The Portland Trail Blazers beat the Houston Rockets 76-75 to end an 11 game losing streak. Sebastian Telfair hit a game winning jumper and the Rockets couldn't answer back. Sebastian Telfair ended with 13 points and 5 dimes in 28 minutes off the bench. Telfair starting to learn the NBA and he showed he can take and make the big shots. Zach Randolph got 17 points and 8 boards in 44 minutes. Randolph and all the rest of the team are very young and it will take long for them to be good but once they are they will be fantastic. Juan Dixon got 13 points and 1 assist in 36 minutes. Dixon has to be like Sebastian and pass more and then look for your shot. Voshon Lenard got 14 points and 3 steals in 24 minutes. Lenard and 2 other players like Theo Ratliff are the only experienced players they and they have to teach the guys the ropes. Rafer Alston got 5 points and 10 assits in 43 minutes. For someone who complains a lot Alston player solid. Keith Bogans got 20 points and 5 boards in 39 minutes. Bogans was a good pickup from the Bobcats and he can shot jumpers nicely. Yao Ming got 13 points and 7 boards in 31 minutes. Ming didn't dominate like he's been since the All Star break and that might be another reason why they lost.
