GAME NOTES : This is the fourth outing in a seven-game homestand for the Jazz, who've won 2 of 3 after beating Milwaukee 94-89 Saturday. . . . Utah finished 6-24 vs. Eastern opponents. . . . It's the third stop in a four-game trip for the Rockets, whose three-game win streak snapped with Sunday's 83-70 loss at San Antonio. . . . Houston star Tracy McGrady, playing despite a strained right hip sustained Friday, scored 26 but missed his last six shots Sunday. . . . Injured-list Rockets include Juwan Howard (knee), Moochie Norris (foot). . . . With a win Houston would notch its first season-series win over Utah since 1993.

Jazz have actually played suprisingly well against the Rockets this year...

It'll be close.

bleh. McGrady blew up for 44 points

SALT LAKE CITY - Tracy McGrady scored 44 points, and Mike James had 14 of his 16 in the second half to lead the Houston Rockets past the Utah Jazz 99-85 Monday night.

Utah tried everything from switching defenders to changing defenses and nothing worked to stop McGrady. He continued to hit shot after shot and by the time he started missing in the fourth quarter, Houston was already comfortably ahead with a 12-point lead. McGrady made 14 of his first 17 shots and finished 15-for-21.

Also of note

Notes: A well-known Jazz fan with season tickets behind the east basket, where he heckles opponents with a rubber chicken and other items as they shoot free throws, was ejected late in the third quarter. He received a standing ovation and several high-fives on his way up the stairs. ... Utah coach Jerry Sloan turned 63 Monday. ... Houston's road trip wraps up Wednesday in Portland.
