Here are the game highlights of the match between the Utah Jazz and the Houston Rockets which was scheduled on February 10, 2020 (PHI time).
Though the 2019-20 NBA playoffs are still months away yet fans are treated with a potential first-round match in the Western Conference when the Jazz (4th) and the Rockets (5th) collided at the Toyota Center.
Bojan Bogdanovic was the star of the night after he hit the game-winning shot when his team traveled to Houston.
Despite having a bad shooting night, Jazz head coach Quin Snyder didn’t lose confidence from one of his ace shooters.
“You just play him, let him play,” Snyder said. “He’s such a competitor, and I tell him to keep playing. If he needs to hear that, he knows how much I trust him.”
The Jazz was able to dodge several bullets in the last few minutes of the fourth quarter. There were Robert Covington’s and PJ Tucker’s three-pointers where they almost took the win until Bogi’s stunner.
“We’ll take it,” said Jazz guard Mike Conley. “We would have liked to have won it on the last stop. Obviously, P.J. Tucker got a good luck and made that, and that’s the league. We came down and were able to draw up a good play for Bogi, and he was able to make it. I don’t know how he did it, but we’ll take it.”
Filipino-American Jazz player Jordan Clarkson led his squad with 30 points while his teammate Jordan Clarkson added Donovan Mitchell added 24 points.
For Houston, Russell Westbrook delivered 39 markers while James Harden chipped in with 28 points.
