Rockets on a roll, set to play Blazers in third game at bubble

The Rockets came to the bubble ready to play.

After a thrilling OT win over the Mavericks, the Rockets topped themselves by beating the team with the best record in the league, a 120-116 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Even better? James Harden shut down Giannis Antetokounmpo in the clutch (Video), which was especially embarrassing for last year's MVP considering how he insulted Harden's defense after the All-Star Game and implied he was selfish.

While Harden dominated in the Mavericks game, it was Russell Westbrook who thrived against Milwaukee, scoring 31 to lead the way (Video).

The Rockets hope to keep the roll going tonight against the Blazers, who are in a fight to try to get the 8th seed. An old friend -- Carmelo Anthony in a slimmed-down body -- will be facing off against the Rockets and Russ will continue his rivalry with Damian Lillard.
