James Harden stepped on the court with his shoes laced up really tight and managed to come away with his fourth triple-double of the season. He put the ball in the cotton for 23 points, shooting 6 of 18 from the field and made all 8 of his shots while everyone was watching.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
The only thing the Trail Blazers have struggled with more then playing defense lately is covering the spread. They are just 2-9 in their previous 11 and 1-6 in their last seven at home.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Rockets -1.5
I am going with Houston -1.5. They have been playing a little tighter defense then Portland has lately and I think James Harden will end up leaving Portland looking like a stud.
