BLAZERS ELIMINATE ROCKETS

May 3, 2014
INDIANA SPORTS PAGE



Final Score: Portland 99, Houston 98

Damian Lillard hit the a 3-point shot as time expired as Portland beat the Rockets, 99-98, to win their Western Conference quarterfinal series in six games.

The fifth-seeded Blazers won their first postseason set since May 16, 2000 when they beat Utah in five games. 

Next up for Portland will be either the Spurs or Mavericks. That first-round series is headed for a seventh game Sunday in San Antonio.

This also marked the first time in four tries the Blazers beat the Rockets in a playoff series.

The Rockets staved off elimination with a 108-98 victory Wednesday, and seemed like they would go back to Houston for a game Sunday.

Lillard scored 25 points, LaMarcus Aldridge had 30 points and 13 rebounds for Portland.

James Harden had 34 points and Dwight Howard added 26 points and 11 boards for Houston. Parsons finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds.
