Houston is in a must-win situation Wednesday night. But if the Blazers lose the game, guess who has all the pressure in Game 3?
That astounding sixth-foul call on Dwight Howard was the worst of the night.
The Trail Blazers stole Game 1 of their first-round NBA playoff series over Houston -- and Coach Terry Stotts was a big difference maker.
LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard warmed under the playoff spotlight. James Harden and Dwight Howard, not so much.
Expectations are very high in Houston -- an NBA championship.
