The Houston Rockets will play the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 6 of their NBA 2014 Playoffs series on Friday night with the Rockets on the brink of elimination. Houston cannot afford any more mistakes and it is another win or go home game for the Rockets. The game will start at 10.30 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the ESPN network or online through free live stream (details below).
The Rockets fell to 1-3 in this series, but a Game 5 win by 108-98 gives them some degree of hope that they are still in this. They managed to pull things back to 2-3 and if they can win tonight to pull level then they would be in with a great chance at completing an amazing comeback in Game 7.
A win tonight would give the Rockets all the momentum heading into a winner takes all Game 7, but they will have to take down the Trail Blazers in the Moda Center at the Rose Quarter in Portland, Oregon tonight if they are to even think about a Game 7.
A reward for victory tonight would be to bring the series back to Houston for the decisive game, and thousands of Rockets fans will act as the extra player in the crunch match up.
In the Game 5 win, Dwight Howard recorded 22 points with 9-of-15 shooting and 14 rebounds, while Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons added 21 and 20 points, respectively.
The Rockets will be hoping that trio will once again be on fire, and if they can replicate their form tonight then Houston will be in with a great chance at leveling the series.
