10-Unit Play #507 Take Utah over Houston (8 p.m. EST, Wednesday May 2)
After New Orleans got their butts handed to them in Game 1 against Golden State we thought they would bounce back and play a much more competitive game in Game 2, and that’s just what happened. We expect the same thing to happen here in Game 2 in Houston. The Jazz got behind big in the first half as they trailed by 20+ points in Game 1 but they played much better in the second half and they made the game respectable at the end. We think they will carry that positive momentum over here to Game 2. The Jazz are a very good team and they play excellent defense and great fundamental team basketball. We just don’t see them getting blown out in two straight games, and pride should kick in for this team after playing so poorly in the first half in Game 1. The Rockets are 12-18 ATS when laying double digits this season so they haven’t flourished in the role of the big favorite. We think this game will be much closer and the Jazz are good enough to challenge for the win.
