Rockets Take Commanding 1-0 Lead in Series with Jazz

The Houston Rockets storm past the Utah Jazz, winning game one of their Western Conference Playoff series 122-90 at Toyota Center. 

MVP candidate James Harden led the way with a game-high 29-points and ten assists. Six Rockets players scored in double figures. Center Clint Capela, who has been recovering from an illness, had 16-points and a team-high 12-rebounds.

The 32-point spread was the second-worst playoff loss in Utah's franchise history. 

This is the second-straight year the teams have met in the postseason; the Rockets eliminated Utah in five games in the second round last season.

Game two of the best-of-seven series is Wednesday night from Toyota Center.
