The Houston Rockets are seeking to send the Jazz home on Tuesday night, May 9 at Toyota Center for the Game 5 of their second round series in the 2018 NBA Playoffs. Here is how you can watch Jazz-Rockets Game 5 live stream online.
Utah Jazz will be attempting to avenge and try their best to stay away from getting eliminated in Game 5 on Houston’s home court advantage on Tuesday, while the Houston Rockets, meanwhile, will aim to wrap up the series and prep up for the Western Conference Finals.
The Jazz snatched the home-court advantage with a spectacular production in Game 2, but the Rockets took it right away with a ruling performance of their own lineup in Game 3. There was really never any hope for Utah in the contest, as Houston extended their lead to double-digits after just a few minutes time remaining of the clock, and led by 30 points at halftime.
The Rockets won all the road contest against the Jazz to take a controlling 3-1 series lead in their Western Conference Semifinals series. Despite getting a lot of commends for their offensive prowess, the Rockets posted just 89.5 points per game in those victories. Contrarily, the Rockets star basketball player James Harden has stunned the defense of their opponent. Harden is averaging 30.5 points, 8.3 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game in the series against the Jazz. And he’s getting massive amount of help from his teammates. Chris Paul, Clint Capela, Eric Gordon and P.J. Tucker are all averaging double-figures.
The Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell has showcased a an electrifying performance in his first ever playoffs appearance. However, he is shooting a disappointing 32.5 percent from the floor and 24 percent from beyond the rainbow against Rockets. Houston already know that he’s the driving force for Utah and have an answer in on slowing Mitchell down.
Utah entered the Game of the series without their starting point guard Ricky Rubio and the team have struggled to fill the shoes. Joe Ingles is posting 15.8 points on 46 percent shooting from the field, but it hasn’t been sufficient for then to take the lead as Utah lacks key playmakers. Still, the Jazz has secured the victory in Houston during this series and will have to mirror their Game 2 performance to keep their postseason hope alive.
