Led by Anfernee Simons (game-high 32 points, 52.4% FG) and perennial All-Star guard Damian Lillard (25 points, 10 assists), the visiting Portland Trail Blazers easily had enough to hold off the Houston Rockets on Saturday at Toyota Center, 107-95 (box score).

The Rockets made just 3-of-29 from 3-point range (10.3%) as a team, with starting guards Jalen Green (15 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists) and Kevin Porter Jr. (13 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists) each going 0-of-6 from long range. Green entered shooting just 24.7% on 3-pointers over his previous 14 games, and that trend picked up more steam in an uncompetitive home loss to Portland (17-13).

By contrast, over his first 14 games of the 2022-23 NBA season, Green had shot 37.5% on 3-pointers for the Rockets.

Houston’s lone bright spots came off the bench in young forwards KJ Martin (13 points, 5 rebounds) and Tari Eason (13 points, 6 rebounds), who combined to make 12-of-23 shots (52.2%).

Scroll on for highlights, analysis and postgame interview reaction following Saturday’s game. Houston (9-20) plays the fifth game of its longest homestand of the season (seven games in total) on Monday night versus San Antonio, with tipoff set for 7 p.m. Central.
