Houston Rockets vs. Utah Jazz - 4/17/19 NBA - Playoffs Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Houston Rockets vs. Utah Jazz - 4/17/19 NBA - Playoffs Pick, Odds, and Prediction

With Saturday's 101-96 victory in Denver as San Antonio made its 22nd straight postseason appearance, the Spurs coach won his 1,413th game between the regular season and playoffs to become the winningest coach in National Basketball Association history.

DeMar DeRozan posted a double-double while Derrick White and LaMarcus Aldridge also came through the clutch as the Spurs shocked the No. 2 Denver Nuggets, 101-96, in their Western Conference matchup on Saturday, April 13 (Sunday, April 14, Manila time). With Eric Gordon as his primary defender, Utah go-to guy Donovan Mitchell had a particularly tough night, finishing with 19 points on 7-of-18 shooting with no assists and five turnovers.

"He can have a bad game and they'll attribute it to something". Both players scored on a number of lobs and offensive rebounds. And Murray must play better down the stretch. So our work is not done with him.

Houston's entire starting lineup had at least 10 points.

"To be honest, nothing", Jokic said. "Just because it's [my] first, doesn't really mean nothing to me".

"We didn't let Jokic play as he wanted and they didn't let LaMarcus play as much as he wanted", said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. "They did the same thing on me". "For somebody who got put into that position, and to learn that position with a bunch of new players is really remarkable". Give them credit: They did a helluva job. As a result, Harden ended up with 29 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds, content in the first half to dish off to his teammates before cranking it up offensively later in the game.

The double team was only effective because the Nuggets kept missing wide open shots which only encouraged the Spurs to keep doubling Jokic. "They're both great players, and they're going to continue to get a lot of attention throughout the series, I'm sure".

The Jazz did slow down the Beard slightly, limiting him to only three free-throw attempts (11.0 season average), but couldn't stop his overall impact. "I think I'll be ready for it". Nothing truly needs to change with how the Rockets like to operate the offense, same sets, same rotations, just look to make something happen a little more quickly that they might against other, lesser opposition. The rating scale is 1-5 stars. The playoffs started with two upsets as the Toronto Raptors and the Philadelphia 76ers loss their home opener followed by the San Antonio Spurs going on the road and defeating the Denver Nuggets. "I've got a wedding ring", Malone joked. The Jazz had 18 turnovers.

"We struggled to make shots", said Nuggets head coach Michael Malone.

Following Game 1, a frustrated Murray spent close to an hour shooting on the Nuggets' practice floor.

Asked what adjustments he had in mind for Game 2, Malone said simply, "Make shots". Game 2 is scheduled for Wednesday, also at Toyota Center.

In reality, the Jazz took a page out of the Milwaukee Bucks' playbook: Force Harden right, shade him towards the basket and send help early and often. "When we're aggressive as a team, our defense goes to another level". Coming back from adversity all season, injuries and all that, come-from-behind wins and all that, so this is no different. "Then I expect we'll be fine after that".
