The Jazz seemed to have run out of man power Saturday night, as they fell to the Rockets 124-116.
In a high-scoring affair, the short-handed Utah Jazz could not find the resources they needed to put away a close road contest in Houston.
Gordon Hayward, Randy Foye and Al Jefferson all turned in 20-plus point performances, but it was not enough to make up for the Jazz players out with injuries.
The Rockets finished with seven players in double figures, led by forward Patrick Patterson, who netted 20 points.
