SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- The playoff series the Utah Jazz appeared
to have firmly in their control could be teetering.
The Jazz host the Houston Rockets tomorrow in Game 6 of the
best-of-7 series. Utah leads 3-2 and is just one victory away from
advancing to the second round, but the Jazz are also only one loss
away from a winner-take-all Game 7 back in Houston.
The Rockets not only staved off elimination by winning Game 5,
they did it by dominating more than either team had through the
first four games. The 95-69 win Tuesday was an example of how
quickly Tracy McGrady and the Rockets can pull away in a game.
The Jazz know it could also be pivotal in a series they have led
2-0 and then 3-1.
