Portland played vs La Lakers last night and Lakers won at home. Portland are not a good road team. Houston might have bad records but they were clicking on the road.
You can't compare that Portland team who lost thier last 2 games on the road and are 4/10 on the road to the MIGHTY Houston Rockets who have won 3 on the road and were on a 5 game winning streak.
Rockets game was so much tougher with that HUGE momentum. While Portland were lost their last 2 road games and won their last 6 home games.
“I asked them if it wasn't too much trouble, if I wasn't being too pushy, if they could execute what we were trying to do. And if it didn't make them too angry, if they also wanted to play some defense on the other end, that would be great.”
