It’s never over until it’s over! – – Houston Rockets come back from 20 down to beat Blazers
Following an overtime heart breaker to the Utah Jazz, the Houston Rockets (29-29) got a much-needed win, Thursday, against the Portland Trail Blazers (30-28). Down by 21 points during the first half, it seemed like the Trail Blazers were ready for another blowout win against the Rockets.
However, in the second half, Houston lived up to their nickname as Clutch City! James Harden and Dwight Howard carried the load on offense, while Trevor Ariza and Corey Brewer became their defensive stoppers
The Rockets have now concluded their five-game West Coast road trip, in which they went 2-4. Although it will be nice to see the Rockets return to Clutch City Saturday, it will not get any easier, as they welcome the relentless San Antonio Spurs to the Toyota Center.
