The Rockets entered the series as a favorite, hailed by virtually every national pundit as a lock to breeze past the Blazers thanks to their playoff-tested All-Star duo, Dwight Howard and James Harden. But on Sunday night, it was the Blazers’ All-Stars, LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard, who put on a show.

His (Aldridge) 46 points were a career and playoff franchise high, surpassing the 45 Bonzi Wells recorded in 2003. He became the first player in franchise history to record at least 30 points and 15 rebounds in a playoff game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. And he became the first player in the NBA to register at least 46 points, 18 rebounds and two blocks in the postseason since Hakeem Olajuwon in 1987.
