NBA Match Preview -- Houston Rockets vs Utah Jazz

NBA Match Preview -- Houston Rockets vs Utah Jazz
Mike Roblnson


The Toyota Center will host the NBA game between the Utah Jazz and the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.

Houston Rockets
The Rockets are in a 10-game losing streak and have the worst overall record in the Western Conference. Last night, Houston were outscored by 15 points in the third quarter in the 113-100 home loss to Los Angeles with the shooting percentage only 40%. Jalen Green led Houston with 20 points in 9-for-21 and cut four rebounds.

Utah Jazz
The Jazz (38-22) have won eight of the past ten games, 3.5 games behind Memphis and rank third in the West. On Sunday, Utah were able to beat Phoenix 118-114 away in the final stage.
Donovan Mitchell led five Utah players to the doubles with 26 points and 5 assists. Rudy Gobert added 16 points, 14 rebounds and 3 blocks to the Jazz.

I think the Jazz will end up with a series of wins. The Rockets have always been the coldest team in the league. They are playing their second back-to-back game, so I like the Jazz rioting in this game.

Tips: Utah Jazz -12.5
