Rockets Vs. Jazz Final Score: Houston Suffers 104-83 Blow Out Loss

The Houston Rockets were outscored 55-39 in the second half leading to a 104-83 loss to the Utah Jazz. Houston hasn't been the same team on the road where its record falls to 6-11 on the season.

With Kevin Martin struggling, Houston never could find a rhythm offensively to match the solid play of Utah's C.J. Miles and Devin Harris. Miles scored a game-high 27 points while Harris added 19. The two combined to hit 16-27 shots and drove the Houston back court crazy the entire night.

Luis Scola led the Rockets with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Goran Dragic added 14 points off the bench and Kyle Lowry pitched in 13. Kevin Martin finished with just six points on 2-10 shooting.

The loss drops Houston to 21-15 on the season and into a tie with the Dallas Mavericks for second place in the Southwest division. Utah improves to 16-18 but is still in last place in the Northwest.
