HOUSTON (AP) — Damian Lillard scored 25 points and CJ McCollum added 24 as the Portland Trail Blazers withstood a late surge from the Houston Rockets to get a 117-107 win. The Trail Blazers led by double figures for most of the game, but the Rockets began cutting into the lead in the fourth.

Russell Westbrook had a triple-double with 31 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds.
