rward depth chart, Dike was believed Antworten

HOUSTON - The Houston Rockets are starting to gel after a rough stretch when new players were trying to find their place.James Harden had 30 points and five assists to lead the Rockets to their third straight victory, 97-82 over the Utah Jazz on Saturday night.Were catching a rhythm, Harden said. Defensively, we look pretty solid. Offensively, we were sharing the basketball, and guys were scoring. Its a free-for-all out there.Harden, the leagues leader in points per game, had his 15th 30-point game.After acquiring Corey Brewer and Josh Smith within a week around Christmas, the Rockets lost five of seven. With their roles now clearly defined, things look promising in Houston.We had parts in the game where we moved the ball very, very well, Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. We played in spurts all night long. We dont want to do that, we want to be a little bit better.Harden made four of Houstons 13 3-pointers, including two in the fourth quarter, to maintain the large lead built during a turnover-filled third quarter for Utah.Houston used 16 steals and forced 31 turnovers to overcome poor first-half shooting.Trey Burke and Enes Kanter both scored 16 for Utah, and Derrick Favours had 15 points in just 17 minutes.Gordon Hayward, who leads the Jazz with 19.1 points per game, was held to just nine, as he was blanketed by Harden for much of his 30 minutes.The Rockets struggled to find their shots early. They rank first in 3-pointers made, but missed 10 of their first 13 attempts. In the third quarter, however, Houston heated up, hitting four straight 3s during one stretch and 5 of 8 to pull away.After the game was tied at 23 to end the first quarter, Houstons defence clamped down in the second, forcing 10 of Utahs 18 first-half turnovers in the frame.The struggling Jazz hit their season high in turnovers midway through the third.After winning five of their last seven games to close out the last two weeks of 2014, the Jazz have lost four of six to start 2015.Utah coach Quin Snyder said the turnovers were more a tribute to Houstons length and style of defence than shortcomings for the Jazz.Theyre long, theyre quick, and they have Dwight Howard back there, protecting the rim so they can be even more aggressive, Snyder said. Thats why theyre one of the top defensive teams in the league.Howard was held to just eight points and eight boards in 36 minutes.The Jazz scored a season-low 14 points in the second quarter, and the Rockets led 46-37 at the half.Behind Hardens performance, Donatas Motiejunas had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Trevor Ariza, Smith and Patrick Beverley each had 10 points.Were just trying to be a burst of energy, Smith said of the veteran depth. Whenever we see the starters not really getting off to a good start, we try to be that energy and that enthused group to come out and get it going.TIP-INSJazz: C Enes Kanter returned after a four-game absence after suffering a right ankle sprain on Jan. 2. Kanter scored 16 points and added six rebounds in 21 minutes. ... C Rudy Gobert, who entered the game averaging a league-leading 5.0 blocks per game since Jan. 1, had three blocks, including two against Josh Smith.Rockets: F Trevor Ariza recorded his 12th game of 3-plus steals, which is tied for the third highest in the league. He finished with a game-high five. ... After making just three free throws in a loss Wednesday at the Bulls, who made 27, the Rockets hit 18 to Utahs 19.
