Utah Jazz vs Houston Rockets (By: Raleone)
Houston made a statement in first two games, they aren't a team to mess with, and these odds look like a nice early Easter gift.
This is a pure mismatch. Houston is a 3pt shooting team while Utah likes to play inside and play on ball a lot and with giving ball to Gobert and Favors inside. Perimeter is killing Utah and it was a landslide for Houston in both games. They even tried to defend Hardens left hand by putting ONeale and Rubio but they failed miserably because it opened a path to the inside for Harden where he can give it easily to Capela or put it outside for shooters for even go for a floater himself. Thats only for Harden, but Utah is not great at defending shooters and they really had no luck in getting Houston in the 1st round. Houston is 1-2 team and them being a 4th for Utah to get is really a bad luck for them. Houston have too many options on the wings to pick while Utah have really just one or two shooters on the team, one being a near 40 year old Korver.
Total mismatch on all positions expect center, but this series is played on the perimeter. Utah is a clear candidate to be swept and these odds are a must-bet. Only an abyssmal shooting night can prevent Houston from not winning this one tonight.
