You just scratch your head and wonder how they find the ways to lose these games.
The Rockets had a 6-point edge with 2 minutes to go, and a 3-point edge with 3.5 seconds left, but the Rockets did not foul to put Utah at the line in the closing seconds.
Matt Harping made the Rockets pay for the strategy, nailing a three-pointer with 0.1 seconds left to force overtime, where Karl Malone (33 points) and the Jazz pulled out a 103-101 win.
The Rockets were getting roughed up in overtime before Terence Morris hit two late three-pointers to bring the Rockets within two with 15 seconds left. The Rockets called timeout, but all they could get was a forced runner by Cuttino Mobley (2-13 from the floor) that wasn't really close.
For the Rockets, this loss is a killer.
