Houston, TX (Cable Muse Network) -- April 22, 2009. Houston is gearing for a win! Tuesday night The Toyota Center was abuzz as the Center was opened for a free Rockets Watch Party. Local station KHOU (Local CH11) was a major promoter of the event. Last night’s game was the second game of a best of seven playoff series with the Portland Trailblazers played in Portland, Oregon.  The Rockets won the first game in Portland by a hefty margin; but fell on Tuesday night to even the series one and one.

The Rockets Power Dancers, as well as their mascot bear “Clutch” full 6’ 8” in height, was on hand to keep the Houston fans excited about the Rockets and keep the playoff hopes alive.  Approximately 3,000 people packed Toyota Center to watch Tuesday night’s game on the jumbo screens, as part of the Rockets’ Game 2 viewing party.

Concern overcame the crowd as Dikembe Mutombo went down with a knee injury in the first half of play. Reports are that this was possibly his last game in the NBA.

In the first half, Portland outscored Houston in the paint, 22-10 and eventually went on to win the game 107 – 103. The next game in the series is Thursday night in Houston at the Toyota Center.
