The Blazers can finish off the Houston Rockets with a win in front of their own fans tonight at the Moda Center. Portland leads the best of seven series 3-games to 2.

The rockets staved off elimination Wednesday night with a 108-98 victory in Houston. Dwight Howard had 22 points and 14 rebounds to lead the way.

Portland needs a return to dominance out of LaMarcus Aldridge, who was held to just 8 points in the game 5 loss. Through the first four games the all-star forward was averaging over 35 points per game.

If the Rockets prevail the final game of the series would be Sunday in Houston.
