The Houston Rockets pulled off a 98-90 victory over the Jazz and now lead the series 2-0. The Rockets came out behind but caught up in the second half. Houston should limit their three point shooting because a 4-24 just won't cut it when they go on the road.

Utah had Carlos Boozer doing it all but Okur was a non factor. He had only 4 points while Boozer had 41 which is a heavy load for Boozer. If you were watching the halftime show you would have heard Charles talk about the need for diversification in Okurs game. I agree with that and think the coaching staff of the Jazz could work wiht him on it.

The Pistons beat the Magic 98-90 to also take a 2-0 series lead. I am not surprised by the outcome of this game. I think the Magic will get lucky and steal a game back in Orlando. Detroit has to play with edge on the road so they can sweep the Magic.
