SALT LAKE CITYJazz guard Malik Beasley threw down a nice looking slam dunk during his opening minutes on the court in Utah’s game against the Houston Rockets.

The Rockets hosted the Jazz at Toyota Center on Monday, October 24.

With 4:50 remaining in the opening quarter, Beasley took advantage of a steal on Houston’s Kevin Porter Jr. The Jazz guard took the ball down the court and threw down a nasty jam on Rockets star Jalen Green.

Beasley’s dunk cut Houston’s lead to 14-10.

At the end of the first quarter, the Jazz trailed the Rockets, 21-18. Beasley had five points on 2-3 field goals, including 1-1 from three-point range. He added one steal and a block in five minutes of action.

This season, Beasley is averaging 11.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 0.7 steals in 25.3 minutes per game.

Utah’s game against Houston is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA League Pass, and KSL Sports Zone.

Jazz vs. Rockets

On paper, the Jazz game against the Rockets was set to be the easiest of their three-game road trip.

However, after two overtimes, and a late flight to Houston from New Orleans, the Rockets may present a tougher test than expected.

Houston has yet to win a game this season, but battled hard against the Atlanta Hawks and Memphis Grizzlies before a blowout loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Second-year guard Jalen Green has taken a big step in his game for Houston averaging 23.7 points per game over the first three outings while shooting a blazing 47  percent from the three-point line.

Kevin Porter Jr. is averaging 19.0 points per game and is shooting 53 percent from beyond the arc.

The Rockets are one of the least experienced teams in the league but are loaded with lottery talent and have the rest advantage over the Jazz who are playing their third game in four nights, including back-to-back overtime games.
