Moute was left open last year against the Clippers and couldn't hit shots. Was a big reason the Jazz won. Obviously the Rockets are a better team than the Clippers were.

Gobert is a smart big man. He will make the paint like a warzone for Harden and Paul.
Jazz will take it in 6.

Harden put up 56/13 against a Gobert-led defense this season.

The Rockets offense is a COMPLETELY different animal than OKC. But you'll find that out.

Houston in 5...possibly 6

Utah doesn't have the shooting and overall scoring to get any further.

Hopefully I'm wrong. Not exactly enthusiastic about Houston while Mitchell is quickly becoming one of my favorite players (watch dude have a Wade-esque 2006 playoff run )

Adrian Wojnarowski: Tough blow for Utah: Jazz guard Ricky Rubio could miss 10 days with left hamstring injury, league sources tell ESPN. His return could be sooner, based upon progression in rehabilitation. – via Twitter wojespn

Houston's offense rely on 3 and shots in the paint. Gobert will deny a huge portion of inside shots.

I think, for Houston to overcome that, midrange Master Chris Paul will have to show up

Utah won't be able to generate enough offense, unfortunately.

Rox in 5-6

Houston is going to force Gobert to switch in the Harden/Capela pick and roll and then Harden will just take it straight to the basket like he did on Rudy during the season. The Jazz best chance is to aggresively double team Harden and they force him to make stupid mistakes. That's one thing that Harden struggled with at times during the season, the double team. If Paul shows up, we should be good, but it will knock the Rockets off their rhythm since Harden sometimes doesn't get rid of the ball fast enough.

They'll make Harden kill them from 3 like they did with Westbrook.

You’ll need some luck for that to work well since harden is a lot better shooter and arguably has even better shot selection from there

But he's not great from there. They'll also try to isolate him on the pick and roll at the other end
