UTA VS HOU DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction 3rd May – Fantasy Team News
Houston Rockets vs Utah Jazz
NBA Post Season
Conference Semi-Finals, Rockets lead the series 1-0
UTA VS HOU DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Western Conference leaders Houston Rockets play host to Utah Jazz for the 2nd straight game as they aim to take a 2-0 lead in the conference semifinals.
Utah Jazz shocked the Basketball world after they dumped Oklahoma City Thunder out of the playoffs and many predicted a tough series for James Harden and Company on the back of that performance. However, Rockets made the mockery of Jazz in the first game, taking a massive 25 lead at the end of the 2nd quarter. This was quite a shocking display from the visitors considering Jazz is supposed to have the best defense anchored by Rudy Gobert.
However, Utah managed to save their faces as they won the next two quarters, but the damage of the first half was too big to evaporate and the visitors ended up losing 110-96.
But the 1st game in this series may not necessarily be an indicator of the way Utah Jazz play. They had only 36 hours of rest before they headed to Toyota Center for that high-octane game. It showed in their performance too as Jazz’s tired legs failed to match the intensity of Houston Rockets’ play, and the hosts toyed around with them whenever and wherever they wanted on the court.
Still, one can’t deny the fact that even at their full potential and with their batteries recharged, Utah would have found it hard to contain James Harden on a Basketball court. He is averaging well over 30 points both in the regular season as well as in the postseason. In the game 1, his powers were at the peak as he racked up an insane 41 points in the game, 20 of those came in the first half alone.
So even if Utah Jazz are fresh and full of energy, stopping Mr. Beard could be the toughest job they may have faced in this season so far.

UTA VS HOU DREAM11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Game Time Decision
Houston Rockets are almost at their full strength in this match. No big name player is missing this particular clash for Rockets. But RJ Hunter, Zhou Qi, and C Onuaku are all listed under game-time decisions for the home team
Utah Jazz’s offensive game lacked a cutting edge in the first game. The absence of Ricky Rubio is the reason why they were outscored so heavily in that game. The 27-year-old is their 3rd best player in the postseason, and the visitors will be without his services for yet another game as he continues to recover from a muscle injury he suffered in the last game against Oklahoma City Thunder.
Thabo Sefolosha is another player who will miss this match for Utah Jazz.

UTA VS HOU DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Houston Rockets lost only 7 games at home during the regular season and are unbeaten at Toyota Center in the postseason.
While Utah Jazz were never expected to travel this far and their performance against Oklahoma City Thunder was something few predicted. But they ended up winning that series and now are up against the hot favorites for the NBA title.
We think the power of Houston Rockets and James Harden is too much for Jazz and another win for the home team is our prediction.
