Series stands at 2-1 in favour of the Rockets. Although they were blown out in the last game, Utah has the personnel to win against Houston. Game 1, Utah shot better than Houston but it just so happens Houston shot 53.8% from 3 point field goals (which is hard to maintain game to game) and were able to win off the back of this. Game 2, they came out and won away in Houston, getting the shots they wanted and breaking down Houston’s non existent defense. If they can shoot above 45-50% in field goals, Houston won’t be able to keep up.
This game has excellent pitching duel all over it. Wacha has been great this season, last game he only gave 2 earned runs in 5 innings. Lester pitching for Cubs, in his last outing managed to only give up no earned runs. With both teams’ offense struggling to put runs on the board. Should expect the pitching to keep this under wraps.
