Dwight Howard scored 25 points with a game-high 14 rebounds along with two assists, two steals, and two blocks but it was not enough as the Rockets fell in overtime to the Blazers.
Howard has been everything the Rockets could have asked for this postseason, averaging 27.0 points and 14 .3 rebounds per game on 53.5 percent shooting from the field. The Rockets will need another strong effort from Howard in Game 5, considering they are now just one game away from being eliminated from contention. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
