Rockets Score More Points, Lead 80% of Time, and LOSE SERIES!

Most important series stat: Portland 4, Houston 2

Total points scored: Houston 672, Portland 670

Most curious series stat = Time leading the game: Houston 3:24:29, Portland 54:17.

That's right. Houston led 79% of the time that either team had a lead. On a per game average, Houston led 34 minutes, while Portland led 9 minutes. But Portland led the most important minute, or should I say second, or should I say 0.9 second: the END!

Looking at the table below, you can see that Houston led the majority of the time in all six games. In their 2 wins, Houston led 84% and 90% of the time. While in Portland's 4 wins, they led 16%, 36%, 15%, and 34% of the time. In Portland's most dominating performance -- game 2, which they won by 7 points -- they only led 36% of the time.

It is really remarkable that Portland prevailed in this series. It really points out how tenacious and clutch the Blazers really are.
