The Jazz have been on a roll. It's incredible how well they have been playing. They're also 14-3 ATS in their last 17 games. With Westbrook and Harden probably not playing, it seems that this game should be a blowout more often than not. Also the Rockets are coming off a B2B playing in altitudes of Denver and coming into the altitudes of Utah (may not be too significant but still something that can be considered). Without Westbrook and Harden, this Rockets squad could arguably be one of the worse teams in the league. Sure we might see flashes of Eric Gordon but can this Houston offense really make things competitive with one of the best defenses in the league? I don't think so.
