The Trail Blazers hit 18 3's Saturday night in Portland, but it wasn't enough to stop the Rockets from an amazing comeback.

The Rockets were down 14 points at the start of the 4th quarter, and then they woke up.  Houston scored 40 points in the 4th while only giving up 19 to win their 9th straight game.

James Harden gave an incredible performance with 48 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists.

The Rockets also had 13 steals in the game, 4 of them coming from Ariza who put up 13 points.

Chris Paul went 8 of 14, with 26 points, 7 assists, and 3 rebounds.  

After the game, Harden told AT&T SportsNet, "We needed some adversity, and we just continued to fight, and had a big 4th quarter run."

The Rockets will be back home for their next seven games, starting with New Orleans on Monday night.
