We have reached Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals between the Houston Rockets and the Utah Jazz with the series switching back to Salt Lake City.
In each of the first two games each team has won a game.
The Houston Rockets looked to be the dominant team after game one, and it looked like this series could be over in four games.
The defense stepped up in game one giving up only 96 points and that led to the really easy victory by the Jazz.
But in Game 2 the defense struggled especially in the first half, and that led to a lot of struggles by the offense also.
To win this game the Rockets need to play better defensively early on. If they struggle on the defensive side and let the Jazz crowd get into it, it could make for a long night of basketball.
If the defense steps up they should have no issue taking a 2-1 series lead in this series.
On the other side of this matchup is Utah Jazz who really had their backs up against the walls in Game 1, but in Game 2 they looked like a completely different team.
In the first game it really looked like they were lost without Ricky Rubio, but in Game 2 they figured out how to do life without him.
The offense really clicked in the first half, and that led to an easy victory.
Now the series switches back to Utah, and they need to use the home crowd to their advantage. They need to be the team to get out to the fast start and keep the crowd behind them.
