Houston Rockets vs Utah Jazz

NBA Post Season

Conference Semi-Finals, Rockets lead the series 3-1

 

UTA VS HOU DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Exactly a year ago, Houston Rockets faced San Antonio Spurs in the semifinal of Western Conference, and despite winning the first game, they lost the series 4-2. That was not a shocking result and Spurs were expected to beat them even though James Harden was playing like a champ.

Now fast forward a year, Houston Rockets are no longer the same team, and James Harden is playing like a man on a personal mission. They swept aside Minnesota Timberwolves 4-1 in the last round and now are on the cusp of making it into the final of the Western conference provided they beat Utah Jazz in this game.

Rockets played the first two games at home and lost the 2nd game108-116, giving Utah a significant advantage ahead of the next two games. But Houston won the next two game on the road with Harden scoring 49 points in those two matches. Now Houston are at home in this game and we are expecting them to wrap up this series in fron of their own fans.

Rockets still need to work in one department ahead of their possible Western Conference semifinal showdown against Golden State Warriors. It’s their shooting from beyond the arc which should be a cause for concern for their head coach Mike D’Antoni. In the game-4, Rockets shot only 10-of-38 from 3, (at 26.3 percent), and it was Chris Paul’s efficiency which was a bright spark for Rockets. The 33-year-old Point Guard shot 12-of-23 shooting in Houston’s 100-87 Game 4 win to take a 3-1 series lead.

UTA VS HOU DREAM11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Game Time Decision

Houston Rockets:

Houston Rockets are at full strength in this match. Big name players like James Harden, Chris Paul, Clint Capela and Eric Gordon all are fit and healthy. They all will start in this game.

However there are some injury issues as RJ Hunter, Zhou Qi and C Onuaku are all doubtful for the visitors in this match. But they are all fringe players and shouldn’t affect their strategy and approach in this game.

Utah Jazz:

Ricky Rubio was upgraded to doubtful ahead of the 4th game, but he didn’t play in that game. He is still suffering from a muscle injury and is not expected to feature in this game. So don’t include him in your UTA vs HOU Dream11 NBA Fantasy team.

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:

After beating Houston Rockets in the 2nd game and in their own backyard, Utah Jazz had the momentum to stun James Harden and company.

But Houston Rockets are a different beast this season and it showed in the next two games as they won two on the road and now have the series in their grasp.

We are backing them to do just that and wrap up the series in the 5th game at Toyota Center.
