the loss drags Houston's down to 51-24. Though a win's a win and Trail Blazers fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

Ask anybody, however - Lillard included - and the most important part is that the Trail Blazers walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, James Harden did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Rockets. Harden's 30 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Portland's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Rockets, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Blazers will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Blazers will be a date with the Phoenix Suns while the visiting Rockets will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Golden State Warriors.
