PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -Brandon Roy made a 30-foot jumper as time expired in overtime to give the Portland Trail Blazers a thrilling 101-99 win over the Houston Rockets on Thursday night.
LaMarcus Aldridge had 27 points and nine rebounds for the Blazers, who snapped a five-game losing streak to the Rockets in a game that featured three dramatic shots in the final 1.9 seconds.
Roy first hit a turnaround 21-footer that put the Blazers up 98-96 and sent a sold-out Rose Garden into a frenzy. But Yao Ming scored and drew a foul against Roy on the other end with 0.8 seconds left, then made the free throw to give Houston the lead.
Portland called timeout and the inbounds play went to Roy, who swished the winner to send a charge through the delirious crowd.
