Richard Langford@@noontide34Correspondent IJanuary 29, 2013

The Utah Jazz (24-21) have never suffered through a home loss that was more lopsided than the 125-80 thumping laid on them by the Houston Rockets (25-22). 

The Rockets led by just six after the first quarter, but they won the second by 12 points and didn't look back. 

The Rockets ran the Jazz off the court as they outscored them 26-2 on fast-break points. 

This laugher snapped a six-game home winning streak for the Jazz.

Player of the Game: James Harden

Harden poured in a game-high 25, and he did so with a solid 8-of-15 effort from the field and hitting all eight of his free throws. 

Harden also added three rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block. 


What's Next 

The Rockets will look to extend their three-game win streak as they wrap up this two-game road trip in Denver against the Nuggets on Wednesday. 

This was the second of a four-game homestand for the Jazz. They will wrap up the trip by hosting the Hornets on Wednesday and the Trail Blazers on Friday.
