Yep. Houston was in control, up by 11 with 4 mins to play, when Portland chose that tactic. It totally shifted momentum and let Portland back in it. Good call by Portland to use it. I personally think its lame ass basketball BUT it worked and its part of the game. Wouldn't even be an option if Howard could make free throws better than 65%.
