VENUE: Toyota Center
The Toyota Center has been a house of horrors for the Portland Trail Blazers since it opened for the 2003-04 season.
The Trail Blazers' only win there in 14 tries came when the Houston Rockets didn't have Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming, and that will be the case Saturday night.
Portland will try to end a seven-game losing streak at Houston and spoil the Rockets' home opener as the teams meet for the second time in five days.
Houston (1-1) eliminated Portland (1-1) in six games in the first round of the playoffs last season, wrapping up the series with a 92-76 home victory. The Trail Blazers lost all five games at the Toyota Center last season.
Portland's lone victory in the arena was an 85-78 win April 6, 2007, with Yao and McGrady both sitting out.
