Rockets will be able to somewhat nullify the Jazz's biggest strength in Gobert due to their offensive scheme.

Should be a relatively short series IMO.

Jazz chances increase if Rubio is out!

Jazz barely got pass an OKC squad that was basically Westbrook + bench warmers. No chance vs the Rockets. I'll say Rockets in 5 maybe even a sweep.

Not going to be a brief series. I think I posted Rockets in 5 before(?) Regardless, I'm switching to Jazz in 6, barring serious injuries.

Mitchell is the real deal, Crowder should be a bigger deal in this series, Ingles will piss some fools off.

Harden and/or CP3 can't afford to have miserable shooting games or they wouldn't escape with the win in this series. This team is way smarter and more cohesive than the Wolves. Hoping they can study up on how to limit the Rockets from doing what they want or it will be 4-0.

I think the Jazz are a different team than the ones the Rockets smacked around in the regular season. However, they don't have as much firepower. Mitchell is great, Ingles is good, and their bench is fine but Rockets come at you in waves. They will keep a game close and than can drop 40 in the 3rd quarter. I think Gobert has the ability to affect a game defensively, but the Rockets 3 point shooting is ridiculous. I'll root for the Jazz but...

Rockets in 6.

The Jazz are one of those teams the Rockets smacked around in the regular season, swept them in fact. Considering the Jazz's total collapse on game 5, and their near collapse in game 6, they look very vulnerable to the Rockets' patented second half onslaughts.

You mention Utah roleplayers but not Houstons. Tucker, Ariza and Mbah will give the Jazz offense fits

How was the RS series between the two teams? Didn't Houston sweep?
