It's not easy to beat the same team twice in as many days, but the Portland Trail Blazers remain a mess, and nothing changed last night. The Trail Blazers entered last night's contest, losing their last five games by an average of 19.8 points while not playing a lick of defense. The Houston Rockets are simply the better team overall, even if they have issues of their own and have had issues covering numbers in their own right. The Trail Blazers are just god awful right now and are counting the days until the off season. I'll lay the points again.
