Jalen Green leads Rockets past Trail Blazers

Jalen Green propelled the Houston Rockets (40-41) to a 116-107 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers (21-60) with a 26-point performance.

Joining Green in the spotlight, Jock Landale contributed 20 points, while Aaron Holiday delivered a standout performance off the bench with 18 points for the Rockets.

Despite Portland’s efforts, led by rookie Scoot Henderson’s 30-point display, the Trail Blazers fell short against a resilient Rockets team.

Houston’s dominance was evident as they surged to a 20-point lead in the third quarter, maintaining control throughout the game despite Portland’s attempts to narrow the gap.

With Fred VanVleet sidelined due to a right hip contusion, rookie Amen Thompson stepped up, recording 17 points and 15 rebounds for the Rockets.

Portland, grappling with injuries to key players like Anfernee Simons and Jerami Grant, struggled to contain Houston’s offensive firepower throughout the game.
