Quick Strikes | Portland with best goal differential in final 30 minutes of games in MLS

The Portland Timbers will look to extend their two-game winning streak when they travel to Texas to take on the Houston Dynamo Saturday night at BBVA Compass Stadium (6:00pm PT, KPDX). Here are five numbers to know for #HOUvPOR in the latest Quick Strikes.

+9In the last 30 minutes of matches this season, the Timbers have a +9 goal differential over the opponents, which is the best in the league in that timeframe. 

8 After his two-assist performance against the Philadelphia Union on Sunday, Darren Mattocks was named to the Wk 28 MLS Team of the Week. Mattocks is the eighth different Timbers player to be named to an MLS Team of the Week this season. 

12 Forward Fanendo Adi leads Portland with 15 goals in 2016 while midfielder Diego Valeri has tallied 12 this season. This season is the first in the club's MLS era that the team has two goalscorers with at least 12 goals. 

107 In his first season as Portland's No. 1 goalkeeper, Jake Gleeson's 107 saves are the most in MLS despite playing six fewer games than David Ousted, who is in second place in the category. 

2 The last time Portland and Houston squared off, the Timbers overcame a two-goal deficit to defeat the Dynamo 3-2 at Providence Park on June 26, 2016. That match marked the first time in the club's all-era history that the Timbers overcame a two-goal deficit to win in regulation.
