Nine road teams have won games so far in these NBA playoffs. That’s more than ALL of last season in the playoffs, per NBA.
I haven't ever seen a shot chart like this though
The Rockets' 21-20 road record is the worst among the eight Western Conference playoff teams.
Terry Stotts joked about Joel Freeland's 4 fouls in 1:15: "I didn't tell Joel we weren't in hack-a-Howard yet."
Got that number because Aldridge went 5-6 at the line on the three fouls from Asik.
Looked like McHale's answer to Aldridge was to play Asik more. 9 LA post-ups v. Asik: 3 fouls, 3 makes, 3 misses=1.222 Points Per Possession
Met Steve francis last night... One of my favorite players growing up. When I was 10 he let me come on the court and shoot during warmups.

"Game 3 is our season." James Harden
Dorell Wright also had quite the juicy stat line: 15 points, 4 rebounds, 3 blocks, 2 assists and 2 steals in 18 minutes.
Ok I have to correct my self: it's Rip City against the world!
After going 3/12 from midrange in Game 1, Aldridge went 13/19 in Game 2. http://t.co/ad731OlIHP
James Harden got into a snippy argument with a national reporter. Ended with Harden calling the reporter "weirdo."
Portland's starting line-up O-RTG tonight: 154.6. Dude.
Rockets coach Kevin McHale: "I told the guys; it's the first team to four (wins), not to two. we have to go up there and grind out a win."
So which team had the Superstars again?
Updated Blazers postseason scoring list http://t.co/XnfCqRWajT
In 2014 playoffs, only 2 players to attempt at least 19 shots and shoot less than 33 percent are James Harden (Gm 1) & James Harden (Gm 2)
Portland wins Game 2 112-105. How loud you think the Moda Center is going to be on Friday night?
Final: Portland 112, Houston 105. Blazers lead 2-0. Rockets on the ropes.
Clutch foul shooting by No. 1 team in NBA in that category, 6 for 6 in final 42 seconds.
Meyers is exactly right. Lillard did all of the little things tonight.
Lillard goes 3-14 but makes some huge free-throws as well as grabbing a huge board. 16 points, 11 assists and 7 rebounds.
Harden was 5-18 from field, 1-4 from deep, before that cluch three.
Rockets fall asleep in transition. Matthews makes it 106-100 Portland with 33 seconds left.
Just a complete breakdown by Rockets letting Matthews get past them after a made free throw.
Dwight Howard to the line for 2. This should be interesting.
It's been a forgettable shooting night for Dame (3-14, 2-7), but he damn near has a triple-double: 14 pts, 10 asts, 7 rbs.
The Toyota Center is mighty quiet right now, as you might imagine
Damian Lillard, folks.
Great hustle by Lillard to get that rebound.
Blazers MUST score here
LA is gassed.
Howard, Harden both have five fouls.
Rockets trying to claw back. They're down 102-98 with 1:08 left in game. If they continue to act like defense doesn't exist, they'll fail,
4 point Blazers lead with 1:08 left. Portland ball.
That fast break…. oh man… Aldridge ready for a layup to make it a 10-point lead. Drops it, Houston scores — and it’s six. Now it’s four
Blazers D since the first quarter has been impressive.
That's amazing to get a shot-clock violation there
Amazing — a 24-second violation at this point of a game? Embarrassing
For Aldridge, it must feel like shooting a softball into a garbage can
