Underway in Salt Lake for Game 3 – The Rockets hit two transition threes and Quin Snyder calls timeout – Rockets 8-3
The Rockets have blasted off. They came with juice tonight. Rockets lead it 30-12. Rockets have hit on 13 of 18 shots. 3 of 6 from three.
End of 1st quarter – Rockets 39 Jazz 22 – Jazz trailed by 20. Jazz trailed by 20 times this year and never won.
Rockets lead by 20 an incredible 34 times this season and were 33-1.
Rockets are playing incredibly hard. They got the message from Game 2. D’Antoni is using quick short stints at altitude. Clint Capela is having a whale of a game. Two incredible blocks and no one is beating him 1 on 1 from the perimeter.
Jazz are 1 for 6 at the basket in the 2nd quarter. At least they are trying to get to the basket. Jazz had 4 attempts in the restricted area in 1st quarter.
Rockets defense is #2 in NBA after a make
They are #11 after a miss
They are #16 after a turnover
Jazz finally getting to play off misses and then getting out in transition to take advantage of the Rockets one weakness – Transition defense.
Rockets 49 Jazz 34 9-0 run
Halftime – Rockets 70 Jazz 40
Rockets were just awesome. Sent a message across the NBA they were the best team all year and are tonight
Rockets have 10 non restricted area 2 point field goals. Went out of their normal offense and took the mid range two while in transition getting the three point shots. Still have been able to get 46% of shots as three point shots.
Rockets first half was near perfect basketball on both sides. Crazy impressive
Rockets are 10 of 11 on non-restricted area twos. They won’t lose ever if they do that.
Crowder in at 9:37. Favors and Gobert are -15 tonight outscored 23-8.
Two storylines for Jazz moving to Game 4 – how much can they play Favors and Gobert and how can they get Donovan Mitchell some good looks while he is playing the point guard. He is 16 of 54 in the series
End of 3rd quarter – Houston 93 Jazz 65.
What if I told you…… James Harden and Chris Paul were a combined 12 of 32 and 2 of 14 from 3 …… what do you think the score would be ….. well it’s Rockets 98 and Jazz 74.

JAZZ GAME REWIND: 2nd Half propels Toronto past the youthful Jazz
The Jazz fell short in the second half as the Toronto defense shut the new-look Jazz down in route to cruising to an 114 – 82 Raptors victory. Lauri Markkanen shined for the Jazz with 20 points and 5 rebounds but the Raptors length and athleticism proved to be too much for the Jazz riding a dominant 3rd quarter to pull away from the Jazz who played well in the first half, only trailing by one.
