Houston Rockets guard James Harden (13) and Utah Jazz forward Jae Crowder (99) scuffle over the ball during Game 5 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series in Houston on Wednesday, April 24, 2019.

Is there just one half of play remaining in the Utah Jazz's season?

The Jazz trail the Houston Rockets 46-42 at halftime of Game 5 of the teams' first-round playoff series. Utah has played well defensively but has struggled mightily on offense.

Here are some of the best reactions from Jazz fans on Twitter as the first two quarters unfolded.

The first quarter was particularly bad to watch, as the teams were tied at just 20 apiece after the first 12 minutes.

Despite the severe offensive struggles from the Jazz (32 percent shooting in the first half), they led by six with just 2:38 to go in the second quarter before the Rockets closed on an 11-1 run.

As the third quarter began with Houston quickly extending its lead to 12, this tweet posted before the game is perhaps quite appropriate.
