The Houston Rockets beat the Utah Jazz 100-87, they managed to pull away late, but Houston needed Clint Capela to swat anything that got near the rim finished with 12 points 15 rebounds and 6 massive blocks. Chris Paul contributed 27 points, 12 rebounds, and 6 assists. Capela and Paul came up big to stretch the series lead to 3-1 heading back to Houston.

The Jazz were without Ricky Rubio once again and he might have been the difference maker in a game that was closer than the final score would indicate. The Rockets extended double-digit leads on multiple occasions, but each time the Jazz would answer back with a run. One of the best battles of the night came down low between Rudy Gobert and Clint Capela. The two big men went at it all night long.
