Utah Jazz vs. Houston Rockets, 4/14/19 NBA Predictions & Odds

Rockets James Harden Chris Paul Spurs upset Jokic, No. 2 Nuggets
Sidney Guerrero | 15 April, 2019, 09:42

Gary Harris led the Nuggets with 20 points and Murray scored 17.

Thing is, Houston apparently has a solid jaw - and is more than capable of throwing big haymakers of its own.

The Timberwolves missed two straight shots and after Millsap tipped Barton's missed 3-pointer to Murray, he calmly drained one from long range to put Denver ahead 96-95.

We learned how some of these individual matchups will play out as the series goes along, but it's important to avoid ovrreacting to what we saw in Game One.

It says something about Murray's maturation and determination for him to be getting shots up immediately following a loss.

"If you give a team that's that good multiple possessions ..." he added, trailing off, not needing to state the obvious conclusion.

Houston outscored Utah 62-42 in the paint but even with the big win, Harden is careful not to let it spill over into Game 2 based on their previous experience last season.

Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and Ricky Rubio all strolled into the interview room together to answer postgame questions at the Toyota Center. Stop the penetration? Or hang back and play the lob?

Luckily they have the next two games at home to get the matchup they want but a Kadri's status could impact that. Demott's one-timer hit two players - the second being Kadri, who redirected it to the far side of the net.

The Rockets ended the regular season on Tuesday and have had five days to prepare for the Jazz.

Utah, on the other hand, converted only 39% from the field, and made just 7 of 27 from deep (25.9%).

"Their physicality defensively disrupted us", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said.

The Nuggets, making their first playoff appearance in six years, trailed most of the night. When they do collapse, do a better job of finding each other.

"We didn't let Jokic play as he wanted and they didn't let LaMarcus play as much as he wanted", Popovich said.

But the former Kentucky standout went cold in Denver's Game 1 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night, scoring just 17 points on 8 of 24 shooting from the field while failing to make a single three-pointer.

Houston was up by 15 in the fourth quarter before Harden, who had eight rebounds, scored six points in a 9-2 run that stretched the lead to 108-86 with four minutes left and both teams cleared their benches about a minute after that.

Popovich said it was a wash because Aldridge, who was 6-for-19 for 15 points, really didn't get going, either. "There were a lot of things we needed to do better". Chris Paul added 14 points with seven assists. BIG NUMBER 15 • Houston's big advantage, not surprisingly, came beyond the 3-point arc, where the Rockets drained 15 triples to Utah's seven.
