Patrick Beverley will have an MRI on Monday after spraining his right knee during Sunday's game.
Beverley tore his right meniscus on March 27 but he was able to avoid surgery and return to action just two weeks later, and there is reportedly "a great deal of fear" that he's seriously aggravated his injury. He's questionable to play on Wednesday and if he can't suit up the Rockets will shift Jeremy Lin into the starting lineup.
LaMarcus Aldridge set a Blazers franchise record with 46 points on Sunday, adding 18 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in a thrilling OT road victory in Game 1.
Aldridge averaged 26.5 points and 15.5 rebounds vs. the Rockets this season and he clearly has their number, as neither Terrence Jones nor Dwight Howard could do much to check him defensively. He made 17-of-30 FGs and 10-of-13 FTs and even sank both of his 3-point attempts, despite having made just three during the entire regular season. The Rockets' official Twitter account summed things up late in the game, saying, "We finally stopped LaMarcus Aldridge. He fouled out."
Mo Williams scored three points on 1-of-6 shooting in Sunday's comeback, as the Blazers won in OT despite their bench combining for seven points on 14.3 percent shooting.
Portland's bench averaged a league-low 24.7 points per game during the regular season, so the lack of production is nothing new, but to come back in the series they'll need to get some production from Williams, Thomas Robinson, Dorell Wright and Joel Freeland.
