The Utah Jazz will tip-off their 2014-2015 season tonight at 7:00 PM against the Houston Rockets at EnergySolutions Arena. The Houston Rockets are coming off of a 108-90 victory on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Jazz have been a fun team to watch during the preseason. They are a young team, hopefully they continue to play with confidence throughout the year, even when tough times arise. The Rockets will be a tough challenge for the Jazz defensively as they have great shooters on their team. They like to run the court as well. The Rockets have great players defensively as well in Dwight Howard and James Harden. It will interesting to see how well the Jazz execute their offense against a high quality defensive team. The Jazz will need to limit their turnovers if they want to have a chance as well as slow down the Rockets’ transition offense.
