HOUSTON – In the first quarter against the Houston Rockets on Saturday, Utah Jazz guard Kris Dunn picked Jalen Green’s pocket and took it the distance for a two-hand dunk.

The slam gave Dunn his first points of the night.

He made his presence felt elsewhere though. Dunn racked up two rebounds, two assists, and a steal in his first eight minutes on the court.

Despite Dunn’s all-around performance, the Jazz struggled in the first half against Houston.

They made just 10 of their first 28 attempts from the field and 3 of their first 11 from deep.

Utah trailed by seven at the end of the first, 31-24.

Jazz Face Rockets To Open Six Game Road Trip

The Utah Jazz will embark on a six-game road trip beginning with a matchup in Houston against the Rockets on Saturday.

After winning 15 of their last 20 games heading into the road trip, the Jazz will look to continue their climb up the Western Conference standings.

The Jazz own the ninth seed in the West, 1.5 games ahead of Houston in the standings.

Utah will face the New Orleans Pelicans, Washington Wizards, Charlotte Hornets, Brooklyn Nets, and the New York Knicks before returning to SLC on February 1.

The Jazz are 6-4 in their last 10 road games.
