KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: GUARDS: Houston has gutted its roster, and this is JEREMY LIN's team now. Coach Kevin McHale will use the same pick-and-roll offense he used with Goran Dragic, and Lin should do what he did in New York a year ago . . . KEVIN MARTIN is on the trade block. As long as he's in Houston, he'll be in and out of McHale's doghouse, especially seeing that he's not in the long-term plans . . . JEREMY LAMB should push Martin for minutes early. Lamb will have some defensive issues, but he's a cagey scorer who should mesh well with Lin . . . CARLOS DELFINO replaces Chase Budinger as the team's most reliable marksman from three-point range . . . TONEY DOUGLAS' defensive ability puts him in the running for a rotation spot . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON can give them 12 to 15 minutes a night . . . Rookie SCOTT MACHADO, an outstanding passer, will back up Lin . . . GARY FORBES will have trouble finding minutes. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS was a nice surprise a year ago. He's a fifth option offensively but does the hustle/energy thing well . . . 2011 first-rounder DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS is a skilled 7-footer who fits with Lin. Expect him to grab a starting job by midseason, but he can also play center when required . . . This might be the year PATRICK PATTERSON makes an impact. His game is limited, but he can rebound and score around the basket . . . ROYCE WHITE is a 270-pounder with point guard skills. He needs the ball in his hands though, which is why he's not a great fit with Lin in the starting lineup . . . TERRENCE JONES has a tweener skill set. At this point, he's better suited for the second unit . . . Speaking of 'tweeners, MARCUS MORRIS looks to be nowhere near contributing. CENTERS: OMER ASIK earned his reputation as a defensive stud in Chicago, and he'll get a little more offensive freedom in Houston. He is quite foul-prone though, and he'll be tested on the free-throw line early and often . . . His backup, GREG SMITH, has more fouls (17) than points (14) in his 69-minute NBA career.
UTAH: GUARDS: MO WILLIAMS will get a crack at running the point in Utah. He's more of a combo guard, but he'll do fine in an offense that revolves around the bigs . . . RANDY FOYE is a gunning combo guard who will step in as Utah's sixth man . . . ALEC BURKS started to come on late last year, making Raja Bell expendable. He'll come off the bench, but if he can start knocking down perimeter shots, he's in for a much bigger role . . . Yeah, that's right, EARL WATSON and JAMAAL TINSLEY are both still around. And they're both riding pine in Salt Lake . . . KEVIN MURPHY is a cagey scorer from tiny Tennessee Tech (no word on his Golden Tee skills). FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was Utah's best all-around player last season and will be playing for a new contract. He should be able to keep his minutes despite Utah's young bigs behind him . . . GORDON HAYWARD will probably slide to the two. He has a chance for a breakout year after a strong finish to 2011-12 . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS gets a fresh start in Utah after a disappointing run in Atlanta. He figures to have a similar complementary role with the Jazz . . . DERRICK FAVORS is a long-term solution in the frontcourt. His offensive game is coming on, and he's already a far better defender than Al Jefferson . . . Slam dunk champion JEREMY EVANS and DeMARRE CARROLL will both provide energy off the bench. CENTERS: Like Millsap, AL JEFFERSON will hit free agency after the season. He's an incredibly limited player, a great scorer in the low post, but incapable of any other contributions and a huge liability on defense . . . ENES KANTER is still a few years away from a starting job. He has some rough edges to his game, but really had no problem adjusting to the physicality of the NBA.

*Rockets-Jazz Preview* ======================

By MATT BEARDMORE STATS Writer

Houston (4-6) at Utah (5-6), 9:00 p.m. EDT

A new starting five didn't generate a quicker start, but the Utah Jazz still found a way to finish off a .500 trip.

Now, they get a chance to win their 10th straight in Salt Lake City as they face the road-weary Houston Rockets on Monday night.

Disappointed at his team's slow start in Friday's 99-93 loss at Philadelphia, Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin inserted Randy Foye and Derrick Favors into the starting lineup Saturday, with Gordon Hayward and Marvin Williams coming off the bench for the first time this season.

Utah pulled out an 83-76 victory over league-worst Washington to split its four-game trip, but a 15-point first quarter and a 37.8 percent shooting effort for the game was not what Corbin had in mind when he adjusted his rotation.

"The last game of a four-game road trip, you typically get a little lower in energy," he told the league's official website. "We played last night, but we just didn't execute on either end of the floor as well as I thought we would."

It's uncertain if Corbin will stick with the same starting lineup as Utah tries to improve to 4-0 at home, but forward Paul Millsap doesn't seem to be a big fan of the new starting five.

"I didn't feel too comfortable with it," Millsap said after scoring a season-low six points.

The Jazz, though, have looked at comfortable at home, winning by an average of 13.7 points. Utah is undefeated in Salt Lake City since a 107-105 loss to Phoenix on April 4.

The Jazz, whose last 10-game home winning streak spanned Feb. 24-April 6, 2010, have lost just five times in Houston's last 28 regular-season visits.

The Rockets (4-6) were routed 104-83 in their last trip to Salt Lake City on Feb. 29. A 103-91 home loss to Utah on April 11 started a late swoon in which they dropped seven of their final nine games last season and missed the playoffs as the Jazz claimed the West's last postseason spot.

The Rockets' defense will have to improve if they want contend this season. After falling 119-117 in overtime to Portland on Friday to begin their trip, Houston gave up 40 first-quarter points in Sunday's 119-108 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. The hosts shot 54.1 percent as the Rockets fell for the sixth time in eight games.

"We still need to be playing a lot better, so there's no excuse," Chandler Parsons said of the Rockets playing the last five games without head coach Kevin McHale, who is attending to a personal matter.

Before beginning a stretch of nine of 11 at home on Wednesday, the Rockets will try to avoid a fourth straight road loss. If that's going to happen, James Harden might have to pick up his scoring after finishing with 20 points on 7-of-18 shooting on Sunday.

The Rockets are 1-6 when he finishes with fewer than 30 points.

Harden leads the team with 49 points on the trip, while Parsons has 43 after scoring a team-best 24 with four 3-pointers on Sunday.

Jeremy Lin, who has 21 assists on Houston's trip, scored 28 points and handed out eight assists the last time he faced Utah, a 99-88 New York victory on Feb. 6, in his first career start.

The Rockets are averaging 45.4 rebounds, with center Omer Asik leading the league at 12.8 per game.

Jazz big man Al Jefferson is scoring 15.5 points per game with a team-best 11.6 rebounds. The Jazz are averaging 46.1 boards.
