The Utah Jazz is a very dangerous playoff team and participates in this contest playing some of the best basketball teams of any team in the league. The problem is that the Houston Rockets are legitimate title contenders and should end this series as quickly as possible considering that the Golden State Warriors will likely make the Los Angeles Clippers work lightly.
The Rockets cannot afford to have a long series with the Jazz. The Rockets have also won their last five games by an average of 23.2 points and have smoked the Jazz in the last meeting by 27 points. I will put the chalk reasonable.
