Lillard leads Blazers past Rockets in OT
Portland, OR (Sports Network) - Damian Lillard scored 14 of his 27 points in the final 8:03, rallying the Portland Trail Blazers to another overtime win over the Houston Rockets, this time by a 119-117 decision at the Rose Garden.
The Blazers pulled out a 95-85 overtime victory at the Toyota Center on Nov. 3, and needed to erase a 16-point deficit Friday just to force an extra five minutes.
Nicolas Batum was the catalyst for the comeback, finishing with 35 points, while LaMarcus Aldridge added 29 points, including the go-ahead free throw late in OT to give Portland its second straight win coming off a four-game slide.
James Harden logged 29 points to pace the Rockets, losers in five of their last seven games. Omer Asik added 16 points and 16 rebounds before fouling out, while Jeremy Lin logged 11 points, 11 assists and six boards in defeat.
