Jazz use balanced attack to knock off Rockets


By Michael Murphy, for NBA.com

HOUSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- It was Fat Tuesday, and the Utah Jazz fattened up their already rich record by feasting on the slumping Rockets.

The Jazz, utilizing a typically balanced effort, beat the Rockets 104-95 at Toyota Center. Watching another loss wasn't an unusual experience for the 14,942 fans in attendance since it was the Rockets' sixth loss in their last eight home games.

But the Jazz have been zooming in the opposite direction, winning their fourth straight road game and picking up their 14th win in their last 16 games.

"We need to win consistently on the road," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, whose team continues its road trip tonight at New Orleans. "We have to learn that if we're going to be successful in the playoffs, you're going to have to win on the road.

"If you can't win on the road, then it's going to be tough to do anything if you get to the playoffs. You can shorten a series up really quick if you can win on the road and win at home as well."

The Jazz were able to handle the Rockets because they are more than capable of countering Houston's few reliable mismatches -- point guard and power forward.

Where the Rockets' Aaron Brooks usually has the advantage at the point because of his speed and quickness, the Jazz are able to counter with the power, strength and savvy of Deron Williams. The All-Star had a solid all-around game, finishing with 17 points and 15 assists, and wearing down Brooks over the course of the game. Brooks finished with 18 points, but shot 1-of-10 in the second half and 0-for-4 in a scoreless fourth quarter.

"Deron Williams was tremendous at passing," said Houston coach Rick Adelman. "If we take something away, they're going to find the open guy."

And at power forward, where the Rockets go with an effective rotation of Luis Scola and Carl Landry, the Jazz are simply overpowering, with Carlos Boozer and Paul Millsap doing the heavy hitting.

Boozer had an "off" night, finishing with 12 points and eight rebounds, but Millsap more than made up for it. Millsap, tossing bodies around in the post, had 20 points and 12 boards, pretty much matching what Scola and Landry managed together (a combined 19 points and 12 rebounds).

"Paul's done that since he's been here," Sloan said. "He's got a lot of confidence on his shot out on the floor, and he shoots it well around the basket, and he's pretty clever around the basket.

"He's worked at his game. He was not that way. He was a rebounder, and that's about all he was. That's the one thing you like to see people do -- take it in their own hands and go out and make yourself better."

Whenever the Rockets tried defensively, the Jazz had a counter.

When they collapsed in an effort to contain Boozer and Millsap inside, the Jazz, who finished with 30 assists, kicked it out to snipers like Mehmet Okur (21 points, 11 coming in the third quarter) and Kyle Korver (10 points on 4-of-5 shooting).

"Kyle played very well," said Sloan of Korver, who has been struggling to get minutes after recovering from injuries. "He's been working extremely hard to get back into a groove and get his conditioning. He's been doing the work."

And the Jazz cranked up the defense, too, not only forcing 24 turnovers, a season-high for the Rockets that led to 22 points for Utah, but also holding Houston scoreless for a crucial four-minute stretch late in the fourth quarter.

"As long as we put in the effort, we're going to have a chance," Boozer said. "Like tonight, we put the effort out there and we took advantage of an opportunity."

That opportunity presented itself in the final four-plus minutes of the game.

The Rockets took a 93-90 lead on a second straight 3-pointer from floor-spacing center David Andersen (18 points) with 4:41 remaining in the game. But that would be the Rockets' last points for quite a while -- the Jazz surged to a 100-93 lead over the next four minutes, a run that was finally stopped when Scola dropped in a short hook shot with 14.1 seconds to go. Over that span the Rockets turned the ball over three times and missed eight consecutive shots.

Game over.

"This was a big win," Boozer said. "They're a scrappy team of talented guys. This was on their court, so it's a good way to dust off the rust from the break and get this road trip going a little bit."

Time to move on to New Orleans, where the Jazz are looking for a bit of payback after the visiting Hornets took a 91-87 decision on Jan. 4.

But at least for one night, the win over Houston answered a question or two.

Were they the red-hot team that had been able to whip 13 of 14 opponents heading into the final game before the All-Star break? Or were they more like the squad that got manhandled by the Lakers in that final game before the break, losing by 15 points to a team that was playing without Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum?

"Yes, this game was very important for us to get that confidence back after the Lakers game," Williams said. "I'm happy with the win. I thought we had a lot of guys step up down the stretch. It was just a great team victory for everyone."
