Bryant Knox previews the Portland Trail Blazers Nov. 3 matchup against the Houston Rockets. The team is going to need more bench production against the Rockets on Friday than they had against OKC, and the starters must handle the pressures of the road better if they hope to escape the Toyota Center with a win. James Harden is averaging 41 points per game so far this season, and it will be Wesley Matthews’ job to stop him from going off against Saturday night.
