Portland Timbers at Houston Dynamo: How to watch, preview, match chat [5:30]

How the Timbers bounce back from their first dropped points in a month remains to be seen, but today’s match in Houston should be a stiff test for this reconstituted Timbers side and one that can serve as a measure of their ability to stand up to the stronger teams in the Western Conference.

Seven of Houston’s nine games have been decided by a goal or less, and the two others were a 4-1 win over the still winless Colorado Rapids and a 2-0 victory over Caleb Porter ’s struggling Columbus Crew SC .
