Yet another ugly game for the Rockets last night. But, they won.

One-sentence matchups because it's Saturday and I'm tired.

Also, I don't like the Jazz. Does anyone not from the Rockies area?

Tip off is at 7pm CST.

Matchups:

Point Guard: Jeremy Lin vs. John Lucas III

JL vs. JL3: 3 is greater than one (not).

Advantage: Rockets

Shooting Guard: James Harden vs. Richard Jefferson

This matchup could be legitimately closhahahahahahahahaha.

Advantage: Rockets

Small Forward: Chandler Parsons vs. Gordon Hayward

I really like Hayward and I think some team is going to force the Jazz to match a huge offer at the end of the season when he becomes a RFA.

Advantage: Even

Power Forward: Dwight Howard vs. Derrick Favors

Favors went 14/17 against the Suns; Howard has to dominate him.

Advantage: Rockets

Center: Omer Asik vs. Enes Kanter

Turkey vs. Turkey: you know you want it.

Advantage: Even

Bench

Rockets: Francisco Garcia, Omri Casspi, Aaron Brooks

Jazz: Alec Burks, Jamaal Tinsley, Mike Harris, Rudy Gobert, Ian Clark

Advantage: Rockets

Prediction: Rockets can't get into a groove in SLC, lose 98-81.
