Predict the Score: Utah Jazz vs Houston Rockets

The Jazz won a game on the road now let’s see what they do in round 2 against the Houston Rockets.  Last time against the Rockets the Jazz had a commanding 16 point lead at halftime that they squandered in minutes in the second half to ultimately lose by double digits at the ESA.  This time the Rockets come in as a 7.5 favorite riding a 5 game win streak.  They had an impressive win against the Spurs and have been playing most of their games without James Harden.

The Jazz on the other hand looked good in their first road win against the Suns after blowing the game in Utah.  Trey was clutch hitting two threes in the last 3 minutes and cementing the win.  For the Jazz to play well against the Rockets they will need the same type of performance as they had against the Suns.  Expect this to be a high scoring game as the Jazz have been shooting much better since the return of Trey Burke and Jeremy Evans.

My Prediction: Jazz 102 Rockets 107
