In the NBA playoffs, we will see Utah Jazz at Houston Rockets.
Talent wise- the Rockets and the Jazz are probably two of the 5 best teams in the NBA at the moment. The Jazz rely on their solid defense to bring them victories. They are averaging 111.7 points per game on 46.8 percent shooting from the floor and allowing 106.5 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is once again the team’s leading scorer with 23.8 points per game and 4.2 assists while Rudy Gobert adds 15.9 points and 12.9 rebounds.
The Houston Rockets started the season with Carmelo Anthony on their roster and this didn’t turn out to be a good thing. They have turned things around since then and managed to get to the 4th seed. The team is averaging 113.9 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 109.1 points on 46.6 percent shooting. James Harden has MVP numbers once again with 36.1 points and 7.5 assists per game. Clint Capela is the leading force of the frontcourt with 16.6 points and 12.7 rebounds.
This is not a good matchup for Utah who doesn’t have the offensive abilities to see of Houston. Capela will do just enough to prevent the Jazz from staying close in the game.
