Houston Rockets Vs. Utah Jazz Predictions
The Rockets will visit the Vivint Smart Home Arena looking to bounce back from a road loss to Minnesota. Houston can’t catch a break this season. Whenever we think they were putting together a winning run, it all falls apart in the next game. Their wins against the San Antonio Spurs and the Chicago Bulls were a perfect boost to make a jump to the next level. Of course, it all goes to the thrash as they lose to the Timberwolves by 12 in Minnesota in the next game. I’m willing to say Houston can still figure out.
We are all expecting that winning run where they reminded us why they had the Golden State Warriors within one game of elimination last season. That run still hasn’t come as they have lost five of their previous seven games. They are too inconsistent on both sides of the floor. Utah has had the same struggles at Houston. Their ceiling wasn’t that high at the start of the season, but many believed the Jazz could make a lot of noise this year.
The Jazz gets to this matchup against the Rockets with one night of rest after playing the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday Night. Before the game against the Spurs, the Jazz had a successful mini-run of three wins in their last five games. While that win-loss ratio is not impressive in the eyes of many, is a step in the right direction for the Jazz. Any wins Houston and Utah can put together is a good thing. Both teams are overthinking themselves with their current situation. These two teams met in October as the Jazz won by 11 in Houston. Utah covered the spread as a 1-point underdog on the road.
The confidence of both squads has been shaky since then, but I’m willing to say I trust the Jazz so much more right now. The Rockets’ problems are not easy to fix. They lack people with defensive skills, and even their coach has never been a defensive minded guy. Seeing Mike D’Antoni asking his guys to make defensive adjustments it’s watching a fish out of the water. He’s outside his natural element. Give me the home team to win this game by six points. This season, Houston hasn’t proven they can beat teams with their same level.
