PORTLAND, Ore. -- The team with the NBA\'s best record -- the Houston Rockets -- comes calling to Moda Center Tuesday night, and the Portland Trail Blazers mean no disrespect. They\'re taking nothing for granted.

But the Trail Blazers are, in a phrase popularized in an earlier era of Blazer basketball, "Red Hot \'n Rollin\'." Portland (43-26) is riding the wave of a 13-game win streak. The Blazers haven\'t been on such a tear since December 2007, when Nate McMillan was head coach and second-year pros Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge were the team leaders.

"Really, it\'s all about us," forward Ed Davis said. "If we play well, we\'re going to win. We\'re not really worried about the opponents right now."
