UTA VS HOU DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction 5th May – Fantasy Team News
Utah Jazz vs Houston Rockets
NBA Post Season
Conference Semi-Finals, Series is tied at 1-1
UTA VS HOU DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Houston Rockets lost a home game for the first time in the NBA playoffs this season. Utah Jazz was the team who shocked them 108-116 at Toyota Center, and maybe, just maybe, you need to look at the series they played against Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round to get some glimpses about what may come.
Just like in this series, Jazz were the underdog against reigning MVP Russell Westbrook’s team which also boasted superstars Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in their ranks. They lost the first away game, won the next won and then all the other three home games to stun Oklahoma 4-2 in that series.
In the Semifinal also, Utah lost the first away game, won the next one and now head to Vivint Smart Home Arena for the two games home series.
Jazz won three quarters in the 2nd game. They had a 11 point lead heading into the 2nd half which was reduced to only three points by the end of the third quarter. But the visitors blitzed past the hosts in the end, winning the penultimate quarter 30-23.
Quin Snyder’s were better in every department than the lackadaisical Rockets. They shot at a whopping 51.8 percent from the field and 46.9 percent from beyond the arc. So if Jazz play the way they performed in the 2nd game, they have every reason to believe that they can script yet another shock and this time it shouldn’t be counted as an upset because Jazz would earn it this time.

UTA VS HOU DREAM11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Game Time Decision
Houston Rockets have no injuries concerns or suspensions for this particular match. No big name player is missing for them. However, RJ Hunter, Zhou Qi, and C Onuaku are all doubtful for the visitors in this match.
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 first round’s last game against Oklahoma City Thunder.
Thabo Sefolosha is another player who will miss this match for Utah Jazz, while Tony Bradley is a game-time decision.

UTA VS HOU DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Utah Jazz were wonderful in the last game. They shot better, defended better and gave James Harden little room to pull his strings. If they repeat that performance in the 3rd game, there’s no reason why Jazz can’t repeat the feat they achieved against Oklahoma City Thunder.
It looks insane, but we are backing Utah to win this game.
