Trail Blazers jockeying for playoff position as they host Rockets

The Portland Trail Blazers look to move closer toward clinching a top-six position in the Western Conference when they host the woeful Houston Rockets on Monday night.

Portland has won three straight games and seven of its last eight and looks to improve its playoff stock against a Houston team that has dropped five straight contests and 42 of its last 47.

The Trail Blazers (39-29) reside in sixth place in the West as they battle the fifth-place Dallas Mavericks and seventh-place Los Angeles Lakers. A top-six finish allows a team to avoid the NBA's new play-in tournament featuring seeds 7 through 10.
