Jazz vs Rockets prediction

The Jazz continue to pile up the losses and their offense has taken a step back with Markkanen and Clarkson out with injuries. The Jazz have pretty much thrown in the towel on the season. Don't look now, but the Rockets ave won 7 straight games and 9 of their last 10 games overall. The Rockets are also just two games back from the Warriors for the 10th seed in the west. All of a sudden things are interesting in Houston. The Rockets have also covered 9 of their last 10 games. Two teams heading in different directions. I have to lay the points with the Rockets at home.
