Chris Paul Sparks Rockets over Jazz in Game 4

On the season at home, the Rockets averaged nearly 114 points on 46 percent shooting from the field. It didn't help that they struggled with their offensive efficiency in their Game 4 matchup as well. In the other game, the Warriors also have a chance to finish off their series with the New Orleans Pelicans after taking a 3-1 lead with a 118-92 win on Sunday.

After leaving the court last night, Mitchell said, "If that's what he needs to win the fucking MVP, fuck it".

"It's so many things that happen throughout the game that don't show up on the stat sheet", Chris Paul said of Capela. Curry's 3-pointer completed an opening 10-2 run that gave Golden State a 71-56 lead barely two minutes into the second half. Mitchell had 13 points in the quarter, injecting a little bit of swagger into the Utah lineup, but Houston won the quarter regardless, and went into halftime with a 10 point lead.

This team didn't just win Games 3 and 4 in Utah, they absolutely dominated them. Utah has looked completely overwhelmed in each of their last two losses and looks like they're about to tap out (or have already). "We were hitting shots all over the place, kept the crowd out of it". You could see the guys feeding off good defense and good defense. He underwent shoulder surgery prior to the start of the season and made his 2017-18 debut on March 15.

Beyond the rebounds and blocks themselves, Capela sets the tone on defense, which has been critical to Houston's success so far. Utah finished with 16 turnovers and shot less than 40 percent from the field until the fourth quarter. "In spite of that, I thought we just hung in there and took shots and kept coming and kept coming and eventually couldn't get over the hill".

Most possessions ended up wasted and the gulf between the two teams quickly grew into a canyon. Can Quin Snyder devise a game plan like he did in Game 2 to get the Jazz a win and force the series to go back to Utah? Crowder hasn't done much to help in this series and his showing in Game 4 was bad.

"He doesn't get a lot of credit for it, he doesn't ask for a lot, he just goes out there and does his job every single night".

Houston ranks fifth in blocks allowed per game (4.4) while Utah ranks 11th (4.7). Donovan Mitchell missed a couple of wide-open shots at the rim, including a dunk and was blocked on a few more, while Joe Ingles missed a wide-open layup as did Jae Crowder, who had a tough night in going 1 of 11 from the field. Tucker said. "At this point, everybody who is still in the playoffs is a great team". Rockets fans are prepared to celebrate a second trip to the Western Conference Finals for the second time in four years.

Rockets point guard Chris Paul led all scorers with 27 points. His teammates don't need him to tell them how important this is. The issue of whether this ranks as the Jazz's best playoff showing in those 20 years is debatable, with the absence of Ricky Rubio in this series playing into the discussion.
