The Portland Trail Blazers gave up a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter Sunday night in Houston, eventually losing 118-113 in overtime to fall to 42-21 on the season.
The Trail Blazers were outscored 33-21 in the fourth quarter and went scoreless in the final 2:15 of overtime to drop their second-straight game in heartbreaking fashion.
“That was a tough loss,” said Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts. “A game that, I thought we did a good job of controlling it for a good part of it. We had our opportunities to win it. They made some tough shots. I thought we we overcame some adversity and still put ourselves in a position to win, but we didn’t close it out.”
After getting off to a terrible start in Friday night’s road loss to the Mavericks, the Trail Blazers flipped the proverbial script versus the Rockets, getting off to a 10-0.
