Injury-Plagued Blazers Come Up Short Against Rockets, 124-117

Their impressive 4-1 road trip on the East Coast is now overshadowed by a disappointing 0-4 home stand. Outside of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum—and even the latter has had shaky outings —there isn’t enough to depend on night in and night out. Jusuf Nurkic has been hard to pin down. Maurice Harkless has fallen off. Evan Turner is still the same player. Al-Farouq Aminu has dealt with...
