PORTLAND, Ore. -- James Harden snapped out of his slump. Omer Asik stopped LaMarcus Aldridge. But it was rookie Troy Daniels who made all the difference for the Houston Rockets. Daniels, who spent time in the D-League this season and didnt make his pro debut until March 5, hit a 3-pointer with 11.9 seconds left to lift the Rockets a 121-116 overtime victory over the Trail Blazers on Friday night and narrow Portlands first-round playoff advantage to 2-1. Harden finished with a career playoff-best 37 points and Dwight Howard added 24 points and 14 rebounds for the Rockets. Aldridge had more than 40 points in each of Portlands victories in the first two games in Houston. But Asik did a good job of shutting him down in Game 3, holding the All-Star forward to 23 points. The Blazers were led by Damian Lillard with 30 points. Portland trailed by as many as 11 points in the final quarter but Nicolas Batum hit a 3-pointer with 41 seconds left to tie the game at 110. Harden missed a half-court shot at the buzzer to send the game to overtime. Lillards layup gave Portland a 116-112 lead with 3:08 left in the extra period. Jeremy Lin hit a jumper from the top of the key before Hardens fadeaway tie it with 1:51 to go. Aldridge missed a jumper over Howard but Lin missed a 3-pointer on the other end before Daniels nailed his 3-pointer. Daniels finished with nine points in the game, all 3s. Before the game, coach Kevin McHale told Daniels to "be ready," the undrafted signee out of Virginia Commonwealth said. "He competes," McHale said. "He dives on the floor for balls. Hes a tough kid." Batum missed a 3 with 4.9 seconds left and Harden made free throws for the final margin. Only three teams have come back to win after losing the first two games of a seven-game series at home: The last was the 2004-05 Mavericks, who came back against the Rockets. Houston is 0-7 overall when falling behind 0-2 in the first round since the 1983-84 expansion. Game 4 is scheduled for Sunday at the Moda Center. "We havent done anything yet," McHale said. "Weve won one game. But it feels a lot better than losing." The Blazers hadnt opened a playoff series 2-0 since 1977, when they got the early jump on the Lakers en route to the Western Conference title. Portland went on to beat Philadelphia for its lone NBA championship. McHale, who acknowledged before the game that his team was frustrated, tinkered with the lineup and started Asik in place of Terrence Jones. Asik did a good job in keeping Aldridge out of the paint and the Rockets responded by coming out with intensity. "The came out and played as they should down two games," Aldridge said. Patrick Beverleys 3-pointer gave the Rockets and early 19-13 lead before Harden finished off the first quarter with a 3-pointer to put Houston up 35-24. Harden and Beverley each finished the first quarter with 11 points. Harden was the leagues top shooting guard in the regular season, but he was 14 of 47 from the field in his opening two playoff games for his worst two-game stretch of the season. Lillards 3-pointer tied it at 38, but Mo Williams and Robin Lopez each hit baskets to put Portland in front and cap a 16-point run. Lillard led all scorers with 16 points at the half and the Blazers had a 55-54 edge. Harden and Chandler Parsons made consecutive 3-pointers to give the Rockets a 71-65 lead midway through the third period. But Portland -- bolstered by a raucous hometown crowd -- kept Houstons lead in single digits until Hardens 3-pointer made it 90-80 with 10:18 to go in the game. Hardens jumper gave the Rockets a 100-91 lead with 6:21 left, but Lilliard made free throws that closed Portland to within 103-98 before a falling-down jumper and a foul shot to make it 103-101 with 4:05 left. Lillard scored on a layup to put Portland in front 107-106 with 1:59 left. After Harden made four straight free throws, Batum made the 3-pointer to tie it. "I thought we had some good looks down the stretch,Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "Lin Harden and Daniels made their shots. And we didnt." NOTES: Houstons Terrence Jones went to Portlands Jefferson High School, leading the team to three straight Class 5A championships before playing for Kentucky. ... Among the fans in the crowd for the Blazers first home playoff game since 2011 were Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who grew up in Portland. ... The Blazers have made at least eight 3-pointers in the in three straight post-season games for the first time in franchise history. Radko Gudas Jersey . Team officials did not indicate the extent of the injury Saturday, simply listing Rose with "left knee soreness." Rose has played two preseason games without any sign of problems. The first NBA game in South America now will be missing its biggest star. Eric Lindros Jersey .

Shayne Gostisbehere Jersey . Notes on P.K. Subban, Dale Weise, Erik Haula, Mikael Granlund, Ilya Bryzgalov and more. Robert Hagg Jersey . That assertion is getting harder and harder to make, especially given the way 23-year-old Danilo Gallinari has been playing this season.After 256 regular season games and 10 playoff games, there are only four quarters of NFL football left to play. And those are the most important four quarters of the season. Super Bowl XLIX from Arizona is a tough game to pick as far as who is going win and why; its easy to make an argument on the plus side for both teams. In last years Super Bowl, we watched the implosion of the Broncos and one of the NFLs best teams, but this should not happen again. I remember sitting in my seat at MetLife stadium anticipating the NFLs top offence taking the field ready to perform. Then, to my surprise, seeing the shotgun snap sail over the head of Peyton Manning for a safety and a 2-0 Seattle lead. I remember thinking the start couldnt have been much worse for Broncos. But not long later, after seeing Kam Chancellor punish Demaryius Thomas on a simple crossing pattern, I thought, that sent a message. Finally, when Percy Harvin returned the second half kickoff for a touchdown, I knew it was over. I am sure New England will realize above all else they cant let history repeat. For New England to win, they must have a great game tackling. Its funny how after all this time the basics of football still apply. Marshawn Lynch finished the season as the best running back in yards after contact, charging a three-yard gain forward for seven yards simply through his own effort and desire. New England must limit or eliminate his second effort success through the entire game. For New England on offence, they have to anticipate this will be the fastest defence they have seen. The only ways to offset speed on defence is to run straight ahead on dive plays, use misdirection and throw quick passes with precision. Thankfully for New England, all three of those are strengths of Tom Bradys unit. For Seattle, Russell Wilsons mobility is critical. The deceptively fast Green Bay Packers defence did an excellent job of maintaining pass rush lanes and discipline with pressure on the third-year pro. If Wilson has success outside the pocket, the game will change to reactive football against disciplined defensive football. Reactive and improvisational football is strength of the Seahawks. The coverage skills of Seattles defensive backs are well doccumented but in this game, they will need to use their line of scrimmage bump-and-run skills.dddddddddddd Brady can run an entire offense on the line of scrimmage and use 4 to 7 yard passes all the way down the field no matter the starting point. Seattle has to disrupt that flow by physically challenging all receivers early and often. Both teams are great in the fourth quarter, especially on defence in terms of points allowed. Seattle allowed only 67 fourth-quarter points this season, fourth best in the NFL. Amongst those teams to edge Seattle New England, who allowed 62, second best in the league. The single most important aspect of football is turnovers; creating them and stopping points off of them are equal in determining who wins in any game. During the regular season Seattle only allowed 38 points after turnovers, the fewest in the entire league. New England was the second best in the NFL when taking a possession off of a turnover, scoring 112 points over 16 regular season games. In the NFC Championship Game, the Green Bay Packers had five turnovers for a possible 35 points - they only scored six points on the Seahawk defence. Both quarterbacks are excellent but for Seattle to win, the Seahawks must make Brady move outside of the pocket. They cannot afford to let the two-time Super Bowl MVP stand tall and make his reads down field. Oppositely for New England to win, they cant allow Wilson to move and scramble for yards. When Wilson moves, he is at his best running and throwing, much better than when he is stationary. Now, the big question: who is going to win? Well, after being here for the week, I have no doubt the Patriots have a unique resolve and focus after all the controversy. With Seattle you sense they are extremely confident heading into the big game. Even though they have been here before, what you sense from the Seahawks is a team still hungry and just as enthusiastic as last year at this time. However, I dont believe the Seahawks are as good as last year without Percy Harvin and Wilson coming off a rough NFC Championship. The key to the game is not Marshawn Lynch for Seattle, but LeGarrette Blount for New England. Blount has a big day and Patriots cover the one-point spread to win Super Bowl XLIX.
