Can the Rockets get it done against the Jazz tonight? It’s a massive game for both teams as the two squads teeter on the wrong side of .500, but a win tonight could change the team’s fortunes. Or it could all just be a flash in the pan, but that’s a story for a different day.

Tonight, the Rockets need to stop Donovan Mitchell. That’s how you beat the Jazz. Utah is a team that rallies around him and is eerily similar to Houston and how it rallies around James Harden. We’ll see who gets the better of the other tonight.

Starting Lineups

Rockets: Chris Paul, James Harden, James Ennis III, P.J. Tucker, Clint Capela

Jazz: Ricky Rubio, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Jae Crowder, Rudy Gobert
