What to know about the Rockets' Game 5 in 60 seconds

On Monday afternoon, the Utah Jazz got some bad news that they will be shorthanded once again without the services of point guards Ricky Rubio and Dante Exum for Tuesday night's Game 5 against the Houston Rockets due to hamstring strains. However, it was Capela who had two blocks on star rookie guard Donavon Mitchell and one on Gobert with less than five minutes to go in Game 4 to keep the Jazz in check and prevent them from making a comeback.

So even after the Houston Rockets took a 3-1 series lead on the Utah Jazz, he's not ready to think about the Western Conference finals yet. "But in order to beat them you have to be able to convert those opportunities, and we just didn't". "The last 15, 16 minutes of this game we saw how connected we could be moving the ball, playing well".

The Rockets, with their switching defense and individual defenders, harassed the Jazz on the perimeter knowing full well that center Clint Capela would protect the rim if dribble penetration was surrendered.

A big reason Harden consistently puts up big numbers: his ability to get to the free throw line. There's no moral victories. As soon as play was blown dead, he immediately ran to the locker room before he could be taken out of the game.

"So I talked to both of them about how I thought they could attack and create better shots, and we just did a much better job executing offensively tonight as a group".

"I've been here before, 3-1", Paul said on TNT immediately following the win. The goal is to win a championship, of course, but doing so would most likely require them to first confront the defending champion Golden State Warriors in the postseason. Rubio provides a veteran presence when he's on the floor and while he may play in Game 5, it might be too little, too late.

While Utah has slowed Houston's prolific three point shooting in the last three games of the series, the fact remains that the Jazz is in a 3-1 hole.

But somehow, the Clippers suffered one of the biggest collapses in National Basketball Association history by losing three straight games by double digits to be eliminated 4-3.

Everyone knows that the Rockets are an outstanding offensive team, but they won game 4 with a terrific defensive effort. He deflected the question with a joke before finally mumbling: 'don't relax, ' before James Harden stepped in to save his teammate from the uncomfortable moment.

"Without a doubt - you gotta do this", D'Antoni said afterward. Crowder finished 8 of 13 on 3s at Toyota Center but was just 2 of 10 at home from deep and missed 15 of 17 shots overall. (But) there's all different ways to win. "We're not strictly a jump-shooting team", D'Antoni said. "We didn't do anything but get home court advantage back".

The Jazz, the most inspirational story of this National Basketball Association season, haven't played great this series.

"The bigger the game the better Draymond plays", coach Steve Kerr said, "the more intense he is, the more focus he has". The Rockets will blow out the Jazz, and set up a matchup with the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.
