PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Alperen Sengun contributed 27 points off the bench, Jalen Green added 25 points and the Houston Rockets beat the Portland Trail Blazers 115-98 on Saturday to complete a game sweep in a row.

The Rockets are tied with Orlando at 20-55, the worst in the NBA. Houston prevailed on Friday 125-106.

Trendon Watford led the Blazers with 15 points and 10 rebounds before leaving late in the game with an apparent knee injury.

With 3:01 remaining, Watford went down on the court and grabbed his left knee after stepping on the foot of Houston’s Dennis Schröder.

Watford received help from his teammates to go to the locker room, unable to support his left leg. The Blazers did not immediately release a medical report.
