The small-ball “Pocket Rockets” make their Toyota Center debut against the Jazz, a team coming off a controversial win Friday night against the Trail Blazers.

The Rockets also last played Friday night, though it’s one that the Rockets would like to forget. The team fell short by a little more than 30 and the team is looking to rebound tonight against the 4th-place Jazz.

If the playoffs began today, the Jazz and Rockets would meet in the first round in the 4-5 matchup for the second year in a row.

The next time the Jazz come to Houston, it could be for the playoffs.

TDS, this is your game thread. Enjoy!
