HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Rockets added Dwight Howard with designs on making a deep run into the playoffs this year.

Instead, a heartbreaking loss on a last-second 3-pointer ended their season in the first round - just as it did a year ago.

Damian Lillard made a 3-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Trail Blazers to a win on Friday night to take the series 4-2.

Howard says: "It's a tough loss, but it's something we've got to learn from."

This year's early exit comes after the Rockets lost to the Thunder in the first round in 2013 in their first playoff appearance since 2009.
