The Jazz and Rockets play the first in a three-game season series Sunday night.
Houston has lost three of its past four games, but the lone victory was a 96-95 thriller over Oklahoma City, which rolled to an easy 111-85 win over the Jazz last week.
Under new coach Kevin McHale, the Rockets average 97.6 points per game — seventh in the league.
"They are a good team," Corbin said. "They’ve bought into what Kevin is trying to do and they execute really well on the offensive end. ...
"Defensively, they are a tough ballclub. They are going to be physical with you. They want to create tempo for their offense by playing really good defense."
