Harden, Rockets aim to close out Jazz in Game 5

Mitchell and Ingles shot 30 percent and 34.8 percent at Vivint Smart Home Arena, respectively, with both missing 10 of 14 3-pointers. "If Gobert is going to be back [defensively], that's where I'm going to shoot it".

The Houston Rockets are on the brink of the Western Conference Finals after winning Game 4, 100-87, to claim a 3-1 series lead over the Utah Jazz. "I've been here before, 3-1".

The last time Paul had a 3-1 lead in the second round of the playoffs, he was a member of a promising Los Angeles Clippers team that seemed on its way to its first trip to the Western Conference finals.

"That wasn't a joke [about the mid-range shots being lay-ups]", Paul said. "He was extremely aggressive tonight, which we need from him".

Nevertheless, it's a massive relief for Utah Jazz and Australians fans, after watching their 22-year-old star limp into the tunnel, before collapsing as trainers arrived to help him.

Houston, which has been known for their offensive firepower, put forth a disruptive defensive effort. On his 33rd birthday, Chris Paul did damage in the midrange area, finishing with a game-high 27 points, 12 rebounds and six assists. "We had our chances and didn't convert", said Snyder.

The Jazz are now in a situation where they will play a waiting game with their point guards before Tuesday's contest. Some of them were open. "We just have to come out with the same mentality we had the last two games".

The Rockets started the second quarter on an 8-0 run, their lead ballooning to 15 after a lovely Luc Mbah A Moute left-handed layup through the foul and ensuing free throw. Utah trailed 58-48 at the half.

Jae Crowder made his first start of the season for the Jazz since being acquired from Cleveland in the three-team deal in February.

He said Ades sent him about 65,000 texts and there were times he received 500 messages a day from her, according to FOX10. After she was released, she started threatening the man via more texts, saying that "harm may come" to him.

"There's all different ways to win".

"No, not really", D'Antoni said when asked if he'd gotten any clarity on what happened. "If we use that time frame of how we played to go into Game 5, we'll be able to do big things".

When the Utah Jazz managed to steal Game 2 on the road against the Houston Rockets, they returned home with plenty of confidence ahead of Game 3.

"Houston is that good". Things were beginning to get out of hand in the minds of the officials, and they handed out technical fouls to Clint Capela, Mitchell, and Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni. "We're going to fight to the end and keep getting better and keep improving and try to get a win in Houston".

Rockets forward P.J. Tucker was hit with a flagrant foul type 1 for smacking Joe Ingles across the face as he prepared for a 3-point shot attempt at 2:20 in the third.

Jazz: Rubio missed his fourth straight game due to a left hamstring strain suffered in opening round but is close to returning.

Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and the Jazz's current core players are here to stay, and they produced a season that looks and feels like the start of something significant.

Paul also grabbed 12 rebounds and he recorded six assists. "He doesn't get a lot of credit for it", Harden said.
