Trail Blazers-Rockets Preview

HOUSTON (AP) James Harden missed 20 shots, including two in the final seconds of Houston's Game 1 loss to Portland in overtime.

Now the key word for the Houston star entering Game 2 on Wednesday night is better; he must play better, and the Rockets must be better when it comes to their ball movement.

"I wasn't really driving and attacking and being aggressive like I needed to be," he said. "I think when I get into the attack mode everything else opens up, the assists come and the easy layups come and whatnot. So I've got to be more aggressive."
