The Rockets will try and avoid giving the Jazz the series lead.
Tonight the Houston Rockets will try and avoid giving the series lead to the Utah Jazz. After splitting the games in Houston the Rockets need to get no less than 1 win at home for security. Finishing off the Timberwolves in the first round was a piece of cake but the Jazz are putting up a much stronger fight. The weight is primarily on the shoulders of James Harden whose numbers have been impressive all season. In the playoffs Harden is averaging 31.1 points, 7.9 assists and 5.4 rebounds. The rebound leader is still center Chris Capela with an average of 13.4.
The Utah Jazz have been holding their own in the playoffs. They fared well against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round and were able to steal 1 game away from the Rockets in round 2. Keeping them in the competition is shooting guard Donovan Mitchell who has a scoring average of 26.1 points per game. Rudy Gobert leads rebounds with 11.3 and Ricky Rubio is making 7 assists. The Jazz is very capable of advancing past the Rockets and the next 2 games will be key.
