Adjust Comment Print

Utah is coming off a pair of double-digit losses at home in which the Rockets dominated from start to finish for the most part and now trail 3-1 in the series.

The Jazz are shooting 45.4 percent from the field as a team in the postseason. Later in the quarter after making a free throw, he again made consecutive baskets for the Jazz on a floater with his left hand and another drive up the right side. The Jazz is sputtering at the charity stripe, cashing in only 68.1 of their chances.

Houston ranks fifth in blocks allowed per game (4.4) while Utah ranks 11th (4.7). The Jazz committed 11 turnovers in the first half, leading to 17 points for Houston.

With the Rockets shooting miserably from the perimeter - Houston missed 28 of 38 3-point attempts - Paul was a terror in the midrange, finishing with a game-high 27 points plus 12 rebounds, six assists and two steals. James Harden scored 24 points on 8-of-22 shooting. With both teams now up 3-1 in their respective semi-conference series, that outcome reasonably seems assured. The Rockets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Conference Semifinals games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. Just as the Golden State Warriors did in the postseason previous year, the Rockets are forcing Gobert out of his comfort zone. They hit 79.2 percent at the charity stripe. "We've just got to go out there and keep fighting". Chris Paul led the Rockets with 27 points, 12 rebounds and six assists in the victory.

Capela was a force in Game 4, recording six blocks, 12 points, 15 rebounds and finishing with a plus-3 rating.

While Ricky Rubio was only listed as "questionable" a day prior to tip-off, preliminary tests before the game gave him a red light and he was ruled out of the Jazz rotation on the night. Five of Capela's swats were in the final three minutes of the game as the Rockets outscored the Jazz 50-42 in the paint.

Crowder started in place of Derrick Favors, once the team announced that he would be available as a game-time decision.
