A Jazzy Rematch with the Rockets
Posted Apr 17 2008 8:37AM

A year ago, the Houston Rockets had homecourt advantage and a 3-2 series lead against an unproven, but up-and-coming Utah Jazz. But the Jazz won Game 6 at home, and then edged out the Rockets by four on the road in Game 7, extending Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming’s run of first-round exits.

When Yao Ming went down for the season on Feb. 26 with a stress fracture in his left foot, Houston had won 12 in a row. Instead of giving in, McGrady and the Rockets went out that night and won. And then did so for the next nine games, logging the second-longest win streak in league history (22 games).

But as the playoffs drew nigh and they went 3-5 post-streak, the rest of the West saw weakness, and wanted to take them on in Round One. But the Rockets rebounded to win five of their last seven, setting up a rematch with Utah; the run included a crucial last-night-of-the-regular-season victory against the Clippers that earned them homecourt advantage despite holding the lower seed.

While McGrady and the Rockets will need to return to their unrelenting, efficient attack – on both sides of the ball – if they’re to push the Jazz to the brink for a second season, it’s likely to prove a tougher task this season. Deron Williams has continued to improve, and outplayed his draft-mate, New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul – an MVP candidate – in all but one of their four head-to-head matchups this season; more importantly, the Jazz won three of them.

Williams’ pick-and-roll partner, Carlos Boozer, chalked up a 20/10 (points and rebounds) for a second straight season. The job of guarding him will fall to NBA rookie Luis Scola, who finished third in NBA.com’s Rookie Rankings after a second-half surge that coincided with “The Streak.” If the Rockets contain Boozer, the responsibility will fall on the shoulders of midseason pickup Kyle Korver, whose Dec. 29 arrival sparked the 16-16 Jazz to reel off a 38-12 finish. Had they kicked off the season with that same that .760 winning percentage, the Jazz would be 62-game winners and the No. 1 seed in the West.

As is, the Jazz find themselves facing a Rockets team that few expect to advance. But Houston thrived in the underdog role when Yao went down, and a similar “us-against-the-world” mentality could result in the upset. This series is going to be a battle, which will make for entertaining endings throughout.

I think the Rockets got a HUGE advantage by havin the home court advantage cuz we all kno that if Utah had it there would literally be no chance.. u jus dont beat a team twice when they only lost like 4 games at home the whole season...if they win 1 in Utah then i think they will win cuz Utah plays sh*tty away from Salt Lake City BUT if Houston does drop 1 game in Houston to start the series then they lookin to go back to Houston down 3-1 cuz i jus dont see them winnin in Utah...

with all that said i'm gonna say Utah in 6(even tho i want the Rockets to win)
