Podcast: Rockets lose homecourt advantage as Jazz even series 1-1

Discussing Game 2 — how Utah adjusted, how the Rockets adjusted to the adjustments and can someone wake up Houston’s bench?

Indeed, the Utah Jazz were a different team for Game 2.

After the Rockets blew out the Jazz in the first half of Game 1, we saw a role reversal in Game 2. The Jazz came out on fire, building a 19-point lead before the Rockets came roaring back to take the lead themselves. But a 16-2 late fourth quarter run by Utah gave the Jazz the 116-108 win and evened the series 1-1. Game 3 is Friday in Salt Lake City.

Houston’s shooting from long range was rough (10-37, 27.0%) while Utah’s was outstanding (15-32, 46.9%).

The podcast discussion continues as MK Bower joins Dave Hardisty at Toyota Center after the game. Topics include the adjustments that Quin Snyder made, the Rocket counters to those adjustments in the second half, Utah shooting a bit out of their minds and the bench struggles for Houston.
