I need a rooting interest in the Utah/Houston game ... I'm not looking ahead or taking anything for granted, but that game is very likely going to be played and I am very likely going to watch it -- so I would rather root for the team that the Warriors would potentially have the best chance against in round two.
The way I figure it, the Jazz stand a much better chance of running with the Warriors ... but if the Rockets can control the tempo, there is little if any chance the Warriors can beat them in the half court.
In the season series, 2-2 Jazz, 2-1 Rockets.
Help me out, who should I root for?
