The fifth-seeded Portland Trail Blazers came up with a 122-120 overtime win against the fourth-seeded Houston Rockets, and the Portland Police cracked a joke about the Blazers "stealing" the win.
LaMarcus Aldridge finished with 46 points and 18 rebounds, and Damian Lillard added 31 points, nine rebounds and five assists in the road win.
Chandler Parsons (24 points, six rebounds), Dwight Howard (27 points, 15 rebounds, four blocks) and James Harden (27 points, five rebounds, six assists) led the way for Houston.
These teams meet again for Game 2 on Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. ET.
