The Utah Jazz and Houston Rockets are four and five respectively in the standings so anytime they meet up will be big. This game had big implications in the standings which meant both teams would give it their all. That was seen in the game-winner by Bojan Bogdanovic.
The deep three-pointer is becoming a mastered art form in the NBA and more players are able to hit the shot. Steph Curry made the deep three famous but now it seems like more players are going farther back to shoot threes. Bogdanovic’s game-winner was a deep three and it was more in the lucky variety.
Now the Jazz are 1.5 games ahead of the Rockets for the fourth spot. This win could come in handy down the road for them if they are able to win more games and maintain their seeding. Home court in the West will be crucial.
