PORTLAND -- The Houston Rockets will make a change to their starting lineup for Game 3 against the Portland Trail Blazers by inserting Omer Asik into the lineup in place of Terrence Jones, a league source informed CSNNW.com.

The move will have Dwight Howard and Asik in the frontcourt together. This latest decision by Kevin McHale is a calculated tactic to try and stop LaMarcus Aldridge who has been the best player in this postseason.

The Trail Blazers are up 2-0 with tonight’s game being in Portland.
