KEY GAME INFORMATION
UTAH: GUARDS: TREY BURKE is a savvy floor general who can shoot, but he's also short and a mediocre athlete (and we've seen how that's worked out for Brandon Knight). He'll step right in at the point, but immediate success is hardly guaranteed . . . ALEC BURKS is locked in at the two. He'll be able to hang in defensively, and he's a decent ball-handler and passer. His shaky jumper is an issue . . . BRANDON RUSH returns from an ACL tear and could emerge as the sixth man . . . JOHN LUCAS III is here as a Plan B at the point and to help mentor Burke a bit . . . IAN CLARK won't see a lot of action as a rookie, but he can play either guard spot. FORWARDS: DERRICK FAVORS will run into foul trouble, but he will be a nightly double-double threat and rim protector . . . GORDON HAYWARD becomes Utah's No. 1 option on offense. He'll struggle to create his own shot with defenses focusing on him, but he is a knock-down, three-point shooter who's improving off the dribble . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS is coming off heel surgery and will miss at least the first month of the season. He's not a part of Utah's long-term plans, but will likely see minutes due to the team's lack of depth . . . RICHARD JEFFERSON is a player/coach at this point in his career . . . JEREMY EVANS will be brainstorming for the dunk contest. CENTERS: ENES KANTER is a major upgrade over Al Jefferson as a defender and in the team concept on offense. He immediately becomes one of the league's better starting centers . . . ANDRIS BIEDRINS at least has a chance to reestablish himself as a capable back-up . . . RUDY GOBERT has freakish size, but he's a major project who is nowhere near ready to contribute.
HOUSTON: GUARDS: JAMES HARDEN is a franchise player, and as one of the league's elite pick-and-roll threats, he and Dwight Howard have the potential to be dominant . . . Trade rumors will continue to circle JEREMY LIN, who isn't an off-the-ball threat to fit alongside Harden. He is, however, clearly a starting-caliber point guard . . . PATRICK BEVERLEY really shined in back-up minutes last year, and he's part of the reason that Lin is expendable. He's strong defensively, and he proved capable of running the second unit. He'll be one of the league's top back-up PGs if Lin stays . . . Rookie combo guard ISAIAH CANAAN will be developed as a spot-up shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a roster filler . . . AARON BROOKS is around as a reclamation project . . . RONNIE BREWER provides a much-needed athletic perimeter defender. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS is an elite role player. He entered the league with the reputation as a pure athlete, but it's his ability to knock down the corner three that's made him so valuable in Houston . . . GREG SMITH looks like another great find for the Rockets. He's an athletic banger who can allow Dwight Howard to roam a bit on defense . . . DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS showed flashes as a rookie, but the stretch four looks like a situational role player for the foreseeable future . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA will lend a veteran presence to the second unit . . . Versatile TERRENCE JONES could be in for more minutes as the Rockets look for the right role players . . . OMRI CASSPI might be getting his last chance at the NBA. CENTERS: DWIGHT HOWARD should be much happier in Houston, though the Rockets still have to convince him that he can dominate as a pick-and-roll player. He should make everyone forget about his season with the Lakers . . . The fact is OMER ASIK just doesn't fit alongside Howard. But if he stays somewhat happy in Houston, he could be a valuable second-unit player . . . MARCUS CAMBY has latched on to chase a ring.

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

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Utah (22-45) at Houston (44-22), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Houston Rockets are hoping a return home will help them end a season-high three-game skid. A visit from the lowly Utah Jazz might aid them as well.

Houston will try to register their longest win streak at the Toyota Center in five seasons by sending the last-place Jazz to their 10th loss in 11 games Monday night.

The Rockets (44-22) went winless during a three-game road trip against teams residing in the top four of their respective conferences. Houston played two teams, Oklahoma City and Miami, that are each in second place and fell 113-104 to the Heat on Sunday.

The Rockets turned an 11-point deficit in the second quarter into a five-point lead with 6:13 to go but allowed Miami to outscore them 21-7 down the stretch. James Harden had 30 points after being held to eight in a 111-87 defeat to Chicago on Thursday.

"We're good. We're in a good place. (We had) two tough games in Oklahoma City and (Miami), and in Chicago we just had one of those games that a lot of teams have," Harden said. "So we go back home tomorrow for a good one."

After Portland's loss to Golden State on Sunday, Houston remained 1 1/2 games ahead of the Trail Blazers for fourth place in the Western Conference and home-court advantage in the opening round of the playoffs.

Houston will attempt to pad that lead over idle Portland while securing its first nine-game home win streak since a 12-game run Jan. 31-March 8, 2009. The Rockets will also attempt to send Utah to its fifth consecutive defeat and 15th in the last 18 road games.

The Jazz (22-45) let NBA-leading San Antonio have its best shooting performance in three seasons (62.8 percent) in a 122-104 road loss Sunday. Utah is 1-21 when opponents shoot 50 percent or better and the Jazz have let teams shoot at least 47.4 percent each of the last eight games.

Derrick Favors' career-best 28 points on 12-of-19 shooting and 10 rebounds provided a bright spot for Utah.

"This was a great night for me," Favors said. "My teammates did a good job of finding me in the post and in my spots, and I was hitting shots. Just one of those nights for me."

Favors had a double-double (14 points, 13 rebounds) in the most recent matchup with Houston on Dec. 2, and three other teammates topped 20 points as the Jazz snapped a four-game skid in the series.

Gordon Hayward had a team-best 29 points on 12-of-18 shooting while Trey Burke and Alec Burks each had 21. Harden led the Rockets with 37 points.

Harden scored 23 points in a 104-93 win in Utah on Nov. 2 despite twisting his ankle in the third quarter, and Chandler Parsons led the way with 24 points, 12 rebounds and six assists.

Houston has won in four of its last five home games against the Jazz and each of the last two. The most recent of those victories was on March 20, and Harden made 17 of 18 free throws en route to finishing with 29 points in that 100-93 win.
