James Harden led the way in a 118-98 rout of the Utah Jazz Wednesday night by putting up a triple-double of 32 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. With the victory, the Rockets to a 2-0 series lead over Utah.

On a night where Houston never trailed, Harden had help from others. Chris Paul scored 17 points and both P.J. Tucker and Eric Gordon added 16 points.

Defensively, the Rockets were locked in. Clint Capela had three blocks and caused problems for the Jazz all game. Utah failed to score 100 points for the second straight game and only shot 21% from the three point line. Houston forced 12 turnovers Wednesday night.

The series will shift to Utah for game three Saturday night at 9:30pm CT.
