Rockets Vs. Blazers Recap: Goran Dragic Leads Houston In Fourth Straight Road Win

The Houston Rockets got out of The City of Roses with a 94-89 victory over the Portland Trailblazers on Monday night, with point guard Goran Dragic impressing once again with a 22-point performance.

Dragic told the media that he wasn't auditioning for a starting gig elsewhere for next season, once Kyle Lowry is back up to speed and 100 percent. But no question the point guard is being watched, tracked, and maybe even coveted by the end of the season.

Coincidentally, the Trailblazers need a point guard and they got a chance to see one up close and personal that they might want to pursue. Dragic knows what the deal is, too.

"It is going to be a crazy summer for me, but now I just want to be focused and play hard in every game," he said. "We are focused on the playoffs with Houston."

Chase Budinger came off the bench to score 15 points for the Rockets, who beat the Bulls, Lakers and Kings before traveling to Portland. Houston (32-25) has won six of its last eight games overall is currently in sixth place in the Western Conference.
