The Portland Trail Blazers will put on some classic Taylor Swift and try to shake off a tough loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder last night as they face the Houston Rockets in an early road game this evening. The Rockets are young, but a year farther into their rebuild than the Trail Blazers are. This game is a good measuring stick, maybe a chance for redemption.
