THREE POINTS

All That Jazz: Utah is one of four teams separated by only one game in the Nos. 5-8 spots in the Western Conference. The Jazz is 23-9 in its last 32 games, tied with Golden State for the West’s best record in that stretch. The surge is reminiscent of last season, when Utah went 29-6 down the stretch to earn the No. 5 seed. The Jazz plays its next four games at home, including Wednesday’s matchup against the Lakers on ESPN.

Furious Finish: Orlando and Charlotte have four- and three-game winning streaks, respectively, as both chase eighth-place Miami in the East. The Magic, trailing the Heat by one game in pursuit of its first playoff berth in seven years, hosts Philadelphia tonight on NBA TV before visiting the Heat on Tuesday. The Hornets, two games behind the Heat, host San Antonio on Tuesday before a four-game road trip. Miami has won nine of 12.

Hosannas for Houston: The playoff-bound Rockets have won 14 of their last 16 games to surge into third place in the West. Houston is a West-best 36-13 since an 11-14 start. In Week 24, James Harden and the Rockets visit Giannis Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee on Tuesday (TNT) and host Denver on Thursday (NBA TV). Harden (36.4 ppg) is on pace to join Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor and Michael Jordan as the only players to average at least 36.0 points in a season.
