It’s the 5th game of the Western Conference semifnals when the Utah Jazz and the Houston Rockets face off at the Toyota Center.
The Rockets come into this game with a 3-1 series.
The biggest blow to the Utah Jazz right now is when Ricky Rubio went down with injury in their last game of the first round series against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Without Ricky Rubio the Jazz looked lost on the offensive side and although the defense did better in the second half the offense really let them down.
It has put the pressure on Donovan Mitchell to hold down the fort and play on the ball, something he isn’t as comfortable with.
To win this game someone needs to step up at the point guard position. If they want to win this game they also need to try and slow down James Harden and Chris Paul.
Both of those guys are going to score there is no question about that, but the defense needs to find a way to not let them touch them.
After Game 2 there was some panic for the Houston Rockets because of the way they played against the Utah Jazz but after game three and four it’s pretty clear there is no reason to worry.
They have taken advantage of the struggles of the Jazz offense will all the issues and that has led to a lot of easy success.
To win this game they need to take advantage of the struggles of the Jazz without Rubio. They can’t let them hang around in this game or they could be upset in this game.
