Blazers F LaMarcus Aldridge now has a postseason franchise-record 46 points http://t.co/KA6wDTpJoV
LaMarcus Aldridge is not on this planet at the current moment.
Aldridge with his best game ever. Not even close.
5 on LA now. That would be disaster for Portland.
Also, Joel Meyers has been great on TNT. Great with the Pels, one of the best.
It's actually 11:40 in Houaton
Aldridge with a tip. 106-all with 2.9 left. Great second effort by he and Lillard. 43 points and 17 boards for LA. Houston ball.
Aldridge's 43rd points and 17th rebound on that tip, ties game 106-106 with 2.9 seconds left. Amazing game.
LaMarcus Aldridge tips in the game-tying point. Rockets have 2.9 seconds to make something happen.
Harden "earning" two shots. Tough call against Matthews standing straight up. HOU up 2, Portland ball with 7.2 left.
Whoa…. Monster three by Lillard
4 possessions of Hack A Howard: 4 points. It's worked out pretty well for Portland in the 4th. Portland ball down 3 32 secs left.
Portland still has a timeout left after this one… can go for a quick two and then foul. Or do you want a three?
Incredible how often he makes a big one.
Houston still gets the 2-for-1 there. Portland's gotta get the board here.
Of Aldridge's 15 field goals, 11 have been in the paint.
Rockets hold a 102-101 lead with 42.1 seconds left in the game. Houston has the ball after timeout.
Aldridge with two HUGE free throws. Blazers in a decent spot but they need a stop BAD.
Great play by Jones.
The Aldridge turnover was just a killer. As was the Matthews miss of a wide-open three
Dwight Howard called back to the Rockets bench, won’t check in until after the offensive possession.
LaMarcus Aldridge has 39 points, 15 rebounds and two blocks with 2:05 left in this contest. Yep, he was ready for tonight.
C-Webb right on point. HOU with major dilemma re: doubling or not vs LA
Dwight Howard will check back in, Rockets up three with 2:07 left.
11-0 Blazers run
LaMarcus Aldridge ties the game at 98 with 2:46 left.
Aldridge with one more coming. Chance to tie with under 3 left
This is such a Portland-iike game. Flounder around much of the night and then charge late.
Make that 98-95 Rockets after A driving layup from Lillard.
Hack A Howard working for Blazers. 5-point game. Aldridge has 35 and 15, Lillard heating up. 3:28 left
Yeah, Howard is out
Hacking Howard paid off for Portland. They have to take him out now, I assume
Patrick Beverley just checked out of the game, high-fived Kevin McHale and then... sat in the coach’s seat on the Rockets bench.
LaMarcus Aldridge (33 points and 14 rebounds) has posted new career playoff highs in both categories.
Beverley's intro in Game 3 back in Portland should fun. Might need the Felton-meter to measure that one.
But come on, Blazer fans. This one isn’t about officiating. Not in the slightest. Gotta play better than that.
Just like that, Robin Lopez picks up his 5th foul. They're losing it.
In earlier NBA days, Beverley wouldn’t have lasted 10 minutes in this game. Somebody would have flat taken him out.
Tech on RoLo. Not the best time. 94-83 Houston with 5:44 left.
Howard and Lopez were jawing at each other there, but Lopez got the T. Remember, Howard already has one, and would ejected w/another.
Robin Lopez has been assessed a technical foul for jawing at Dwight Howard, who elbowed him in the midsection.
Lopez is BBQ chicken tho
Blazers being killed on the boards in the second half. 28-10 in second half.
Lillard coming back in. Let’s see what he has left.
Patrick Beverley defended a hobbling Lillard all the way to the bench.
Damian Lillard is going back in the game. Guess he had to stretch it out. Whatever it was. Look like it was the right thigh/hip area.
Looking like Lillard will stay in, but not exactly moving well.
Beverley shadowed a limping Lillard all the way to the bench. Somebody really does need to set a nice, legal hard pick on him
Lillard looks like he made lower body contact on a screen with Asik. Getting checked out right now. 91-81 Rox with 7:28 left.
Lillard limped off. Looked like he got hit in thigh when Howard screened him, but hard to tell.
Damian Lillard is holding his right thigh, grimacing. He's bending down in pain.
Damian Lillard just hurt his right leg trying to run around a Dwight Howard screen. It was so bad, Stotts had to call a timeout.
Damian Lillard appears to be injured. He’s wincing and going to the bench during the TO.
Lillard is hurt
Mo Williams gets a Flagrant 1 foul on that play on Patrick Beverley. I didn't see a Flagrant 1 on that play. Man, it's the playoffs!
That’s a tough call for the Blazers, but really — what was Williams trying to do? Just let him go… he’d probably miss it anyway
Officials change Williams' foul on Beverley to a Flagrant 1. He'll get 2 FTs and Rockets will get the ball.
Flagrant 1 on Mo.
If Beverley is on your team, you love him. If he isnt, you hate him.
Could be a critical call here on flagrant.
As Beverley literally skips round the Toyota Center court after taking a hard foul, the Rockets fans eat it up. They love his antics.
