Alright hoop-heads, buckle up for some serious roundball rumble tonight. Our boys from Salt Lake City, the Utah Jazz, are jazzing up their sneakers to face the Houston Rockets at the Toyota Center. Now, the Jazz have been playing a bit like they’ve got a saxophone stuck in their net lately, with a record of 29W-41L, and they’re a whopping 20.5 games back in the Western conference. Yikes! Meanwhile, the Rockets, sitting at a slightly less embarrassing 34W-35L, are only 8.5 games back. The betting gurus have the over/under at a whopping 227.0, with the Jazz as the underdogs at 10.5, and the Rockets favored at -10.5. The Rockets are still hot off their 127-117 victory over the Bulls, while the Jazz are probably still sulking over that 97-113 loss to the Mavericks. Tipoff is at 08:00PM EST, so make sure you’re ready for the show. And remember, in this game of Jazz vs Rockets, it’s not about who hits the high notes, it’s about who’s ready for the launch!
