  • Jazz's Jae Crowder: Enters starting lineup

    Crowder will start Saturday against the Rockets in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series, David Locke of the Jazz Radio Network reports.

    Crowder averaged 7.0 points and 5.0 rebounds over 19.5 minutes through the first two games of the series. Derrick Favors will instead come off the bench as the Jazz look to overcome a two-game deficit.

  • Jazz's Derrick Favors: Not starting Game 3

    Favors is not in the starting lineup against the Rockets for Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Saturday, David Locke of the Jazz Radio Network reports.

    Favors averaged 13.5 points. 9.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 23 minutes over the first two games of the series, but will come off the bench Saturday. Jae Crowder enters the starting lineup in his place.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Ties for team scoring lead in Game 2

    O'Neale poured in 17 points (7-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt) and added four assists, two rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes during the Jazz's 118-98 loss to the Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday.

    O'Neale was a surprising source of offense off the bench, flashing a hot hand from all over the floor. Coach Quin Snyder opted to give O'Neale extended run in a quest to find some much-needed scoring punch, and the second-year wing delivered in fine fashion. However, it bears noting the 25-year-old only logged 15 minutes during Game 1, so his playing time will likely remain difficult to trust from game to game during the series.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gobert: Double-doubles in Game 2 loss

    Gobert collected 11 points (3-6 FG, 5-7 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and two steals across 31 minutes during the Jazz's 118-98 loss to the Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday.

    Gobert was more or less up to his usual level of production during the loss, although his shot attempts were down compared to Game 1. The Stifle Tower has back-to-back double-doubles to open the series, extending a streak that dates back to March 21. Gobert will look to pick his offensive involvement back up and generate a 13th straight double-double when the series shifts back to Utah for Game 3 on Saturday night.

  • Jazz's Donovan Mitchell: Turns in Game 2 clunker

    Mitchell finished with just 11 points (5-19 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six assists, one rebound and two steals across 37 minutes during the Jazz's 118-98 loss to the Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday.

    Mitchell had vowed to improve on a Game 1 performance during which he'd shot just 38.9 percent, but matters only worsened for him Wednesday. The second-year guard is now shooting just 32.6 percent through the first two games of the series, with only a solid assist total Wednesday preventing his night from being a total fantasy washout. Mitchell and the rest of his teammates will look to pick up their respective games significantly as the series shifts back to their home court for Game 3 on Saturday night.

  • Jazz's Derrick Favors: Double-doubles in Game 2 loss

    Favors delivered 14 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 12 rebounds, three blocks and one steal across 22 minutes during the Jazz's 118-98 loss to the Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday.

    Favors came through with one of two double-doubles for the Jazz on the night, joining frontcourt mate Rudy Gobert in accomplishing the feat. The veteran big has been highly efficient over the first two games of the series while shooting 63.1 percent. Favors is averaging 13.5 points and 9.0 rebounds across 23.0 minutes during that span, and he figures to continue playing an important complementary offensive role against a Houston team that struggles to limit scoring in the paint.

  • Jazz's Ricky Rubio: Team-high scoring in Game 2 loss

    Rubio supplied 17 points (7-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and four steals across 32 minutes during the Jazz's 118-98 loss to the Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday.

    Rubio had the tough task of trying to defend James Harden for much of the night, a job at which he was unsuccessful the majority of the time. However, the veteran point guard's efforts on the other end of the floor were much more fruitful, as his scoring total led the Jazz's first unit during the loss. Rubio has been solid across the stat sheet to open the series, as he's averaging 16.0 points, 7.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 3.0 steals across 32.0 minutes over the first two games against the Rockets.

  • Jazz's Thabo Sefolosha: Good to go for Game 2

    Sefolosha (hip) is available for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    Sefolosha emerged from Game 1 on Sunday with soreness in his left hip. He's been cleared to play and will presumably receive close to the 15 minutes of workload he saw in Game 1.

  • Jazz's Kyle Korver: Available Wednesday

    Korver (knee) is listed as available for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    As expected, Korver will be able to play Wednesday. He played just 10 minutes off the bench in Game 1, scoring two points and grabbing a single rebound.

  • Jazz's Thabo Sefolosha: Questionable for Game 2

    Sefolosha is listed as questionable for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Rockets due to left hip soreness.

    Sefolosha scored just three points in 15 minutes off the bench in Game 1 against Houston, and he emerged from the outing with some soreness in his left hip. The injury doesn't appear to be too serious, but Sefolosha will likely end up being a game-time decision Wednesday.

  • Jazz's Kyle Korver: Probable for Game 2

    Korver is listed as probable for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Rockets with right knee soreness.

    Korver played just 10 minutes off the bench in Game 1 against the Rockets and appears to have emerged from the contest with some knee issues. His spot on the injury report, however, appears to just be precautionary.
