Normally, I hate these things...but this one is well done (by a Jazz homer):
- I think that Rudy plays significantly better this year.
- The Jazz punish the Rockets inside.
- Harden scores a lot, but the Jazz clamp down on everyone else.
- Donovan plays under control averages more assists than his season average.
- Jazz in 7.
The Utah Jazz and Houston Rockets have quite the NBA Playoff history. Most recently, just last year, the Rockets sent the Jazz home packing in just 5 games. Will this year go any different? With tipoff for Game 1 of this series scheduled for Sunday, let's take a few minutes to preview the history, the matchups, and what to look for before it gets started.
