The Utah Jazz host the Houston Rockets tonight. Both of these teams need this win, the Jazz moreso. Houston has won the first two games of the four game season series, and last year Houston won three of four. It's going to be hard. The Rockets take and make a lot of threes, and their scrubs seem to go nuts against us. Houston plays at the 7th fastest pace in the league, have the 8th best offense b ORTG, and 5th best offense by PPG. We know Utah is all about defense. Both teams love pounding the glass, and getting to the line.

It should be a barn burner.
