Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets were really struggling during their five-game losing streak, but they will be feeling much better after blowing past the in-form Magic with a 118-106 home win on Tuesday. Fred VanVleet led the team with 37 points, eight rebounds and six assists, Jabari Smith Jr added 23 points with seven rebounds and five assists while Dillon Brooks chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Rockets shot 52 percent from the field and 15 of 35 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates with 36 points in the first quarter to take the early lead, before they poured on another 34 points in the third quarter to push the margin out to 19 points. The Rockets will meet the Trail Blazers after this one.

Utah Jazz

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have been ice-cold for a while now as they’ve won just two games since the start of March and they will be hoping for a better performance after getting routed by the Nuggets in a 111-95 loss on Tuesday. Talen Horton-Tucker led the team with 24 points off the bench, Omer Yurtseven added 20 points with 11 rebounds on nine of 14 shooting while Luka Samanic chipped in with 15 points, 10 rebounds and three assists. As a team, the Jazz shot just 39 percent from the field and 10 of 31 from the 3-point line as they slowly worked their way back from an early 19-point deficit, only to get blown out in the fourth quarter where they managed just 15 points.

Utah Jazz Team Facts

  • The Jazz have lost each of their last 13 games.
  • The underdogs have covered the spread in 10 of the last 11 games between the Rockets and Jazz at Delta Center.
  • Each of the Jazz’s last eight home games on the first leg of a back-to-back have gone OVER the total points line.

Houston Rockets Team Facts

  • The Rockets have won each of their last nine night games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The underdogs have covered the spread in 10 of the Rockets’ last 11 games at Delta Center.
  • Each of the Rockets’ last six games have gone OVER the total points line.

Rockets vs Jazz prediction

The Rockets are still missing Alperen Sengun and Jae’Sean Tate, while the Jazz are still missing John Collins, Jordan Clarkson and Lauri Markkanen. The Rockets were looking terrible during their slump, but they bounce back in fine fashion with a big win over the Magic. The Rockets are obvious favorites against a Jazz team, who have been the worst in the league over the last month. The line is a bit hefty, but the Rockets need this win, and they shouldn’t get too much resistance from the ice-cold Jazz.
