Action and Line Movement

What Sagarin Says

Sagarin indicates the line should be Houston -3.5 here.

Preview

Portland has beaten Houston in the last two meetings and three of the last four games.  It's easy to see why the oddsmakers are quick to react by moving the line down with some good early action on the Trailblazers.

The Rockets look to make it 3-0 in the "bubble" environment near Orlando when they oppose the Portland Trail Blazers at The Arena on Tuesday night.

Houston has averaged 136.5 points in the two victories, which includes a solid 120-116 win over the NBA-best Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday.

The Rockets look to keep their solid play going against a Portland club that needs to string together wins to have a chance at reaching the postseason.

Portland is 1-1 in the restart after Sunday's 128-124 loss to the Boston Celtics. The Trail Blazers are two games behind eighth-place Memphis -- current holder of the final playoff spot.
