Houston Rockets Create Sweet Music in Utah – End Four Game Losing Streak
In an emotional roller coaster game the Houston Rockets mired in a 4-game losing streak rallied to beat the Jazz. The win moves the Rockets ahead of the Utah Jazz who started the day ahead of them as the seventh seed in the Western Conference.
Though just a third of the way into the season this game felt like a must win for the Rockets as they inched perilously closer to the outside of the playoff seeds.
Down 69-57 with five minutes left in the third, the Rockets looked like they were headed for their fifth straight loss. However, unlike their previous losses the Rockets didn’t give up, digging deep to overcome adversity. Harden’s hot second half of scoring coupled with Montrezl Harrell‘s defense culminated in a nail biting Rockets win.
