SALT LAKE CITY — Fresh off a dominating win over San Antonio on Tuesday where the Jazz broke a franchise record for most 3-pointers made in a game, they were ready to continue the momentum against Houston on Thursday night at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

The home crowd was quickly fired up after a couple early fouls on Rudy Gobert that led to his ejection. That continuous energy helped propel the Jazz to a 118-91 blowout victory over the Rockets.

Here are 3 takeaways from Utah's Thursday night win against Houston:
