Underway in Game 5. Rockets were #1 first quarter team in regular season and have been great in this series as well. They are +29 in first quarters and have been averaging 33 points on 53% FG and 44% from 3.
Jazz 7 Rockets 5 with 6:41 left
Lot of good but unfortunately lots of mistakes as well. Missed lay-ups, dropped passes, bad lob pass to Gobert, out of control drive. Mistakes leading to Rockets points – Rockets 13 Jazz 11 with 3:57
Rockets lead it 21-16 – Rockets getting very different looks right now than they have had all series. 11 of 21 shots are three point shots and 20 of their 21 shots have been in restricted area and three point shots
Jazz have been playing great defense to stay in the game, offense beginning to heat up as Alec Burks is breaking the paint. However, any mistake Rockets seem to pounce – Rockets 41 Jazz 34 with 5:41
Off the bounce three is the next step for Donovan Mitchell. Is 5 for 23 in this series on those and below 30% for the playoffs. Tough shot and once he gets it he will be an unreal weapon offensively
James Harden is going to be really happy the first time he drives to the basket and doesn’t see #27
Did you watch @utahjazz Facebook live with @1041straight @kristenkenney today. Who was the player that had to make an impact. Alec Burks he has 12 points in 12 minutes
Halftime – Rockets 54 Jazz 46 – Rockets close with a flurry of three point shots. Jazz knocked on the door. Rockets shot composition is back to normal tonight
The contrast of seasons stories between Royce O’Neale and James Harden who are matched up is really something. Harden played this season offended he didn’t win MVP last year. O’Neale made the roster on the final day of training camp. O’Neale is really battling impressively
Donovan Mitchell has created 22 of the Jazz 25 points in the 3rd quarter scoring 15 and assisted on 7 and the Jazz have taken the lead 71-68 with 2:45.
This is really incredible by the Jazz. Raul Neto is guarding Chris Paul, Royce O’Neale is guarding James Harden and the Jazz have the lead with 2:45 left in the 3rd quarter
No Rookie has ever scored more points per game in 2nd half of games than Donovan Mitchell did this year.
Donovan Mitchell has an Allen Iverson quarter. 22 points in the quarter and creates 29 of the Jazz 32 points. Jazz lead it 78-75
Not having Ricky Rubio and Dante Exum has been disastrous for the Jazz tonight
PJ Tucker bailing the Rockets out – 6 of 7 and 4 of 5 from three has 16 points and the Rockets have regained the lead 81-80
Donovan Mitchell assisted to the bench after the play. Rockets have taken a 92-87 lead. Mitchell went into a catchers crouch immediately after Harden stole the ball. Then was assisted to the bench.
Chris Paul with 20 points in the 4th quarter – First time he has ever scored 20 points in a quarter playoffs or regular season. 7 of 9 from the field 4 of 4 from three on his way to 20 points.
Season comes to an end. Rockets 112 Jazz 102. jazz gave us more than we could have ever asked for this year. Thanks @utahjazz
