After one of the most convincing and demolition of Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets face another stern test of character when they meet Utah Jazz at home.

Both team are in top of their form, with Utah Jazz seemingly found their strides again after losing Jerry Sloan, their head coach, and Deron Williams, their franchise player. They're currently on a winning streak of 2, and half game ahead of Houston Rockets.

As for the Rockets, they had been playing pretty well, winning 10 out of 13 after the All Stars Break, and they're now making a strong push for the playoffs.


A win in Toyota Centre will see the Houston Rockets surpass Utah Jazz to #9, and 1 1/2 game behind #8 Memphis Grizzlies.

So this is a MUST WIN for Houston Rockets.


In order to win this game, the Rockets must continue what they've done best in the past 10 ~ 3 surge, i.e. play the tough and no-nonsense defense like they did recently; in their current winning streak of 3, they had only allowed 82.7 points by their opponents, which was 21.0 points fewer than their season average.

SO GO GO GO ROCKETS !!! GO FOR THE WIN AND MOVE UP TO #9 !!!

HOU 25.0 Defensive Rebound by Kyle Lowry (6 Reb)
UTA 29.0 Al Jefferson missed Jump Shot
HOU 35.0 Kyle Lowry made 3-pt. Jump Shot
HOU 43.0 Defensive Rebound by Kyle Lowry
UTA 45.0 Paul Millsap missed Jump Shot

A Goran Dragic's 3-pointer at 4:24 stretched Rockets' lead to 12 points; 49 ~ 37.

But then Rockets offense suddenly stagnated and the Utah Jazz turned on a 10 ~ 3 run to reduce the deficit to only 5 points.


But Kyle Lowry timely 3-pointer sort of stopped the bleeding.

55 ~ 47 8-point lead by the Rockets. End of first half.

67 ~ 67 Tied.
