Game Date: 03 December 2013

Venue: EnergySolutions Arena

 

Houston Rockets

As per 12 games, Houston Rockets has already raked eight victories to send them into the second highest spot in the Southwest Division table.  Only San Antonio Spurs head the way higher than the Texan team does.

 

The Rockets players are a fierce pack of giants, displaying intelligent, crisp, and agile ball maneuvers that are often paired with a healthy dose of perimeter shooting. In just four games, the team has already knocked down nearly 38 percent of its treys, potentially ranking among the finest this season.

 

Kevin McHale’s troupe is eager to bludgeon opposing teams, with its main modus operandi centering around the protection of the rim.

 

Utah Jazz

In the Northwest Division, Utah Jazz is being left behind by its rivals. The team is placed in the chart’s lowest spot, winning just one game in the first 13 matches they had this season. There is so much work to do in order for Tyrone Corbin to turn his team around.

 

The team’s lifelines have recently been directed toward the return of Trey Burke. The 2013 NCAA Player of the Year had not seen action since October 12 when he injured himself in Utah’s third preseason game against the Los Angeles Clippers.  The 6-1 point guard has been recovering since his injury, and further improvement means that he’ll be able to counter his team’s dwindling performance.

 

Just before the onset of the 2013–14 season, Utah did not retain either Paul Millsap or Al Jefferson. Millsap accommodated a two-year offer to join the Atlanta Hawks, while Jefferson inked accord to partake duties for the Charlotte Bobcats franchise.
