Western Conf First Round: Houston Rockets at Portland Trail Blazers
Houston was facing elimination in Game 5, and got huge games from Howard and Lin to stay alive for at least one more game. They are going to need another nearly flawless performance in Game 6, because they are still in the same win-or-go-home situation they were before. Portland will have the luxury of playing at home, and the knowledge that they still have another game, so the pressure will be much less, which could allow them to play much looser, and more comfortably.
