Rockets drop tired Jazz, give Adelman milestone win

HOUSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Utah Jazz are headed to the playoffs, but the Houston Rockets were the ones who looked like a playoff team Wednesday.

The Rockets delivered one of their best performances of the season, combining crisp ball movement on offense with a spirited effort on defense to defeat the Jazz 113-96 before a crowd of 15,004 at Toyota Center. The victory not only secured Houston's seventh 40-win season since 2002-03, but also made Rick Adelman only the 11th head coach in NBA history to earn 900 wins.

"I've been fortunate. I've had four situations [as a head coach] and three of them have been great," Adelman said. "I was glad to get [900] with our guys this year. To get there, we had to get 40 ... and now we want to see if we can't get a few more.

"We came out from the start of the game and carried it right out through the whole game. I'm sure [the Jazz] were very tired after the game they had last night, but we got after them and took control of the game."

Wednesday's loss is quite the setback for the Jazz, who fell from second place in the Western Conference to at least fourth. They could fall to fifth if Phoenix defeats San Antonio on Wednesday.

One night after using nearly every ounce of energy it had to earn a crucial division win over Oklahoma City in overtime, Utah simply lacked the intensity needed to knock off an aggressive Houston squad.

The Rockets dominated two key hustle areas, outscoring the Jazz by a combined margin of 25-9 on fast breaks and second-chance points in the first half. And while Utah managed to hang around for most of the first half due to excellent shooting, its inability to consistently rotate and put hands in shooters' faces on the defensive end allowed Houston to bust the game open with a 19-8 run to begin the third quarter.

Matters only became worse for the Jazz after that, as the Rockets pushed their lead to 26 points before committing several sloppy turnovers that allowed Utah to cut into its deficit. No matter what Jazz coach Jerry Sloan tried -- going with a small or large lineup -- his team failed to compete at Houston's level.

"They just man-handled us. We couldn't stay with them from the beginning," Sloan said. "It was a long night, and hopefully we will forget about it. I expect a lot from our guys every game. If the energy is not there, it just isn't there."

The trio of Aaron Brooks, Kevin Martin and Luis Scola (24 points on 9-for-14 shooting) did most of the damage for Houston, combining for 74 of its first 96 points. But the defense and rebounding Chuck Hayes (game-high 18 rebounds) supplied may have been the biggest key to the blowout. Carlos Boozer quietly scored 18 points and grabbed a team-high 11 rebounds, and the rest of the Jazz's big men failed to match Hayes' aggression in the post until it was too late.

"Chuck Hayes was incredible," Adelman said. "I thought he really set the tone from the very start of the game [with five rebounds in the first 4:30]."

Brooks (game high-tying 28 points, five assists) kept Utah from clogging the paint early in Wednesday's contest by nailing all three of his 3-point attempts to guide the Rockets to a 33-22 lead after one quarter. Brooks' confidence spread to his teammates, as Houston made its next three attempts from beyond the arc to cap a 7-for-7 start.

But the Rockets shot 36 percent in the second quarter, forcing Brooks to use dribble-penetration and crisp passes to create better looks for his teammates. Deron Williams showed flashes of success on the defensive end, but clearly didn't have enough left in the tank to exploit his size advantage over Brooks.

"They just had more energy than we did," Williams said. "It was a tough loss, and we can't hang our heads.

"I've known Aaron and watched him play for a while, and he is developing into a great point guard in this league. He runs their offense to perfection and he is 'lights out' from the 3."

In his third game since returning from a left shoulder sprain, Martin (game-high-tying 28 points, 9-for-9 free throws) sought contact and benefited greatly from Houston's crisp ball rotation. Once Brooks loosened the Jazz's defense, Martin found holes all over the court for open looks.

With his sharp-shooting guard back in the lineup, Adelman believes ending the season above .500 is certainly achievable.

"We're trying to finish the seasons strong," Adelman said. "We'd like to finish with a winning record. Since we can't make the playoffs, we'd like to be that ninth team. That's what we're pointing for."

The Jazz's offense appeared out-of-sync for most of the game, as Utah failed to drop triple-digits on the Rockets' defense for the first time this season. Williams was the biggest symbol of that dysfunction, as he was limited to 12 points on 3-for-9 shooting and seven assists in 27 minutes of action.

With Williams off his game, the Jazz committed 14 turnovers in the first half but kept Houston from dominating in transition. Thanks to solid hustle and team defense, the Jazz limited the Rockets to nine points off those miscues. But in the end, that was one of few areas where Utah came close to matching the Rockets' intensity.

"We didn't get stops, and Houston played better and took it to us all game," Boozer said. "We didn't have any energy."
