HOUSTON: LAST SEASON: 65-17, lost in Western Conference finals.
COACH: Mike D'Antoni (fourth season, 15th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G James Harden (30.4 ppg), G Chris Paul (18.6 ppg), F P.J. Tucker, (6.1 ppg), F James Ennis (7.1 ppg), C Clint Capela (13.9 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Trevor Ariza, F Ryan Anderson, F Luc Mbah a Moute
KEY ADDITIONS: F Carmelo Anthony, Ennis, G Michael Carter-Williams
PLAYERS TO WATCH: A year after Anthony was not amenable to coming off the bench in Oklahoma City, the 10-time All-Star seems ready to accept a reserve role in Houston if it means helping the Rockets to a title. The addition of the talented Anthony, along with Ennis to pick up the slack on defense Houston lost in Ariza leaves the Rockets slightly better than they were a year ago when they lost to Golden State in the conference finals.
OUTLOOK: Harden, last year's MVP, and Paul should be even better in their second year together and Anthony adds a new dimension which greatly upgrades Houston's second unit. Ennis will have to pair with Tucker to provide a defensive presence and Capela must take another step this season after signing a $90 million contract this offseason if the Rockets hope to finally get past the Warriors and win their first title since back-to-back championships in 1994-95.
UTAH: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost in Western Conference semifinals
COACH: Quin Snyder (fifth season)
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Ricky Rubio (13.1 ppg), G Donovan Mitchell (20.5 ppg), F Joe Ingles (11.5 ppg), F Derrick Favors (12.3 ppg), C Rudy Gobert (13.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Jonas Jerebko
KEY ADDITIONS: G Grayson Allen PLAYER TO WATCH: Mitchell. His emergence keyed Utah's dominant run to close out the regular season a year ago. Can Mitchell continue to elevate his game in his sophomore NBA season? His rookie season exceeded all expectations as he carved an identity as an electrifying scorer. The Jazz benefited from his scoring punch late in games. Mitchell finished the season averaging 20.5 points while shooting 43.7 percent from the field.
OUTLOOK: Utah appeared headed for the lottery until putting together a dramatic turnaround over the final 35 games last season. With all of last season's key players back in place, the Jazz are counting on continuity and chemistry to help them become a serious postseason threat among Western Conference teams in 2018-19.
Mitchell, Utah not ready to roll over vs. Rockets

The Houston Rockets are in position to close out the first-round series with the Utah Jazz because they prevailed on a night in which star guard James Harden made just 15 percent of his field-goal attempts.

A return to form certainly wouldn't help the Jazz stay alive when the two Western Conference teams meet Monday night in Salt Lake City.

Fourth-seeded Houston has a commanding 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series despite Utah bottling up Harden for three-plus quarters in Game 3. Harden scored 14 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter as the Rockets posted a 104-101 victory.

Harden was 0-of-15 shooting through three quarters and finally made his first basket on a dunk with 7:34 remaining. He finished 3 of 20 from the field but also contributed 10 assists as Houston set itself up for a chance at a four-game sweep.

"We found a way to win," Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said in the postgame press conference. "We just didn't play well. We made silly turnovers. Obviously, James was 3 for 20 and we won with that.

"Normally, we would say, 'You can't win that way.' But because of defense, rebounding, big shots -- James was 3 of 20, but two were real big ones."

Houston won two home games by an average of 26 points before pulling out the close win at Utah despite shooting just 38.4 percent from the field.

The Jazz were deeply deflated after the game. Factor in that no team in NBA history has recovered from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series and Utah is facing staggering odds.

But struggling star guard Donovan Mitchell promises he and his teammates will put forth an extreme effort in Game 4.

"I don't think anybody is going to just lay over Monday," Mitchell said during a press conference. "I don't think that is going to be the case. I don't think that is what our organization is based on. ... It is an uphill battle, but we are not going to lay over and give them a game."

Mitchell scored 34 points in Game 3, but it was an uneven performance.

He missed 16 of 20 shots over the final three quarters to finish 9 of 27 overall. Worse, he had a wide-open 3-point attempt that could have tied the game with 8.7 seconds left that bounced off the rim, and the Rockets closed it out.

"It was not about that shot. We had so many chances to win that game," veteran swingman Kyle Korver said afterward. "(Mitchell) heard that he hadn't played as well as he wanted to the last couple of games. He put the whole thing on his back. For a young guy, (22) years old, it's really special.

"He's on a great path in the NBA and at the end of the day, this is going to be part of his story and part of his journey."

Mitchell is shooting just 32.8 percent from the field in the series while averaging 21.3 points. He scored just 30 total points in the first two games.

Harden isn't faring much better at 34.3 percent. But he is averaging 27.6 points and 8.3 rebounds and received plenty of help from his teammates in the Game 3 victory.

"I think everybody is comfortable in what they need to do in order for us to win," Harden said in a postgame press conference. "We have to go out there every night and play to the best of our abilities in our roles. If we do that, we have a chance to win every single night we play -- whether we make shots or miss shots."
