    Interested to see how this goes. I feel like last year's pre-ASB Rockets would drop this one.

    Don't take the Jazz lightly. Beat them convincingly.

    The emergence of Rudy Gobert could help the Jazz surprise folks.

    Not this game though, 103-84 Rockets

    I feel sorry for us because were about to be exum'd ;)

    B2b in salt lake is gonna be way tougher than everyone will think. Last time we played a b2b in salt lake we were down 17 in the first half (last year) and came back to win with amazing shooting

    Against Utah we're going to have to give them an ample serving of Black. It's Utah's not-so-well kept secret that players like Black give them fits. With such softies as Burke, Exum, and Kantor, Black is the perfect fit to ram up that offense. With his thick and imposing presence up the middle, Black will have Gordon Hayward flailing helplessly as all his well made plans go awry.

    So happy with the way Ariza played last night, hope he can continue against the Jazz.

    For sure, they have a fun team on paper which will make it easier.

    I have played against Dante and he is a great guy and want to see him suceed so aus basketball can grow.

    If you think Exum was hyped up wait until Ben simmonds is draft eligable (I have seen him he's like tmac level against the scrubs he plays) who is ranked 3rd in his class

    And also thon maker ranked 1 in his class (0 idea if he's good, only seen clips)

    Could make it 4 top 5 picks for Australia in 10 years (potentially 2 no.1's) which should equal quality fiba team if they all reach their potential

    I will always hate the Jazz, that will never change...but damn I love me some Exum & Ingles!

    You could imagine my anger when the Jazz selected Exum in the Lottery...I was like, 'NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Anywhere but Utah!!!!'

    Favors and Kanter can gives Jones a tough time, especially with the high altitude. Let's hope we all have a good all round game and go 2-0 up.

    I predict a close win for the good guys.

    I'm kinda happy Orlando avoided him, Payton would of out preformed him the first couple of years and the bust tag would have been thrown around on him.

    This is going to be a tough game. Second night of a B2B in Utah, Synder is a good coach and they have talent.

    I am expecting this to be a 5 point game either way.

    It's a game the Rockets should win, but we know how those can turn out. This I think will be a good early test to see how much they've matured since last year. They dropped quite a few gimmes in the first couples months of the 2013-14 season, so hopefully they can avoid that habit this year.

    The Jazz always seem to jump on us early in their home games. Stop Gordon Hayward and we'll be ok.
