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 JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Houston (24-22) at Utah (24-20), 9:00 p.m. EDT

The Houston Rockets appear to be back on track after their longest losing streak of the season, but their next challenge will be a difficult one.

A third consecutive victory won't come easy Monday night as the Rockets try to prevent the Utah Jazz from a seventh straight home win.

Houston (24-22) has won two in a row and three of four after a seven-game skid. The Rockets' offense was slowed down during the slump, averaging 93.3 points per game compared to their 104.4 mark on the season, which is tied for second in the NBA.

But the Rockets are averaging 103.5 over their last four games, including a 119-106 win against Brooklyn on Saturday. James Harden scored 29 points as Houston claimed significant advantages in rebounding (50-31) and points in the paint (60-24).

Jeremy Lin credited a film session on Thursday for helping right the ship.

"We weren't doing what we were supposed to do," said Lin, who had 14 points and nine assists. "The coaches showed us a few days ago what we can look like. That was a nice reminder to all of us."

Houston also had 31 assists - one shy of a season high - and only 12 turnovers, its fewest since Jan. 2. Seventeen of the team's first 20 field goals were assisted.

"Our spacing was unbelievable," said Chandler Parsons, whose 11 assists were a career high. "It allowed more guys to penetrate, it allowed more guys to have open shots and we really moved the ball great."

The Rockets' transition offense had slowed during the losing streak, averaging 15.4 fast-break points over seven games. They're up to 24.0 fast-break ppg in the last four, including 27 in the win against the Nets.

"It's how we need to play," coach Kevin McHale said. "But we've got to be determined to do it. You've got to be determined when you're tired. You've got to be determined when things aren't going (well), you've got to be determined to just keep on going."

The Jazz (24-20) have won five of six overall and six in a row at home, matching the season-best streak they started the year with. They're 15-4 at EnergySolutions Arena where they average 102.2 ppg while allowing 95.7, numbers that are nearly flipped on the road at 95.8 and 101.0.

Utah's home streak appeared to be in jeopardy on Saturday when they went to overtime against the Pacers after blowing an eight-point lead with less than three minutes left in regulation. The collapse saw Gordon Hayward turn it over on each of the Jazz's final three possessions, but they eventually claimed a 114-110 victory.

"We made some mistakes, and we've got to get better there," coach Tyrone Corbin said. "But the fight these guys showed and have shown all year is really encouraging."

Hayward is day-to-day after spraining his shoulder when he ran into a hard screen, though x-rays were negative. His six turnovers tied a career high.

"You have to move on," said Hayward, Utah's third-leading scorer at 13.5 ppg. "You can't worry about the past. My teammates did a good job of bailing me out from some bad plays."

Hayward scored a game-high 21 off the bench but Utah lost 124-116 at Houston on Dec. 1. The Jazz held the Rockets to 34.9 percent from the field in a 102-91 victory on Nov. 19 as part of their season-opening six-game home streak.
