Rockets Hold On For Big Win Over Blazers

86-83 victory gives Houston 2-1 series lead

Houston – After getting torched by Yao Ming in the first half of Game 1, the Portland Trail Blazers might as well have released a mission statement reading, “Anyone but Yao.” As in, the Blazers were willing to let any other Rockets player beat them on the offensive end, so long as it wasn’t Houston’s All-Star center.

But after Portland successfully rode that strategy to victory in Game 2, the rest of the Rockets rose to the challenge for Friday night’s Game 3 as Houston held on for an 86-83 win, despite seeing its top two regular season scorers – Yao and Ron Artest – combine for just 16 points on the evening. As a result, the Rockets now own a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 first round series which will resume Sunday night at Toyota Center.

“I’m really proud of our guys,” said Shane Battier, who scored 16 points and posted a playoff career-high with 4 blocked shots. “Yao had another tough night with them focusing on taking him away but when that happens we have to find a way to make extra points. Luis (Scola) had a great game. Carl (Landry) had a great game. Our fours are going to have the opportunity to score big and this was a nice effort.
