NBA Game 5, 2018
Jazz vs. Rockets Live
Date : Tuesday, May 8, 2018
Start Time: 8:00p ET
The Jazz stole home-court advantage with an impressive performance in Game 2, but the Rockets took it right back with a dominant performance of their own in Game 3. There was really never any hope for the Jazz in this one, as the Rockets extended their lead to double-digits after just a few minutes, and led by 30 at halftime. James Harden went for 25 points and 12 assists, Eric Gordon matched him with 25 points off the bench, and the Rockets hit 11 3-pointers as a team.
As for the Jazz, they look cooked. That suffocating Rockets defense reduced them to just 38.6 percent shooting from the field and a mere 24 percent from downtown. Rookie Donovan Mitchell had another rough shooting night as he finished with 25 points on 8-of-24 from the field. Jae Crowder, who got the start in place of Derrick Favors, was also awful as he went just 1-of-11. And to add more injury to the insult, Dante Exum followed Ricky Rubio on the sideline with his own hamstring injury and has been ruled out of Game 5.
Apart from his awful Game 3, Ingles has arguably been the Jazz’s most consistent fantasy player. The Aussie is averaging 15 points, five boards and three assists, but he showed in Game 2 that he can explode for a big shooting game even on the road. If there’s anyone besides Mitchell who’s capable of putting together a huge fantasy night, it’s Jingles.
As for the Rockets, Capela just continues to prove that he is, in fact, one of the elite big men in the entire league. Over the last two games, he has recorded an insane ten blocks and four steals. He’s now averaging 15 points, 11 rebounds, three blocks and over one steal in the series. Don’t be surprised if he adds one more big game at home to end the series.
