The Third: Jazz 76, Rockets 63

After Kyle Lowry's 3-pointer makes it 49-47, Harris scores five points and assists on a Gordon Hayward dunk during a 9-0 run. The Jazz gradually extend an 11-point lead to 71-56 with 3:53 left.

The Fourth: Jazz 104, Rockets 83

The Jazz own a tenuous 10-point lead against the high-scoring Rockets. But Miles buries a 3-point shot, Jeremy Evans dunks twice and Alec Burks scores twice during a game-deciding 14-5 run.
